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

Got this bottle in a trade and sat on it a couple weeks so i cant be sure how fresh this is ...

A looks pretty carbonated. A bit murky but nice golden yellow color. Not much lacing

S not as floral as i was expecting given the name, i get lots of citrus; specifically oranges. Also getting some breadiness. Overall tho the smell is a bit muted and im wondering if this bottle has seen better days.

T quite nice. Again lots of orange juice and some breadiness. More floral notes coming thru in the taste than i was getting in the nose.

M very crisp. Smoothed out nicely as it warmed. It's refreshing.

O a solid, refreshing beer that i could drink all summer tho id like to try this again from a known fresh bottle. This one kinda reminded me of a hopped up fff gumballhead

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - Extremely thick, almost opaque light orange brew; almost looks pulpy. Thin head (<1 finger) of white foam with short retention and little lacing.

S - Floral, tropical fruit, and citrus notes. Some breaded malt sneaks in, as well. A light, sweet smelling beer.

T - Similar to the nose: a lovely mix of hops. The citrus is more subdued than perhaps any IPA I've ever had, but that doesn't make it less hoppy. The malts thankfully take a back seat, but it's a well-balanced IPA.

M - Sweetness all around, hop oils lingering, medium body. Slightly dry, but that just leaves you asking for more.

O - This is an excellent change of pace IPA. It reminds me of Jai Alai, in a way. I could definitely drink this every day.
