A: The beer is very hazy whitish yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a narrow collar around the edge of the glass and lots of lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate aromas of gooseberry and lime are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional notes of mangos with hints of stone fruits. Little to no bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and a bit juicy and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The use of oats and lactose in this IPA lightened up the body a bit and also lended some smoothness to the mouthfeel.

Serving type: can

Pours a super murky light yellow, with a real milk shake look to it. Aroma is juicy fruit and a hint of lactose. Taste is much the same. Very easy to drink.

16 oz can, not dated but pretty sure it's the most recent batch and around 2 weeks old

Hops: Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe

I have been pretty burnt out on this style, but this is about as good as it gets. It just tastes so similar to other hazy IPAs I've had from other breweries. Nothing special, but well constructed.

Edit: Lowered score after trying it with 4-5 weeks on it. Did not hold up at all.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on October 5, 2018. Brewed with Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe hops, pale malt, oats, wheat and lactose. Look is orange gold with a white head and sticky lacing. Smell is floral with hints of orange, pineapple, grapefruit and pine. Taste is citrus fruit and notes of lactose. Feel is medium in body.

A: Pours an extremely murky medium to dark golden honey in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate burnt orange + golden yellow + apricot colored highlights. The beer has a finger tall fizzy foamy white head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy citrus/grapefruit, citrus/tangerine, tropical/mango, and tropical/pineapple hops as well as light to moderate aromas of dank resinous hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + wheat + oat malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel + lactose sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + wheat + oat malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel + lactose sweetness. That is followed by strong flavors of juicy citrus/grapefruit, citrus/tangerine, tropical/mango, and tropical/pineapple hops as well as moderate flavors of dank resinous hops. The hops contribute a minimal amount of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving moderate to strong lingering juicy citrus + tropical hop flavors.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially slightly crisp with a soft mid-body and a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink and extremely enjoyable with well hidden alcohol. Amazing juicy hop flavors and aromas with just enough lactose sweetness. So glad I finally got to try this one and so fresh. Awesome beer.

Orange gold beer. White head that leaves large bands of lacing. Smells like orange, pineapple, grapefruit and pine with some floral notes. Nice sweet fruity flavor with citrus and lactose sweetness. Pith and pine finish. This is a really great beer.

Murky orange with a slim creamy covering that leaves heavy lacing on the glass. Juicy grapefruit, tangerine, mango puree, peach, and light pine resin aromas. Big hoppy flavor - leafy, oily juiciness. Grapefruit zest, mango, lemon, berries, light wood, and piney freshness. Medium bodied, creamy feel with a dry finish. A little more raw than the other IPAs from these guys - delicious.
