L: Poured from a tallboy can to a snifter glass. Had a dirty orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Above average lacing.

S: A decent, but not spectacular, aroma of hops, a grassy quality, citrus fruit, malt, and tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of a small amount of malt (mostly in the finish), a bit of tropical fruit (mangos), a decent amount of dank hops (not particularly bitter), a lot of the grassy quality, and some citrus fruit (oranges). Kind of a mixed bag here. Like a lot of other beers, the grassiness is quite intrusive and a little obnoxious, not letting the fruit shine. A little uneven.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An uneven beer with some good qualities. Worth a look.

Can stamped 22 JAN 2019

Cloudy orange with a creamy off-white head that sticks to the glass a bit. Fragrant orange, grapefruit, dried pineapple, light peppercorn, light piney spice. Super juicy, tropical fruit hop flavor: pulpy citrus and pineapple. Medium bodied, slick feel, fluffy carb, drying out decently. A little too juicy sweet for my personal tastes, especially all 16 oz to myself, but still pretty tasty.

A: Pours a hazy murky medium golden honey in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate burnt orange + golden yellow + bright yellow + copper colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense creamy sudsy foamy off-white head that reduces to a medium to large sized patch of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Slightly heavier than moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy tropical/pineapple (overripe), citrus/orange, citrus/orange peel, and tropical/mango hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + oat + wheat + honey malts with a light amount of honey sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + oat + wheat + honey malts with a light amount of honey sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy tropical/pineapple (overripe), citrus/orange, citrus/orange peel, spicy and tropical/mango hops with a light amount of bitterness which lingers for a short while leaving a light to moderate tropical/pineapple hop flavor lingering in the finish.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp upfront with a light amount of soft/fluffiness mid-body and a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a lightly fluffy mouthfeel. A very enjoyable combination of hop flavors and aromas (citrus/tropical/spicy). I would definitely enjoy having this one at some point again.
