16 oz can. Pours hazy orange amber with a medium meringue head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass some.

The aroma is smoked toasted malts and tropical fruity hops.

The flavor is sweet toasted caramel malts, tropical fruits, and smoke with a big bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, it's very interesting. I like the blend of sweet caramel, tropical fruits, smoke and bitterness.

Pours dark yellow body with lasting foam. Very smooth, though residual tongue tingling. A mild smoke aroma. The hops are here, they support the smoke beer to make the latter something more complex. The hops lend taste, but are not the main show.
Can from Jason Bach, thanks buddy!

On tap at Bottle Revolution

A - orange with a thin, white head

S - citrusy, the smoke is very faint

T - bread, pine, smoke, citrus, wood

M - medium bodied, smooth, warming alcohol, well carbonated

This was a nice twist on an IPA. I was hesitant about the smoke, but it was subtle and played well with the hop character. I thought this beer had nice drinkability and to me it was a bit unique. It's definitely worth a try.

Pours a nice medium sunny orange, clear, with a slight off white head. Smoke in the aroma is somewhat minimal, but works surprisingly nicely with the citrus notes and tropical fruits. There's some slight leather and biscuit notes. Taste has a bit more smoke, though its still not hugely pronounced. Sweet bread and citrus notes, juicy and fruity. Body is slick, medium in heft, with a softer bitterness lever, so its not too harsh on the palate. Drinkability is nice. Would have been interesting to see how a really smoky nose and taste worked with an ipa, but its tasty nonetheless.
