Canned 11/27/19. Pours a beautifully opaque yellow-orange with a big fluffy white head that immediately disappears. Fantastically thick lacing. Aroma is slightly tropical, but muted. Taste starts smoothly tropical, then finishes with a bite, just a little bitter but not too dry. Medium mouthfeel. A really great looking hazy IPA that tastes almost as good as it appears.

L: pours a really bright and opaque yellow. Solid 2 fingers worth of head with great retention and excellent lacing.
S: guava, mango and stone fruits with some beautiful dankness. Wonderful smells here and this is definitely not a citrus bomb. Very tropical smells here.
T: taste absolutely follows, spot on. This to me is really a tropical hazy DIPA. With all the fruitiness it is not overly sweet and has a subtle booziness for a DIPA that comes through very well. Extremely well done.
F: great medium body with lower carbonation and a little less dryness on the finish than others in the same style.
O: this is an extremely well done NE DIPA. Different, beautiful aroma, phenomenal taste and an amazing beer.

Sweet, tangerine-citrus, tropical and dank hoppy aromatics on this one! Taste follows with subtle citrus bitterness and a nice dank hoppy bite. As it warms, the citrus bitterness becomes more prominent but still well-balanced. Great depth and mouthfeel on this one. Really good!
