It kind of smells like those gummi orange wedges. It has this wonderful tangerine/sumo orange and pine scent with an underlying sweetness of fresh brown sugar.

This looks like the perfect IPA. Its a beautiful lightly hazy pure orange with honey highlights. The creamy head is just off-white and evenly laces down the glass. If anything, I wish the head would have a bit more retention.

Orange marmalade and zest primarily. There is a nice twang on the finish which I attribute to the "zest" in this beer. Slightly bready but overall they did a great job keeping the hops forward in this beer.

Creamy and smooth to the touch, carbonation is on the medium to light side with a medium body. I get zero alcohol burn or taste which makes this dangerously quaffable. Well done!

My brother in law has this on tap at Vintage 51 in Chantilly.

I really liked this beer - a bit surprised it hasn't gotten better reviews.

It was quite a bit different than the other IPAs they normally have on tap. It has a citrusy bouquet a little like the HopSlam from Bell's. And it contains a really nice balance between the Hops and the malt. I definitely tasted the Hops without being overwhelmed.

Overall - excellent choice and I would pick this before the majority of IPAs I usually find around here.

A: This poured a nearly opaque gold with a little white head.
S: It smelled like fresh grapefruit and sugary oranges.
T: It tasted like sweet citrus and bitter resin, with some sugary honey. It had a lasting bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with some carbonation. Kind of light body.
D: This was a solid double IPA, with bold hoppy scent and taste. The body was a little weak, and the finish was a little harsh. So it wasn't terribly easy to drink, but it was still a decent brew.

Pours a hazy amber/orange with a decently thick white head. Not much retention but a slight collar leaves some lacing. The aroma starts out with strong citrus hops notes but as it opens up in the air it sort of drifts off. There's still some hops, but its not as distinct. The same can be said for the taste. All that being said, it still tastes and smells pretty good. It has a nice weight to the body and all in all I'm not unhappy I got it.
