L- The beer pours and opaque well....orange. The head is 2 fingers of slightly off white foam. As the head recedes the lace clings to the sides in great quantity.
S- The nose is a mix of orange and tangerine which becomes evident the moment the can is popped.
T- On the palate the beer is less sweet than the nose implies. Overall I'd say the beer leans just slightly to the bitter pithy side. Orange and tangerine flavors here are outshone by the pith, but makes the beer quite drinkable.
F- Mouthfeel overall is a solid medium. Carbonation after the initial pour is light.
O- A nicely drinkable single IPA at a somewhat sessionable 5.7%. Packs more than enough flavor to satisfy. Recommended.

From can picked up at Aslin the day before.

Beautiful orange yellow opaque color with good bit of foam head upon aggressive pour. Juicy and tropical aroma burst from the glass. Solid juicy flavors as well with a medium mouthfeel (which is good for a pale ale). This packs a very good amount of flavor into such a light (5.7% abv) pale ale.

Posted a cloudy yellow-orange body with minimal head and no lace down the glass. Aroma has minimal sweetness with an earthy hoppiness to it. The beer has a sharp acidity to it in a light, juicy body, mix of citric and even lemon/orange sharpness, with a pineapple juice (almost tropical fruit) sweetness and sharp/sweet finish.

16 oz can fresh
Graded color from straw to dark orange with white fizzy head an great lacing on the glass. Smells of bitter hops and sweet tropical fruit. Taste is less better and much more sweet. Body is medium.

Appearance: Pours a murky honey color with a thick head that sticks nicely and leaves clumpy lacing

Smell: Tangerine, melon and pith

Taste: Melon forward, with tangerine building; pithy, through the middle, and a relatively dry, dank finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body but overly carbonated

Overall: Not the most distinctively juicy NEIPA I have tasted from Aslin; OK, but by comparison it suffers

Thanks, Slack, for the opportunity

Bitter orange beer with moderate to light sweetness. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Very sticky head. Tastes fruity but there is a bitter orange baby aspirin finish. Tasty beer.
