Pours a hazy gold with a thin, dense white head that quickly disapates. Some lacing. Malt, bread, and subtle citrus aromas. The flavor is sweet and fruity with very little bitterness. Blood orange, grapefruit, melon, and papaya notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and somewhat flat. Light to medium body with a low carbonation level, almost cask like. There is a lingering fruitiness that lingers at the finish. Very good flavor, but lacking some bitterness to balance out the sweetness.

4.11/5  rDev +11.7%

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About two fingers of white head which slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Smell: A fruity and herbal hop forward aroma with good hints of citrus fruit and pine. Upfront citrus hops with hints of orange, grapefruit, mango, lemon, pineapple, tangerine, peach, and melon. Earthy and herbal hops with hints of grass and pine resin. Solid malt backing with hints of caramel, grains, cracker, and yeast. A pretty solid hoppy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and herbal hop driven taste with big notes of citrus fruit and pine. Citrus hops with some upfront notes of orange pulp, mango, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, peach, and melon. Earthy, herbal, and floral hops with some notes of pine resin and grass. Backing presence of malt with notes of cracker, caramel, grains, and yeast. A pretty nice juicy taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and pretty smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty good take on a IPA. Nice orange juice flavor along with some other fruit.

A 12 ounce can of IPA should beat this warm weather. On to the beer:

The beer has a grapefruit peel color with several big bubbles jumping to the top. The head forms half-inch thick, creamy, and sturdy, leaving thin lines of lacing around the glass. The aroma is pleasant and mellow. It's soft, with cantaloupe, mango, passionfruit, tangerine....basically it smells like a citrus fruit smoothie.

Some of the impressive aroma doesn't translate all the way to the taste. A tangerine coated in chunks of sugar starts off the journey. Kisses of mango and even pineapple make short appearances. Slight vegetal note slightly skews the palate off, but otherwise this is a fine IPA to pair with warm weather.
