Pours a hazy orange with one finger of white head.
Smells faintly of grapefruit, with lemon zest, pine, and two row malted barley.
Someway somehow this beer was a bad batch, all I taste is diacetyl/rubbing alcohol with hop bitterness, absolutely beyond fucked up.
Mouthfeel is hard to measure after such a horrific taste.
Overall, looked and smell decent, something went wrong with the beer, as I'm a week before the best by date and it's somehow bad already.

A - Burnt orange pour, just a finger of head.
S - Not a lot of hopiness, tropical fruit.
T - Hops and tropical fruits are most noticeable.
M - Light/medium bodied IPA with ok carbonation.
O - This is was just an 'ok' beer for me. Definitely drinkable and others should try it, I just wont be seeking it out again.

A very good, flavorful, IPA. A nice dark amber color with lingering hops flavor. I would certainly recommend to anyone to try it.

Picked up a can at the supermarket. Poured into a pint glass. I liked the hazy burnt orange color and nice head and lacing. Smell and taste is very malty to me and less citrus than I hoped for a hoppy beer. Not my favorite taste. Kind of a boozy feel due to the malty Taste. I won't be seeking out more.

Reviewed from notes, I poured this into a pint glass the day I had it. The appearance was a nice semi-dark golden orange close to a brown color with a nice one finger’s worth of white foamy head that levels a bit and ends up dieing to a decent lumpy coating over top of the body. The smell had a nice combination of pine to citrus (mainly lemon and slight tangerine) to balance to a decent bready background. The taste was a piney and citrus sweet leading into a balanced breadiness that had a decent bitterness running about the taste buds. There is a quick citrus to pine balanced aftertaste with a sharp dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionable aspect running about it. Sharp crisp carbonation defines the palate well and makes me think this is a pretty well done palate for its style. Overall, this is a very worthy AIPA to have again and would love to have this with its respected food.

Picked up a single at the Hilton Head Island, SC Kroger on Sunday for $1.49. Best by 9-23-17.

Beer poured golden orange with a decent white head that is retaining some lacing.

Nose is a nice combo of citrus and tropical fruits.

Taste is really well balanced between the ample caramel and pale malts and the citrus and mango hops. Finish has a touch of grapefruit pith.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly smooth.

Overall a very enjoyable IPA that i am glad i got to enjoy!
