3.59/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Deep gold body with ridicuous bubbles on the body, head is subtle maybe 1/4" off the body coming off white. After one sip,settles pretty quick. Almo

Smell: Citrus hops and light forest scent, not the best of scents

Taste: Nice smooth bitterness but is missing something. I'm personally attracted to complexity which is something this beer lacks. Grapefruit,bitter, and floral. Feels a bit like an extra hopped American Pilsener.

Mouth: Medium to heavy carbonation...average stickiness. Feels a bit chewy...not a bad thing.

Overall: Not bad brew at all, but there's much better options factoring price and availability. Split pack with your friends, would be worth it. Salud!

12 oz. can poured into a snifter. December 20th, 2013. This is old.

Appearance - Orange body. Huge white head. Great lacing and retention.

Smell - Piney hop. Musty. Toasty malt. Getting weird.

Taste - A little tropical. Sweet and citrusy. Pine and grassy hop bitterness and some toasty malts.

Mouthfeel - Bitter. Medium bodied and well carbonated.

Overall - Probably way too old. But I didnt like the hop profile.

Clear golden hue with bright white craggy head. Lots of citrus fruits on the nose, lemon zest and tangerine. Very oragney. On the lighter side of being medium bodied with brisk carbonation. Sweet citrus fruits through with sweet bready undertones. Bitterness is pretty high. A littler hebal and earthy on the back end. Lots of citric rind bitterness. Sweet breads combined with hearty herbal bitterness and bitter sweet citric marmalade. Pretty good.

Poured from the can into a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Canned Dec 20th 2013.

A Bronze and very bright orange body but a little bit cloudy strangely, with lots of fast rising thin carbonation. Head is four fingers, a little off white and thick shampoo retention and clumping.

Nose is interesting for a hop angle. Interesting smoke earth, a possible hint of citrus fruit. A little buried and subtle though. Some time the aromas are a little more noticeable with a nice orange tangerine sweetness.

A real wonderful nice juicy and full palate. Great mouthfeel that coats, nice thickness without a lot of syrup sugar sweetness and brings the flavors out nicely. Cool mint and refeshing hop aromatics on the mid palate, the tangerine and bitterness matches with a good slick malt sweetness. Complimenting earth like hop and pine aromatics on the swallow linger nicely after finishing, with some great minty mouthwash freshness to boot.

So incredibly easy drinking, and I love this hinting creamy full perfect mouthfeel.
