Can says this is 6.8%ABV
Look - like copper yellow color with a very slight head
Smell - strawberry kiwi scent
Taste - kind of pilsner like with a slight bitterness with a slight grapefruit taste
feel - pretty dry lighter body with a crisp carnonation
Overall - lacking much taste, needs more

Canned 6 weeks ago.

L — Pours a nearly clear golden orange body with 1.5 fingers of solid white head produced with moderate pour. Good retention and lacing. Looks a lot like Sip o Sunshine
S — Carrot, strawberry, mango, kiwi, coconut, orange candy, banana, lychee. Smells more like a fresh-pressed juice than beer
T — The hops themselves aren’t much here, mostly grapefruit rind and a light grassiness, but the carrots do round things out quite nicely with their unique flavors.
F — Medium mouthfeel, medium carb. Some earthy bitterness on the finish
O — Very unique offering that highlights the creative juices that are flowing over at Fonta Flora

This is brewed with local carrots. It is a hazy, cloudy IPA that is bright orange. It pours with about a fingers head that slowly fades with a nice lacing. The smell is sweet, citrusy, mango, grapefruit. The taste is similar to the smell but not your standard IPA. Great hop bitterness, with an earthy almost rustic flavor which is from the carrots. However, I don't get much of a carrot taste. Great mouthfeel. At 5.6% abv it is really drinkable but full of flavor.
