Pours a slightly cloudy medium straw color, minimal head. Hoppy aromas of mango, peach, pineapple. Great tropical fruit flavor, slight darkness, pretty sweet. Light carbonation. Overall a really great DIPA, one of my favorites from Magnify so far.

No freshness date - come on Magnify!
Murky yellow-orange tequila sunrise hue with thick 1-2 finger frothy off-white Head with decent retention and spotty lacing.
Aroma is not huge but respectable with pineapple, mango, honeysuckle, and resin. It seems a bit muddled with hops competing rather than complementing.
Flavor is good but also a bit brute force and not with a lot of distinct hop notes, mostly general tropical fruits With a lot of resin in the finish. High bitterness that increases through the aftertaste. Sniffs cloying category but not quite there due to the heavy oil and protein content.
Feel is great for 9% ABV, pretty dangerous really, with soft but established carbonation
Overall a beer that is good but has even more potential to clarify hop qualities and dial down the oily feel a bit.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a snifter glass. Had a dark orange-ish color and a very thick and cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Fantastic lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of hops, citrus, malt, pine, and tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of a mild amount of malt (mostly in the finish), a bit of pine resin, a moderate amount of tropical fruit (passion fruit), lots of hops, citrus (orange), and pineapple. An incredibly lively and powerful flavor. It's very well-balanced between the hops and fruit elements. Tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a vibrant finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is an excellent DIPA. Quite well made and definitely easy to drink. Well worth a try.

Poured a cloudy, yellow body with minimal head. Aroma is more sweet than sour/tart with smells of tangerine, pineapple and hints of apricot, peach and white grapefruit. Smooth, fuller-bodied with a mild hoppy bitterness that is balanced by a sweetness that is like peach, mango or apricot and finish is clean.

Tons of hoppy character throughout the range of flavors. Magnify did well to balance the pine, resin, and bitter with fruit and floral notes. Mouthfeel is full and no heat on the palate from the higher abv.

From a growler, pours a very hazy orange. Small dense head leaves a bit of lacing. Smell is big notes of passionfruit, guava, citrus and dank. Taste follows. Mild bitterness. Feel is lightish medium. Drinks like a 6% beer. Pretty fantastic.

Crowler day after full:
Pours a sorta amber orange-juice, though the head is nicely between foamy and creamy and lasts with a little lacing.

A nice grapefruit, guava, and fermented pineapple nose, with just a little spruce note.

A very little heat in a somewhat juicy opening similar to the nose. The malt backs this up and what I assume is oat (or wheat) is noticed. A little grain a bitter wood hold the back of this beer with a little lingering citrus rind.

Solid NE IPA, with both juiciness and a light countering bitterness. Overall fairly balanced sweet/bitter with an above moderate juicy hop profile.
