As usual, a white washed opaque yellow with a frothy pillow above that platers the glass.

Citrus forward fruity aromas with vanilla and rubber back drops.

Mango binds with orange juice, a dash of pine, and some burnt rubber.

Smooth feel, balanced, with a decent dash of bitterness on the end.

Another goody from GN, but the parts are better than the whole in their respective rights. Cheers.

Had from can dated July 6th 2018

Foggy as fart, like pouring a carton of expired Tropicana OJ in a pint glass. Smell is fresh cut pineapple, citrus, papaya (?). Taste is chewy, mild cheese rind funk, deliciousness; finish is super smooth, nothing left on the pallet; this beer is very effervescent, seems to be heavily carbonated - whatever, it works.

Crowler from 6/8/18 into shaker pint.

L: Pours murky orange bronze with 1 finger of medium density head with good retention and left windshield lacing.

S: Nice very tropical nose, heavy on mango and cantaloupe, guava undertones.

T: Follows the nose to a degree but has much bigger citrus aspect that wasn't perceived on the aroma. Quite juice-like, finishes with limited bitterness and mild astringency, clears palate quickly.

F: Medium bodied with lower carbonation, fluffy on the tongue with creamy feel on the swallow.

O: Very nice NE-style IPA, hides the ABV well and is quite tropical. Wish the taste matched the nose to a greater degree. But I'll happily have again.
