A slightly hazy and pale gold brew with and white, sticky head that leaves lacing everywhere. Nice orange and pine scent in the nose with a decent amount of malty sweetness. The taste is very sweet with orange and malt, The bitterness is perceptible but only serves to cut the sweetness. I would prefer a bit more bitterness but this beer is damn tasty. I hate that this is a one month only beer.

Hazy gold with a creamy white head that settles to a bubbly covering. Hoppy aroma, but as with many of the IPA of the Month beers of the past, the hop profile seems muddled and sort of grassy. Fruity, yet it can't shake this odd minty, green, yeasty character. Juicier flavor, again pretty green, though the mango and citrus does come forward. Medium-bodied and creamy, drying out a little in the finish, but heavier on the palate than I like. I'm enjoying their non-IPA HotM beers much more.
