This beer actually looks like mango juice as it is turbid and orange in the glass. Barely any lingering head to speak of. Smell is complex with mango predominating and supported by a tropical juice undertone. The taste is bone dry with a piney bitter finish. Way too bitter for my tastes. It looses all the nuances of the nose on account of the bitter taste. Feel is pretty pleasant but unremarkable. Overall the beer is good but it does not live up to its nose or look.

Murky orange beer with thin head. Meaty fruity notes, tangerine, stone fruit, some citrus notes and leafy hop notes. Interesting beer for sure.

Many thanks to Knapp85 for this can.

A - Pours an opaque medium orange tan color with thin, yet dense white lacing.

S - Mango, citrus, tangerine. Aroma is "chewy and thick".

T - Mango, citrus, and some tangerine with a lingering mild citric bitterness and tropical sweetness.

M - Chewy, heavy medium body, coats the mouth with chewy tropical fruit.

O - Rock solid, but any more, these hazy IPA's are all starting to taste the same.

Poured a cloudy orange body with minimal head and lace ring. Mango comes through with a tangerine grapefruit sweetness and no hoppy bitterness in the aroma. The beer's taste/mouthfeel has a hint of bitterness but is mostly sweet from tangerine/mango and this sweetness is balanced with a mild acidic hop bite and the finish is clean and sweet and this beer is real enjoyable.
