Total juice bomb. You get all the regular aspects of what you'd expect from an Aslin DIPA with a lower abv. Probably my favorite single IPA from them.

Possibly my favorite IPA in general; incredibly easy to drink and all too flavorful at this ABV.

L: Pale orange; yellowish; hazy and opaque. Beautiful head with lovely retention.

S: Super dense tropical flavors. Really aggressive berry notes and light biscuity flavors come through.

T: Just like the nose, really pleasant fruity flavors. Malty with fruit hop flavors coming through.

F: Thick and lingering. Perfect balance of carbonation and a dense unfiltered texture.

O: Out of bounds. Out of control. Out of this world.

From an hours-old crowler, pours a dark, turbid orange. Big, dense 2-finger head leaves dense lacing. Looks amazing. Smells intensely of oranges with some mango, tangerine and a spicy, almost minty undercurrent. Taste follows with a faint breadiness toward the finish, ending with more of a piney spice and mild bitterness.

Feel is a smooth medium with perfect carbonation. Get it while you can!

At the brewery yesterday. Galaxy & Amarillo hops.

(L) The color is super hazy orange, verging on opaque.
(A) Smell was orange juice and citrus. A little pineapple.
(T) JUICY! The taste is like the smell, tropical and citrus but not overly sweet. Maybe a little piney. Super balanced.
(F) Full bodied.

Killer juicy IPA. IMO as good as A Small Town in Ontario. So happy I showed up for the new pours.

L - 1.5 finger bright white head atop a shining, opaque orange body.

S - tangerine, grapefruit, pine.

T - lots of grapefruit along with some sweeter tangerine and perhaps mango. Mildly herbal middle. Very low bitterness. Medium-low sweetness. No booziness.

F - medium body and carb.

O - a perfect ipa to drink outside. Such an easy drinker, and a good one to share with non-ipa fans.

8 oz pour at brewery on October 21, 2016. Notes emailed to myself.

L: light bronze color, mostly hazy, 2f head with nice lacing and ring

S: tropical fruits like mango guava berry and lots of earthiness, maybe some overripe orange

T: follows nose, dank but not bitter

F: medium body, light to medium carbonation, good construction and balance

O: another great ipa by aslin.

32 oz crowler filled today at Aslin

This is what they do best and what I like most about them. Juicy, bangin' IPA that you can take to the dome. Smells great, tastes even better and mouthfeel you want to take a goddamn nap on.

Ugly but with a nice head.
Aromas of orange juice, citrus
Try to detach your eyes from your stomach. Not much different than a typical IPA.
I like the smoother MF. Dry finish. Medium body.

Murky but not hazy dark orange color. The nose is a musky hops with some orange behind it. The taste has a candied orange taste to it with a mildly bitter hop. Kind of a weird mix, while good it's better on paper thane excurion. Feel is full and smooth with no harsh bite. Overall a good beer but missing the big flavor punch I've come to expect from Asline.

Fresh crowler.

Orange juice. Looks like orange juice. Bright neon orange. Haze for days.
Smells like orange juice and a dank bowl of weed.
Taste is juicy, fleshy orange juice and finishes with pineapple. Sweet. No bitterness, no alcohol. Rind and pith.
Spongy, fleshy soft feel.
Fantastic. Probably the best ipa I have had from Aslin yet.

Dick sparks!
