Pours a hazy straw yellow and orange color. Nearly opaque, yet, carbonation is visible. A puffy, frothy and creamy white head retains well and yields ring like lacing that clings to the glass.
The aroma first emits a burst of citrus fruit interspersed with a hint of herbal dank. Then, a burst of tropical fruit evoke aromas of mango, papaya and pineapple.
Big juicy taste opens up the palate, with flavors of grapefruit pulp, orange pith, mango, papaya, dry pineapple, peach and berries. Sweet to start, yet, a modest grapefruit rind bitterness becomes evident in the finish midway. The malt presence is firm, sweet and round, doughy in character. A light amount of piny and peppery hops flavors adds a nice spice.
Medium to full bodied with a moderate to gentle carbonation. The mouthfeel is fluffy, doughy, lightly sticky and chewy by way of its malt texture, zesty, juicy and slightly earthy through its hops.
Highly enjoyable DIPA/NEIPA that showcases many complex hops flavors, while still providing a light bitterness and accompanying malt flavors.

16 oz can into Stella goblet. No date.
Look is nice cloudy burnt orange. Nose is piney yeasty hops. Taste follows nose and is pleasant. Feel is medium. Overall, more of a west coast style and good at that.

Had on tap. Pours an opaque orange with a one finger white head that left little lacing. Smell is on the mild side with citrus and tropical fruits along with a hint of malt. Tastes of grapefruit, lime, underripe mango, resin and some bready malts. Light to medium bodied, lightly carbonated, somewhat sticky mouth feel, moderately dry and bitter finish.

Purchased in a 4 pack of 16 ounce cans. Poured into a tulip glass. The smell is very sweet and tropical grapefruit. Very nice. It looks like cloudy fresh squeezed grapefruit juice with a very rough white attractive head that leave decent lacing. The taste is sweet and tropical. The same as it smells which honestly doesn't happen all that often. Sweet and tropical up front with just a little bitterness to the finish. It has a grapefruit rind mouth retention that is not too bitter or unpleasant. A top notch Vermont IPA.
