Had this poured on tap into a .5L glass at Old Stein Inn Bier garten. Hazy and very juicy like fresh squeezed......mouth full of citrus with a good balance coming through. Hides the 8.8% AB very well.

Really delicious beer with predominantly orange sherbet flavor with low bitterness. Pours an opaque, hazy orange color with minimal head. Mouthfeel is incredible, creamy with soft carbonation.

Dangerous beer. Easy drinking with a higher ABV. A six-pack could disappear very quickly. Not labeled as a session beer, but about as easy to drink as one.

pours a beautiful lightly hazy orange, decent head. lots of hop aroma with a booze smell to the finish, thankfully it drinks really easily and for the ABV it is damn smooth! Im not sure I like it better then regular Pulp but this beer is a solid crusher!

Appearance: hazy orange with a 1/2" head that lingers around a while.

Smell: tropical fruit is easily detectable.

Taste: caramel, grapefruit, mango, orange peels, and some lighter pine tones arrive late. There is a dank bitterness here too. Alcohol is barely noticeable.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp at the finish. Long lasting aftertaste.

Overall: an enjoyable DIPA that is slow sipping but yo can easily have more than one of these.

On tap:
Pours hazy with a burnt orange color. Head is a film of fluffy white bubbles, with big soapy bubbles at the rim. A few sheets of lacing. Ok body with a nice top.

A lightly bitter orange hits my nose, almost like an orange rind. Genetically fruity to floral - orange blossom is an impression I get at times.

Taste is much like a few East Coast IPAs I've had, with the orange juice from the nose taking the lead. Easy on the tongue, the beer feels full on my palate. The juice dies fade to a tingly pine bitterness that only wipes part of the orange flavor away.

Enjoyable beer, though the tingle at the end from the hops or alcohol is a bit more than I'd like. Otherwise this compares decently in flavor profile to some of the Aslin beers I've had (though it is a bit more normal looking).
