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.

The beer pours a nice fluffy and slightly creamy off white head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is a clear and consistent gold. The smell has strong yet delicate floral notes with a nice malty sweetness to add a little something extra. The taste is similar to the smell but slightly more bitter and more roasted malts. The body is medium bodied but is very light with biting carbonation. Overall, a pretty good beer and worth getting.

A. Stiff pour yielded an impressive 3 fingers of head. Gold in color and clear. I can see there is lots of carbonation in this.

S. Very floral with slight citrus in there too. Pretty aromatic

T. Follows the nose. Floral and perfume-y with a hint of pine. Malt is barely present. Quite bitter.

M. Medium Body. Medium to high carbonation. Dry finish.

O. This would be nice on a hot day but I would only be able to drink one as I typically don't care for floral IPAs

12oz can with a Best By Date of 9/23/14 stamped on the bottom of the can. Lots of lacing. Pours a pale golden color with an inch of frothy head. The aroma is lots of citrus and pine. Lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit. The taste is lemon, lime and orange peel upfront followed by pine. Finishes nicely with grapefruit bitterness. Some floral notes throughout. Medium bodied and slightly oily. Slight alcohol presence. I am very impressed with this one. Overall, fantastic IPA.
