Can to tulip.
The appearance had a woody orange color with a subtle transparency about it. A small white foamy head sat on top and slid off nicely to leave some messy lace.
The aroma had some white pepper, black pepper/cracked peppercorn, grassy hops, Belgian cracker sweetness, subtle bubblegum, lemon juice, mango and some sweet woody notes in the background.
The flavor leaned slightly towards the sweet side with a decent peppercorn spiciness running in for a subtle blend. Sticky earthy sweet side effects try to add a touch of strength to it. Mild aftertaste of bubblegum, peppercorn, mango and grassiness.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Good carbonation and plenty of smoothness along my tongue. Finishes crisp with an eloquent earthy spicy peppercorn to lemon juiciness.
Overall, remember those white IPA's that were never truly classified as their own style, yeah, I'd think this would definitely be in that category if it ever existed. Giving it that "4" in this department due to enjoyability.

Can from Bantam Market.

A hazy orange with a dense white head with good retention and lacing this looks good. The nose is soft and fruity with melon, passionfruit, peach,a little sulfur. Straw too. The palate opens mildly bitter with quite a bit of fruit, there's peach, passionfruit, a little honey. Not super fruity, though. Drying, a little messy on the finish. Highly carbonated. Decent.

Nice hazy golden brown color.
Slightly fruity smell on the nose.
A very light citrus taste that stays mellow throughout.
It lacks the bitter hop bite of most IPA's but it is very Refreshing and great to sip while sitting on the porch in the summer.
