16 ounce can into a tulip snifter. Had 3/27/18.

Pours a hazy, bright orange, with a short, quickly dissipating head and spotty lacing. Aromas of pineapple, mango, orange, grapefruit, mango, some pine, light malt. Both a little dank and sweet smelling. The taste is orange, pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, some mango, malt. A good amount of hop bitterness up front, fairly sweet on the finish. Smooth, refreshing, a good lighter body, well carbonated.

Nice hop/malt balance, the sweetness works well in this one. Good, enjoyable, worth a purchase.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on March 13, 2018. Canned on 02-22-18. Triple-dry-hopped triple IPA. Notes of tropical stonefruit, mango and pineapple. Juicy and smooth. Highly recommended.

Super sweet and hides the alcohol very well.

Smell: Really sweet. Vanilla yogurt and Strawberry right away. With a sprinkle of booze. Underneath that your getting a malt sweetness with a little bit of a floral hop presence. A mild stone fruit presence is there as well. Peaches, apricot and pear. The beer smells sweet with a touch of booze and fruit.

Taste: Yeah the beer is weaker on the palette then it is on the nose. The malt presence really takes the lead and dominates this beer, with the fruit and hops playing second fiddle. The malt presence carries throughout the beer. The mid palette is where the fruit shows up I get strawberry, pear, and apricot. With a touch of vanilla yogurt showing up. The finish has a mild floral hop presence with a touch of passion fruit. The aftertaste is a mix of passion fruit and sweet malt.

Feel: Medium to full body. A light creaminess. The booze is actually really well hidden in the taste which is impressive.

Overall: This isn’t anything special it is alright, but the malt is to dominate in this beer. I definitely wouldn’t trade for this again.

Howler filled 9/9/17; drank 9/10/17 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dull orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice off-white head; frothy tree-rung lace.

Pineapple, cream & dry grass notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Tangy pineapple & cream flavors up front; dry grass notes on the finish. No booze heat.

The sweet & tangy vibe is a bit much for me, but it's balanced enough to enjoyable. The ABV is well hidden, be careful...

EDIT: the first canning run tasted strongly of cardboard & was poorly carbonated. Not going to change my rating until I give it a 3rd chance...
