Look: Deep brass shade of orange body, 1 finger white head, lively carbonation. Smell: Grapefruit citrus, spice, cereal grains, faint earth. Taste: Citrus upfront, earth, nice malt sweetness, faint funk, semi dry bitter finishes with more grapefruit.

Overall: Tiger stripes is right! That was all that was left in my pint glass when I finished. This is very drinkable and refreshing. Two qualities I love in my any kind of Pale Ale. I mean it doesn’t have a "Wow" factor but it is so good fresh. This brew is worthy.

Poured into a Riedel tulip from a can labeled best before 08May15. The liquid is a clear golden-orange, with plenty of carbonation. The pour kicks up a solid two-finger off-white head that leaves lots of lace and has remarkable staying power. It settles to at least one finger that stays almost for the remainder of the beer.

Aroma is wonderfully citrusy and bright - lots of oranges and tangerines, with a sugar cookie malt undertaste. Nicely balanced.

Taste follows the nose - bright citrus up front backed by sugar cookies on the finish. The finish is not as bitter as the hop presence would lead you to expect. Aftertaste is nice sweet candied oranges.

Mouthfeel is light-bodied with lots of carbonation - great for the style.

Overall, a wonderfully balanced and flavorful IPA. This is a go-to for me.
