A - Super soupy orange, hazy with a lot of particulates, a middling off white head, tinted orange, pretty quick fade but leaving lots of lacing, small bubble and rockiness.

S - Sharp nose of citrus and mild pine, a hop line that dances into a bit of sharp wildness. Delicious promise.

T - Superb flavor opens in fresh citrus hop, strong malt core suggests cracker and bread, and a moderate bitter finish.

M - Moderate body, with a strong dry aspect but a soft juice-like acidity in the finish.

O - Superb. A very well-built orange juice oriented NE IPA. Not as soft as some, but very satisfying.

Expensive but fantastic NEIPA. ABV is very well hidden. Very crushable. Will seek it out every time.

Fat Orange Cat Brew Co. "This Is Not My Beautiful Beer"
ONE PINT can contract brewed at Dorchester Brewing Co. and coded "FOCBEAUT2-AH 1352"
$5.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: Great label art. Very cloudy orange body with lots of bubbles streaming quickly to the surface, keeping the inch and a half of off-white foam intact. The aroma is resinous, piney, and juicy with pineapple and mango. The flavor then delivers just that with a bit of tangerine and orange thrown in. It's big and juicy but the piney and spicy hops keep it from becoming sweet like a glass of orange juice. A median bitterness backs it as well, and some bitterness lingers in the finish once the malt subsides. In the mouth it's medium-light in body and zesty with carbonation. Looking back, the head dropped in an appropriate amount of time, and it's left some very nice lacing behind. Overall it's quite a nice NE IPA , and, one that's actually from New England. A toast to Billy the cat!

16oz can. Poured out a slightly cloudy, orange color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of tropical fruits, sweet caramel and toffee. Tasted of grapefruit, pineapple, mango and toasted caramel.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color. It poured with a short white head that left some lacing on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas oranges, pineapples, and mangos are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having a blend of flavors of citrus and tropical fruit hops along with faint hints of pine towards the finish. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and very juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This New England IPA is quite juicy and is very easy to drink.

Poured an orange gold body with great head and lace ring down glass. The aroma is both earthy and acidic. Fuller-bodied beer with a clean hop bite that is earthy but no bitterness. Beer is balanced with a light grapefruit sweetness with a clean finish and is easy to drink.

Pours cloudy orange color (appropriate for the name...) with a solid 2 finger bright white colored head that was full of tiny bubbled, faded very slowly and leaving excellent foamy rings as it went down.

Smells of orange peel, tangerine, faint melon and general citrus hop aromas, mixed with biscuit and light caramel. Overall not the most complex nose, but the orange peel and tangerine are fresh smelling and pungent.

Flavor is tart and zesty like orange juice, then it has tastes like the aroma with tangerine, orange peel, lime, faint melon, dry citrus hop aromas, biscuit, tea leaf, caramel and light floral accents. This is quite bitter and the citrus is almost puckering, but not harsh and it hides the ABV well. Above average for an IPA.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about twenty two dollars. Have heard of, but never seen this brew before (new to MA?). Just ok, nothing special, no way worth this price point.
