4.14/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Super cloudy, very pale banana-orange color with close to two fingers of rocky sea foam head. Decent retention and decent soap bubble lacing.

Big grapefruit, cat piss, green onion, weed and pepper in the nose. Fairly floral, with some light gunpowder and clay behind.

Even more intensely weedy and pissy taste, with more of that doughy, floral element beneath. Nice grassy bitterness on the backend. This one goes to eleven and then some. No holds barred. You’re almost chewing on the hops here.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It’s honestly hard to get a feel for the feel through the hop burn.

Possibly the most hoppy NEIPA I’ve ever had, and that’s saying something these days, isn’t it? The doughiness isn’t something I like in this type of beer, but the hops are so over-the-top that it hardly matters. Not the most intricate or balanced beer by any stretch, but the pop from and depth of the hops makes it worth a go, even with that whole schtick getting old in 2020. Definitely enjoyable.

16oz can with no dating visible, opened 6-20-20.
2 finger white head with excellent retention. Dense, foamy lacing early and perfect rings of lace late.
Yellow-gold and fully opaque IPA. Some late sludge made it's way into the glass, even with a careful pour - minus .25.
Aromas of pineapple, zesty grape, weeds, an underlying yeasty edge and a soft malt base.
Herbal zest and vivid tropical flavors, definite passion fruit / pot thing going on.
Full body, low bitterness with a soft mouth feel. Lengthy fruit-drenched finish.

L - Haze-bomb murk; good head, good lacing, a little chunky sea-monkey action at the end of the pour looked like sediment, but hey - some people pay extra for that.
S - Nothing delicate here about the blend of tropical hops and dankness; almost too tropical for me, but cuts the line nicely.
T - More of the same, but with a subtle bitterness from Nelson that undertows the otherwise tropical mix here, in a good way. The vinous notes play a nice balancing act with the sweetness and the malts here.
F - Full palate impression, just mouth-coating fruit juice here; does NOT taste like a 7.1% IPA. Too dangerous, even in Space.
O - One of the better tropical IPAs from ORB in a while.

Creamy looking lemon curd haze adorns the glass while sitting majestically underneath a bubbly ivory canopy of head. As the CO2 ascends aggressively, hop particles burst leaving a trace of graffiti emoticon lace on the inner walls of my Spiegelau. Smells of ripe Nelson hops chock full of gooseberry, pinot gris, and white grape accents. Additional hints of dank herbal notes, grapefruit peel, cannabis, and pineapple. Taste follows leaving suggestions of melon, passion fruit, and a raw/cutting Nelson character that's biting, and acidic. The mouthfeel is semi-thick, chalky, coating, and somewhat astringent. I love it. Thanks, Dave!

A- Pours from the tallboy can into an 8oz becher with a very hazy/floury body. The beer is a very pale yellow hue and a cap rises up quickly to a finger high with good retention. The creamy foam ends up leaving two massive sheets of lacing at the top and mid of the glass.

S- The aroma is very fresh, clean and brings plenty of strength with the hops. Reminds me of Citra and Mosaic with the soft stone fruits, tropical fruits, light citrus, dank and floral hops. Big notes of mango, melon and dank weed as well as pineapple, onion, tangerine, creamsicle and bubble gum. Impressive hop balance with hints of oats and whole grains as well as suggestion of medium sweets.

T- The aroma transfers over to the taste buds nicely without massive changes to the hop profile and thankfully none of the burning bitterness that many recent NEIPAs have. Juicy fruits with some citrus, dank herbal, floral and some berry hop notes. Mango, pineapple, papaya, tangerine, onion, dank weed, garlic, grapefruit, vinous grapes, berries and gooseberry. Moderately sweet and oats come to mind.

MF- Medium bodied with a high level of carbonation. The texture of the brew is foamy and fluffy. Ends with a clean herbal bitterness.

Really impressed with my first brew from this brewery out of CO. So many recent NEIPAs just burn the palate but this one has a very fine aroma that leads right into a very diverse and balance hop profile on the taste buds. Great use of Nelson and Galaxy.

Beautiful pale yellow body with an opaque turbid body; head is dense and creamy, long lasting. Powerful scents of lemon bread and powdered sugar, lemon and orange juice. Bright and tart citrus hits the palate; white grapefruit and lime; biscuit settles in after the wild fruit and citrus punch; acidic with some alcohol presence. Medium-heavy body; dry and acidic; some fine alcohol heat.

Want a wow beer? This one is it! Intense and flavorful across the board.
