Canned 8/13/18.
L: hazy golden yellow. Completely hazy. About a finger of head with a good amount of lacing.
S: Orange, grapefruit, pine, and some earthy dank ness.
T: full of citrus and earthy flavor. Moderate bitterness and pine on the finish with lingering fruit-like sweetness. Very nice.
F: pretty incredible. Soft, pillowy and full. Low carbonation making it super smooth and creamy. Very enjoyable, ranks amongst the top.
O: highly enjoyable. Really glad I was able to grab a bottle. I would revisit again, and I’m grateful to have tried. Cheers!

Poured a hazy golden orange with a finger of white head that dissipated rather quickly.
Smells of pineapple, juicy oranges, apricot.
Taste follows with ripe pineapple, apricot, somewhat zesty citrus.
Medium bodied, smooth, good carb level.
Overall a great beer!

I always get nervous trying big-hyped beers for the first time, as the expectations are often unrealistic. But this one surpasses expectations in that is really does stand out uniquely and positively. The primary notes of uniqueness center around the strong onion notes in the nose and tongue, which are a little odd but kind of funky, and the strong, balancing stone fruit and tropical fruit characteristics that provide stellar IPA personality. Really delicious and memorable beer that I’ll happily drink anytime I find it.

Hazy light gold color with white cap and great lacing.

Aroma of bright herbal hops clearly displaying a ripe citrus character, I get pineapple and apricot.

Taste is a delightful mixture of the things found in the scent with an added sharpness in the hops. I don't really get the herbalness of the scent, rather a melange of fruit tones ranging from tropical richness to apricot lushness. Lots going on here, very complex flavors elevated to a highly sophisticated plane. This one has a fullness of hops without bitterness.

Medium full texture with balancing carbonation.

I wasn't very familiar with this brew so only picked up a couple when they arrived at the local. The manager suggested I get more if I wanted some because, "the go fast". Now I see why, it's actually a very approachable profile which combined with limited production makes for a desirable product even among those who might prefer a different style.
