Smooth, juice bomb, hoppy but not a bitter aftertaste.

Dated 3/21. Pours orange cream color with abundant head. Smell is orange, cream, pepper. Taste is orange with an interesting pepper note at the end. Feel has a bit of a pepper note. Overall, slightly disappointed as I played this up in my head a lot, but still very good. It’s a pity I had this a month old at barely cellar temp. Would love to try cold and fresh.

This is it! The perfect beer. Never had one before, but this (on draught at the brewery) was the best beer I've had in my lifetime.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 4/11/2018. Pours opaquely hazy deep orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with amazing retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, orange juice, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, biscuit dough, light honey/toast, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, orange juice, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, biscuit dough, light honey/toast, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, orange juice, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/rind, light pepper/pine, biscuit dough, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Amazing complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready, lightly sticky, and slightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Minimal warming alcohol for 6.8%. Overall this is an insane NEIPA! All around amazing complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink; with the mildly bitter/drying finish, never aggressive. Spot on soft mouthfeel. Insanely juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank hop complexity; balanced bready malt/oat backbone, with mild lingering sweetness. A highly amazing offering, and spot on style example as expected.

Pour into a pint glass from a 16-ounce can. Beer is very much the color of the can it comes in. I get 2 fingers of head on a relatively aggressive pour. Tight bubbles creating a rocky head of foam. Looks like a 50-50 mixture of pineapple and orange juices. Best looking standard IPA I have seen so far. Nose is straight citrus fruits, again heavy on the orange and the pineapple.

Tastes like it smells. Most things taste like they smell, yes? What I appreciate most about this beer is that although it's a massive juice bomb it's also very very clean on the palate. Mildest bitterness possible front, mid, and back palate. Very, very good.

Soft in the mouth, can see carbonation migrating to the top of the glass on the periphery, but obviously the beer is impossible to see through whether it's held to the light or not.

Fantastic beer. Not a truly light IPA but still something that can be enjoyed all day long. Highest recommendation and easily worth the trip to the brewery.
