superspak (5678) - Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2017 12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/25/2017. Pours crystal clear deep golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, red grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, toasted bread, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/pine hops, tangerine zest, and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, red grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, toasted bread, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus rind, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, red grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops, tangerine zest, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop/fruit astringency after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7.3%. Overall this is a delicious fruited IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops, tangerine zest, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Don’t really prefer this much over the base beer; but it is a lot more vibrant, tropical, and dank on hop/fruit flavors. Definitely a more modern hop bill. Nice malt backbone, without being sweet or overly aggressive. A very enjoyable offering.

Very full of citrus. Light enough for summer, but full enough for an evening indoors. Palate lasts a bit too long... like an orange peel. Super fresh and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the better fruit heavy IPA variations around. It pours a bright neon orange like a friscalating Fanta at dusk. The smell is like a slight orange peel and citrusy hops. The taste is a smooth, yes, tangerine dreamy experience with some slight hoppy bitter but mostly a slick juicy crush. It is deceptively drinkable and a treat for any occasion. Good for chilling on the lawn during a free Sheila E. concert next to the coolest dancing grandpa around.

Great play on an IPA. Minor citrus on the nose, but then a nice big bordering on sweet tangerine hit in the finish. Interesting progression.
