L: hazy straw gold under a 1/2" off-white cap with fair retention. Some unsightly chunks bounce around the bottom

S: orange and honey joined by some biscuit and light citrusy hop aromas

T: Honey, blood orange, biscuit and bread crumb seasoned by a mild bitter lead the flavors

F: has a very creamy, luscious texture with a medium plus body and medium minus, very soft carbonation

O: the brewer has not gone overboard on anything resulting in a very drinkable, sessionable beer.

Can. From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. Playing Avernum 4. High carbonation. The orange and honey notes are there but instead of improving the beer they seem to dull it. I can avoid thinking that with simply focusing on hops it would have been much better

Pours a slightly hazed gold with a sliver of cream colored head. Preetty good lacing & above average head retention

S: Citrus, grassyness

T: Bready dryness, blood orange & scosch of grassyness up front. More blood orange and dryness as this warms. Finishes with sweet and sour orange, plus a bit of bready dryness

MF: Light/medium body, moderate carbonation, decent balance

Drinks alright about, 9 weeks old, it would be nice to try fresher, but this will do as a baseline sample

From the bottle, it pours a hazy light amber color with a modest head (possibly due to the very chilly temp). Definite citrusy scent in the nose. The mouth has a nicely balanced lightly fruity malt based flavor.

I tried this at The Diesels house. It poured a very cloudy yellow with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had tropical fruit zeal. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus peel presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a solid beer.

Pours from the pint can a cloudy light golden, with a half-finger of head and light lacing. Effervescent, with grapefruit pith and tangerine on the nose, only a bit of the added blood orange. Floral and fruity hop bitterness on the tongue, with a bright acidity that's very inviting. A nice summer session IPA.

16oz can, served in a snifter. Slightly cloudy, unfiltered golden orange body, one finger white head, good retention, medium collar, bits of lacing. Smell is orange pulp, a bit of grapefruit, light grain, slightly leafy. Flavour is straightforward, with pulp, touch of grapefruit. Slightly herbal, almost perhaps floral bitterness on the backend. Mild grainy sweetness. The finish is a bit slick, which I figure is from the honey, nicely done. Medium-lighter body, not overwhelmingly sweet or bitter in any way, easy to drink.
