Got in a trade with GreenBayBA. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Pours opaquely hazy deep golden/orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with amazing retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big mandarin orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, red apple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew, watermelon, berries, citrus peel/zest, wood, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt notes; with big strength. Taste of huge mandarin orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, red apple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew, watermelon, berries, citrus peel/zest, wood, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of mandarin orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, red apple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew, watermelon, berries, citrus peel/rind, wood, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Amazing complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance; and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready, fairly sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6.4%. Overall this is an amazing NEIPA. All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; extremely smooth and easy to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish; awesomely soft feel. Amazing El Dorado profile. Super juicy, vibrant, and lightly dank/earthy hops; with a perfectly balanced wheat/oat/malt backbone. Light residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and top tier quality style example.

This beer pours a hazy orange with a large head. The aroma is a bit mild, with mango, kiwi, passion fruit, and tangerine. The flavor is gentle at first, with some creamy mango, followed by sharper kiwi and passion fruit. The mouthfeel is quite soft with a sweet finish. Overall a pleasant beer, maybe a touch to sweet.

Poured 16oz can into snifter. Color is a turbid and dirty orange with a 2 finger head that fades slowly and leaves webbed lacing on my glass. The scent is lovely citrus, pear, pineapples and mangoes. The El Darodo hop gives an incredible tropical juicy to it. Absolutely fantastic topical fruits in the taste is more of the same citrus and pear, peaches, pineapples and mangoes. A bit of slight grapefruit and pine bitter, malt in the finish. Excellent carbonation with oily hop residue and dry finish. Another winner from the Brewing Projekt!

Hazy golden-yellow body, one finger white head, good retention and lots of lacing. Smell is juicy tropical fruit, touch of resin and floral, light caramel, slight sugariness. It's got a great aroma. Flavour is similar, minimal sugary sweetness, floral and tropical fruit hop aromatics burst forth, mild resinous bitterness that cuts through the sweetness a fair amount, leaving you with mostly the hop flavours. Tasty. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, good carbonation. This line of IPAs from this brewery is really quite excellent. Citra is preferred , I think, but not by much.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on November 9, 2018. Look is dark hazy gold with an off-white head and lingering lacing. Smell is tropical fruit. Taste is citrus and tropical fruit with a hint of pine.
