4.19/5  rDev +5.8%

A: Medium gold to orange. 2 finger of fluffy white head. Retention 5+ minutes. Fingers are foggy when viewed from behind. Very consistent lacing.

S: Sweet tropical fruit aromas of pineapple, mango, orange is tempered by resinous pine needles. Solid malt presence as well.

M: Pretty smooth, just short of slick and creamy. More oily in feel. Medium body. Fitting carbonation level.

T: Good apricot flavor, orange, and grapefruit providing moderate acidity. Very well balanced as orange blossom honey and biscuity pale malts come into play. Lasting pine hop bite.

Light copper color, good perlage, good foam, creamy.
In the smell a good fresh hop. But easy and pleasant, not too overwhelming. Tangerine, lightly resinous.
More intense taste, citric and resinous, quite bitter. Pleasant.
Relatively light body. Easily drinkable.
In the aftertaste the citrussy note dominates.

Pours from the can a hazy orange with a nice white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Smells of pine and citrus, with maybe a touch of malt. The aroma follows the taste with hop-forward pine, grapefruit and a bit of sweetness. The malt does a nice job of moderating the hops without overwhelming them. Medium mouth with lots of aftertaste. I can't believe it's taken me so long to try this one. It's a very good IPA.
