Pours fairly clear with minimal haze, appropriate white fluffy head. Aroma is citrus and vanilla. Flavor is pretty sweet but not cloying; creamy vanilla, orange, hops add more citrus and a nice little bitter finish to help balance out all the sweetness from the milk sugar and vanilla. Has an unusually creamy mouthfeel. Overall a fun beer, a bit on the sweet side, I could drink a 4 pack of this once a summer...

16 oz can into tulip. Dated 9/25/18 I think not a good stamp.
Look is very nice milkshake of golden orange. Nose is orange and tropical fruit. Taste is cream sickle and then ending with little bitterness as IPA. Feel is nice and medium creamy. Overall, very nice IPA. Can't drink a bunch at a time but will throw one in for a change. Would buy again.

Incredible. Subtle orange-sicle, just the right level of orange and vanilla. No artificial-tasting notes. Complex.

Chunky, hazy hop goodness. Mild IPA, full on orange creamsicle flavor.

Can (dated 6/13/18) to tulip glass.

LOOK: Bright Orange, Hazy, Small white head.
AROMA: Orange and vanilla, yeah, it's pretty much a creamsicle.
TASTE: taste brings in some other flavors besides the orange/vanilla/lactose. Lemon rind, ash, vegetable. Finish has some rye character to it. Tasty and interesting.
FEEL: Medium body, light carbonation.


Not bad, but I feel like the beer drains you as you go. The strong orange and lactose are appealing at first, but get old pretty fast. I've been lowering the numbers as I've been detailing the tasting notes.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar consisting of moderate sized bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of vanilla are present along with hints of orange citrus.
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of vanilla flavors along with notes of orange peels.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, very creamy and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer smells and tastes just like an orange creamsicle. I particularly like the vanilla and creamy mouthfeel.

Serving type: can
