Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass. Appearance is golden, light brown in color with two finger thick head. Smell is pine and tropical fruit (really nice). Taste follows the nose with a nice orange flavor coming through and incredible balance. Mouthfeel is somewhat viscous with good body and relatively low bitterness. It kind of blends the pale ale and ipa styles, and the execution is almost perfect. Excellent beer.

22oz bottle, bottled less than 48 hours before opening. Poured into FFF pint glass.

This may knock Zombie Dust out of the top 5 beers I've had, the 16oz cans brewed in Lakeland, FL are good but this bomber from Decorah blows the cans out of the water. HUGE citrus notes on the nose, complimented by the most delicious fruity flavor. Beautiful orange color with strong lacing that sticks to every part of the glass. I'd even take this over King Sue, just wow. The perfect beer for me. Only complaint is how hard it is to get compared to the 16oz cans here.

16oz can dated 3/9/16
A: Light orange with a 1.5 finger head
S:Grassy, grapefruit, mango, pine, earthy - quite complex
T: More of the grassy/earthy notes come through here; the other notes are there but take second stage. Still tasty just doesn't quite match the boldness of the nose
M: Medium-bodied, crisp
O: This bottle is two months old and it's better fresher but still a fantastic IPA

All very well and intoxicating sweet taste, with a slight bitter aftertaste, which remains still for a while, after a sip. The color and smell of the same level !!!

Canned 4/27/16 (at BrewHub Lakeland). Pours a solid gold color clear but for lots of very fine particles in suspension. Thin but fluffy white head leaves a few streaky rings on the glass. Smell: mango, note of melon, lime, grassy, saltine back. Just a tiny pop of fruit loops goodness a citra single hop promises. Taste: limeade, grassy, sugared grapefruit rind, sugared dried mango. Medium bodied with creamy carbonation, thinning out and finishing a bit oily revealing it's sub 6% APA/seshIPA-ness. This is extremely flavorful.
