Picked it up at the release. Canned the day prior on 03/09/18.

The pour is a very hazy, murky orange. Looks a lot like a pulpy orange juice without the pulp. Almost no head forms on the pour. Good bit of bubbles in the beer though. Little bit of lacing comes down the sides as you drink.

Could smell as it was being poured. Extremely fruity. Grapefruit, mango, kiwi, so many tropical fruit aromas. Hops are abundantly floral in scent. More melons and canteloupe. Just incredibly fruity.

Much like the nose, loaded with ripe fruit flavors. Mango, melon, kiwi, so juicy. A balanced hoppy bitterness slams against a bready malt backbone. No hint of the alcohol level at all really. Flavor mirrors the nose fairly well. Gets pretty "danky" as the beer warms.

Mid to full bodied IPA with a tickling carbonation. Again no hint of alcohol. Does feel like you're drinking a carton of orange juice but with carbonation.

The drinkability factor on this is very high. Doesn't feel at all like 8.5%, drinks fairly easiliy, and fits the NE IPA style. It's not the best example of it, but I feel Stickman fit what they were trying to do. It's a juicy double IPA but they did a good job in balancing the bitterness, hence the "Sensible Portions"? I hope this gets made again.
