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.
