Thanks to JLindros for sharing this growler.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave nice lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of light malts, solid bitterness. Good light citrus, faint sweetness with a little bready notes.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, decent malt sweetness. The citrus is rather lackluster, with really underwhelming bitterness.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, the body is rather light as well.

O - Overall this was a very underwhelming beer. Very generic and lackluster.

Growler redo, less than a week old, should be better than the last:
Same pour.

Nose much brighter, big citrus, tangerine, orange juice, a bit of pith, tropical notes with a little mango sherbert, orange creamscicle, pulpy pith, creamy malt and wheat/oat base, no onion this time around.

Taste brings more goodness, very creamy, wheat oatmeal thing but doesn't seem to be lactose thankfully although now I'm starting to wonder, plenty of mild citrus, like a tangerine clementine thing, a touch of mango sherbert, lots of pith and pulp, a little pine and perhaps oniony vegetal note very late and very light. Fair bitterness throughout.

Mouth is med bod, fair creamy, decent carb

Overall much better than the older growler, although not as good as most of their other IPAs I've had.

OLD REVIEW:
Growler filled 11/19 shared with rudzud

Big creamy rich 1 finger head that fades slowly, nice sticky lacing, murky apricot orange color 4.5

Nose mild tropical fruit but also dank green oniony notes, little pine resin, citrus orange zest, fruity melon papaya notes. 3.75

Taste brings mild citrus, pith, little tropical papaya, little orange, little stone fruit, mild melon note, mild bitterness, soft creamy malt, wheat oat like, h hint unripe tangerine. Finishes a little spicy hop bitterness, citrus notes 3.75

Mouth is med bod, little soft creamy, decent fluffy carb 4.25

Overall not great either, surprisingly mild, not bad just mild 3.75

Tap

Pours hazy orange, white lacing for a head. Smells of orange, grapefruit, and sourdough bread malt.

Flavor of grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and sourdough malts.

Medium body, tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Excellent hazy IPA, lots of good juicy flavor. Drinks easy, lots to like. Great flagship brew.
