look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Hazy dark yellow body with a foamy white head. Smell is incredible: papaya, pineapple, passion fruit, pear, peach, clementine, fruit gummies, and some dank hops amongst the juicy and sweet fruit. Taste does not fulfill the promise of the smell, still has good juicy fruit, but more citrus than tropical, little more pithy with the hops too. Feel is great with how soft, hazy, and creamy it is, though sweeter. I'm just going to keep smelling it

Poured into my Phase Three Glass. Cloudy pale orange with thick creamy lacing and head. Smell is citrusy orange and pineapple, as is the taste. Sweet and tangy, hunt od underlying bitterness. Medium body, kind of a thick full mouth feel with a bit of a mouth watering finish. Mild alcohol presence. Good, not great, but worth a try.

Had this on tap at Orange and Brew. Really like the smell on this one very tropical with a lot of pineapple. The taste was was pineapple and some pine on the backend. Very good effort bu Phase Three.

Released 9/25/19; drank 9/26/19 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dull orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big off-white head; thick, frothy tree-rung lace.

Orange citrus & table sugar notes in the nose.

Creamy medium mouthfeel.

Splenda, cream & mild orange citrus flavors; this was cloying & tough to finish.

Tastes artificially sweet; not one I'll return to.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on September 25, 2019. Hopped with Citra, El Dorado and Vic Secret. Thick haze. Notes of tropical fruit juice, pear, fruit candy, pineapple and subtle pine. Soft pillowy feel.
