L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a dirty orange color and a very cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of hops, a floral quality, tropical fruit, malt, and citrus fruit.

T: Tasted of a good shot of citrus fruit (orange, in particular), lots of the floral quality (a nice touch), an average amount of hops (not too much), light malt (mostly in the finish), and a decent bit of tropical fruit (pineapple). A juicy, fruity, and sweet flavor. It's not as fruity as most NE IPAs, but it manages to succeed. Pretty tasty.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth, creamy finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A light, highly enjoyable beer. Worth a try.

better than a lot of these hazy ones, and its cool that it made it out to colorado on draft, but i am certain that it didnt travel real well, even if it is fresh, there is a lot of bitterness to the hops, and the juiciness seems a little faded to me, not quite oxidized or anything, but not as fresh as it likely used to be. green and vegetal to me in the taste, much more attractive in the aroma, pineapple and peach juice, orange, and a botanical element. i wish it wasnt so starchy and heavy on the grain side, its soupy and thick and even a little sweet there, it really heavies up as it warms too, and its just not as well refined and cleaned up as i would like it to be. the hops in the nose are great, thats the best part of this, the rest of it is just like a thousand others, this style is starting to run its course and lose its luster a little for me, but i hope to be able to try this a little closer to the source at some point. i also hope they keep sending beer out this way, its fun to have some of this stuff in the market!
