Piny, grape peel and tropical fruits on the back note of the aroma.
Very fruity upon impact, with such a smooth finish that it literally feels like it disappears in your mouth.
Slight notes of raspberries with a slight (!) bitternes after a while.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Boundary-pushing and pretty unbelievable, this beer definitely challenges what an IPA can be. There’s an insane amount of sticky, juicy hop aroma and flavor packed into the can, and the not-so-subtle reference to orange juice is pretty spot-on -- it smells and tastes like oranges. It’s somewhere between hazy and cloudy, there’s only the smallest amount of bitterness, and the mouthfeel is pretty creamy and smooth. My only objection is that after one or two of those the lack of bitterness can make it taste pretty sweet. Still, it’s incredible and iconic.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Close to perfect IPA. Pours a very cloudy orange/light brown, like chicken stock. Very strong aromatic tropical/herbal aroma, explodes with tropical fruit juice (pineapple/mango most prominent) on the palate, continues citrusy/earthy with a clean bitter finish. Just outstanding.
