It kind of smells like those gummi orange wedges. It has this wonderful tangerine/sumo orange and pine scent with an underlying sweetness of fresh brown sugar.

This looks like the perfect IPA. Its a beautiful lightly hazy pure orange with honey highlights. The creamy head is just off-white and evenly laces down the glass. If anything, I wish the head would have a bit more retention.

Orange marmalade and zest primarily. There is a nice twang on the finish which I attribute to the "zest" in this beer. Slightly bready but overall they did a great job keeping the hops forward in this beer.

Creamy and smooth to the touch, carbonation is on the medium to light side with a medium body. I get zero alcohol burn or taste which makes this dangerously quaffable. Well done!

My brother in law has this on tap at Vintage 51 in Chantilly.

I really liked this beer - a bit surprised it hasn't gotten better reviews.

It was quite a bit different than the other IPAs they normally have on tap. It has a citrusy bouquet a little like the HopSlam from Bell's. And it contains a really nice balance between the Hops and the malt. I definitely tasted the Hops without being overwhelmed.

Overall - excellent choice and I would pick this before the majority of IPAs I usually find around here.

A: This poured a nearly opaque gold with a little white head.
S: It smelled like fresh grapefruit and sugary oranges.
T: It tasted like sweet citrus and bitter resin, with some sugary honey. It had a lasting bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with some carbonation. Kind of light body.
D: This was a solid double IPA, with bold hoppy scent and taste. The body was a little weak, and the finish was a little harsh. So it wasn't terribly easy to drink, but it was still a decent brew.
