Light amber in color. Fairly intense but not distinct juicy aroma. Taste is really sweet. There's lots of tropical fruit but also an almost candy sweetness. To me, the sweetness nearly overwhelms the hops. It's an interesting yet unusual DIPA.

Pours a bright sunny and clear sunshine yellow.

Citrus forward with notes of toasted malt.

Bready and toast like malt sweetness with a wave of citrus overlapping.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, crisp, clean.

Overall, a little one dimensional and lackluster, but overall a drinkable brew.

Thanks to Thomas & Jenny for sharing!
Bright orange with a wispy surface skim and spotty lace.
Herbal aroma, lightly spicy, vague melon.
Taste is resiny and bitter, pretty malty. Candied orange peel or something. Medium bodied, malty and resiny. Sort of heavy handed on the malt and alcohol, didn't really enjoy it.

16 ounce can into a tulip snifter. Canned 2/3/17, had 2/12/17.

Pours a darker, hazy orange, with a one finger foamy head and a good amount of foamy lacing. Smells of pine, resin, pineapple, light peach, a floral aroma. A touch dank when warm. The taste opens up a little more than the nose. Mango, peach, pineapple, light pine and resin, malt. A bit floral, a touch dank. A mild bitterness up front, a sweet note on the finish. Smooth, a lighter body and feel for a DIPA, well carbonated.

Good, expressive flavors and aroma, although the aroma loses steam over time. Lighter feel for a DIPA. But, it's definitely enjoyable to drink, so it's worth a purchase.

Tasted in a Hop Butcher arome glass from a one pint can on December 22, 2017. Canned 12/20/17. Look is light lemon gold with a thick bubbly head and lingering lacing. Smell and taste is melon, berry and stone fruit.

A very out there kind of brew, which fits in with the name. I am unfamiliar with the hop blend, but it is one that brings out a range of summer fruits which mingle with the honey sweet malty feel on the back end. Some mango, tangerine and grilled peach comes through along with a sort of dank aftertaste. A beer to be enjoyed as fresh as possible.
