16oz can. Poured out a slightly hazy, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of honey, orange, pine and sweet caramel. Very sticky sweet with huge doses of honey. Some sweet citrus and sweet caramel.

Pint can poured into a classic Chimay Goblet

A wild honey coloration, totally hazed-out. Creamy looking foam topping, thin layer, bubbly with thick edges. Good lacing, minimal coverage.

A sweet and fruity hop aroma is interesting, wild Heather honey scent with an herbal and Woody backdrop. Overly ripe cherries and raspberry sticks around with a bit of vodka esque alcohol heat tingling the nose.

A thick and chewy feel from a malty or honey effect in the mouthfeel catches me off-guard. A full bodied feel, smooth, but more of a hefty, or rotund style feel. A thick malty presence...sweet, bready and honey soaked flavor makes the 9.6 % abv seem reasonable!

The hops are dense and deep but also bring some strangley unique flavor's when combined: sour citrus, dense mango, pineapple and herbs, pretty much sums it up.

I'm going to let this all settle in for a bit.....√
O.k....so I've come to the conclusion that Multiflora is a BEAST ....more to come.....
Heavy weight body feel, loaded with sweet malts and honey sweetness, high alcohol and crazy funky layers of hops.....be right back.....
Complexity of the feel and flavor is just crazy. But....too much malty thickness, too much sweetness and too many hop flavor's to really jam together seemlessly. The big aspects speak for themselves, but the overall balance and flow is just way to nuts.
If it wasn't for the heavy feel and extra malty head buzz alcohol crush this might just be crazy good.

So there are West Coast IPA’s - smooth bitterness, tons of tropical hoppiness... Then we have East Coast IPA’s - lighter on the hops, met by a hella malt backbone... And we can’t forget hazy’s - citrus and tropical fruits, along with yeasty and estery textures... And then there is this: the Trillium/Odd Side effect: juice IPA’s. If Buzz Aldrin said, ‘hey partner, let’s get faded!’ I imagine his tang drinking ass would want something like this. Huge orange juice flavors are met by a very pithy aftertaste. Now, Raul is still getting used to these ‘juice’ IPA’s, and this one is just ok.

Poured a semi-cloudy golden color with a four finger head into Spiegelau IPA glass.
Good head retention.

Aroma: vanilla, citrus, tropical fruit.

Mouth Feel: very creamy and smooth for the style.

Excellent taste complements the aroma: citrus, pine, tropical fruit, nice balance.

Moderate hoppy finish. Excellent balanced DIPA.

This brew is a lightly hazy orange-gold ale, from an aluminum can, with a nice white head. The aroma is fruity, malty, complex, spicy, interesting, and wild. Tropical fruit, mixed with spice and alcohol warmth stand out. The mouthfeel is full and luxurious. Wonderful beer.

16oz can served in a big snifter. Looks like it was canned on 03/15/18.

Pours a nice coppery amber with a smallish head and medium carbonation. Smell is booze and straw, reminds me a lot of a barleywine.

Taste is sweet -- super sweet. Honey, flowers, maybe mango of the sweetest variety. I can't decide if it's too sweet, or deliciously sweet. Hops aren't absent, but they're not up front.

Mouthfeel is thickish, flat, sticky. Overall...I like this beer, but if I wanted something bitter or crisp, this isn't it.
