Poured an orange body with minimal head and lace. Mildly bitter, veggie-like citric aroma with some tropical fruit notes. Smooth beer, full body, with balance between lovely citric bitterness and tropical fruit-like sweetness.

L: Poured from a growler to a snifter glass. Had a deep, dark orange color and a thick, hazy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A sweet and enticing aroma of hops, citrus fruit, tropical fruit, pine, and malt.

T: Tasted of a mild amount of malt (mostly in the finish), a hint of pine (just enough), a good shot of hops (not overdone), lots of citrus fruit (oranges), and lots of tropical fruit (mango, pineapple). A extremely sweet and fruity flavor that gets better as you go along. It's light and vibrant - everything you expect an NE IPA to be. Delicious.

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

O: A wholly enjoyable NE IPA. Drinkable.

Murky orange thing with not too much head. Nose is mostly candied citrus of some sort with a trailing edge of garlic. Taste reverses for just a moment with a garlicky open that morphs into a mix of grapefruit, pineapple and sweetness. Finishes a bit bitter and dry.

Hazy bright orange color. Looks great.

Nose is a bit muted but taste has a ton of tropical fruits pine and citrus in the taste. A really good DIPA although the nose was a bit lighter than I expected.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: orange with a tint of brown. Totally hazy. This reminds me of OJ with a couple of tablespoons of coffee mixed in, or OJ that is far past fresh. The head is 1-finger that fades quickly to a collar.

Aroma: super-fresh hops manifesting as pineapple and fresh pine / pine resin backed by light sweet malt.

Flavor: super-fresh hops combined with a coffee or mocha off-taste. The hops don’t have any standout distinctive flavors. Light alcohol taste in the finish.

Mouthfeel: heav(ier)-medium. Creamy. Mildly spicy in the finish.

Overall: good but not great. These hops are not super flavorful, and combined with the coffee taste, this is shy of next level caliber. The flavor doesn’t keep pace with the aroma. Given the hype surrounding Aslin’s IPAs, this one falls short. It is good, yet a disappointment by comparison to the hype.

Pours a little on the murky side of hazy with a medium head that had good lace. Nose isn't as big as I expected, but still has nice mixed tropical fruits and citrus. Taste is fairly juicy with the same mixed tropical fruit and citrus, but also some garlic and onion in there. Overall a solid beer, but for the price, it needs to be better than this.

Deep, murky, orange beer with a sticky off white head. Smells like pine, grapefruit, mango. Taste is a little sweet with pineapple, and mango with a super aggressive and lingering bitterness.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Murky orange bodied, opaque and a bit still. Large fluffy and topped three finger white head, with cheeks and clumps of light lacing to match along the glass. Good thick bubbly collar and puck while drinking.

Real nice soft hop aroma. Touches herbal and tropical fruit, with a touch of dank earth. Juicy earth pineapple almost mango, with a light sweetness and good herbal mint flavor. Neutral malt presence and a real good hop character.

Creamy bodied and full of excellent flavor. Rich light candy, with a bitter green mint mix of pineapple and light tropical hop blast. Excellent minty finish and touches of almost dank earthy tones make for a full richer tasting expereinces as well. Excellent mouthfeel, giving to chewy textures but also real easy and light bodied somehow for easy drinking.

Very well done IPA.

Poured from can into tulip glass

Pours a pleasing opaque, dark orange color. Slight head that dissipated quickly.
Smell is of citrus - orange - and berries.
Taste is very nice. The citrus is certainly present, along with some slight bitter orange rind and hops.
Fairly heavy bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, I'm enjoying this beer. It's got a decent balance for me between the fruit and bitter, hoppy notes. Is a result, it's refreshing and not just like drinking juice.
