Pale yellow haze. Nose is candied grapefruit and resin. Taste is very grapefruit forward, buoyed by some stone fruit and pine resin. Good, clean malt backbone. A little lingering bitterness.

Poured from a can (21Jan2022) into a teku

L: pours a completely opaque, slightly muted light yellow orange. Huge, dense white head - fades slowly, leaving chunky lacing as it does

S: great, fruit-forward nose - rich, juicy, balanced. Pineapple, mango, some navel orange, bit of peach. Gummy candy, nothing piney/bitter. A bit of a hay vibe toward the back, as it warms. Nice aroma overall - full but not overpowering, like it

T: delivers the nose well, lots of fruit with balanced sweetness and no real bitterness. Mango and pineapple, gummy peach rings - slightly sweet and tasty. Some slight orange citrusy bitterness, comes through toward/in the finish - more a contrast to the sweetness, just a bit!

F: medium carbonation, medium body. Smooth, fairly full, not creamy

O: big fan of this. Feel like some singles from OH can be a little meh - this brought great aroma and flavor, in a very drinkable package. For a 7% brew, pretty hard to beat

Cloudy gray-hued light yellow with three fingers of off-white head with rocky dissipation and soap scum lacing.

Big underripe citrus in the nose with a definite “green” quality to it. Maybe a hint of cat pee. Delicious smelling.

The taste has similar elements but also a mild sugary sweetness to it that’s only somewhat tempered by some dull bitterness and slight pepperiness in the finish.

Exceptionally creamy and slick mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

Definitely one of the better NEIPAs out there. Highly recommended.

Pours a hazy light golden color, like watered down orange juice. Weak nose, faint orange, citrus, sharp pungent aroma. Very hop forward, not a lot in the malt department. Sharp and crisp, loads of mango, papaya, pineapple, orange, lemon. Big mixture of citrus and tropical flavors. Crisp and refreshing, nicely carbonated. Overall this is a very drinkable IPA, just not my style (tastes overly dry hopped).

16 oz can dated 1/3/18 (thanks Adam)

01/03/17 stamped on the bottom of a tall can

Pours like a typical quality looking NE IPA, nice long lasting light khaki cap and leaving ample slippery blobs and bands of lacing.

Nose is loaded with fresh tropicals, nice sniff here....

Fresh, flavorful and loaded with pineapple, lime, mango, orange notes...OH continues to churn out a load of high quality cans every stinkin' week...great stuff, go get some

Poured from can. Dark golden color. Hazy. Not getting much nose. Taste is thick and juicy. Slightest linger on the tongue.

A: Chalky gold to start. Starts to glow over time, burst of orange more and more apparent. Creamy off-white white. Frothy, whispy lacing.

S: Not outrageous on pop of can. Aroma has mellowed over the past couple weeks. Sweeter tropical melon, twist of lime, pure orange oil. Earthy, woody grapefruit with cedar.

M: Pleasant citric snap. Dusty comes to mind, but the body is pretty light, and the carb is moderate so it doesn't come off crazy big in body.

T: Orange-tangerine heaven. Doughy malt really persists; a touch of herbal, vanilla sweetness comes from it. But it's really quite musky, dank and earthy. White grape, lychee fruit, and a hefty dose of lime to finish.

Deep muddied gold, opaque, topped with an ivory head of foam. Aromas and flavors of dank orange citrus pith, has earthy and musky undertones with brighter points of tangy juice. Medium-light weight and feel, smooth with a slowly gripping bitterness. Moderate sweetness and soft carbonation. Spot-on for a Citra IPA. 3/10/17 canning.
