16 oz. can. Hazy orange body with an ample white head. Smells of orange, lime, graham cracker, and a touch of vanilla. Took some warming for me to get all the adjuncts in the nose. Tastes much more strongly of lime. Cracker malt with some vanilla. Back end has a soapy combination of lime and graham cracker. Light body. Kinda gimmicky. I find myself searching for the key lime pie flavor instead of just enjoying a pale ale. Whether it comes together as a key lime pie flavor is debatable. It drinks pretty well either way.

Poured 16oz can into snifter. Color is a dirty yellow and cloudy with a 3 finger white head. A good amount of webbed lacing on my glass. Aroma is faint citrus, some lime pie filling along with sweet malt that kind of resembles graham crackers. Flavor is somewhat confusing on the pallet. It is semi sweet up front with the malts, hints of caramel and cracker with a touch of vanilla. Finish is citrusy and has some tart lime. Feel is a bit watery and light with some soft carbonation. This was enjoyable, but more of a novelty than a repeat drinker and I'm glad to have tried it.

Got in a BIF from oline73. 16 ounce can into signature tulip glass, no can dating. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big lemon, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, passion fruit, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, pine, vanilla, graham cracker, wheat, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome complexity and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical hops, lime/vanilla/graham cracker, and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, passion fruit, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, pine, vanilla, graham cracker, wheat, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/grassy/citrus peel bitterness and light lime tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, grapefruit, tangerine, passion fruit, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, pine, vanilla, graham cracker, wheat, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical hops, lime/vanilla/graham cracker, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy/sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is an outstanding fruited IPA! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical hops, lime/vanilla/graham cracker, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modest bitterness. A highly enjoyable offering.
