Yum yum yum. I like this beer. Nice warm golden color with a nice head with a nice flor. Hoppy but not overwhelming, the flor lingers on the back of your tongue. I would drink this beer again!!

The carbonation was heavy when I opened the can. So much carbonation forced a head, which is fine. Head was white to off white in color and mostly dissipated quickly. Beer color was deep golden, just enough to allow light through. Nose is hoppy, but more floral than citrus. Taste was more like old school IPAs, more hoppy bitterness than citrus, but I like it. Follow up allowed flavors to meld and the hops to grow then gently subside.

Poured from a can that I picked up at a local bottle shop. Nice creamy head and lacing. Brilliant floral and fruity smell. Dark yellow orange color but but cloudy. Taste is very strong bitter malty with hints of pine and citrus. Very typical northeast IPA. I really like.

Could be an every day IPA. Would like to blind taste off of 6.5% faves like Dales Pale Ale.
a) slightly chill hazed, the one finger head lasts and laces nicely over a bright golden body,.
s) Too faint, but it's orange rind, pine, flowers.
t) Fruit as promised with emphasis on candied fruit rind, over a creamy, malty caramel base. honey, and nice landing bitter.
f) Mid weight, good flavor see saw, clean finish, great food or first beer of the evening.
o) Smart American IPA, not overly hopped, close to a hoppy APA. Try 24.

look; golden, slight orange hue, thin head, nice lacing
smell; floral hops, sweet rolls, a little alcohol
taste; floral hops, grapefruit, lemon, grass, malt, full flavored, nicely balanced, doesn't taste even a little boozy, finishes as crisp and hoppy as it starts
feel; smooth with some bubbles, crisp, medium body
overall; a crisp, full flavored lawnmower ipa if you have a small lawn, very nice
