4.29/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, bright, orange-copper coloring with suspension sediment giving it an opacity. A frothy, thin, low profile, bright white head crowns this brew. Aromas of tangerine and grapefruit, with floral highlights and an effervescence that gives the beer a fresh and crisp feel. Some piney, resiny highlights on the nose, too. Flavors of rich biscuit and caramel sweetness support the tangy citrus blast and resiny hops presence that attack the forward tongue. Very well blended, and the carbonation keeps the body light and crisp. Citrus and piney blend on the aftertaste, with a bitter and slightly dry mouthfeel. Clean, crisp, dry finish. This beer is damn tasty!

3.81/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

750ml(?) Bottle poured into a Boulevard tulip

Look is a cloudy orange IPA color, long lasting creamy film. Smell is dank tropical fruits and pine. Sweet malt in the background. Taste has the fruits and pine of the nose, with fruity and peppery yeast, some dark fruit, and a dry powdery finish. Lots of candied fruits as it warms.
