Pours hazy orange into a fifteen ounce glass mug the same temperature as the beer. Firm two finger off white head that finally settles into a patchy rime. Nice lacing.

The nose is ripe peach followed and mixed with mango and floral hopes. Some biscuit notes.

Floral hops hit the palate backed up by a big malt backbone. Caramel notes with a little grassiness. Well balanced. Crisp and refreshing. A little hop bite on the finish. Great job by the brewers.

Medium smooth body. Perfect carbonation.

This is one fine brew. Well balanced flavor that comes across as a diminutive IPA. Earned a spot in my beer cooler.

16oz draft pour into a pint glass shows a dark/dirty orangish, almost amber, colored body and floats a 1/4in medium sized bubbles of head and leaves lacing that begins smaller and begins extending into longer soapy strands as the glass empties.
Aroma is fresh malty goodness that is almost floral. It's similar to the freshness of bedsheets allowed to dry outside on the line.
Flavor is similar but takes that classic Three Floyd's bitter hop turn to close.
Mouthfeel is medium and clean.
Overall a very well done APA, despite the name.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear deep orange. Smells of very bright tangerine hops. Tastes of tangerine also. Very bright citrus. Biscuit malt. Aggressive bitterness cuts a little bit of sweetness. Medium light. Very good.
