A: Yellow, cloudy, white head, not murky yeast slurry!
S: Huge pineapple, grapefruit, malt sweetness, tangerine, juicy fruit
T: Pineapple, bitter grapefruit, light malt sweetness, hidden alcohol, orange peel
M: Medium with light balanced carbonation
O: Does an incredible job of conveying the good parts of a "hazy" double ipa (appearance, juicy, balanced bitterness, lightly creamy mouthfeel) while also having the best parts of a straightforward great ipa (malt, no yeast burn, hop driven). One of the best double IPAs I've had in a long time and I could drink multiple cans of this

Poured from a 12 oz can into an Alesmith tulip

L: Cloudy golden pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head leave a great deal of lacing.

S; Grapefruit and citrus... tropical fruits. Juicy.

T/F: Follows the nose. Dank and juicy... grapefruit, pineapple, and mango. Mild melon and more citrus. Medium bodied... zesty carbonation. Bitterness very well balanced.

O: Another super drinkable juice bomb from Fiddlehead. Great flavor... super beer.

Pours hazy golden. One finger white head. Light lacing. Aroma of citrus and pineapple. Taste follows the nose with dank, pine and Mellon. Great dipa.
