Very very juicy. As name would imply. Almost overwhelms. Bought 4 pack gas station convenience store south bath Maine. Drank over next several days in phippsburg and Boston

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.

A: Hazy pale orange skin coloring, with a dense and juicy, vibrant nature of effervesce. Dull weathered white head, has a cotton like structure, is one inch, and stands strongly. Faint lace reminder.

S: Smells like concentrated orange juice from the can. Pulpy, along with some grapefruit juice. Tropical pineapple, lightly tart, with a bit of feathery pine hopping. A bit of tangerine rounds out. Overall strength was good.

T: Flowery and tart oranges for flavor. Dry citrus is bitter, along with some pine resin. Dry orange grind and bittering grapefruit with a bit of pear yeastiness.

M: Really dry and bitter mouthful, flowery, detergent alkaline like, with a soft and creamy feel. Frothy.

O: Overall a brutal assault of dry flowery hopping, chalky citrus from the triple dry hopping. Its extreme dry and bitter hopping dominates and perhaps overshadows any flavor hops. The aroma was wet and just. Complexity was a bit narrow but this was meant evidently to be a dry hop bomb.

Lone Pine Brewing Co. "Oh-J"
16 fl. oz. can coded "02/04/21" and sampled on 04/28/21.
$5.49 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: It's poured a cloudy golden-orange beneath a fluffy head of slightly yellowed off-white foam. The aroma is softly resinous and citrusy with citrus pith and orange. It's bright and pleasant. The flavor follows with great intensity. There's a sweetish, wheaty malt to it, and some notes of pine. A stiff bitterness keeps in it check as does a little bit of alcohol and some acidic hop bite from dry hopping. It's a feisty little juice bomb! In the mouth it's medium bodied and gently crisp before warming to become smoother and a bit creamy. The head has held up pretty well but the lacing is a bit limited. Nicely done.

Date is hard to read, but guessing that it is 02/04/21. Let sit out for 15 minutes before opening.

Hazy orangey-gold, with 1+finger of off-white head, that leaves 1/4" ring, some surface sheeting, and shreds of lacing .

Smell is tangelo, blood orange, pineapple, and slight mango+papaya. There is a light malty aroma, that fades with the head. As that happens, the tangelo becomes more prominent, and seems more sour.

Taste is mostly bitter orange (aka Seville orange) - (Citrus x aurantium ) - not "bitter" in the generic sense though that is present - , with hints of dried pineapple, dried mango , and light crackery malt. Some of that barely-tart tangelo in the aroma, shows up, and sits on the tongue at finish. Moderately bitter, with a drying finish. Drier than the aroma would indicate. (I like that. :) )

Feel is medium and juicy, with moderate, soft, semi-creamy carbonation, that gives a slight bite at finish.

Overall, a wonderful NEIPA, that lives up to description. Only got a single, so will be going back for more. Highly recommended. :)

Poured from a pint can about 1.5 months from the date on the can.
This is a great representation of the new age of NEIPAs.
I had tasted this right after a milkshake IPA (much sweeter), so the bittering hops were accentuated.
Really tropical up front, with orange and pineapple, and nice bittering finish, a trace of astringency but I like a bite at the end. Very tasty and goes down nicely.

Really enjoyed this one.... Perfect example of a tropical or citrusy IPA .... Looks pretty, smells good, tastes really good ... Not what you would expect from a brewer in Maine, but who's complaining!?

Poured a nice, light orange hue with good carbonation. The aroma clearly had the zing of zesty orange, without being overwhelmingly fruity. Overall, the orange/tangerine flavors really compliment the bitterness of the hops, without being overly tart or fruity. This beer would be a great grab on a hot summer day, but for now, its transporting me out of the snowy New England cold. Great beer to break my dry January beer fast.

On tap at Antenna America, Kannai, Yokohama:

This is the first time I’ve had an IPA that explicitly/unashamedly defines itself by its fruit qualities where I felt everything comes together and works as a cohesive whole.

Just the right level of pithy bite in the flavor, complemented by a perfect, almost creamy mouthfeel.

Can from Vinyl Beer on the UES NYC. Pours an almost clear amber orange with two fingers of fluffy white head that sticks around, nice lacing, smell is zesty candied orange peel, sweet and sour tangerine, hints of caramel malts, peach and mango, taste is orange flesh, tangerine juice, hints of caramel and mango, mild grapefruit pith, feel is medium bodied and creamy. An orange juice milkshake! Yum!

I got a can of this beer off the single shelf from my local beer store just around the corner. It poured a cloudy orangish golden with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had fresh orange peel notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with fresh tangerine and orange presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a solid beer.

Canned 9/26, poured into an IPA nonic.

A: Medium-dark gold with a moderate haze; soapy white head fades but laces decently.

S: Pleasant citrus fruit; orange, tangerine, some pink grapefruit, and impressions of apricot.

T: Follows the nose with ample notes of soft citrus juice, orange juice, sweeter grapefruit and stone fruit, mild bitterness.

MF: Crushable body at 8%; smooth, sweet, mildly fluffy.

O: I was excited to try this one, and the two-month-old can held up just fine in my opinion. This is a quality NEIPA with enough citrus juiciness to be a brew I return to as long as Lone Pine continues to land in Idaho.

I was happy to see this beer being distributed to VT. I'm not sophisticated enough to comment on the nose, but what I can comment on is that this beer is delicious. I like the citrus-forward flavor, and the mouthfeel is ok. Not creamy, but definitely more "drinkable" than HT. The finish is nice and light. I can drink 2 or 3 cans over the course of a long night, but really, after 1 I'm pretty buzzed, so 2 is really my limit. The 8% ABV definitely creeps up on me.

I'm not getting the hype on this one. Certainly a decent DIPA. I do like a like me some milkshake IPA's. This seems to be one of them, although not called one. Good not great. May have to give another try.

a: slightly hazy pale orange color with a nice 1.5 finger solid white head

s: orange juice, sweet vanilla, caramel, mango, pineapple, passionfruit, candied apricot. quite sweet in the aroma, very much like a vanilla sweetness in here

t: sweet orange juice, vanilla, tangerines, sweet clementines, and sweet pineapple. sweet caramel, crackers, and strawberry milkshake

m: very fluffy medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation

o: sweet, almost milkshake like NEDIPA. a touch too sweet and almost desert-like for my blood

The name fits this one. Straight up clementine on the nose and palate. Orange Jolly Ranchers on the finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Easy drinking and just plain good.

Remember Sunny D? Yeah that drink. This is that in beer form with a massive kick. 8.1abv gonna blast your socks straight off. That being said, you’d never know. Freaking orange juice (yeah the name, got it. Thanks). Opening the can was like having someone slap you in the face with a clementine. Straight citrus notes. Highly drinkable and full of flavor.

16 ouncer, 08/05/20 stamped on the bottom of the can.

Hazed up NEIPA look, hazed, under a minor cap and leaving just a bit of lacing left on the glass.

Oranges and pineapple on the sniff.

On the palate is lots of oranges, ripe pineapple and bananas....complex and tasty...go get some

Great orange juice taste with a high degree of hoppy bitterness. Decent mouthfeel and light- medium body. Must try at least once if you orange tasting double IPAs

Hazy almost cloudy gold; two fingers of frothy white head; ok cap retention; heavy ring, soapy lacing. Strong pineapple grapefruit dank earthy nose. Firm semi sweet malt base, lite lemon zest bitter balance; pineapple grapefruit orange lemon. Medium minus body; moderate carbonation; juicy without feeling full or fluffy; hop burn tip of tongue. Overall tastes juicy without the fluffy feel; some lingering bitterness balances the sweetness; a NE DIPA I actually enjoy - I could drink 2 of these pint cans, very nice!
