Poured into a fancy tulip glass. A hazy bright golden color with a medium sized white head. Nice retention. Bright citrus aroma with some underlying dankness. Taste was as expected with juicy citrus notes, balanced with resin and earthy notes. Dry, bready malt backbone that totally features the hops. Medium bodied and dry on the finish. Bitterness fades throughout the palate. Overall a great NEIPA. not quite at the level of TH but close.

Oh-J pours a cloudy, somewhat thick orange juice color with a thick and creamy head. The smell is a big citrusy aroma with orange, grapefruit and a melon sweetness. Taste is big orange and citrus fruit including some zest with a medium mouthfeel.

Just had this on its birthday release at the brewery. The description and name promote mega citrus and the beer does not disappoint. I could be drinking a glass of ginger ale for all the alcohol notes which means there are none. This 8.1% is completely hidden away beneath exquisite sharp (yet pleasant) citrus notes. The flavor is a cross between eating a tangerine and giving a little nibble to the rind for a bery slight bitterness that is welcome and balances the fruit flavors.

This brewery has been growing in my esteem for some time. First Brightside IPA woke me up and made me pay attention to this little brewery in the Bayside neighborhood then they dropped Tessellation just to show they had the science down. I feel like this beer is their magnum opus. I've had Swish and Dinner and Heady Topper and the rest. I feel that this is the best DIPA I have ever had but I would like to let some time set in and go a couple rounds with Oh-J before I crown it. Right now, sitting in the pleasant tangerine wonderland they've brought to my senses it is hard to see myself seeking any other beer over this. An absolute masterpiece in brewing. This beer will become difficult to obtain very soon. Enjoy.....what a good time to enjoy brews as a Mainer.

16 oz can into chalice. No date.
Look is nice hazy yellow/orange. Smel is citrus with orange on top. Taste follows nose and has a funk at the end. Feel is light. Overall, not bad but I wouldn't seek it out.

Looks like orange juice.

Smells like orange, peach, pineapple, and mango.

Tastes like freshly squeezed orange with some bite from the peel. Hints of peach and mango, but orange and grapefruit dominate. White bread and grainy oats in the middle. The finish is lightly dry with a bit of grapefruit peel bitterness.

Creamy, but not gooey. Medium-light carbonation. Soft and silky.

Extremely well made, clean, citrusy NEDIPA. Excellent.

Canned on 6/21/19

Pours a hazy light gold with around a finger of frothy white head; decent retention yields a thin film of lace clinging to the glass along with a slight collar.

Aromas of pulpy orange juice, herbaceous pine, and bittersweet grapefruit nectar really burst from the glass first; herbal lemon peel shows a sporadic, citrusy twang, while some guava, pineapple, and other tropical undertones bring a slightly juicy sweetness.

Taste shows tangerine and a distinct Sunny Delight tone taking a backseat to a more pronounced dry, candied grapefruit, with some lemon peel sneaking in sans acidity.

Mouthfeel gives off a prickly medium body, sticky and lightly tongue-coating, and with a soft carbonation; lingering herbal bittering with a touch of hop burn woven in to an otherwise refreshing, juicy burst into the finish.

Unique and polarizing hybridization of West Coast and New England-style IPAs. Juicy, abundantly fruity, but coursing with an almost funky underlying bitterness that can both clash and integrate with the profile sip-by-sip; a bit of an anomaly, but it works generally more than it doesn't.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about seventeen dollars. Have had a few brews from these guys before. I have never been so torn about a review. From sip to sip it is very good to mediocre. Can't quite figure this beer out.

This thing is a dream. I cant speak, too busy with this fantastic bright yellow lusciously late hopped and even a crispness you love in the summer. Ya so, it's an 8.1% summer dream
