Opaque maize with a moderate white froth leaving a uniform garter lace.

Super fruity aromas of lime, orange, and even Fruity Pebbles absolutely explode on the nose, with slightly dank cannabis as well as some biscuit following.

Wow, this IPA is really nicely tangy, exhibiting a citric palate of lemon, lime and orange with a hint of cracker and a slight sting of allium and piney bitterness at the tail end. It must be reiterated it really has a true lime element that is absolutely unique and delicious, but as the fridge chill comes off, the spicy cannabic dankness arises.

Feel is crisply frothy, medium bodied, with a semi-dry finish.

8/16/17 bottle drank on 9/6/17

Excellent beer right here and loves up to the hype. Probably should be upping a few ratings actually. Nice hazy dark orange with a perfect head. Fantastic combo of ripe pineapple, grapefruit, pine, orange, and bitterness. Well done and will seek out again!!!

Batch 25 - 7/27/17. From bottle. Deep cloudy, orange color with medium-low foam head upon pour. Tropical and fruity aromatics which are matched by the abundantly juicy flavors. Pineapple, mango, orange... abundant. Feel is soft and smooth... maybe mildly dry but almost not. Very easy to drink.

This exceeded my expectations and is well deserving of the favorable reviews & scores.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip
Bottled 8/2/17

A- pours a hazy and murky golden yellow color with a one-finger foamy white head that reduces to a ring around the edge

S- big blast of juicy and resinous citrus hops; grapefruit peel, tangerine, orange pith & zest. Undertones of pine resin and fresh cut grass, as well as mango, guava, melon, muddled mint leaf, pineapple & peach

T- taste follows aroma up front with a blast of juicy and zesty citrus; grapefruit peel, pithy orange, tangerine & lemon. Mid-palate brings out tropical notes of pineapple, melon and mango. The finish gives some grassy notes, as well as pine resin. Linger of more citrus, malt held at bay

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a semi-dry resinous finish

O- juicy, resinous and super drinkable. This one lived up to the hype
