Mostly clear, orange beer with a fluffy off white head. Nice bands of lacing left behind. Tons of fruit in the nose with oranges and grapefruit. There is a moderate sweetness with a lot of orange flavor. Toward the end a caramel malt comes out and the sip finishes with a nice bitterness. This is a really tasty IPA.

Looks and smells good.

Tastes ok on the front end, but the back end tastes like hydrogen peroxide.

Love Finback, but gotta pass on this offering.

Very nice IPA. Appearance is a little pale, but it rates high on all other aspects. Had it on draft in a pint glass. Hops are clearly present, but not overdone. Worth $6.50 for a pint.

16 oz can. Pours deep apricot orange color with two finger white head, great retention with scattered lacing. Ripe tropical fruit aroma. Taste is tropical fruity, on the sweet side up front, finally gives way to plenty earthy piney hops. Nice lasting bitterness follows the semi dry finish. Medium soft feel. Overall very tasty sweet IPA.
