Pours an opaque pale orange like an unripe orange. Head formation is easy and abundant, netting two fingers after a slow pour. Head retention and lacing are both great. Aroma is tangerine, papaya, orange zest and mango puree layered over biscuity, toasty, bready malts. While it starts off 'juicy' with tropical fruits, it melds into a more lightly bitter malt-driven body. Some tropical fruit notes here come off a little artificial. Flavor profile is a little thinner, but more consistent, hitting notes of tangerine and papaya out of the gate, before guava, orange zest, and deeper, more ripe notes of papaya cut into it. Malts are hidden and glossed over. What is there in the way of malts is biscuity, doughy, and lightly bready. Mouth feel is lightly grainy, but breaks down to a watery, smooth texture. It maintains a medium thickness throughout. Overall, very juicy, particularly in the flavor profile. Tropical fruit notes are abundant, well established, and represented.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can. Orange can. Dated 11/9/18, consumed/reviewed 11/29/18.

Released 10/2/18; drank 10/10/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange/yellow appearance.

A rough pour yielded a huge bright white head; strong, frothy lace.

Grapefruit, pine & mild table sugar & faint dry grass notes in the nose.

Medium thick, sticky mouthfeel.

Grapefruit & table sugar flavors up front; bitter pine note son the finish.

Sure, it looks "hazy", but this is old model, brutal IPA ass-backwardsness. Permanent pass.

Forgot to rate in the past. Cloudy pour with plenty of foam. High level of carbonation, but this brings out the fruit flavors: pineapple, orange, grapefruit, papaya, lime and melon. Nice hazey body

22 ounce bottle into a snifter. Batch #3, maybe 3-4 weeks old when I had it on 12/25/16.

Pours an apricot color, cloudy, with a short head and some spotty lacing. The smell is lots of citrus- tangerine, lime, lemon, orange. Also resiny, with a light dankness, light malt, yeast. The taste shifts to a citrus and pine, or resiny balance, with the citrus showing tangerine, orange, lime, some mango. Light malt, less dank than the nose. Smooth, refreshing, a little dry for the style, a good body, well carbonated.

Bright citrus and resin, a great aroma, very good flavor. Enjoyable to drink. Certainly worth a purchase.
