A: Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with 2 fingers of head that slowly fades down to a thin cap that leaves good lacing

S: Lots of citrus and tropical fruit up front along with a touch of pine and stone fruit

T: A bit more mild than the nose. Starts off with the citrus and tropical fruit notes and slowly goes into a moderately bready maltiness that balances the bitterness of the hops well. Stone fruit rounds things out. Finishes with lingering citrus rind bitterness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very nice IPA that is well balanced while still hitting the hops hard. Easy to drink. Worth checking out

Pours a very slightly cloudy deep amber with a quarter inch white head that left a lot of lacing. Smells of citrus fruits, tropical fruits and sweet malts. Tastes of peach, orange, grapefruit, mango, hint of malt and citrus rind. Flavor is kind of mild as compared to the smell and I think of this more as an IPL rather than an IPA. Light bodied, medium carbonation, slightly dry finish.

16 oz. Can
Canned On: 11/13/17

Poured into a Trillium glass a very nice hazy dark golden orangy color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger plus white head, which also leaves some very nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach), pretty nice diesel like. The taste is pretty nice hoppy, malty, pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach), pretty nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a very nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a pretty tasty brew. Addictive! Orange Julius! Glad to have gotten a chance to try this one. Thanks Bill!

Pours a hazy dark orange gold color with a half finger soapy head.

Aroma has lots of tropical sweet tones like pineapple and mango. The scent is heavy and almost candy-like

Taste does not come across that sweet though (which is a good thing IMO). Instead the up front hops are relatively mild with more citrus notes. There is a tartness that kicks in midway through and it finishes with just the tartness. The flavor comes across as fresh and bright.

The malt is fairly low leaving a clean crisp feel to it in addition to being soft and unsticky. It is also a little more than average in fizziness.

Overall I think this is a great addition to the Morph series. I am a little perplexed by the difference between the smell and taste but in the end its the taste that does it for me. I would certainly pick up more of this should it stay around.

160z can dated 11/14/17 purchased at Moonshine Liquors in Harwich. Typical amber color and citrusy nose. Citrus on the taste may include tangerine and grapefruit with some sweetness (peach?) and some grapefruit on the finish. Flavorful, not complex and easy drinking.

Pours a hazy golden straw with a thick white rocky head that settles slowly and leaves strata of lacing down the length of the glass. Aroma of pine resin with a faint trace of citrus. Taste follows nose - although I think some of the bitterness may have been blunted by my spicy dinner. Crisp and clean feel. Overall very tasty.
