look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Super turbid, completely opaque, very dark orange brew. Murky. Head production is lacking, although retention and lacing are quite nice, given the ~1/2 finger of head produced from a 16 ounce can.

On the nose, orange immediately comes to mind, followed by pine, resin, grapefruit, mango, and papaya, all layered on top of a smooth honeyed cracker malt base. Bright green herbs round out the hop profile, which emphasizes citrus tones over tropical.

A bit of mango and papaya up front, moving to lemon and orange, with grapefruit on the back third. Incredibly juicy hop tones - my mind is blown that they could get this much juice without any added fruit. Not a ton of biscuity malt outside of the body and booze. Very mild dankness.

On the high side of medium bodied. Decent heft and weight; it feels appropriate for the ABV, although it's very easy to drink. Extremely lively with moderate sting; semi-dry and effervescent.
