Poured a golden orange body with minimal head and no lace. Hoppy aroma with minimal malts noticeable as well. Smooth body with biting hop bitterness and a minimal sweetness and clean finish.

Nice look. Scent is exciting me; I'm getting pineapple, tangerine and sweet orange. Not getting any malt from the nose. Nice flavor with mildly sweet citrus dominating the start and then a bready malt flavored and slightly bitter finish. Maybe some piney undertones on the end somewhere. Crisp dry finish with decent carbonation. Decent depth for a session IPA. Good beer.

Reviewed from (long-standing) notes. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Fat Head's pint glass.

A: Quite clear and bright gold, with low visible carbonation and a finger's worth of white foamy head with average retention.

S: Juicy tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, and tangerines. Light cracker malts with just a slight grainy character. Pretty nice here.

T: Follows the nose - juicy tropical fruits, melons, and tangerine rind. A bit grassy as well. Cracker malts, again with a fair amount of grist flavor. There's a mild spicy hops flavor near the end with a restrained bitterness.

M: Average body for style, good carbonation sensation, and low alcohol presence.

O: I thought this was pretty tasty. Likely this would be in regular rotation with Invasion and Reef Donkey if readily available around here. A solid offering.
