Can (thanks to phaleslu). Lime, orange, malt, and spruce/orange peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet tangy orange juice, malt and moderately bitter spruce/grapefruit peel flavor. Decent body.

Very flavorful beer. Most bitter beer of the bottle share. Possibly too bitter for me. Big dank resin flavor. Some pineapple citrus taste. Pretty good.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Look - Bright, golden orange. Short, white head with good lacing.
Smell - Pine. Dank. Mango.
Taste - Not as citrusy as most, but there. Pine and bread in the finish.
Feel - Medium feel. Creamy.
Overall - It’s hard to pick a favorite Ohio Double/Imperial IPA. Fat Heads Hop JuJu or MadTree Galaxy high? This is exactly what I would want out of an Ohio IPA. I was surprised when I saw it in cans.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can via trade with alexsdad06 pours a murky, deep orange with some lacing, creamy, white head. Nose has loads of sticky tropical fruit bubble gum, perfume, lots of honey, guava, some mild booze, some lemon-lime soda. The flavor is sadly a bit less refined, quite sweet and bordering on cloying, pine, rotting tropical fruit, candy sugar. Actually, some Belgian tripel notes lurking. Sure, there is some nice galaxy fruit flavor, bubblegum, but just a bit too sweet.

12oz can from alexsdad06 from 2015 FBW. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazy dark orange color with a nice frothy 2 fingers of off white head. Aroma of sweet juicy oranges, light pine, and caramel malt. Taste of tangy oranges, bitter zest, sweet citrus, caramel malt, and pine.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden orange color with a good defined head that ends up sticking to my glass. The aroma is very hop driven. There is good notes of tropical citrus juice, booze, and a grassy spice like scent. As for flavor it had a nice blend of sweet malts and bitterness. There is a medium level of dryness from the booze too. The finish is malty, boozy, and has a high level of lingering bitterness. The finish might turn some from this beverage but if one can hang on, then enjoy the ride. Overall with the flavor, good body, potent booze, and a bitter bite from the finish gave the drink character... I recommend this intense hopped up brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazy orange with a white head. Candied tropical fruits, sweet malt, resinous hops, pine. Full bodied. Booze overpowers the finish. Pretty solid but I’d like the booze burn reigned in a bit.
