Bright yellow with a large, khaki foam head.

Very bright citrus aromas of tangelo and lemon, with a little kick in the background of pine tar.

Crackery taste up front, with piney spice and earth. The citrus takes a back seat, and is mostly orange.

Light and crisp, a very refreshing IPA.

Good tropical fruit starts followed by an intense bitterness that lingers just the right amount of time. Good hoppy backbone - probably simcoe and citra hops. Surprisingly good. Had in Cleveland while on business from tap.

A well balanced and refreshing IPA. Fruit flavor balanced with citrusy pine and gentle bitterness. You can drink many of these.

Pours a bright, deep gold with two fingers of off-white head that maintains a solid collar with substantial lacing. Aroma is mostly bright, bitter citrus with a healthy dose of pine and hints of tropical fruit.

Taste is slightly less dynamic than the nose, but there is a nice duo of citrus and pine resin working in perfect harmony. A touch of dank grass. Big hop flavor with a medium bitterness. The carbonation is crisp and lively and is a perfect match for the medium-light body and drying finish. Leaves a pleasant trace of hop flavors on the palate.

It took me way too long to revisit this, and I regret that. My six pack was less than 3 weeks old, and the combination of hop flavor and drinkability was incredible. There will be a lot of this in the fridge all summer.

Subpar and overrated. I don't get what's above anything even slightly run of the mill about this.
