12 oz. Bottle

Pours a nice yellowish color, pretty nice carbonation, with a nice small thick/creamy off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with some citrus. The taste is hoppy, malty, citrusy. Medium body, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.

Tulip glass at brewery

Not super strong odor, but mostly floral.

Nice darker orange and hazy.

Feel is nice but not great. A little deflated and thicker carbonation that sharp microbubbles.

Taste has a little bitterness in the finish, which isn't an extremely pleasant type of bitterness, and a nice opening darker sticky hop flavor, without much citrus.

Better than I expected.

This beer pours a beautiful, bright hazy golden orange color with a small white head. Retention is next to none and there are a few small spots of lacing. Smell is hoppy but a bit muddled. Pine, earthiness and citrus with just a touch of bready malt. Also some sort of metallicness. Taste is the same, also very muddled. The only taste that stands out is the bitter pine on the finish. The citrus tries to come through, but is washed out by the bitterness almost immediately. Feel is light, smooth and a bit creamy. Overall this beer is OK, but certainly will not be a repeat purchase.

A"pleasant" ipa at best. The bitter aftertaste remained so long it pretty much took away any enjoyment. All bitterness without any real flavor. The mouthfeel was really poor. Wouldn't turn it down but glad I just bought a single. I like Hoppy Boy better.

Poured from the bottle a bright and clear orange color with one finger of creamy white head. Nice amount of sticky lacing left behind.

Aroma of tangerine, pineapple and pine.

Tasted of tangerine, baby aspirin, pineapple and a moderately bitter bite in the finish.

Lighter bodied and sticky with an average carbonation.
