Appearance is a hazy orange color with a one finger white head.
Aroma is nice. Tropical, juicy, not too potent.
Taste follows the nose but comes off a little watery. This beer is one notch below being really good. It is what it says it is, a session beer. As they did a great job with the flavors in this one. Well balanced.
Mouthfeel is medium. Not much lingering bitterness but it does cost your mouth nicely.
Overall I enjoyed this beer and if they sold it here in Alabama and I was going to spend the day outside I would love a four pack.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Moderate head, under a finger of off-white color, full mix of bubble sizes, below average retention, not much lacing either, more random than a direct result of glass swirling. The liquid is a mildly bronzed orange with more red than yellow mixed in, good clarity yet without many bubbles to see. The nose has a powerful floral lift, honeyed with sweet orange, tangerine citrus, just lacks the herbaceous bite to come off as an IPA, there’s a malty caramel streak in there too but sort of lost in the shuffle, peach and pineapple fruit scents, overall pungency is impressive. Full-bodied, ever so slightly heavy and slow to move. The level of carbonation is acceptable, not obtrusive. However, probably could help make it a little easier to pound were it stronger. More noticeable malts here, cocoa, mocha and toffee frame the attack, arguably even before the tangelo and lime citrus pounce. Likewise, more grass, black tea leaf, and pine, albeit these smooth out by the finish. Clean, with a certain metallic edge to it. More gusto to it than many in its category, the kind of beer you may think is just alright at first but then you notice you put down 3-4 of them without blinking. Wins you over slowly but surely.
