8/11/18...pours bright gold, and with white foam. Citrus nose, and citrus backed flavors,. The mouthfeel is on the thicker side, and you chew through the juicy and fruit filled malt flavors. Very good.

L - 2-finger offwhite head atop a burnt orange body.

S - pine, orange, cotton candy, herb.

T - lots of orange and tropical fruits (mango?), followed by a meaty taste I rarely find in ipas. Some pine, resin, a little candy sweetness. Only a touch of dank. Low bitterness. Moderate-low sweetness. Low booziness.

F - very soft, medium-light body with appropriate carb.

O - any beer that tastes like meat is a winner in my book.

Mostly clear orange-gold with strong effervescence and three fingers of airy, off-white head. It lasts a good while and leaves soapy lacing.

Papaya, apricot skin, a little pineapple, a little pine and a little pepper in the aroma.

Sweet tasting with much of the same flavors in the nose and a nice peppery note and a great piney, bitter aftertaste.

Light bodied for the style with very low carbonation.

I'm digging the West Coast flavors. The mouthfeel is really lackluster.

16oz can with date 8/10/18. Only a week old!

Look-hazy milky golden color with little head but nice lacing.

Smell- fruity smells of citrus and grapefruit, papaya

Taste- follows smell papaya, mango, grapefruit.

Feel- smooth and silky with a little dryness on the back of the tongue from the hops.

Overall this is one of the best beers if not THE BEST i’ve Ever had. WOW. If you can get your hands on this I recommend getting what you can!

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery.

A - Poured a nice hazy golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave nice creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of nice earthy hops and pine. Little resin forward. Bitter citrus peel finish.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with more dank resin hops light pine bitterness.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, crisp, clean.

O - Overall this was a solid dipa. The hops are decent but earthy.

Golden Orange Hue with minimal Lacing. Smell is muted; however, fresh fruit/rind/grass/resin creeps through. Taste follows the nose quite well....bit more soft fruit/brightness/sweetness shines through with finish of light dryness/bitterness. Very velvety beer with perfect carbonation levels & viscosity.

Orange, hazy beer with a short white head. Big wide bands of lacing left behind. The aroma is full of grapefruit, papaya, pineapple and pine with some sweet caramel. Tastes sweet with orange, grapefruit, papaya and a nice pine and pith bitter finish. This is a really tasty beer.

Deep golden orange color, brilliant white head with good retention. Sweet, fruit dominant nose. Big flavor here. Sweet candy tropical flavors initially with a crisp pine balance. Warm alcohol finish. Full slick mouthfeel. Solid DIPA.
