The nose had tangerines, floral perfume, apricots and honey. The flavor was very light and refreshing with lemon, honey, light bitterness, floral hop character and a bit of pine. Kind of a simple yet oddly diverse this is a nice refreshing beer.

12oz can into a tulip.

A: Pours a clear light copper with 1/2" white head that fizzles out quickly. Retention isn't bad, lacing is OK.

S: Excellent balance of juicy fruit, semi-bitter grapefruit & citrus zest notes. Plays perfectly off of an almost sweet, fresh-baked bread malt note. Very nice.

T: Just builds on the nose. Comes on with fresh grapefruit & some juicy fruit notes almost reminiscent of starburst candy (in a good way). Mid palate is pleasantly bitter & follows the initial fruit-sweet hit perfectly. More of that delightful bready malt plays in slowly toward the tart, citrus finish. Stellar.

M: Moderate carb married to a light-ish, somewhat crisp body. It's a touch syrupy right at the finish.

O: This is a fantastically enjoyable VA IPA.

12 oz. can. Hazy orange. Smells of orange hops and a caramel malt. Smells like crystal malt or something like that. Tastes of bright sweet malt. Some toasty malt. Grapefruit. Moderate bitterness. Slick mouthfeel. Not my favorite.

A big shout out to the captain of the canship, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is strong of tropical fruits, citrus. Taste is hops, tropical fruits, medium bitterness, light citrus, tasty and refreshing. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall a fine beer worth seeking out.
