Can. Pours moderately hazy. The beer is a dull, burnt orange. Darker than some you see. Light crown of foam leaves ghosts on the glass. Aroma is modest in intensity. It actually has some malt character too. Citrusy hops in the juicier variety. Flavor is more of the same. Bright citrus that moves into a sweeter citrus and finishing maltiness. A "New England IPA" with some of it's backbone crafted in the more traditional mold. Approachable.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that quickly settled down, leaving a layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar consisting of medium-sized bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of honeydew melon are present in the nose along with hints of mango and pine.
T: The taste follows the smell, starting off with flavors of melons and finishes with hints of tropical fruits (including mangos and pineapples), citrus and pine. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer had an interesting blend of flavors in the taste that were very well balanced, with further showcased its complexity.

Medium golden color, opaque, with a finger or two of white foam on top... Has a colorful melange of aromas and flavors, ranging from orange to melon to berry to grapefruit, along with a light undercurrent of pine... Fairly sweet and juicy - berry-like in that regard... Bitterness is very mild, though some bittering piles up as you drink through the beer... Smooth and soft - nice feel and body... 9/10/18 canning...

On tap at Brewskival 2018.

Pours a hazy yellow with fine head.

Smell is juicy and slightly sweet with notes of strawberries, pineapple and mango.

Taste is slightly earthy and grassy with nice, big notes of melon, strawberries and a robust but soft bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a very nice, drinkable IPA.

Honey color with a 4F head in a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Floral and fruit aroma- not very strong..

Medium body MF.

Citrus and earthy taste. Not very balanced. Finish: hoppy, slightly spicy.

I find that a lot of IPAs lately have good taste, but poor balance. Where are we going with this beer? No continuity. There should be some kind of continuity between the aroma , MF , taste and finish. This beer is similar to many others I have tasted in the past year which lack a distinct flavor profile and are all over the place. No continuity.

16-oz. can purchased at the brewery today, poured into a 20-oz mug. Required a stong pour to get a half finger sized white head that quickly retreats to a ring, with minimal spotty lacing.
Looks like hazy half orange half grapefruit juice. a little bit murky.
Smells of fresh piney hops and pinapple with faint sweet malt and a hint of sour yeast,
Taste is fresh, orange peel replaces the pineapple and the piney/resinous hops control the middle. Sweet malt at the end blends with the hop bitterness for a semi-dry finish.
Medium bodied with below average carbonation, there is a drop off in the middle of the mouthfeel leaving an astringent bite although the alcohol is barely perceptible and the malt comes though in the end.
Very fresh taste and smell, if it was not so murky and had a little more CO2 it would have got the A rating.

Canned, ummm, no date, thanks for nothing

Pours a decent foamy smaller head with not so great retention, a touch of lacing, super hazy lemony yellow tan color

Nose mild citrusy hop, a bit floral grassy as well, lemony and a little tangerine citrus, grapefruit juice, very little malt, pretty light in general

Taste mild citrus and fruit, a weird canned stone fruit and some tropical fruit I can't put my finger on, stone fruit with a mild citrus, tangerine note, bit herbal grassy too, and weird ester notes, also some weird phenol or something else I also can't put my finger on but it's unpleasant, weird mineral chalky thing maybe, mild bitterness, creamy toasty malt notes, generic fruity late, with a sticky semi sweet finish

Mouth is med bod, a bit of a soft creaminess, decent carbonation

Overall not that great IMO, def some things that need to improve and some weird off things in there. Was not a fan of this one. It could be on the older side, but I have no idea since there's no friggen date on the can!
