Bomber can w/ 1/5/17 on the bottom

Typical new fangled NE clouded juice bomb presentation....super hazy dull near orange juice looking liquid, under a frothy eggshell head. This one does leave great looking windowpanes of all the way up the glass sheeting patterns

Nose is loaded with tangerine/clementine/orange, even me with my challanged sniffer, can smell this from about 3 feet away

On the palate, its got some moderate onion/scallions/chives thing going on as well as the above mentioned tangerine/clementine/orange. So better then average complexity and interest going on here....

this beer was added in 2013..has it always been the same beer..if yes they were well ahead of the times

nicely done...tasty fruity juice bomb..great lacing to boot!

Soft hue with light frothy head, modest lacing. A juicy haze though not pulpy. Smell is citrus zest - unsurprising - with a light dankness, herbal kush / pineapple and tropical leaf litter. Taste is juicy, light, great balance with side of tongue bitterness. Soft and slightly chewy mouthfeel with a pleasant malt note. Perhaps some oats in the mix to give it that roundness and bit of presence.

Just a great beer. Not quite Mago Tago but delicious.

32oz. growler into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303. A horribly named beer.

Pours a foamy, .5 finger flour white head with moderate retention. Beer is a clear pale yellow with sticky, layered lace that really marks where the beer ends up. A pretty nice looking beer. Great color.

Nose is sweet citrus, mounds of cane sugar, pine, dank hops, mango and starfruit. Super juicy and aromatic!

Opens citrus. Hints of orange rind, cane sugar, pine and pineapple. Juicy with huge tropical fruit notes in the middle and just a hint of hop bitterness in the middle and end. Finishes with a display of the soft malt body. Foamy with more citrus. Delicious! Huge flavor.

Light bodied with moderate to ample carbonation. Lively and quenching in the mouth and goes down soft and juicy. Finishes wet with a lightly lingering aftertaste that begs you to go back for more. Unimaginably drinkable.

I don't know if its possible for me to have too much of this beer. So much flavor with such a quenching mouthfeel. The alcohol and body of an IPA with the flavor for a DIPA. Outstanding!

Clear golden color with a big white head and nice lacing. Big notes of clementines, light dank, fresh cut grass and citrus zest. Medium side of light body, nicely carbed, soft and clean on the finish. Overall an amazingly citrusy IPA that does clementine flavor very well.

On tap at TRIA in Philadelphia. Kind of a hazy pour into a tall stemmed tulip glass. Awesome fruit aroma and citrusy flavored. Very refreshing ale from these folks. Glad we're seeing more of their ales in downtown Philly!
