Can from Tavour.
Hazy lemon yellow with a hint of oxidative browning and a thin bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Fruity juicy bready and grassy with a hint of alcohol. Not too bad.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip. Standard 'V-series' labeling.

L: Cloudy dark golden pour with thick fluffy white head. Great lacing.

S: Melon and citrus. Grapefruit and orange rind.

T/F: Sweet up front... grains and hops. Strong melon forward hops. Lighter grapefruit/citrus... some pineapple and mango. Thick and sticky on the tongue. More floral notes and honeydew at the finish.

O: Not bad, but far from my favorite brew in the Hubbard's Cave 'V-series'.

16 oz can- Pours hazy orange with a medium large bubbled white head that doesn't stick around for long. Aroma is fairly muted, but there is some tropical fruitiness there, along with the typical hazy aromas. The taste is dank, resinous, tropical citrusy notes, more dank than your usual hazy, along with a bit more bitterness, there is also a bit of booziness that i'd prefer to not be there. Overall very solid hazy.
