3.76/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 FL. OZ. bottle into a pint glass. Best before day 281 (October 8) of 2014.

Appearance: Pours a clear light orange/amber. Soft carbonation and a billowy white head.

Smell: Citrus and tropical fruits come rocking out of the bottle. Smells very good. I love the aroma from the Citra and Galaxy hops.

Taste: Not a ton of strong flavor except for being very bitter. The Citra/Galaxy hops are not as evident in the flavor unfortunately. I don't taste the blood orange puree nor the "natural flavorings" either.

Mouthfeel: Nice and light, aforementioned strong bitterness, slight alcohol.

Overall: Great aroma, a little lacking in the flavor department.

Great Deep amber-orange, almost completely clear. Minimal head and lacing. Aroma is of Piney Hops and blood orange. Blood orange is very pronounced. I am a Chef and I know bllod orange flavor, they hit it on the head!!. Taste is nice and hoppy with a nice back of the blood orange, once again !,. Very nice clean finish with a hint of orange peel. The orange rind/blood orange aftertaste is fantastic !!!!!!!!!!!!

A - pretty standard IPA appearance, though this one may be on the oranger side, appropriately. Nice creamy head and lacing.

S - The nose bursts with bright, fresh orange/tangerine/peach juiciness as soon as it hits the glass. The smell seems to mellow pretty substantially after that though.

T - A quick pop of piney hops and then a prickly orange/tangerine streak running through it, supported by light caramel. There's a constant interplay between pine and citrus juice that keeps things interesting. There are also some pink fruits on the finish, like guava and passion fruit.

M - mouthfeel is pretty standard-ish and pleasant. Both slick and creamy at times.

Overall, this beer is a really solid, refreshing summer IPA that still retains its punch.
