16oz undated can.

Pours hazy yellow with a short-lived head of white. Pine, pineapple skins, apple, and grapefruit in the nose. Medium bodied with a soft, slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Pine-rubbed grapefruit on the palate with minimal malt and a firm bitterness. Finishes fairly dry with lingering pine.

Poured into a 16 oz Nordic pint canned some time late last week. Pours a very attractive hazy yellow orange with a half finger sticky white head that leaves thin streaks of lace with nice retention. 4.5

Aroma is mango, passionfruit, tangerine, a hint of pineapple, and apricot. 4.25

Taste follows mango, tangerine, passionfruit, pineapple, and apricot really well balanced. 4.5

Mouthfeel is above average, soft gentle almost creamy carbonation, not sticky or dry, and at 9% very easy going down. 4.25

Overall for me this is better than some batches of Dreamstate, but still not at the same level as a few of Kettleheads best batches. A winner for sure. 4.5

Drank up fresh on-tap at the brewery with Dub Apocalypse performing on a beautiful Saturday afternoon 8/20/22. Also two four pack cans at home.

Look: Thick, golden haze, orange hues with surprisingly little white foamy cap left and minimal lacing... (?)

Nose: Sweet AF fruity and fresh, earthy hop tones galore. Mango, pineapple, citrus, tangy and creamy golden malt... All sorts grooving together with a pict.

Feel& Flavor: Sharp, fresh hop and earthy feel and flavor. Deep fruity, earthy hops are deep and complex on the fruity level, finishing earthy and bitter, as it goes on. Boozy citrus and mango chunky complexity. Smooth, yet jazzy finish. Sweetness ends.

Overall: Two Megaton bomb breweries together with one hazy NE style attack. This is an epic late summer release.

From a 16oz can, undated. Released at the brewery today, 08/19/22. Served in a spiegelau IPA glass.

Pours a hazy orange-gold with a finger-plus of creamy suds. Retention is unremarkable, leaving a wispy cap and a tattered sheet of thin, slippery lacing.

Relatively faint nose is bready and fruity. Fruitcake. Smelling bread dough, pineapple and orange.

Taste is dense and boozy, sweet and fruity. Tasting overripe orange and pineapple, Meyer lemon, composty apricot, bread dough. Resinous with a boozy, lacquer thinner-like finish and a sour, composty aftertaste.

Feel is heavily juicy with over-gentle, prickly carbonation - a bit of a chore really. There's a significant boozy warmth in the gullet.

Overall, a bit too harsh and boozy for my tastes. Although it seems to be what the kids are drinking these days. There was simultaneously a dullness and a mild fruit-scented paint stripper sort of character. I did drink the whole can but I’m not 100% sure what’s going to happen with the other three. Still, at 9% abv, it sure gets the job done.

Edit to add: I drank the other 3 cans, because total He-man.
