Had this on tap at Orange and Brew. The look was definitely hazy orange color. The smell was nice, with grapefruit and mango. Lots of fruit. The taste was fruit up front with a little citrus tang to it. The alcohol was noticeable. A very good beer from Maplewood.

This brewery is criminally underrated in the haze game of Chicago. Pours a full-on hazy golden color with a glowing orange hue. Aroma hits you with cannabis dankness, bright passion fruit, yellow grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, lime, pineapple, and a distinct spice character. Taste is juicy up front that ends with a decent bitterness which I dig. Ripened passion fruit, yellow grapefruit, clementine, kumquat, cherry, lime, candied lemon, ripened pineapple, mango juice, cannabis dankness, spice, and pine resin. Low full body with a very soft and pillowy mouth feel. Once this one warmed up, it was pretty outstanding.

Canned 9/30/19; drank 10/6/19 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a big bright white head; thick, frothy tree-rung lace.

Orange soda & mild wheat notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Orange soda & dry wheat flavors; drinkable but not one I'll seek out again.

Sampled in a taster glass from draft at The Vine on July 22, 2019. Brewed with oats and wheat. Hopped with Moutere, Motueka and Mosaic. Notes of mango, grapefruit, and lime, with a hint of dried orchard fruit. Silky soft body.

An exceptional NE IPA. Had this one on tap at O'Tooles in Libertyville. Citrusy, hazy, and very well balanced. Not a hint of bitterness. This is one of the best I have ever tasted.

On tap. Poured a slightly cloudy, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of orange, grapefruit and toasted caramel. Sweet caramel taste with a citrusy bitterness.
