12oz bottle poured into a snifter

Pours clear and golden with a foamy white head, citrus and tropical hop aroma with underlying toasted malt. Taste follows the nose with an emphasis on citrus, guava & mango chutney. Medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and finish. Nice citrusy pale ale

Looks great. Deep gold color. Cloudy with tons of lacing.

Aroma is weak. Mainly pale malts and some faint citrus.

You get a little bit of everything with the hops. A consistent bitterness all the way through, along with lemon, orange, grapefruit, flowers, grass, pine, and sweet bready flavors.

Body is light and crisp.

Good beer overall. I wouldn't buy it again though. This beer is more like a session IPA to me, but if you like a hoppy pale ale, you probably won't be real disappointed.

Light clear copper with a thin layer of suds on top.

Hint of fruity pebble and lemonade aromas, with minor hop notes and light buttery malt.

Slightly bitter with a sweeter malt supporting flavor, that ratio is probably why I like this more than most standard IPAs on shelves.

Well carbonated, not too thin of a mouthfeel.

Beautiful orangish color. Incredibly clear. Some citrus and pint on the nose. More of the same on the taste, but with a nice malt sweetness. I will be revisiting again fairly soon.

12 ounce bottle served in a pint glass.

Pours an opaque, deep golden color with a slightly off-white, 2 finger head with nice lacing.

Not a strong aroma like you would expect from an IPA. Slight citruis and pine.

Taste isn't bad. Nice citrus flavor with a bitter piney bite in the end.

For me , taste is the most important attribute, so I rate the overall the same as taste.

However, there are too many better beers for my money.

Woulld not buy a six pack of these.
