Great blend of drinkability (especially considering the 6.8% ABV) & complex taste.

Best nose on a beer, I have ever smelled. Mouthfeel is amazing and the taste of Tangerines and Oranges shine through. Can't wait to try more TH beers!! Amazing.

a: ultra hazy dark orange amber matte color. 2 finger frothy white head

s: raw oranges, onion, mango, apricot, peach juice, grapefruit, pineapple, and a little bit of danky earthy herbal hops. the smell is a combination of the tropical fruity hops and that oniony aroma as well

t: the initial taste is like straight biting into an orange. sweet orange juice followed by the bitter orange rind. behind that is grapefruit, tangerine, and peach juice. there is a juicy pineapple, slightly under-ripe mango, and apricot. in the back there is a doughy presence that acts as a subtle backbone. the finish is that sweet orange juice.

m: the mouthfeel is a medium. the carbonation is forceful and deliberate. it acts to push the fruity flavors onto the tongue. there is also that sort of fullness in the mouth that you get from many of these NE IPAs

o: its a raw, fruity tasting IPA. it would be easy for me to say this is the standard for these NE IPA beers. its juicy and not overly bitter. at 6.8%, this is dangerously drinkable.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a lasting one finger white foamy head. Slow dissipation. Thin white speckled lacing. The aroma proceeds to sweet portions of citrus and tropical fruits while allowing a nice subtle crisp resin fresh backbone (in the malt?), seems like to me that the resin in the malt part?, hmmm, interesting. The flavor brings together the hops and the malts to blend fantastically allowing a burst of juicyiness in the full flavor and sliding into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a spectacular sessionability about it. Carbonation seems spot on for the style to allow the bitterness bite down on a great amount of harshness hitting my tongue. Overall, wow, holy crap and a half, New England juicy bitterness bomb, awesome. Definitely would have again.

If I had never tried other TH regular releases, I would say this is one of my favorite beers of all time. However, after having fresh haze, green and doppelganger, I think there are better, hoppier, more flavorful options at TH - within the regular release lineup. This beer is definitely a juice bomb NEIPA and I would drink it over 95% of beers out there, but it lacks the wow factor that fresh haze and green have when you taste them.
