Notes: One of our favorite variants from 2018 was Orange Sorbet Rings, so we wanted to super-size it with a 200 gallon batch based on Lord of Light! For this one Scott zested more than 100 Cara Cara oranges and heaped in 24 Vanilla Beans from Madagascar. The combination is rich and fruity, but without being sugary sweet.

Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a quickly fading off-white head. Smell and taste are orange juice, citrus, tropical fruit, slightly dank/piney hops, and a nicely restrained vanilla to round out the flavor profile. The mouthfeel is just a little bit too prickly and rough around the edges for the NEIPA style. No alcohol to be found, as expected for 5.6% abv. Overall, a great version of an OJ/vanilla IPA.
