look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy amber orange in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has bright flavors of citrusy hops—oranges and lemons stand out in particular—along with a moderate amount of bitterness. Faint hints of bready malts are perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and rather crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is rather unique for the style in that it uses subtle flavors of bready malts as the underlying base, which both accentuates the hop flavors and bitterness and keeps the beer very easy to drink. The combination of lemon and orange flavors is also interesting.

Thanks to Craft_Compulsive (Reddit).

Pours a light fizzy head that fades quickly to barely anything, clear slight copper nectar orange color. 3.5

Nose brings that typical candy orange peel hops, little citrus rind, like orange peel in jello, faint spicy earthy hops, mild sweet candy malt. 3.5

Taste starts with sweet malts again, candy and caramel, with mild sweetness. Then hops, mild to fair bitterness, little candied orange peel again, touch of earthy spicy hops. Seems more like an older ipa. Finish is sticky sweet, candy malt, little orange rind and spicy hops lingering. 3.5

Mouth is med bod, little sticky, nice carb at least. 4

Overall pretty meh, very boring bland ipa, decent bitterness, too sweet candy like, also probably old. But no date on the bottle so bad on you guys. 3.5

An interesting IPA. The head is good and quickly leaves leaving a nice residue. The aroma is nice and has a touch of orange??. The taste is exceptional even though the citrus is predominate. The hops and malt take second fiddle to the citrus, but somehow, ait all balances quite well. Good job on this one. Will definitely drink again !!
