A: The beer is clear and very dark reddish brown in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—oranges seem to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of citrusy hops and a light to moderate amount of bitterness but notes of chocolate are noticeable towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No crispness is detectable.
O: This is an interesting beer that starts off smelling and tasting like a citrusy IPA but then finishes with chocolaty flavors.

A-Pours a deep brown color with a lovely orange hue. Head is creamy and thick, beige colored with nice retention and thick lacing.

S-Bakers chocolate, some orange zest, coriander, fresh baked bread, some raw honey sweetness, dry wheat

T-No chocolate here, as the name would imply. Orange zest, raw honey, raw wheat, a bit of a citrusy fruit bite, slightly tannic with a zesty, spiced boozy finish. Rather refreshing.

MF-Smooth. Very smooth for an IPA as it moves around my palate. It finishes with a bit of a dry hopped bite, though, with is very refreshing.

O-A solid IPA. The chocolate only contributes to the look, so do not expect any in the taste. A delicious brew that could be enjoyed on a summer day on the beach.
