A: The beer is very hazy (almost cloudy) pale yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of orange and tangerine citrus and biscuit malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of mangos and oranges along with notes of biscuit malts and hints of pine towards the finish. There is a light to moderate amount of carbonation.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit "juicy" on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This fits the profile of a New England-style IPA but has interesting underlying notes of biscuit malts.

Smells great. Sweet. Mango. Taste is more grapefruit than anything. Bitter but more citrus rine. Moth feel medium to full bodied. Over all another quality beer from Mikkeller.

16 oz can from blipp. Aroma is tropical fruit, orange creamsicle, yeasty, earthy. Pours completely opaque yellow orange with a collapsing white head leaving some lace. Taste is medium bitter with lots of fruity and yeasty flavors. Good.

Taste is sweet tropical fruits, lots of mango, papaya, ripe pineapple, tangerine, packed with bitter hops in the finish, really smooth.

Has the look. Decent smell. Good feel. But a bit too boozy and taste is not on par with other hazey IPAs

Can stamped 03212017

Juicy looking orange hue with a slim layer of sticky foam. Pungent, fruity hop aromas...tangerine, apricot, pineapple, pine resin, and some booze. Zesty, juicy dankness in the mouth. Stone fruit, pulpy citrus, kiwi, green herbs, scallion, and spruce with some alcohol. Light, cracker-like malts way in the back. Smooth, moderately carbonated feel, drying out into the finish. Nice hoppiness from the rather unique combination of Mandarina and Idaho 7, just a little too much booze present for 8.5%.

As the name suggests, pours a nice hazy orange that resembles orange juice. Standard east coast juice bomb appearance. The nose has lots of tropical fruits and citrus. Mango, pineapple, grapefruit. All are present. The mouth is a little more bitter than the nose was. It could be a little better balanced as I am picking up some alcohol. As I just checked the can, however, I now see that this is 8.5%, which is much higher than I was anticipating. Still, the booziness could have been toned down just a bit on the taste. The mouth is as I would expect. It's got good body and, like I said, finishes with some alcohol heat. Overall, this is pretty true to the style. It's solid on the whole, but I think the fruitiness could have been intensified and the bitterness lessened in the taste.
