Pours hazy orange. Tall, foamy, wet white head lasts a short time with light lacing.

Smells citrus, orange, tropical, mango, papaya and bready malt.

Tastes orange peel, grapefruit, light mango, tropical papaya, bready malt and melon. Finish is semi dry with an orange linger. Medium body and creamy medium carbonation.

Pours a murky, turbid orange with a finger and half of white head pouring out of a 6 day old crowler. Lovely head retention and lacing. Aroma is orange, mango, papaya, and honey with a hint of biscuit and earth malts. Flavor profile is splendid notes of tropical fruits and citrus, hitting notes of orange, mango, papaya, and melon. A dash of honey, layered of biscuit malts really round this out well. Mouth feel is a touch yeasty, and calcium-like. Not like to the level of chalk, but noticably grainy. Thickness lands just above the mid-way point on the scale. Overall, a great DIPA with lots of good qualities going on. The feel is a bit strange, but somewhat standard for the NE IPA style.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 32oz crowler.

Opaque orange juice. No head.

Smell is spicy and dank with creme de OJ.

Taste is dank and spicy OJ with crackery malt via a full to medium body with a thick carbonation and chalky swallow.

It's really delicious, despite my reservations.

A: Pours an extremely murky medium to dark golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate bright yellow + honey orange colored highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense sudsy foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a small patch of thin film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of tropical/mango, tropical/papaya, tropical/passionfruit, citrus/grapefruit zest, and floral hops over the to top of moderate aromas of cereal grain + biscuit malts with a moderate amount of honey-like sweetness.

T: Upfront there are slightly less than moderate flavors of cereal grain + biscuit malts with a moderate amount of honey-like sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of tropical/mango, tropical/papaya, tropical/passionfruit, citrus/grapefruit zest, and floral hops which impart a minimal amount of bitterness leaving lingering fruity + floral hop flavors.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and really pleasant hop flavors + aromas with minimal amounts of bitterness. Very enjoyable.
