This is a pretty pure and simple modern hazy IPA. Aromatics are great, looks like citrus juice. Taste is sorely missing a proper bitterness, leaving it a bit overly sweet. And it's a bit too heavy.bodied for me to enjoy more than 12 or so ounces. Not terrible but nothing I'd go back for.

This is orange juice beer, opaque and bright.
Smell has big sweet citrus and peach with an herbal twist that leaves me thinking of a sorbet. Almost ice creamy
Taste has some of the flavors from the aroma but also has a much more prominent dankness, an earthy/herbal character that kind of dominates. It gives the fruity character a bit of a stale note.
Mouthfeel is soft and heavy

From the can, it pours a hazy yellow color. A well retaining fingernail length head displays lacing.

The nose opens with citrusy and pithy notes of orange and grapefruit. This is followed by aromas of tropical fruit, including, mango, banana, pineapple and passion fruit. Sweet aromas of honey malt are contrasted with developing herbal and dank notes.

The taste is smacking juicy with a creamy and sweet honey malt base. Flavors of tropical fruit align with the aroma. Medium bodied with a soft and smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Herbal and peppery spices develop and contribute to the balance. These includes notes of pine resin. There is some crispness in the finish, as well as a light bitterness.

Juicy, smooth and full of big flavors. The hops spices add just the right touch for balance and drinkability. I enjoyed this.

On tap, Churchville Inn.

Hazy yellow. Medium white head. Excellent retention.

Strong citrus, tropical and floral.

Grapefruit, some leafy / grassy notes. Cracker base with some earthy notes.

Smooth, easy sipper.

Very good IPA.
