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

Appearance: orange-orange. No head. Just small bubbles. Not much lacing. Thin and quick.

Smell: faint floral and a little orange peel. Not in your face aroma.

Taste: hate to say it, but orange peel and more citrus. Not too powerful. But hops linger for a few. Balanced well with the high alcohol level.

Mouthfeel: Medium-high carbonation. Medium-large. Not thick, but full body. Think Jenny McCarthy.

Overall: hoppy taste and strong bittering make this a hoppy, strong beer. Good. I would buy it again.

poured in tulip at hopworks. Solid amber with amble off white head and good retention. Nose is all citrus with orange and grapefruit. Bit of caramel coming through. Taste follows with big Curtis hop and caramel madly back bone. mouth if all pucker with big bitterness, but good balance for iipa. Fine beer. Only one point for me though.
