Hazy, translucent orange with a soapy white head. Retention is a thin ring. Lacing is smearing, creamy, and excellent.

The nose offers orange rind, orange marmalade, dried apricot, mango, papaya, pineapple, earthy dankness, cannabis, some bready sweetness.

Upfront, there is citrusy candy sweetness. Candied orange peel, orange juice, mango, papaya. Bread and sugar cookie sweetness in the middle. Near the finish you get pine, lemon, pineapple, and banana. The finish and aftertaste offer a lingering bitterness that creeps up on a it, a hoppy herbal bitterness of basil and spices. My burps taste like bananas. I suspect some form of hefeweizen yeast is being used.

The mouthfeel is creamy, slick, oily, smooth. Lightly carbonated. Greasy on the palate.

A really good showcase of dank and tropical fruit flavors. One of the best local beers. A little too malty-sweet, but close to New England in style. A great beer and a pleasure to drink.

Surprisingly not bad. Tasted like a tea to me but in a good way.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a hazy copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits, citrus. Taste is piney, I didn't get that in the aroma, citrus, malts, moderate bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

16 oz pour at the Old Toad in Rochester, New York.

One of the darker IPAs I've seen- a garnet, murky reddish color. 1 finger small head. Appears well carbonated, not a whole lot of lacing to be seen.

Smells great. Pine and citrus dominate. Some pineapple and grapefruit.

Tastes great as well. The aforementioned pine and citrus, plus a pretty prominent malt flavor. The malt flavor is very earthy, toasty, almost caramel-like. A very well balanced IPA, but would prefer stronger, brighter hop flavors over the malt. A sweeter IPA, when I tend to prefer drier ones. The hop flavors are very nice, nonetheless, and I quite enjoyed the pint.

Mouthfeel is appropriate for the style. Medium bodied, good carbonation.

Would like to look out for more offerings from this new local(ish) brewery.
