Large, three-finger head. It recedes in a lumpy fashion. Cloudy, but not milkshake cloudy. Orange-amber color.

Some earthiness with oil, a little weedy. Faint plastic.

Oily mouthfeel from the high alcohol presence. Smooth with average carbonation. The malt is rich but doesn't hold up to the alcohol finish. There's more than enough hop for balance plus some. The alcohol really is the story this beer with a very warming swallow and long aftertaste. In a word: boozy.

Using a new ipa glass for the first time . Need to learn the proper pouring mechanics

Turbid orange liquid, darker orange on top, lighter orange in the stem, floaties, three finger frothy off white on the first pour, one finger in the second pour , great retention, settles to a pencil thick solid creamy layer ,very good lacings, is it the glass or the beer?

Aroma is orange citrus, tangerine, orange candy , mango

Taste is orange pith, citrus , mango, Hint of dank on the finish

Smooth beer, 9.7% abv well hidden ,Gentle dank hop bite finish

Very good beer

Got taken out to lunch today for my Birthday (though a week early). Hit The Grill Next Door in Haverhill with my ladies.... Had a couple of rounds of this, at $8.00 for a 10oz pour.

Small snifter was filled with a hazy, muted, dull golden-colored brew. Had a bright white, creamy head. It started at 1/4" and ebbed to a fine covering layer, with solid lacing. Aroma had lovely citrus, with semi-sweet notes combining with rindy, bitter action. Body was medium to medium-plus, with only light prickle hitting the tongue.

Flavor also had a combo of bitter and sweet: pineapple, apricot, and tangerine mixed with rindy orange peel and piney, resiny citrus Quite the tasty double (triple?) IPA.... Prosit!
