The beer is a clear golden color with a nice foamy head. The aroma is very crisp. Aromas of the outdoors and a slightly sweet aroma that I can't place. The beer is a little light. It is similar to the nose with the hop flavors but just light. The taste doesn't linger long on the tongue but it is a very easy drink. Feels like a nice summer day beer.

A slightly hazy orange citrus look. No head. A light but glorious hop aroma. Taste is also somewhat light but very good. It's different in it's own right. A very nice American IPA. An easy drinking almost session able brew. Overall this is definitely one I'd buy again. A prime example of simple hopped American IPA. No date on the 12 ounce bottle just a code #.

"Best by 7/4/16"; drank 2/12/16 @ the Yarchives.

See-through pale orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a HUGE bright white head; strong, frothy lace.

Blood orange, funky dandelion & skunky ganja notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Blood orange & funky dandelion flavors up front; dry pineapple & faint banana notes on the finish.

A funky farmhouse vibe here; bold but not for me.
