Extra from Orthodoxkardia.

16oz can pours a semi hazy golden orange color with an inch of creamy head. Tons of lacing.The aroma is citrus and tropical fruits. Orange, mango, pineapple and tangerine with some light floral notes. Toasted malts as well. The taste is more floral and piney than the aroma indicated. Some mango and tangerine as well as a good amount of malts. Piney hop finish with some tangerine. Minimal alcohol presence. Medium bodied. Overall, a pleasant surprise and a pretty solid IPA.

Pours clear amber with a finger of head and good retention. Pine, passion fruit, and a brassy citrus note on the nose. Flavors are muted citrus, bread, bitter hop finish that lingers. Crisp champagne carbonation and a dry mouthfeel.

Pint can poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours crystal clear golden yellow with a frothy off white head that settles and laces lightly.

S: Light citrus hops, maybe a hint of pineapple, a little fruitiness, and some light caramel malt sweetness.

T: Citrus hops, light grapefruit, tangerine, a little lemon grass, some fruitiness, maybe even a hint of tropical fruit, a touch of pine, and some light caramel malt sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Pretty light easy drinking IPA. Not bad, but nothing special either.

Good initial hoppy taste but it just falls flat. Very watery finish. Would rather prefer ponto from pizza port

Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows herbal, piny and spicy hops along with slightly sweet biscuity malt.
Pretty hoppy flavours, mainly sticking to piny and spicy hops. Some soft clean malt in the background.
