A: Pours a light orange-yellow with about 2 fingers of white head

A: Smells like a nice, ripe, freshly peeled tangerine

T: On the first sip, you pick up lots of citrus; grapefruit, tangerine are the first two that come to mind. Very faint bitterness on the end.

M: Refreshing, clean, with a nice amount of carb for an IPA

O: Very enjoyable IPA; I can see why its highly sought after. Glad I got to try this.

Canned 3/12/18; drank 3/25/18 /2 the Yarchives.

Opaque orange/yellow appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice off-white head; strong, frothy lace.

Nectarine, grapefruit, mild cane sugar & faint dry grass notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Nectarine & mild cane sugar flavors up front; tangy grapefruit, dry grass & mild booze heat notes on the finish.

This smelled great & had a dynamite mouthfeel, but was marred slightly by the tangy, dry finish. Good, not great.

Very cloudy straw appearance with white head. Aroma is a nice grapefruit citrus with a hind of hops. Taste is a very pleasant grapefruit citrus with hops that has a slight bitterness

really smooth and juicy! great nose with just enough dank and plenty of orange/citrus.. a little pop of grapefruit on the tail end of the taste ... again everything is really balanced and nothing is overdone. not too heavy, but not thin on the mouthfeel either. this one is so damn drinkable
