I purchased a can of this at Great Wolf Lodge--an indoor water park marketed to kids. Beggars couldn't be choosers. I need to remember that in situations like this, slim options means that the selection must appease the masses. And Oh-J does just that. Inoffensive, unremarkable, could be more impressive, and could be a lot worse. Frankly, I'm impressed by the selection of any craft beer here, and I wonder how much better it might be if I had the chance to pour it into a glass. Nonetheless, my experience from a can is best described as...

L: Thick orange... Like orange juice.
S: Faint at best. Perhaps some orange, but really not much to speak of.
T: Tastes about as good as it smells, which might be "hardly at all." Some orange, but generic craft IPA at most. So light that it's easily crushable.
F: I don't like when my beer is supremely bubbly. I prefer the smoother experience that this beer provides. I could drink this like juice if the flavor was more enticing.
O: Smooth and easy. Too easy in flavor for my tastes. Good enough for an average score, poor enough to forget.

Enjoyable, but I wasn't blown away. Had on 4 separate occasions, cans less than 30 days old, fresh palate. Solid offering, but lacking any real standout features that I truly enjoyed.

From a 16oz can, a left-over picked up after the Manchester Brew Fest last 31OCT21....

Poured most of the contents into a Stark sniftah.... It's a hazy, bright, rich orange/golden color. Has light, scattered carbo meandering topside. The head is off-white, creamy and fine, mostly gathering at the rim. Lacing is top-shelf, with lots of foam on the glass. Aroma has loads of citrus, with grapefruit, pineapple and orange abounding. The body is nicely medium, if not more, with a smooth feel going down.

Flavor is light on malt, with only a bit of lightly bready, toasty notes present. As the name and style imply, this one is fruit-heavy. Has loads of citrus, with more grapefruit and pineapple, plus some tangerine and apricot, along with resiny, piney action in the slightly dry finish. This is solid! Oh-yeah! Prosit!

Poured an orange body with decent head and lace patches down the glass. Mildly citric and floral hop aroma with touches of grapefruit and tropical fruit (barely). Smooth yet sticky, a tad boozy, has this orange juice pulpiness to it, then a smattering of grapefruit before a syrupy malt-like finish. Beer is a slow sipper but enjoyable and worth trying.

Pours a milky light orange with a small fluffy head and a lot of lacing.

Smells of grassy hops and citrus.

Tastes of lightly tart and styptic orange and grapefruit with a slightly bitter finish.

Medium light body with light carbonation. Clean dry mouthfeel.

This is a mildly juicy and bitter NEIPA. Very enjoyable & drinkable.

A request resulted in a delivery, in a clear pint glass, after being drawn off a tap. The color is murky and dull yellow. A fruit fly seems compulsively drawn to this brew. There's not much head, but that's the standard here in Philadelphia. There's citrus and piney hoppiness for the nose and plenty of it. This is rich, citrusy, piney and smooth. It's obviously not reconstituted. This is one remarkable NEIPA. It brings both a piney resinous aspect, plus a bit of citrus. All that is delivered in a fully smooth and mildly sweet malt medium. The taste of alcohol is much less than the actual ABV and a little hint of alcohol completes the overall taste of any good beer. There's some glass lacing, but here's one that tastes much better than it looks. A must have for those that like this style.

Nice DIPA! Juicy and delicious. Any bitterness is tart, but subtle and not an issue. Very enjoyable NE style.

Brought back by Ingi from her trip to Portland. Thanks! Canned 08/10/2021. Fresh!
Poured with a great head that kept it almost to the end. Traditional juicy DIPA nose. Nice taste but mouthfeel had a bit of a hop bite that was a bit more than I desire. Very good beer.

Look...for me this is an ideal look for beers i enjoy
Smell...Orange pineapple , dank, tangerine and most definitely a hop presence. a very inviting smell.
Taste...a very bitter grapefruit start melting into a dank bitter. I expected it to be a little sweeter in some parts. It is good just thought i would enjoy have a sweeter middle and less bitter. The finish is dry and bitter for sure.
Feel...Excellent body and carbonation with some nice lacing.
Overall...This is very good but not world class to me. Well made just not as good as some of the locals i have at my disposal. When you pay almost 20 or more i want the goods. Nice but not world class

From a pint can with no date marking but I grabbed it off the shelf as the distributor was stocking it so it must be reasonably fresh.

Poured into my tulip glass this beer is an opaque amber shade with a tall bubbly ecru head which leaves some fluffy lace as it falls.

Scent is oranges, tangerine, mango.

Taste is tropical fruit, orange, tangerine. Vanilla orange ("Orange Whip? Orange Whip?") Pear. A hint of banana. Pine. Mild to moderate sweetness balanced by a solid bitterness. There's even a hint of onion here.

Mouth is somewhere between creamy and juicy with a soft carbonation.

Great DIPA with a creamy orange vanilla focus and a nice array of secondary hop flavors.
