Can into tulip.

Super hazy orange pour with a half finger, tight bubbled, snow white head. Lacing is quite good.

Smells of super juicy oranges, light mango and grapefruit with some lime zest and some sweet candy sugar. Very little in the way of pine or wet grass. Very bright and juicy.

Grapefruit and orange peel in the taste in the middle of the tongue. There is some bitter pine but not much. Dry bitter finish.

Light body, medium the high carbonation.

This is something I wasn't expecting. I bought it as a joke between my Fiancee and I and I am thoroughly impressed, the smell alone on this beer is worth the cost. Will definitely seek out again.

Pours a hazy medium copper with a dense one inch khaki head that slowly dissipates, leaving moderate lacing.

Pine, resin, and onion begin the aroma, with a bready, caramelly malt at the base. Malt and hops are both well represented. Dank notes and grapefruit surface late.

Toasted breadcrust, caramel, and an almost charred character combine with grapefruit, pineapple, and resin to form the flavor profile. It's initially sweet, turning bitter and resiny at the finish.

Body is moderate and a touch slick, with moderate carbonation and a touch of astringency. There's significant alcohol warmth.

Not your typical pale ale. Bitterness is there, but a bit more malt character and sweeter than most initially. Lots going on in this brew. Really enjoyed the hop complexity and malt. To my palate, a little more bitter than I prefer, but I really enjoyed this brew.

Drank it right out of the can.

Has a nice bitter hoppy smell. The taste is a well-balanced pale ale with lots of bitter, piney hops and a malty backbone with some bread and citrus. A really dry and crisp lingering finish with more hops and malt. Dangerously drinkable.

A nice brew from Evil Twin, and compared to their other beers, this one has an affordable price tag. And I must admit, I'm a fan of craft beer in cans.

Thanks to dogdoc for this one. Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a CCB pint glass.

A: Caramel gold with a bit of haziness. Forms a thin white head over fairly low visible carbonation.

S: Sweet caramel malts with pine and citrus hops.

T: Follows the nose. Big caramel sweet malts, pine hoppiness. Moderately bitter hang.

M: Sticky mouth, and a heavy body for an APA. The alcohol is more noticeable that expected for this moderate of an ABV.

O: This is a sticky, caramel-y, boozy mess for an APA. Not undrinkable overall, but one of the weaker efforts from Evil Twin.

This beer was a hazy orange color with a small white head that nevertheless produced a fair amount of lace.

More citrus aroma than anything else. There was a bit of pine, as well as some sweet malt.

Slightly bitter grapefruit and orange taste. Piney hops. Biscuit.

A hoppy beer, but not overly so. Certainly not what I was expecting from this brewery.
