Dark orange with hurs of gold, cloudy with lot of floaties, mild lacing. Citrusy notes of orange and lemon on the smell, taste is similar citrus profile with a little seltzer like zing on the back end. Medium body, slightly mouth watering, good alcohol presence. Pretty good.

My first from this brewery. Really like the way they do dates/labeling, readable.

Poured into a Tree House glass a very nice cloudy yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, peach), pretty nice diesel like. The taste is pretty nice hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, peach), pretty nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very nice brew. Orange Julius! Addictive! MilkShake! Nice to see it around here. Hope others show up.

16z can, snifter glass. Cloudy unfiltered golden orange body, one and half finger frothy white head, good retention, tons of lacing. Smell is big orange, certainly makes me think Mandarina is the main hop component here. Citrus, light lemon, a bit of floral resin, medium caramel, a bit of sugar. Light grainy sweetness is more prevalent on the finish, it gives off more of a wet grain flavour that lingers all the way through. Light sugar and caramel, resin, a far bit of orange. I think the orange is much more prevalent on the nose than it is on the palate. There is more of an astringent, wet earth and floral note to it, less of the juicy hop bite. Nevertheless, body is medium and the carbonation is about right.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on January 21, 2019. Canned 01.15.19. Brewed with Citra, Mandarina, and Simcoe hops. There are better versions.
