Juicy aroma and flavor but with a good bitter bite at the end to offset the jucuines.

Can to becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-hazy golden to copper color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that left some light concave lace after dissipation. The aroma had some peach/apricot sweetness, light pineapple, sweet cream/vanilla, light sweet grassy notes and a light little bit of lemon at the end. The flavor leaned into the sweetness at first and then cued up a little bit of bitterness and a light kick of hop spice. Dry apricot sweet and jam-like aftertaste and finish. The palate was almost medium bodied, leaning a bit under and having a good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt good. Overall, pretty good IPA that I’d have again.

On tap. Really hazy orange color with white head. Aroma has juicy apricots and dank hops but overall it's quite mellow. Taste is also fruity with peach notes and some dank hops. Light to medium bitterness. Medium body, quite fizzy.

On draft, served in a goblet

opaque yellow golden in color, white head, good lacing. nice strong hop aroma - very fruity flavor. taste is somewhat sweet, the hop flavors dominate but it's not bitter. fuller bodied, soft mouthfeel.

Pours burnt orange with nice head. Nice lacing. Light hops aroma. Taste is tangerine, piney hops, candy fruit, sweet orange peel finish. Very tasty. Big fan of other half.

A: hazy tangerine juice color with a white cap on top

S: orange pith, mango , tangerine and a light pale malt base

T: tangerine dream, orange pith , grapefruit and pineapple. It's a fresh juice body with no pulp

M: light body that is thicker than the average IPA but not a neipa thick body

O: a great American IPA , enough to make you want it regularly but not the ddh juice spectacle some of their other offerings demand

Had this on tap at Valhalla in NYC. Poured a hazy medium gold with nice head, good retention and nice sticky lacing. Aroma was mostly citrus with a bit of dank tropical fruit. Taste followed, very nicely balanced with the fruity hops playing against the clean malt background and enough finishing bitterness to refresh the palate without being too dry or astringent. I was very impressed with this beer. Will seek out others from this brewery when next in the area.

Definitely more opaque, lighter yellow like pineapple juice. dry hop aroma, lots of amarillo, grass and hay. Taste profile is dry Citra, notes of pineapple, orange juice and grapefruit. Fairly juicy but nice earthy hop backbone. Good feel.

Canned 2/4/17 Enjoyed 3/6/17. Received a skunked can in a trade, unfortunately. I could tell it was once really good, so I will definitely seek this out in the future. Was a dark orange color, with a very mellow, water, sugary taste. It was still a decent beer, but nothing of what I expected. Stay tuned.
