4.27/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Clear golden yellow in color. Forms a smallish bright white, tight-bubbled head, but the retention is very good. Some light lacing.

S: Aroma is pleasant. First of all there is a candy-like sweetness. Along with a bit of orangey citrus, this one has the aroma of candied kumquats. There is a touch of pine in the mix, but the sweet orange aroma dominates.

T: Taste is very nice. Very low maltiness, but with a strong sweetness that blends nicely with the clementine orange flavor giving this beer a rather juicy quality. The pine comes on stronger on the flavor than the aroma and cuts the sweet orange flavor with a sharp bitterness. Finish brings out more citrus, this time in the form on candied orange zest.

M: Medium bodied. Low-medium carbonation. Mild to moderate bitterness.

O: This beer is packed with flavor, much more so than the average IPA. And while the hops dominate this beer, they are not at all offensive or overdone. A very nice beer.

Poured into tulip; golden orange with a fluffy bubbly white head, lively carbonation and some spotty lacing. Smell is lots of tropical fruit; mango, pineapple, grapefruit, orange, starfruit, and slight pine/bitter hops. awesome nose on this one, I love this type of IPA. Taste follows nose perfectly; clean crackery malt is obliterated by sweet tropical fruits and florals, moving into some pine and bitterness, but not enough to blunt how tasty and refreshing this beer is. Finishes crisp, a little dry, and clean, with some lingering bitterness. Excellent!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Dark hazy orange brown with small white head

S - Orange citrus, pine, and sweet tangerine

T - Bitter pine hits up front before sweet orange and light orange juice come through to give it a good citrus. Finish was slight pine bitterness that lingers on

M - Medium body with good carbonation. Leaves a light pine reason in the finish

O - Solid citrus IPA with good hop bitterness that lingers on in the finish.

(Served in a bow-tie)

A- This beer pours a clear apricot colored body with a thick creamy light butter cream head with a gentle carbonation supporting it.

S- The bright unripe citrus hops is full followed by a cereal and pale malt aroma that turns into a corn tortilla smell as it opens.

T- Th e full jammy unripe fruit hops have a green pith quality of ugly fruit and lime character. There is a nice touch of sweetness in the finish. The aftertaste is a pleasant green hop note that doesn't have any bitterness or pungency but is soon gone.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz with no alcohol heat noticed.

O- This is a great sessionable hoppy beer. The taste of hops have are really big with some nice depth and no bitterness. Very easy to drink in the summer heat.

Pours a pale golden honey with a white cap that wisps away quickly.

Distinct floral and citrus hops. Sweet malt aroma.

Citra bitterness and graham cracker. Simple IPA that delivers great balance.

I want to leave in mouth for a second or two, to fully coat mouth with the oily creamy texture of the hop though; crisp gentle hop finish. Probably a tad thicker for an American IPA i'm used to-but it's all good.

Wonderful collaboration that has succeeded. It's got the backbone of Ballast Point Sculpin and the juiciness of Flower Power. Damn tasty!

bomber poured into Guinness cup

A- Golden with tons of bubles. Nice white head about 1 finger tall
S- Hops, sweetness, earthyness
T- Not getting sharp hops. Gettig a well balanced IPA with sweet malts and hops for balance
M- Pretty standard body, not too thin or too thick

O- Tastey colaboration with FSW.

Pour is crystal clear orangish copper. Nose is huge with floral and citrus notes. Slight malt sweetness but mostly hops. Taste is magnificent. Hops offer just the right amount of bitterness to offset the malts giving breat balance. Flavors or citrus peel, pine and biscuit. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall one of my favorite IPAs on the market, though only a limited release.
