Canned 09/15.

Bright and bold golden orange. Hazy. Great head, little lacing, decent retention.

Awesome nose on it. Heavy on the citrus and tropical fruit. Orange juice, mango, apricot, pine. So vibrant.

The flavor brings it, too. Super juicy. Tropical and citrus. Pine is a little heavier in the taste than was in the aroma.

Clean, fresh, finishes dry. Good carbonation.

What a great pale ale. And in a can. Get some.

Bomber. Hazy orange with finger white head that slowly fades to a thin bubbly ring, spots of lace. Aroma of citrus and mango, toast, touch of yeast. Taste is similar, light toasted malt with juicy citrus hops that turn flowery and piney. Nicely balanced with lasting bitterness. Medium full soft mouthfeel. Very tasty brew, glad I got yo try it.

12 ounce can poured into a tulip glass.

All you can ask for looks-wise in an IPA: golden/copper body with a frothy, lace-laden head with good retention. Looks delectable. 5

Smells gorgeous. Grapefruit and unripe mango with a heavy floral dose and vanilla/caramel sweetness. 4.25

Bursting with grapefruit and orange juice followed by melon and a floral bouquet. The flavors are still bright, rich and delicious. Vanilla sweetness blends with the melon and carries the flavors out tastefully. 4.25

Zesty and juicy with moderate business balanced by smoothness and creaminess. 4.25

Delicious. No more to say.

Fairly clear orange/yellow color with a lot of head. Smell is an enjoyable earthy hoppyness. Taste is rather harsh and bitter based on the nose, but the feel is incredibly smooth and enjoyable. A solidly good beer.

Wow, this probably has the most pungent, dank hop aroma of all. Very impressive. Taste is smooth and balanced. One of the best fresh hop beers this fall.

Great mix of fresh hop flavors here with minimal bitterness. The simcoe seems most dominant but there is no shortness of tangerine and grapefruit as well.
