Nice milkshake like thick hazy dull golden look with an offwhite head. Pineapple tropical nose to this brew, let’s give er a try. Tasty semisweet then bitter tropical brew. Pretty darn close to creamy feel on this brew. Good stuff here. First I’ve tried from this brewer, I’ll hope to try another !

16oz can served in a big snifter. 20 306 is printed on the bottom, which might be November 2nd. Bought it from Tavour.

Pours super hazy, light yellow, medium to small head. Smell is tropical juice.

Taste is softer tropical juice and a strong bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, learning toward thick. Overall, very nice beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

16 ounce can in my favorite oversized imperial pint glass. Undated can.

Thick milky hazed liquid, churned grain in color. A thin white cap tops it and leaves heavy lacing.

A blast of pine aroma. It smells like a tree, Jersey green pine style. Citrus also, I’ll go with grapefruit and a touch of mango. At 8% abv, there’s a little onion aroma.

The hop flavors are there; grapefruit, mango, pine. Juice dripping sweet grain.

The look doesn’t deceive, it’s full bodied, juicy, and somewhat chewy. Smooth finish with a kick of its elevated abv.

The hops, alcohol, and body do battle with the juice to a draw. Not bad for the style.

Milky orange haze capped by a solid finger of lacing. Heavy citrus in the aroma, mixed with grapefruit & hints of papaya. A touch of grass on the back end. Taste follows with a more pronounced ruby red grapefruit expression. The mouthfeel is coating, and so damn soft. What is that, velvet?

4.25/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a cloudy goldenstraw with a one finger head; considerable lacing action

Smell: Citrus tones dominate, bringing both grapefruit and tangerine as well as passionfruit and a hint of mango

Taste: There is a bit of a biscuity malt base here though the citrus flavors of grapefruit and tangerine quickly take over; the bitterness is moderate and somewhat counteracted by the passionfruit and mango tones; the finish moves in a tropical direction

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; somewhat creamy

Overall: A little more austere than I prefer but a strong contender in the NE IPA category

A: Pours an extremely murky medium to dark golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate apricot + burnt orange colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense sudsy foamy off-white head that reduces to a small patch of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer (approximately 80%) and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Strong aromas of juicy citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange, citrus/tangerine, and tropical/passionfruit hops over the top of light aromas of pale malts + biscuit malts + oats with an almost orange juice-like sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of pale malts + biscuit malts + oats with a moderate amount of orange juice-like sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange, citrus/tangerine, tropical/mango, and tropical/passionfruit hops which impart only a hint of bitterness which fades away almost instantly leaving lingering sweet juicy citrus hop flavors.

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

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Amazing hop flavors + aromas as well as mouthfeel and I will definitely be looking to get my hand on again.

Super hazy, cloudy beer. Looks like oj with a finger and a half of off white head. A few random bands of lacing stay on the glass. Very fruity and hoppy nose with orange citrus and herbal qualities. Tastes sweet up front with a blast of orange pith and bitter hops. Nice medium body. Really tasty beer.

Murky dull golden hue with a short off-white head leaving some stringy, drippy lacing behind. Aroma is thick with dank fresh hop pellets...green resins, pink grapefruit, mango, and passion fruit. Big fruity hop flavors: fresh bright citrus juice - a blend of grapefruit, orange, and lime - and a colorful cornucopia of tropical fruits. Highly delicious, bright, and easy to drink. Creamy feel with a fairly crisp finish. It's hard to find a Citra IPA that gets such complex flavors out of the hop. Really well done.
