16 oz. Can
Canned On: 09/18/17

Poured into a Squatters true pint glass a very nice cloudy yellow/orangy color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger white head, which also leaves some pretty nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango, pineapple), pretty nice little diesel like. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango, pineapple), pretty nice little diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very tasty brew. Addictive! Orange Julius! Glad to have gotten a chance to try it. Thanks John!

3.6/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: pours a quarter-finger, quickly receding bubbly head, with an opaque body, reminiscent of orange juice.
S: smells of citrus and passion fruit, especially fragrant, like a fruit juice cocktail.
T: the amount of bitterness is surprising here, not unpleasant or overbearing per se, just a tad unexpected, and the fruit here is surprisingly understated, though there is a decent amount peach and citrus. It is decently sweet, though not too much, and there is a subtle undercurrent of cheese that is not painful but not quite pleasant either
M: full and resinous
O: It's a very good beer, not a great one, I prefer homestyle to this personally, but that's just me.

A can dated 9/18/17

L - Amber/orange, opaque, small head with minimal lacing

S - Huge citrus, grapefruit, orange, and pineapple with a nice, bitter punch underneath.

T - The bitter hops hit first followed by some tropical and citrus flavors but very understated compared to the bitterness.

M - Medium carbonation, lingering bitter finish.

O - The smell is the best part of this beer. It's lacking a lot of flavor, not it could be the age. Still a very nice beer.

Pours a fairly clear bright straw yellow with a thick white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is pine and mild citrus. Flavor follows the nose with a bit more authority. Feel is soft and lightly carbonated. Overall a fine overpriced beer.
