4.26/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber color capped by an inch of foam that leaves a number of strands behind

Smell: Floral and citrusy, with sweet orange and pith tones

Taste: Hop forward, with a blend of orange, pith, tropical fruit and just a touch of honey blending through mid-palate and the finish; a little grainy in the aftertaste with biscuity malt underneath

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This is a very nice IPA that is hop forward, well-balanced and with the floral sweetness, a somewhat individual approach

Serving type: bottle

Can shared by stillmatic2232.

Pours a hazy amber orange, with a small half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells very fresh and delicious- lots of citrus hops, very floral as well, which makes sense given the name.

The taste is similar. Nicely juicy, with orange, pineapple, and grapefruit, along with a finish full of hop resins and oils. Only a small amount of sweet grainy malt is present, doesn't distract from the hop bonanza.

Medium bodied, light and airy on the palate. Mouthfeel is crisp and fairly dry, with a medium amount of carbonation. Very drinkable.

This is an excellent IPA, juicy and delicious.

Thanks to nhbeerguy for sending this over an extra

A: Slightly hazy, golden yellow with 2.5 fingers width of off white colored head, dissipates down slowly and leaves a good amount of lacing.

S: Citrus, tropical fruits, tons of dank resinous notes, and sweet malts to balance out the hops. Pretty nice.

T: Piney bitterness, citrus rind, subtle tropical fruits, balancing malt backbone.

M/D: Medium to full body, carbonation is appropriate, fairly smooth for the style, drying on the finish, drinkability is average.

O: Tasty beer. Glad I got to try it. Id drink this again for sure.

Poured from the can a clear-orange-gold with two fingers of frothy off-white head. Sheets of lacing left behind.

Aroma of baby aspirin, tangerine and delicate malts.

The taste matched the aroma with baby aspirin, tangerine and a soft malty finish. Light bitter note lingered through the finish.

Medium bodied and clean with a moderate carbonation.

An easy drinking IPA from Cambridge Brewing Company. Perfect for a hot summer.
