Looks great. Crystal clear gold color, great head/retention and cascading lace.

Smell is floral, heal, and biscuity.

Citrus notes come through in the flavor along with the floral hops. Strong biscuit malt presence. Slightly sweet.

Mouthfeel is bitter and a little chalky. Dry finish.

Decent beer. I appreciate the balance but the flavor is a little muted.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tangerine, malts. Taste is tangerine, orange peels, light malts, mild bitterness. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing beer, but lacking the pop I expect from this style.

Canned on ... uh, canning code no date, thanks for nothing jerks.

Pours a nice fluffy creamy 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, nice soapy lacing, hazy sediment laden golden pilsner color.

Nose brings some citrus hops, lemony, little orange peel, then quickly turns to sweet candy hops, candied stone fruit, candied orange peel, weird herbal candy hop thing, then sweet candy malts, sweet tangerine later.

Taste brings sweet malts, candied hops again, candy citrus and stone fruit, a little tangerine juice, orange zest, little candy syrup, earthy and spicy, a little hop oil and extract thing, sweet citrus. Finish is a little dry, mild sweet sticky malt, candied citrus and stone fruit, a little earthy spicy hop.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall meh, kind of a boring style IPA, didn't seem to know where it wanted to go, or it could be old hops, but not quite sure since there's no date, too sweet and malty, hops were bland, just not a great IPA.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 oz can on August 19, 2016. Look is ok. Aroma is unimpressive. Taste is mango and hints of other citrus and tropical fruits. Feel is a little watery. Meh.

12 oz can

Pours a slightly hazy wheat gold, quarter inch of fine white head retains very well.

Smells of buttered biscuit malts, citrus, grassy grains, and light citrusy hops.

Tastes of bready malts, citrus, clover honey, and piney and grapefruit hops.

Medium body with tingly carbonation.

Nice even, tasty IPA. Good balance and good flavors. Notably impressive head retention. Well worth trying.
