Canned date of 11/17/16

Appearance - Pours thickly hazed and yellowish orange in color with a white, half finger head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving a mostly barren surface and a thin ring of suds around the edge of the glass. No real noticeable lacing.

Smell - Juicy, tropical aroma with notes of orange, pineapple, passionfruit, papaya and a hint of dankness.

Taste - Not quite as punchy as the nose leads on, instead a mellow juiciness. Mild notes of orange, passionfruit, mango and a tame pineapple. Faint pine. Underlying, doughy bread sweetness. Flavor dies quickly, leaving only a faint fruity bite in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Slick texture that turns slighty dry and chalky in the finish.

Overall - Amazing aroma that the flavor simply falls short of living up to. It's good, but there are several NE-style IPA's out there that I find to be far better.

Poured from a fresh can (4 days old) into a pub glass.

This is a beautifully cloudy unfiltered IPA that is juicy and refreshing. Its visual aspect is wonderful, with a completely opaque yellow shade. The smell is solid but nothing special, and the flavor is fairly simple overall but is done very well.

Strong citrus hop aromas/flavors, not much of a malt body, a very nice viscous texture, a smooth resin-heavy bitterness, and an acrid finish with decent linger. It merits a comparison to juice in a few different ways.

While not incredibly complex, this beer is delicious and crushable. Well worth trying.
