A-a hazy orange amber color with two fingers worth of rocky white head

S-aroma is of citrus and tropical fruits

T-bitter hops with citrus and light sweet fruits

M-medium body and crisp carbonation

Overall a bit harsh in the amount of bitterness in this beer, some sweetness to balance it but overall doesn't make the most balanced beer

Bought a can at $3.99 yesterday. Pours like a nice hazy NEIPA but smells like a traditional DIPA. Taste is unexpectedly very bitter. I couldn't finish it--drain pour :/

(Served in a nonic)

A- This beer pours a deep orange body with strands of microbubbles supporting a sticky white head that clings to the glass after each sip.

S- The clean candy citrus hints lead to more full apricot hops and a nice green hop with hints of mint in the finish.

T- The lifesaver candy quality to the fruity hops leads to a nice pungent hop flavor that is full in the finish. The slight sweetness of malt comes through more as pale malt as the beer opens.

M- The light mouthfeel leads to a soft alcohol warmth and a nice carbonation bite that enhances the hops

O- The nice jammy or candy fruit flavors to the hops mixed with pungent green hop flavors means I couldn't stop sniffing this beer. The malt plays a nice supporting role and makes this beer very drinkable.
