4.16/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a can (2/4) into a small glass taster

L: opaque orange juice, on the lighter side. decent white head that stuck around for a few minutes, nice lacing

S: tropical fruits for sure, less in your face than other OH IPAs but certainly still there. Passionfruit/mango with a sharper citrus backbone

T: fruit carries through with a little more bite. A sort of spicy note I can't quite place, overall what I'd expect

F: well carbonated, smooth, medium body maybe a little thin but not off by any means

O: a good IPA, nice tropical notes and not overly sweet

Spent 5 and a half hours yesterday on Garnet St, Smith, then Centre in Brooklyn, to get this. Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Captain Lawrence muffin top taster; canned 2/4/20, code GO AWAY MAXIM. Obtained at the brewery on its release date.
A: Pours a cloudy, golden to aged brass color with a no more than one finger head with little more than a rim of retention but luxuriant rings of lacing.
S: Cracking the can, I got immediate white grapefruit, barley, and nectarine. Aromas include papaya, coriander, and a very strong showing of caramel. Pine in the background a bit.
T: Semisweet. Palate largely follows the nose, barley and coriander quite a bit more in play. Relatively and, I emphasize, relatively light bitterness for the style, but solid.
M: Medium bodied with moderate effervescence. Creamy and tingly.
O: A complex and evolving flavor experience. Glad I was there today and able to get this. Also, fair to say, I thank G-d for level headed OH aficionados and the NYPD.
