Clear amber colored ale with a small white colored head. This fits the color "IPA Orange."

Smells strongly of North Western type hops. Strong scent of tropical fruit, mostly pineapple and passion fruit. Citrus with a strong orange aroma. Little bit of pine but this is mostly citrus.

Starts out dry and woody with a herbal sappy after taste. Stays dry and primarily woody in flavor. Some citrus and a high bitterness level.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a decent IPA from a Can.

Nice beer. I had it from a can in a tumbler at the Bayou Pub just down the street from the brewery.

Pours into a nonic a glear light to medium golden with quite a large fluffy white crown atop.Aromas are quite light with some pine and toasted grain notes coming thru.Not in your face hops by any means on the palate,earthy and piney hops mainly with a hint of citrus,some toasted and biscuity malts in the finish.Eh not bad but not complex or flavor packed either.

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden copper with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass. There's some big chunky floaties.

The aroma is biscuity malts with grassy, minty hops.

The flavor is sweet biscuity malts and some minty soapiness with a big grassy bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, it's got a lot of bitterness, but I don't like the hop flavor or the biscuit malt.

L: Pours hazy gold amber under a 2” clingy white foam collar that takes 2 minutes to recede to 1/3 its original size. S: Spicy fruit and herbal nose seasoned with bread crumbs. Aromas are medium to medium high. T: Big fruit flavors with tropical notes joined by traces of melon and citrus over a bread crumb background. The hop flavors are medium high, the hop bitterness is medium and the malt flavors are medium. F: Creamy medium body, medium to medium high carbonation. O: A flavorful, refreshing and easy to drink IPA.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About two fingers of white head which slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Smell: A fruity and herbal hop forward aroma with good hints of citrus fruit and pine. Upfront citrus hops with hints of orange, grapefruit, mango, lemon, pineapple, tangerine, peach, and melon. Earthy and herbal hops with hints of grass and pine resin. Solid malt backing with hints of caramel, grains, cracker, and yeast. A pretty solid hoppy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and herbal hop driven taste with big notes of citrus fruit and pine. Citrus hops with some upfront notes of orange pulp, mango, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, peach, and melon. Earthy, herbal, and floral hops with some notes of pine resin and grass. Backing presence of malt with notes of cracker, caramel, grains, and yeast. A pretty nice juicy taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and pretty smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty good take on a IPA. Nice orange juice flavor along with some other fruit.
