3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big thanks to cosmicevan for sending a few cans of this my way. Served in a Funkwerks snifter.
A: Pours a hazy orange color with a frothy white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick ring that leaves some sticky and soapy looking lace.
S: Grapefruit with some mild honey dew melon. A little orange with sweet bread malts. Nice citrus notes with a great malt backbone.
T: A little more maltier on the palate, but there’s a nice bitterness that counteracts this. Grapefruit, some citrus rind, candied lemon and some mild resinous bitterness.
M: Medium to light bodied with a slightly bitter finish. Medium carbonation level with a slightly dry texture.
O: Really nice. Easy drinking, nice balance of flavors. Coming in a can is a plus for sure as well.
Serving type: can

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slutfest. Light gold, slight haze. Light citric aroma. Flavor is about the same. Not nearly as big as was expecting or hoping for. Loved the name and logo - wish the beer had held up to it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
very cloudy and golden with small white head and decent lacing, good citrus, floral and pine in nose. Malt does not get in the way but there is enough to make the beer bidimensional (hay/cereal). Body is medium. The 4 pack at 8.4 abv per would go down rather easily. Can only says 3 types of hop without specification. I think cascade and simcoe are two of them.

Piney, citrusy, caramel, and toasty aromas. Yellow-orange with average, white head. Dry, bitter, and very aromatic. Light-medium body, lively carbonation, and a zippy, refreshing finish.

Can (12 oz). Thanks to Tom! Hazy orange with a frothy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is fruity with citrus (orange, grapefruits, apricots) and piney notes. Taste is moderately malty with citrus (same as aroma), caramel, slight sweet/sugary notes and pine. Moderate but sticky bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden. Refreshing and drinkable. Very good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark orange color..can pour..slight white head..fairly hazy with small suspended particles..just picked up in ct..pretty fresh..canned it looks like 1/13...aroma is quite remarkable with mango..nectarine..apricot..bit of pine as well..bit of wet grass/ hay..taste is more of the same..a good representation of the nose..nectarine..fresh squeezed citrus dominant..rounded out by some sweet caramel notes..moderate amount of bitterness that lingers some on finish but isn’t overpowering..finish is really solid..absolutely no trace of the high abv..this is extremely smooth and deserves the kudos it gets for one of the better 2ipas out there..east coast..west coast..doesn’t matter this is quite well done from New England brewing..
