look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bright orange, white head referees and leaves bands of lacing. Tropical aromas with grapefruit and pine. Tastes moderately sweet with a lot of tropical fruit, grapefruit, pith and pine. Finishes clean and bitter. Soft, creamy mouthfeel with great carbonation. Very tasty beer.

A: Pours an extremely murky dark golden burnt orange in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate amounts of dark golden yellow + orange + dark amber colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense creamy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy tropical/mango, citrus/orange, citrus/orange zest, citrus/tangerine, and dank resinous hops over the top of moderate aromas of biscuit + oat + honey + caramel malts with a slightly stronger than moderate amount of caramel+ honey sweetness.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of biscuit + oat + honey + caramel malts with a slightly stronger than moderate amount of caramel+ honey sweetness. That is followed by just shy of strong flavors of juicy tropical/mango, citrus/orange, citrus/orange zest, citrus/tangerine, and dank resinous hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving a lingering citrus/orange marmalade hop flavor.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp upfront with moderate amount of soft/fluffy creaminess that lingers through the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a nice soft/fluffy/creamy mouthfeel. Enjoyable citrus + tropical with a hint of dank hop profile. I would definitely have this one again (maybe I will stumble upon it on draft somewhere as cans appear to be gone).

10/23/18 canning of this collaboration with Evil Twin... Coming in at 8.5% abv, it is a double dry-hopped double IPA featuring Citra, Motueka, and Idaho 7 hops... Pours a murky gold color, opaque like dark orange juice under a finger of creamy white head that trailed fine lace motes all down the glass... Aromas of dank orange citrus and cantaloupe, lightly floral with a hint of marmalade and biscuit... Flavors follow, with lots of rich juicy citrus, some danker, herbal undertones, and a jellied sweetness with a moderate bitterness... Plush and smooth, softly carbonated with a tingle of citric tang, and a little bit of pulpiness in the feel... Really enjoyable stuff, and definitely recommended to fans of big-bodied DIPAs...
