Thanks to a ninja box from a terrific BA - finally able to tick this legendary wish list beer. Thanks, man!

I actually didn't know much about this beer before opening it, which is silly, since it was a wish list beer - but it seems to jibe nicely with my preferences in a beer. Very minimal bitterness, nice light tropical fruit notes, clean, soft, soft - it drinks very easily. As was also noted by another BA friend, I do get some interesting Belgian yeast notes, which is curious and probably totally off-base - I suspect that may be lingering esters, some of those interesting fruit notes. Tropical can occasionally come off that way in my experience.

I like this - it's quite good. It's light and clean enough that it could be a regular drinker, without getting exhausting for your taste buds. That's something I think a lot of new hazy IPAs are lacking - too much lactose, too bright, too sweet. This is alcoholic enough that it wouldn't be advisable, but I wouldn't mind drinking several.

Yum.

On tap at Morris Tap & Grill in Randolph. Pours a golden, effervescent hue with moderate frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of citrus, pine, and grapefruit. Similar overall profile.

A: murky/hazy pale orange color with some faint amber notes. 1 finger frothy white head

S: creamsicle, melon, mango, passionfruit, sweet oranges, and tangy pineapple

T: guava, passionfruit and pineapple. Sweet oranges, mango, and grapefruit behind that. A hint of herbal hops as well. A touch of dry crackers at the end

M: medium mouthfeel with low carbonation. Not quite fluffy

O: a really solid beer here. A mix of NE and traditional IPA. Earthy and juicy with a touch of bitterness from the citrus and herbal notes

L - 1.5 finger bright white head atop a gleaming, translucent orange body.

S - tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, herb. Yes!

T - pineapple-forward, with tangerine and grapefruit sliding in after. Very dirty, earthy middle, with noticeable dankness and alcohol on the finish. Moderate-high bitterness. Low sweetness. Moderate booziness.

F - medium-full body with below average carb.

O - love the bitterness here. Just wish the booze was a bit less present.

This beer crushes it. Pours pale orange somewhere between clear and cloud. Beautiful rich hoppy nose with lots of citrus notes and some melon. Full mouth feel like a meal in a can. Balances the bitter and the citrus well with more aromatic orange types like tangerine dominating the palate. A very mellow aftertaste as balanced as the taste with a little spice feel in the mouth.

I got a can of this from a beer store across the street from Standard Tap in Philadelphia. It poured a hazy golden with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had citrus. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with slightly sweet citrus peel presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.
