Pours a clouded yellow color with a huge, stable eggshell head.

Smells of ripe oranges, luscious papaya and powerful limes together with a lighter nuanced herbal, skunky spiciness.

Has a soft and refreshing mouthfeel with a late, yet vivid carbonation, creating a convincing refreshment.

Tastes of orange pulp, bitter lime zest and lots of exotic fruits, gently entangled into caramel malts with a herbal, grainy character to them. Offers a velvet, blueberry and passion fruit driven mid palate, together with a good amount of white bread dough. Finishes creamy and bitter with a well working sweet and rustic malt backbone, leading to a bitter, long lasting aftertaste.

This is a great IPA uniting many desirable West Coast IPA qualities with an NEIPA fruiti- and softness.

Poured from a 12oz can

The look is a hazy golden amber with a nice fine almost creamy looking 2 finger head. Starts getting rocky and shrinks a bit but sticks around and leaves some lacing.

Aroma doesn't seem to be the main event here, but on there is some fruity/citrusy hops with a fair amount of American yeast "beer" scent. Some lighter bread malts peak their heads out at the very back, briefly.

Taste is quite similar to the aroma but more big and apparent, but with less of the fermentation character. Lots or zesty notes here bitter but quite lemon and orangey. Again some bread pale malts in the back. It's a pretty sweet one but nothing artificial seeming really.

Feel is present but crushable. Carbonated but not excessive doesn't have a major bite but is there at just the right amount. You can feel the malts in this one as you drink smooth but big.

Overall it's a nice take on a modern ipa. Not grapefruit for once but lemony and orangey without being too much all at once. Still crushable, some might say it's a bit vague.

In Brighton:
LOOK: Pours a very hazy amber color and has a slightly off white head that recedes to a thin skin while retaining some
solid side glass lace.
AROMA: Tart grapefruit first and foremost, along with citrus, piney and floral hops.
TASTE: More malty on the palate than aroma would suggest. Bread malts balance the tart citrus, piney hops.
Drying! Think this was a pretty solid IPA.

Crisp and clean. Straw color and clear. Nice head and retention. Solid IPA flavor. Nothing spectacular, but very drinkable. Enjoy!

Picked up a can at a supermarket in Pennsylvania. It was close to its best by date so probably not as good as it had been fresh. This was a very straightforward sessionable IPA. Easy to drink with light malt and citrus. Not to bitter or memorable. Glad I tried but I won’t search it out.

Pours a cloudy, dark golden amber coloration with a small, creamy head. Smell is rather unassuming, with some faint doughy malt and citrus notes coming through. Taste follows the nose, with a decent balance of equally faint grainy, doughy malt and floral, citrus hops with notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pine and a light herbal/grassy note. Finishes with a medium bitterness and some citrus notes and light pine lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

A decent IPA that's a tad too heavy on the grainy malt and floral hops for me, but still has some nice citrus notes and piney bitterness, although the hops feel a bit faint.

[Original rating 2016-07-10] Can. Pours clear light gold with a medium white head. Aroma is bready, straw, soapy. Taste is bitter hops, citrus, metal. Not a bad beer but with so many other great IPAs out there I wouldn’t get this one again.

Drank from a 12 ounce can.

Look - The blue and yellow color scheme is nice, but the layout of the name is weird and confusing.

Smell - Distant hops and buttercream icing. Like a typical IPA but much sweeter.

Taste - Much like the smell, it's a sweet IPA. It's an unnatural sweetness too, not like a pleasing malt sweetness.

Feel - Medium body and mild carbonation keep this beer perky.

Overall - Not a fan of this at all. Weirdly unbalanced to nothing in particular. Unappetizing and unappealing.

Looks like a regular beer with a clean straw color and nice carbonation. Smells a light hoppy aroma and tastes slightly hoppier. It’s super easy drinking and you could hammer these down. Overall it’s a good American IPA. On draft at Ron’s Corner Tavern.

This is a beer. There is nothing special or interesting about it. It’s a beer.
