Notes: No time and no space. Life beyond life. An experience transcendental, originating from within and projected through the third eye. Relax. Take a journey of the mind. Open up to the possibilities beyond your mortal coil. Follow the lines that lead to your inner twisted galaxy. Unravel it, question it, understand it.

Poured from a tall can into a tulip.

Pours hazy/cloudy orange-gold with a nice fluffy head, solid retention and good lacing. It looks every bit an NEIPA.

The nose is hit with ruby red grapefruit, orange, pineapple, lemon, lime, mango, and white pepper.

The brew is well balanced between solid malt sweetness and citrus hop bitterness, with plenty of white stone fruit and tropical fruits as well.

Well balanced, medium-full bodied. It is creamy, yet well-carbonated and moderately crisp.

An excellent NEIPA.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange body. Nice white head. Chunky thick collar.

Smell - Doesn't smell the way I expected it to. It's very tropical, but has a must or mineral aroma too. Kinda detracts. Doesn't smell that sweet.

Taste - Much more dynamic. Orange, some piney hops, lots of tropical fruit. Grainy and a little bitter in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe pushing medium heavy. Creamy carbonation texture.

Overall - Wasn't enthused at first, but this really grew on me. Very tasty.

Taste: spiced juicy grapefruit hops, dry clean finish. Same with the nose. Gold hue, hazy, with a white head and some lace. medium body. For all the IBUs this not bitter which I like. 100 IBUs
