Big thanks to bstyle for this
32 oz crowler poured into a teku

A- A hazy golden straw color with a two finger white head.

S- Oragnes, citrus, tropical fruits, melons, hints of wet grass.

T- Not as OJ like as the nose, citrus, melons, some oranges, hints of tropical fruits, touch of wet grass, hints of pine in the finish.

M- Smooth, creamy, medium body.

O- A good hazy IPA, very drinkable, the hint of wet grass is a little off putting but still great.

Edit: As it warms the wet grass fades away.

Hazy pale yellow in color with a nice lingering head. Looks thick.
Smell is fruity hops. It won't knock you over but it's significant.
Taste, holy crap! This is really really good
Very reminiscent of Trillium and Treehouse IPAs.
I couldn't be more thrilled that I can finally get something like this in the Midwest.

Month-old can poured into a Teku.

Beautiful orange-gold body, pretty haze and fully opaque but not chunky or turbid. Fantastic bright-white head of latte bubbles that provide a wonderful mess of film and lacing down the glass.

Massive candied citrus and damp (but only slightly dank) grass dominate the nose. White grape, some tropical and stone fruits, and a little resin. Nice profile but really overwhelmed by the grassiness. And not nearly as big or juicy as I expected for an 8% hazy IPA called “OJ Run.” Still very solid, just not outstanding.

Similar experience on the tongue, but overripe stone fruit outweighs the citrus. Still, incredibly green and grassy, with a pronounced mineral bite. A medley of ripe fruits — mango, grape, guava, pineapple, orange — in the mix, plus some biscuity malt.

Luscious, soft, and velvety feel. Well carbonated. Zero heat.

Can from Sprayberry Bottle shop

Interesting as it looks like a more traditional haze bomb, but drinks more citrus-bitter without the smoothing oat mouthfeel. The nose is totally oft-putting: garlicky weed is not appreciated. Odd this has such high ratings.

Straw yellow and very hazy in complexion. There's a fingernail off eggshell white around the rim. Heavy lacing. I'm really struggling to get any aroma, but there's some faint citrus. I'm tasting plenty of citrus hops and some light malt. The mouth is sticky and chewy.

Crowler. White head. Lace. Hazy burnt sunset gold color.

Fairly tropical and juicy but for Joe big of a beer it is, it seems to lack some flavor. Almost watered down if that makes sense. Grapefruit and orange. Mango and papaya. Floral hops.


Really solid offering.

Draft pour from the source. Well named DIPA. Hazy and turbid yellow body. Very citrusy orange forward hops in aroma and taste. Low bitterness from the hops with huge hops flavors. OJ run is my first taste of Narrow Gauge and I am very impressed. This beer reminds me exactly of Julius from Treehouse almost to a tee. Pretty excited to see the New England hops being made in the midwest. Especially when they are of this high of quality.

On tap at Cugino’s. Pours a hazy golden color with a good head and some lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, bit of pine and malt sweetness. Taste of orange, bit of citrus and nice touch of malt. Nice bitterness with a bit of orange in the finish. Medium body, very flavorful and nicely crafted. Enjoyable beer.
