Notes: The hop combination of Azacca and Simcoe creates a unique and intense mix of tropical fruit flavors up front with a creamy mellow finish.

From a tall can, this brew is a cloudy, hazy, orange color with lots of floaties and a tall white head. Great lace. The aroma is very fruity...mango, orange, and more. The taste is balanced...sweet in the front, but it dries out in the finish. Lots of fruit flavor. Boozy, fruity, interesting.

OK, I'll admit it: how can anyopne resist trying something called "Vito the Beer Whale Cat"??
Undated can into pint glass. Pours a very cloudy dark straw color with a modest off-white head that dissipates quickly. Initial impression is orange, grapefruit, mango, pine, with a nice malt balance. Alcohol is not at all evident. Mouthfeel is juicy and creamy, with perfect carbonation. Finish is smooth, fruity, juicy, sort of sweetish, but with a slight lingering bitterness.
First beer from Fat Orange Cat, and it's a good one!

This is a very simple and easy to consume DIPA, that offers a nice balance but not too much in terms of complexity, hence making it a nice choice to combine with food. Mild bitterness and a light sweet malt flavor profile that works well flavor wise.
