look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Cloudy and opaque, golden colored with a thick frothy head of inch-high foam that lingers long. Looks like a glass of orange juice. Aroma of citrus and mango, bits of pineapple. Flavor matches the nose, very tropical, tangerine, orange rind, ruby grapefruit rind, pineapple, mango, and piney bitter lingers. Assertive bitterness, tingly mouthfeel. I am not at all a fan of the chunky/turbid/murky "New England style IPA" abomination that seems to be crawling into the craft beer world, and although this selection was a bit cloudy, it's all right by me. Really good beer.

500 mL bottle. Pale hazy orange. Smells of sharp passion fruit. Musty and a little funky. Very odd. Tastes hoppy up front. Spicy hops. Aggressively bitter. The passion fruit is very sharp and almost acidic. It tastes as if it's bretted. Medium light body. High carbonation. Not my favorite.

Very cloudy appearance. Whitish straw color. Tiny head with a couple of initial spots for lace.

Raw, weed-like smell initially.

Very west coast in style -- strong raw, green hop that tastes like oregano and pepper. The malt stands up well but definitely plays a background role here. The body leans thin while the carbonation is also lower than expected. Strong, bitter aftertaste.

A: looks like pineapple juice in a glass

S: smells like a very faint sour Orange

T: up front it tastes like a sour Orange/lime/pineapple combination, then a very slight cracker malt and then it finished with a sour bitter note.

F: this beer has a really nice mouth feel, hangs onto your pallet for a few seconds. Perfect for the style and ABV.

Overall this is another very solid beer for Kent Falls!

Hazed golden orange, big white head, lots of laceSmell is fruity, perfume like and buttery, passion fruit is pretty apparent but mango is subtle, floral as well. Taste is perfumey, floral and fruity, almost a bit sour/tart upfront, mildly bitter. Medium carbonation, medium body. Not for me, I didn't get through much of this to be honest.
