Can from the brewery in Queens. Pours a hazy golden orange with a finger o rocky white head that lingers, minimal lacing, smell is sticky tropical fruit salad with overripe papaya, mango, orange, cantaloupe, marshmallow, peppery dank grapefruit zest, hints of orange blossom, yellow cake, and honey, taste is papaya, melon, mango pit, orange zest, and coconut flesh, finishes with nice grapefruit pith that lingers, hints of pineapple cake, puns cake, and spicy dank white grape must, feel is medium to full bodied, lively carbonation, decent carbonic bite. Tropical fruit salad juice with a citrusy kick.

This was an exceptional IPA. I had it on tap at Extreme Beer Fest 2018 and wish I could get more!

The beer definitely had a nice look and smell of a modern IPA. The flavor featured peach and mango vibes coming with a creamy body. The hops were present and added a nice dry finish on the palate with some orange notes. Very smooth and enjoyable with no alcohol burn.

Easily an A ranked IPA competing with some of the best out there!

Pile of crowns... wish they had it more often. Really special brew from a fantastic brewery. These guys are on the cusp of becoming one of the most sought out beers of the east coast. Phenomenal fluid.
