Wow, the first bit of pour looked like orange juice and as I poured more and more in to my snifter it took on the color of orange soda, maybe a shade darker. There was a beautifully thick one finger white head that leaves some of the most beautiful lacing on the glass I have ever seen.

Smell is like a bigger version of Little Sumpin' Sumpin'... very floral with some beautiful citrus zest, pineapple and grapefruit coming up behind it. If they made this a potpourri I would have it all over my house. It smells really good. The only thing lacking, in my opinion anyway, is a little bit of pine to round out the trio.

Super floral in the taste as well, a little too floral though as it's bordering soapy. There is some bitterness to it as well but I was hoping for a bit more. Based on the appearance and smell I feel a bit let down by the taste. I really dig super citrus and pine IPAs and I think there is a reason there aren't many super floral ones but I appreciate them doing it.

Nice medium body to it, just the right amount of carbonation. Feels good, man.

Easy enough to drink even though I'm not enjoying that strong floral flavor too much. Maybe the soup I just made will bring the taste up a bit more.
