4.25/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Super hazy juice bomb. Thick foamy white head leaves great lacing.

S: Tropical/citrus hops. NEIPA all the way.

T/F: Big and fruity... tropical pineapple and mango... grapefruit and tangerine... basically a big citrus juice blend. Sticky on the tongue.. modest bitterness. ABV present but hidden.

O: Another big juice bomb from Hubbard's Cave. Their entire 'V' series is fantastic if a bit hard to differentiate between.

Dirty yellow/orange/brown tones, mild head and lacing. Smell is ripe melon, slight tangy citrus. Taste is juice, very citrusy but not tangy or overbearing. Mild, smooth, mouthfilling. Really tasty.

Canned 8/8/18; drank 8/10/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange/yellow appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice off-white head; frothy lace.

Banana, tangerine peel & mild dry wheat notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Banana & tangerine peel flavors up front; mild dry wheat & faint booze heat notes on the finish.

Almost a Belgian yeast vibe here, but overall pleasant.
