16oz can poured into a pint glass looks an orange tinged gold, slightly cloudy body supporting a 3/4in cap of mixed bubbles. A 1/16in cap is sustained throughout and moderate continental lacing is left behind.

Orange aroma is the winner here. From the moment the can is opened until the glass is empty, a flowery billowing aroma of lovely orange citrus juice entices the nose.

Flavor matches. The orange is strong, but not cloyingly sweet. I taste a hint of honey at the end, a nice way to cut the citrus. Very drinkable.

Mouthfeel is thin with very little substance, more honey might have provided some substance. Lightly carbonated.

Overall a great summer drink for all day long.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 1 pint can on April 5, 2018. Canned on 03/26/18. Session IPA brewed with honey, Citra hops and blood orange juice. Excellent session beer.

Pours a light hazy yellow. Thin white head dissipates slowly leaving a thin foamy white head.

Smell has notes of blood orange, citrus, orange, pineapple, and fresh hops. Very light flavor profile yet still fruity and flavorful.

Taste is initially orange and grapefruit with some notes of pineapple honey and citrus. Gives way to a grassy hop flavor on the back end. Not very bitter. A bit in the seeet side, but not overly so.

Feel is light and crisp - super easy drinking.

Overall another great addition to the pipeworks guppy session IPA line.
