One of the "juiciest" juicy IPAs I think I've ever had. Believably orange, more Sunny D or Orangina than regular OJ. Hops lend some dryness and touch of resin but the finish is mellow and not bitter in the least. Slightly fizzy. Good gravy the sun was hot though.

Intense compared to the others but still smooth. More malt more toffee rummy liquor brown sugar
Smooth start, smooth clean acidic finish. Not heavy. Roasted coffee flavor comes out after drinking along with oak flavor. The label and name had me concerned it was going to be gimmicky so unless this beer is using some food science trickery it's pretty legit. Also being from a can it lacks the metal twang of my last canned beer which is a nice bonus.
I remember really liking the Fall Apple Ale that is this beer's base, but I've gotta say, this beer is a punch of brandy in the face. Underneath that there's a dry floral hoppiness and beyond that it's very hard to get anything else clearly. A lot to take.
