This might be the most crushable imperial I have ever tried. So much tangerine, papaya, mango with just the right bitter finish. Amazing medium full body with excellent soft carbonation. My lead for beer of the year. Brew this again boys!

L: creamy hay colored. Haze for days. Large head.

S: tropical fruits, berries, a bit of citrus. Intense and deep nose.

T: follows the nose. In line with New England IPA: soft and juicy, bursting with fruits.

F: creamy, no alcohol bite to speak of, thick and nice carbonation

O: one of my favorite other half beers of recent. Love that they have been dipping their toes more firmly in the NE style, while still retaining most of the characteristics (dry finish, etc.) that make OH such a singular brewer.

16 ounce can from the June 3, 2016 release.

Pours like a banana smoothie and looks like such in the glass. Big frothy, foamy head and plentiful lace. Milkshake or beer? I'm bout to start pouring these beers in my shake bottles and drink them at the gym. 3.75

Smell is pretty lovely, even at a month out. Pungent blend of mango and pineapple with some sugary sweetness like the nectars these two fruits produce. 4.25

Flavor is pretty damn on point. Grapefruit rind lays over everything, but beneath continue the mango, pineapple notes and hints of sugary nectar. 4.5

Zesty and bitter, but also offset pretty well by that nectary sweetness and a smooth as silk body. Drinks too easily for eight percent, resulting in me killing a can like a shot. 4.5

I'd call this a standout from the OH IPAs I've had of late, very good.
