Description: A hazy, cloudy appearance with a color that is sort of like apple cider but maybe a little lighter. White lacing but not much head. Aroma is full of tropical and citrus flavors (grapefruit, orange, peach) along with floral notes and some pine. Smell is deep and complex with several different layers. The taste is more bitter up front than the smell would indicate and that bitterness carries through to the finish. As it warms more of the fruity, floral notes make an appearance. Candidly, I wish the taste had been more consistent with the aroma. Mouthfeel is rich, velvety and much thicker than a normal IPA.

Suggested food pairing: Ahi tuna

Overall: 4.25 (This beer is good and I would likely have it again) This beer didn't really disappoint - it's a good beer - but I don't know that it lives up to the hype. The aroma was really great and maybe raised my expectations for the taste which I thought was a little bit lacking. All in all, not the best IPA I've ever had but certainly worth trying if you have the chance.

From a 16oz. can that has traveled the world better than I. 10-15-16 on the bottom. Poured into a 16 oz. pint glass. We're not wasting time with a tulip glass on this one!

Looks: Pours a turbid turbidity that is more turbid that I've ever seen before. An orange color somewhere between that of orange juice and our president-elect. The head stands up a full inch and never backs down.

Smells: Fruit fruit and more fruit. Citrus is apparent. So are other more tropical fruits. But there is so much I can' separate them all out. Fruity Pebbles could learn a thing or two from this beer.

Tastes: More of that fruit. Sweetness up front. Hops on the back. Neither one asserts itself over the other. They seem to be getting along OK. *shhhh* Just let them be. They'll be OK.

Feels: A thick and tangy blanket for my tongue. So heavy I keep making chewing motions with my jaw. Scientists would say I'm trying to macerate it. Scientists are dumb and use too many big words. Just drink it.

Overall: This is a pretty amazing beer. It is overwhelming on all characteristics. Yet somehow it all seems to balance out. This might be the beer that was spoken of in days of old before mankind lost his way and began writing things down!
