4.53/5 rDev +19.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Pours a clear tangerine, half finger of head, spotty lacing
Smell is a ton of bright orange, lemon, grapefruit, mango a little pineapple, maybe a little strawberry with a hint pine and caramel. Really bright and citrusy smelling.
Tastes is more of the same, grapefruit, orange, lemon, pineapple, citrus peel, bittering pine, bitter grapefruit, finishes with a light and I mean light sweet malt bite
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side, medium carbonation light drying but still rather refreshing
Well now, this is exactly the kind of beer I would want if I was on a beach or something! Really refreshing, really, really easy drinking, almost a little to easy. Very tasty, give it a shot if fruity ipas are your thing.

Amber in color, translucent and moderately bright, this IPA's sandy colored head doesn't achieve much height, but it's stronger than it looks. The foam maintains for the session, keeping strong at the edges as well as the thick layer that leaves behind some heavy spotting after a ring where it settles.
This beer shows the hops pretty well; it could be a bit hoppier, but the overall effect and the balance are good. The features are mostly dank and raw, pretty earthy overall, while demonstrating a striking similarity to ganja leaf in the middle. Just enough sweetness, including a touch of caramel, do enough to even out the bitterness and the dryness as herbal leaf goes into the finish.
The body is medium and holds up from the front of the sip to the finish, with a leafy dryness coming into the feel as well. It keeps crisp the whole way through and has the clarity and brightness despite the dank character.
