Looks golden orange, hazy, some sediment. Very appealing.

Smells of orange marmalade, some malt, dank cedar or spruce, faint pineapple, other citrus and honeysuckle.

Tastes of citra hops and their dankness, orange juice, a slightly spicy pine and cedarwood on the finish, more faint tropical notes than the aroma, some flavor of honeysuckle and green grapes. Delicious.

Feel is good. Drying after enough sips. Medium-to full bodied but in a way that shows a well-balanced composition with the malt and hops in perfect harmony.

Apparently this must have been my first time really having it fresh; thought I had before but never enjoyed it so much. Fantastic fresh, pretty darn good with a couple months on it

A: hazy straw golden orange, nice head retention
S: orange rind, citrus more than any other tropical fruits. Nose was more subdued than expected however.
T: Mostly follows the nose. Juicy up front followed by gradual but lingering bitterness that's actually a bit much for my taste.
M: medium body, creamy, smooth, nice
O: Decent citra ipa, not quite what I expected but not bad at all.

L: Pours a hazy golden orange with a finger of white head. It dissipates rather quickly leaving a slight film at the top.

S: Some orange peel, grapefruit.

T: Follows the nose leaving a slight bitterness at the end. Some mango and pineapple also. No doubt a citrus forward ipa.

F: Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation.

O: So glad to find this one at Grand Cru in Rhinebeck. It's top notch.

A: Poured from the chubby pint-sized bottle into a Piraat tulip. Body is hazy straw-golden with a small whitish head on top.

S: Nice. Tropical fruits, spicy hops and sweet malt. A fairly strong nose.

T: Reminds me of the modern Session IPAs: tropical fruit hops over a relatively light malt base. Danky grapefruit and tropical fruit supply the hops, which settle over a barely-there crackery malt foundation. Finishes relatively clean with a faint taste of apricot and lemony bitterness lingering in the aftertaste.

M: Medium in heft, relatively smooth in feel.

O: This is quite good. My wife was born in Oceanside, just like this beer, but oddly enough after 22 years together, doesn't get me this excited.
