This beer pours a hazy orange amber with a whispy one finger bright white head. Retention is solid and there are many chunks of lacing. Smell is citrus, pine and sweet malt. Taste is the same. Feel is light side of medium and sticky, no alcohol present. Overall a solid beer, but I wouldn't seek it out. Only 2 weeks before the best by date, so maybe it would be less muddled if it was more fresh.

Delicious IPA
L - pours a hazy, copper color with thick, cling white foam
A - hops and lots of malt
T - maltiness on the nose is balanced out by hop and resin/pine flavors. Nice combination of refreshing and bitter on the finish.
F - medium body, sweetness from the malt and good carbonation

From the can, best before 8/12/2016. Collects in a snifter with a bright golden orange color and a healthy looking white head. The aroma is sweet malt and candied citrus, bubblegum, dried mango, candied peach, honey, melon mint, and artificial tropical flavors. Good carbonation on this one keeps it from feeling too sticky and sweet, medium mouth feel with light bitterness. Dank pine resin comes through in the taste, along with apricot fruit leather, cranberry, biscuity malt, passion fruit, sweet orange, and grass.

The aroma is peach and nectarine for days with some biscuity malt.

The beer is less tropical on flavor with up front citrus peel, orange, lemon, a medium breadiness with some resinous and floral hops. The beer dries out well with a full on bitterness that lingers on the finish.
