Turbid and juicy, with a citrus-froward flavor profile. Aroma was all lemon shortbread cookies. "Orange pith puree" is my short review for this one, another solid entry in Monkish's biweekly IPA can releases.

5/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: cloudy, hazy unfiltered. Looks like orange juice but a bit lighter. Like its half OJ and half fresh pineapple juice.

Aroma: absolutely killer, fruit juices for days. fresh green hop matter. I don't smell malts or bread sweetness. Just the hops, the fruity interesting yeast and just a tropical blend. Mainly Orange juice and pineapple notes.

Taste: amazing. I can't even describe how good this is. Tree house, trillium and nigh shift have some serious west coast competition.

Mouthfeel: fuller and creamier than expected for a 7% IPA. velvety, smooth and perfect.

Overall: I love this beer. I think I like Foggy window more but that might just be because i had it super fresh and on tap but still, this was a super awesome treat. one month old and still holding well.

T: Follows nose. Orange juice. Bitter hops on the finish.
M: Light prickly carbonation. Medium body.
O: Really enjoyed this beer. This was my first time trying a NE style IPA and I'm looking forward to having more in the future.

Yet again another amazing IPA from Monkish. This continued East Coast style IPA brewing that they are doing is really hitting its mark. Color actually looks more like orange juice. Smells of mostly amarillo and galaxy hops. Taste is fantastic making this taste like a hybrid of west and east ipa's. Essentially juicy with a lingering earthyness you get from the west. Cannot wait for the next two upcoming releases.

This is a great take on what the East coast is doing with IPA's by a brewery in LA, Finally a "West coast" Juicy, Hazy IPA! Definitely worth picking this up if you can find one, or two.
