look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours hazy pale orange in color with a thin half finger white head that retains nicely.

Smell is great. Fresh citrus hops reminiscent of mandarin oranges and a moderate piney resin aroma. Sweet smelling grainy pale malt is on the back end.

Taste follows the nose. Mildly sweet grainy malt is forward along with a citrus hoppy tang that cuts through the sweetness of the malt. Mild piney bitterness follows that is very nicely balanced and not overdone at all.

Mouthfeel is crisp refreshing, light yet good bodied. Mild carbonation and juicy hops make this very drinkable.

Appearance - Bright Orange Caramel color with light foamy head.

Smell - Lots and lots of citrus with some piney finish to the smell.

Taste - Wow is this one nice and smooth. Nice bitter start and a smooth citrus finish

Mouthfeel - This one was very smooth and almost tasted like it was on nitro.

Overall - This beer was a great. I was happily surprised with the trade and would love to get another sometime soon.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

It's not much of a looker. Murky and dingy yellow. Looks like dirty pineapple juice. A little white head, but not much.

...but it smells delicious! Sticking with the pineapple theme, there's a lot of it sling with grapefruit, dragon fruit and/or kiwi.

Tropical flavors as stated above, but not as pronounced as the aroma. Grapefruit and dragon fruit, a nice combo of bitter and sweet.

Sticky and juicy mouthfeel. Leaves a sticky coating in my mouth.

English style IPA. Ha. Yeah, right. It's a juicy citrus and tropical American IPA, but I don't care.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Batch 286-287, Opened: 1/17/2014. 1 pint, 6 fl oz. 9%

Intriguingly opaque with deep reddish and golden colors like a fresh-pressed apple cider.

Chilled to 40 for two hours before opening.

Standard conical pint glass.

The head was light with fine to medium bubbles that faded to mostly a ring of microscopic bubbles around the edges within five minutes of pouring.

The initial nose was bright and citrusy with a strong earthy dankness

The taste was big on pink grapefruit, ripe melons, and sweet squash. Hints of toasted almond and raspberry jam.

Mouthfeel was big and full with a bready character. The finish was sweet that quickly faded to a long bitter and nutty craziness that lingered.

Subsequent topping off of the glass did not resurrect the head.
