Clear tangerine with fluffy white froth.
Bright clementine with some sorbet sweetness underneath.
A bit of white bread and honey with big lemon peel and tangelo hops.
Mango finish and lemon hard candy linger.
Medium leaning to light, dry, salty, smooth.
Big IBUs and lean citrus make this more West Coast than the past few IPAs I've tasted. Malts are mostly straight sugar, but still give it more balance than something from San Diego.
Well-executed, if simple.

I had my first one of these in a sturdy glass mug at cellar temperature.
Perfect presentation. A long-lasting puffy two-finger white head leaves a pretty pattern of lacing behind, over a clear golden, sunset orange body.
The aroma, while not overly strong, is fairly heavy on lemon and orange. There's also a bit of a sweet yeasty smell.
A fruity orange juice taste is the initial flavor detected. This transitions very nicely into a drier, more astringent orange or lemon peel taste, and finally turns to biscuity breadiness in the finish. A resinous pine needle bitterness resonates for minutes after a sip. Done by the books, in highly satisfactory fashion.
Mild carbonation lends a seamlessly smooth and quaffable feel to this one.
There's nothing not to like about it. This beer will alleviate a hops craving just as well as any other IPA of high renown.
