4.09/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

From a crowler , let warm to about 45F.

Moderately hazy tangerine-juice-orange, with two fingers of white head, that leaves 1.5" of spotty lacing.

Smells of tangerine, pineapple, and mango. As the head dissipates, I get a little booziness .

Taste is candied orange rind, apricot, dried pineapple, and some rounded (not sharp) pine+floral flavor and bitterness, . That last bit is likely a manifestation of the high abv , but with no heat or astringency. Just a light, barely-perceptible presence in the background. Light bitterness near finish , and lingering just a bit after.

Feel is lightly oily , with medium body, as in unfiltered stone fruit juice. Light , sharp carbonation tingle towards the end, and lingering. Slight warming all over (in me) from the abv.

Overall , though not a "Wow" , it is good and enjoyable. My first time having anything from Aslin, and this encourages me to try more, if/when they show up.

4.04/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

L: Poured from a crowler to a snifter glass. Had a brownish / yellow color and a very cloudy consistency. There was a 3/4", foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Above average lacing.

S: A pretty good aroma of hops, pine, citrus fruit, malt, and tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of a bit of malt (mostly in the finish; not a particularly big factor), a tinge of pine (just enough to spice things up), a good shot of hops (not too, much, though), some tropical fruit notes (mango, in particular), and a good amount of citrus fruit (orange, in particular). A focused, well-balanced flavor. Not as powerful some of Aslin's other IPA flavors, but still tasty.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a sharp finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made, enjoyable beer. Worth a try.

3.65/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy brownish yellow with great white head and lacing. The aroma has a slight sweetness but is under whelming for a triple dry hopped beer. A nice tasting but otherwise ordinary ipa. Herbal hoppiness. Dry finish. Smooth.

4.18/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

5 oz pour on tap. Pours a cloudy yellow/orange. Aroma and flavor feature citrus and tropical fruit with some peach. Hides the 8.5% abv well and has a nice creamy mouthfeel. Overall it's a solid (D)NEIPA although not the most complex.
