Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can in June 14, 2019. Double IPA brewed with Galaxy and Citra hops. Notes of passionfruit, orange pith, tropical fruit and dank hops.

Yet another winner from Phase Three. Looks like an orange cloud with light foam and lacing. Mildly dank notes of grapefruit and orange, slight bitter hop background. Taste is similar-citrusy, juicy, a bit of piney bitterness that I wasn’t expecting but is entirely welcome. Medium body, very mouth watering, really well rounded. Maybe one of their better ones because it isn’t entirely a juice bomb.

Pours a murky, completely opaque, matte brownish orange color. Beer appears thick and sludgy. Thin off-white head dissipates quickly but not quite completely.

Aroma has pungent aromas of peach, orange, clementine, some hop notes come through on the back end. As the beer warms up it takes one a kind of sweet orange creamsicle aroma.

Taste has notes of orange, peach, mango, and clementine. Somewhat sweet, with a mild bitter bite on the back end.

Feel is thick, sludgy and pretty smooth. Mildly carbonated.

Overall its a nice NE style IPA - fits the style quite well, but has nothing to really set it apart within the style.

This one was solid but didn't quite do it for me. The smell and the taste both had hints of pineapple and peach in it but they both seemed rather muted. Good beer but I was hoping for a little more .

The smell is wonderful. I’m a sucker for galaxy and citra hops, so I’m not surprised I’m loving this. My favorite Phase Three so far. I’m excited to find it and will keep buying them as I can land em.

Canned 5/30/19; drank 5/31/19 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dark orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a huge eggshell head; a thick curtain of lace.

Orange citrus, grapefruit bite & soft wheat notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Orange citrus & faint grapefruit flavors up front; soft wheat & a mild lager yeast note on the finish.

Mostly good, but the finish is a bit "off". Still not quite hitting their stride...
