Poured a cloudy orange juice body with minimal head and no lace. Pulpy, orange juice-like aroma. Smooth beer, thick, dense, pulp-like sweetness with bits of tropical fruits. Hops are bitter and crisp and lead to a snappy finish.

A: Pours a murky medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate burnt orange + bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a medium to large sized patch of thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Slightly heavier than moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of juicy tropical/mango, citrus/grapefruit, tropical/papaya, and tropical/pineapple hops over the top of just shy of moderate aromas of biscuit + caramel + wheat + oat malts and a just shy of moderate amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are just shy of moderate flavors of biscuit + caramel + wheat + oat malts and a just shy of moderate amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy tropical/mango, citrus/grapefruit, tropical/papaya, and tropical/pineapple hops which impart a hint of bitterness which fades away almost instantly leaving lingering citrus + tropical hop flavors.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially slightly crisp with a soft fluffy mid-body and light to moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol, pleasant soft mouthfeel, enjoyable hop profile, and just enough sweetness. Very enjoyable and I could definitely have a couple of these.

Cloudy honey color with a 4F head in a Spiegelau IPA glass. Good head retention.

Aroma: Floral, citrus aroma. Not strong but fragrant.

The taste broadens with warming. Citrus, lemon.

Excellent hoppy finish.

Excellent beer from Evil Twin.

Fine. But not nearly as good as the Souls series, and definitely not worth the $20, 4 pack price tag. Fingers crossed the men teach offering is better

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on August 15, 2018. I love the look and feel of this beer. Given the hops used I was expecting a little more aroma and flavor.

LOOKS: Looks like burnt oj pulp. Huge off white foam, that lasts. Lots of lacing down the glass.
AROMA: Big glass of Five Alive juice.
TASTE: Ditto. Mild bitterness. Lotsa juicy citrus.
FEEL: Soft, average carbonation, mildly sticky, dry on finish. Medium body
OVERALL: The mild bitterness builds as you drink, so, it is there. Lots of juicy notes. I like it.
