I had Fiona batch 4, then had it again a few weeks later, then had this beer another week later. They are quite similar, albeit the fresh Fiona 4 may be my favorite. I'm nervous after reading how some breweries accomplish their cloudiness, but the mouthfeel of these beers from Listermann are incredible. Smooth, creamy, and not too dry. The smell is borderline melon/tropical and citrus, but after consulting my wife, I think lemonade was the most prominent smell that I couldn't quite figure out at first. Poured a bright opaque gold. Dangerously drinkable. Wish we could have it in WV.

Drank on draft 4/24/19 @ Fischman's.

Dull yellow appearance. Minimal off-white head.

Mild orange citrus & faint wheat notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Mild notes of orange citrus & wheat.

Pleasant, but too mild. Not one to seek out.

Nice smooth IPA, surprisingly a little hazy and juicy with softness. Enjoy by date 1/14/20 printed on can. Pours a clean slightly hazy yellow color with some fluffy white head and spotty lingering lacing. Smells of dank ripe fruit, mainly mango, tangerine, grapefruit and lemon. Also some malt, bread, caramel and vanilla. Taste follows the nose, good balance and depth. Excellent mouthfeel, good soft feel with smooth mildness. Good carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

A - Pours a milky orange body, essentially opaque with mild translucence. A short white head fades, with lots of fine bubbled lacing.

S - The nose is full of hoppy fruit, from citrus to mango, passionfruit and peach, with hints of mint and pine.

T - Punchy fruit, stone fruit, mild pine, mango, a smart pith finish, mild but still dry.

M - Feel is silky in the open, some carbonation, quick close with no lingering weight.

O - Overall, this is a thing of beauty.
