Milky yellow appearance. Completely opaque. Capped with a creamy white head. Great retention and lacing.

Orange, peach, pineapple, and vanilla on the nose. Nothing really pops, though.

Tastes like orange, peach, and pineapple upfront. Raw dough and vanilla, with some whipped cream on the finish. Surprisingly clean finish, with a touch of earth.

Very creamy and rich mouthfeel, lightly carbonated.

Decent beer - drank at the brewery itself a few months back. Good mouthfeel with limited taste of banana. I actually really enjoyed this one - solid citrus and full mounthfeel. A bit too bitter for me.

Had it a second time in Brooklyn. This is the original ROC beer, the head brewer there is not the original one. Much better on second time, more like a smooth ice cream, with hops. Still overwhelmed by their better Brooklyn made offerings, at this time. BTW it was just called Viridian initially, and has now morphed into this name.

Can: Poured a cloudy/hazy yellow color ale with a medium size foamy head with some good retention and some lacing. Aroma of hoppy floral undertones of citrus with some tropical notes and lactose is enticing. Taste is a mix of hoppy floral undertones of citrus and tropical notes with some lactose and a creamy rich finish. Body is full with nice creamy texture and good level of carbonation. Enjoyable juicy hoppy beer with lactose rich finish.
