Subdued sweet tropical notes on the nose. Taste follows well with a nice bitter kick on the taste and swallow. The bitter kick is slightly overwhelming on the finish as it hides some of the tropical notes...

Slightly hazy straw color with a sudsy white head. Ripe tangerines on the nose with some melon and berry notes, too.

The tangerines are the dominant flavor, and the berry is very prominent, too. The mouthfeel has a nice bite, and the finish is crisp and satisfying. A primo example of a West Coast-style IPA, I could drink this until it came out my ears.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

16oz can poured into snifter glass...

Look:
Gold, clear, fizzy white head with sticky lacing.

Smell:
Sweet and hoppy.

Taste:
Sweet, floral, fruity. Guava. Citrus rind bitter.

Feel:
Medium body. Crisp. Minimal carbonation.

Overall:
Wonderful smell and taste up front, but quickly finishes a bit shallow. I wish it had more carbonation. My can was 90 days old. It didn't feel special to me.

On draft at the location.

Nice medium/ dark gold in color, thin white head with decent lacing most of the way down. Nice and clear.

Citrus / orange on the nose.

Orange peel, grapefruit, some floral and grassiness hit up front. Fairly short finish. Malt balances bitterness without becoming evident in taste.
Nice medium carbonation and light to medium mouth feel.

Could be a good go to IPA.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned September 26th 2018. Freshy fresh fresh!

Frothy rich pour out of the can, with a chunky thick capping white bright head of fine foam, and fistful height. Flirts with a little chaotic appearances, but has also a gem glowing crystal clear body of fine lemon bright brass color, and touches of fine tangerine orange. Ample and random champange like carbonation strangely, with odd streams and fine linear reaches of spaced bubbles, and touching pill lacing and rings. Great classic looking brew.

Great aroma. Fine touches of excellent citrus qualities. Lots of ripe sprity orange zest, and even some floral like hints and perfume like qualities. Light icing sugar touches of malt to balance and contrast, but largely hop forward and impressive, with excellent melon juicy quality as well.

Palate nicely sings. Juiced and rich body with a mild leafty sweetness of mixed mint and tea aftertastes, but with a mid palate that hits melon, citrus and tropic smorgasborg. Wondeful touches of even lime and orange, with some bright but light melon like quality that's a little hard to distinguish, but leaves a great impression. Soft and just fluffy texture and flavors.

Big home run with this one, and just a great beer all around.

ridiculous IBUs and clear! Old school. I found a four pack in Denver Colorado that was canned the week before! I found cans of this also in San Francisco in Ocean Beach corner store. Bitter and delicious.

Poured from a 16oz can with a canned on date of 6/11/18; into a pint glass.
Appearance- a gold snow globe of bubbles, oils and sediment supporting a medium thick, soapy white head; scattered islands of thick, sticky lacing!
Smell- faint aroma; some citrus fruits, cantaloupe and freshly mowed grass. Some pineapple in the can after it sits.
Taste - a dank blend of orange peel, cantaloupe and arugula, quite tasty!
Feel - aggressive hop bitterness upfront, but the pepper/spice arugula notes pulls it back to make it feel more balanced; really well done!
Overall- traditional west coast style, so I really enjoyed this; could use a more profound nose and at over $4/pint, I’d just as well have a $6 pint on tap.
