it pours an apricot orange with a haze that makes it look more like a juice than a beer. A finger's worth of fluffy white head falls to a thick ring with thick legs of lace painted over top of it.

Lots of juicy orange and citrus rind start things off. It's almost equally perfumy and floral. A fleshed out doughy, biscuit malt profile gives the nose some extra weight. It's a bit green and leafy as well. Fresh and light.

The hop character comes in more resiny and unrefined with a bit of sap and raw leafiness. The citrus is more peely than fleshy. There's still plenty of orange to be had. A twist of lemon too. The center is fresh and flowery. It's paired with biscuit and comes across as almost chewy. A streak of resiny, fruity bitterness extends past the finish.

It's medium bodied and clean with a bit of stick. The finish is dry and concise. It's tingly with a slightly below average level of carbonation.

It's fresh with a refreshing level of hop derived dry bitterness. There's a good mix of floral and citrus both in the nose and taste. It's a solid IPA through and through.

Pretty good tangerine flavour, slightly much on carbonation which makes it a bit Crush-soda like, but otherwise excellent drinkability.

Mandarin orange, clementine and a yeasty scent in the nose. Flavour is very much the same. There is a notable malt backbone, breadth, but mandarin orange is the dominant flavour. Medium bodied, quite balanced between sweet and bitter. Nice look at two hops I have almost no experience with.

Fresh bottle. Chilled and served in a tulip.
Solid pale orange colour. Good head that fades
Citrus nose. Mandarine/clementine aroma.
Light body with similarly light flavour notes. Definitely mandarin orange coming out with some mild spice. Moderate sweetness for a lighter brew.
Overall, very refreshing. Worth getting before it's gone.
