can. first thing you notice is the aroma while pouring this is amazing! You can tell how fresh it is. the taste is delicious, extremely smooth. Not as hoppy as some of my favorites, but everything else about this is phenomenal! I feel like I could drink like 20 of these in one night. so smooth and delicious

16 oz. can. Thanks Michael! It pours a very hazy/cloudy light orange color with a small but lasting off white head. The aroma is full with sweet grapefruit, pineapple, papaya, mango and hints of melon. Sweet tropical fruit, although not as potent as I expected. The flavor has a solid bready pale malt backbone, bordering on doughy with more big tropical fruits. Mango, pineapple and papaya. Not much else. Maybe a hint of spice near the finish with restrained bitterness. Mild astringency and grassiness. The full, pale bready maltiness makes me feel like this has mostly English base malt with that low flocculating yeast strain that leaves things a bit muddled. Definitely tasty stuff, but didnít quite live up to the hype for me.

[ growler ][ 1oz ][ @Tasting ][ $ ? ][ snifter ][ 12.06.15 ]
murky orange-amber, thin frothy small bubbled white IPAed. Root heavy, earthy profile, softly resinous pine balanced with some caramel, low malt. Profile equally muted, softly earthly with light moss, orange rind, resin growing through mid. Sticky finish, lightly papery. Itís balanced, but the lack of depth and nuance is clear. Literally, this isnít even novel?!

Beautiful floral bready hoppiness to the aromas. Beautiful cloudy Orange with lasting head. A beautiful hop that is there and then so ballanced that an ipa hater still will love it. Lives up to any claim.

Nov 2015 - Can share at Leightonís 15K, many thanks to Mr 15K himself. Hazy orange, cloudy, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is dried fruit, oniony dank, mint and spice. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is pine, honeydew melon, onion, watermelon, tangy fruits. Almost tastes like it has had fruit added. A very good IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a can dated Dec. 02, 2015.
Aroma is very hop forward with lots of mango and passion fruit. Some moderate orange and other citrus notes, similar to Sunny D. Some light dank and resin notes. Faint cracker malt notes in the background. Very juicy.
Pours a fairly cloudy and murky, dull orange color with a medium sized, moderateky thick, white head. Medium lacing and small legs.
Flavor is slightly sweet with a cracker note that lingers into the finish. Moderate bitterness with a lot of hop character. Passion fruit, mango, orange, tangerine and other tropical fruit and citrus are all present. Some light pine and resin notes. Dry finish.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice juicy, hop forward beer. Good bitterness, but not so much that it gets in the way of the hop flavors. I like that a bit of the malt carries through in the flavor.

Lil Tuesday Tasting in Odense. Muddy golden with a lasting white head. Citrus hoppy aroma with lots of orange peel. Sweet juicy hop flavour with lots of sweet tangerine, and a somewhat unpleasant green-leaves hop character. Light bitter finish

Brew served up in a gosh dang cane. Pours like OJ both orange and cloudy with a small white head. This has similar qualities to itís big brother but itís a touch more muted. Itís a touch more on the pot aroma. Mango, zesty lemon. The body on this is wonderful. The bitterness is in check and balanced by just a touch of sweetness. Much easier to drink.
