look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a pint can into a pint glass. One fingered white head, some lacing. Apricot colored body, semi-opaque. Nice tangerine aroma. First sip has a citrus, piney with a good hops finish. Tangy mouthfeel.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Opaque and slightly hazed body appearance, mostly opaque than cloudy and certainly nowhere near turbid. Deep pale orange mostly hinting to yellow, with a head that is fluffy bright white and fine. Head makes an easy three fingers with good amounts of lacing. Solid looking IPA.

Real nice aroma. Soft hop like aromatics, nearly like a pillow with tropical notes of fruit guava and mango. Hits some spicy herbal qualities that reach a nice sweetness as well.

Real simple solid palate. Juiced body, with just enough malt backbone to get a solid supportive feel and structure. Nice tropical light tones of soft mango and slushy fruit. Chewy texture somewhat but manages to lighten up in tea orange flavor and some powdery senses. Finish nice soft herbal bitterness continuing a little bit of sweetness hinted on the nose.

Not bad, a good solid hazy go to IPA it feels like.

HAZY, indeed! Pale, cloudy gold with a substantial bright white fluffy head. The nose is ultra-citrus, and fairly explodes from the can when you pop the top. Citra assault is full on--lively pineapple and grapefruit juiciness from first sip to last. A really enjoyable NE juicebomb--quenches for days!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pint can poured in to a nonic glass. Dated 02/11/20

Look- Hazy, almost murky, golden straw color, nice bright white head that slowly recedes to a small cap of foam, ample sticky lacing. Light carbonation streaming as it sits.

Smell- Citrus (orange/tangerine, grapefruit and lemon/lime) heavy tropical fruits (pineapple and mango), stone fruit (peach/apricot), a bit of melon, biscuit malt, slight pine and floral/herbal notes.

Taste- Big citrus, pineapple, juicy stone fruit and melon, tropical fruit, light malt, minimal pine evident.

Feel- Medium bodied, on the sweeter and softer side with a very light bitter finish, well balanced. Moderate/light carbonation on the tongue.

O- A wonderful IPA, the lower ABV makes it really easy drinking too. A definite must try.
