Big thanks to Pete for this can...

A: Pours a nice cloudy light gold with one full finger of white head. The foam take a little bit to settle, and leaves a fair amount of lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is light malt, mild pine bitters, and a generous helping of juicy orange.

T: This is solid. It's sweet to start with a healthy malt backbone, but dang this beer is juicy. It's like I'm ripping into an orange. As it moves to the back end that pine hop bitter take shape. The finish is smooth with some nice lingering bitters.

M: Medium bodied beer. It's light enough on the palate, but had some heft. Sweet and juicy to start, refreshing, and bitter in the finish.

O: Very good beer. I actually really enjoy how much juicy orange is in here. I'm a bit taken aback in all honesty.

S-big floral and pine hops
T-same as the aroma but blended nicely with the malt in the background
M- so smooth. No noticeable carbonation and very nice
O- great well-balanced IPA

Pours a cloudy copper with an inch white head and solid lacing.

Smell is fruit, fruit and more fruit.

Taste: at the very front is creamy malt followed by pine and grapefruit. Tongue presses roof of mouth and the sweets arrive. Lemon, orange, more grapefruit, assorted citruses with rinds. Bitter on the finish but not puckering.

Medium carbonation, very easy to drink.

One of my favorite IPAs. Nicely balanced, refreshing, maybe a little cloying for some but this is a fantastically juicy, hoppy beer that is perfect for consumption in hot, humid climes.
