4.41/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5
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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
On tan, 16 ounce serving, in a “beer can “ glass.

Washed out pale yellow OJ looking hazed liquid with a less than a F white cap. Light soapy lacing.

Mild citrus and pine aromas with white peach.

The stone fruit flavors come through with peach and white grapes. Pine sap and a touch of citrus peel.

Unsweetened juicy feel, medium bodied. Hop bitterness leads the way.

As haze bombs go, a good one.

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.

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.

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.
