Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark orange color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of citrus, light malts. Taste is citrus, dank, some malts, light pine, moderate bitterness, no alcohol. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

Pours blazing orange with abundant lasting head. Smell is assorted bitterness with candied fruit notes. Taste is tropical fruit with some piney bitternes and a solid malt backbone. Note: Let this one warm up for a few minutes, unless you like metallic tastes in your beer. The taste opens up quite a bit a few minutes after being poured into a room temperature glass. Feel is smooth but not at all thin, with just enough stickiness. Overall, not bad, but fairly pedestrian compared to many of their beers.

Darker golden slightly hazy look from this brew with a slight head from tap at the Rising Sun Inn in Franconia. This IPA has the citrus and malt combination on the nose. I really like the slightly sweet flavor of this beer. Very easy to drink at the percent which is a little dangerous. Has slight bitterness to counter the sweet malt, well balanced with a medium body and carbonation.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L--Clear, golden copper color. Two fingers of head that slowly faded and left great lacing.

S--Piney and citrusy. Smells like an IPA.

T--Piney and citrusy (Lemon & orange), like the nose. Hops are evident, but not dominant. There's a nice sweet maltiness that balances it out.

F--Sweet & sticky. Carbonation is good.

O--Never heard of Free Will, even though I live just a half an hour from Perkasie. I will definitely keep my eye out for other offerings.

Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a glossy burnt yellow/somewhat copper color. Quickly dissipating finger's worth of white foamy head that fell off with some adequate semi-sliding stringy lace.
The aroma smelled like orange marmalade with a touch of tobacco/earthy hops, some citrus pulp, light grassy sweetness and a little bit of biscuits.
The flavor seemed to meld all of the previously mentioned aromas together mainly sweet adding just a touch of some earthy dryness. Clingy orange marmalade aftertaste gliding along.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. Finish was slightly sticky with a touch of heat.
Overall, why is it every IPA I've been trying lately coming from PA has this "orange marmalade" flavor? I mean, it's not bad, just thinking out loud, I guess. I could still drink this again.

Received 12 ounce bottle as a pay it forward gift from my friend, MJ. Super clean initial taste and after taste. Everything was solid. Only category not consistent with an IPA was the smell which was a bit light. Definitely a very good daily drinker.
