Pours amber to copper in color with a medium sized head. Aroma of grapefruit and other citrus fruits, on the sweeter side of citrus.

The flavor, much like it's aroma, is full of orange, grapefruit, and citrus notes, and again is on the sweeter side of citrus. It's flavorful, refreshing, and delicious. Hops are present, as well as some melon notes, but I would say orange is the dominant king of this beer's flavor profile.

Nice and medium-bodied, perfectly carbonated. Tasty, and highly recommended by me.

This is pretty bad. Mostly crystal malt and none of the interesting hops or fruit. Old can perhaps? Got it from Heinens as a single - figured it would be.fresh.

12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a honey-orange hue, with a 1.5 finger head quickly rising and disipating to leave mild lacing. Bright, citrusy nose with notes of orange and lime. The palate opens up with much deeper fruit notes, yielding kiwi, lemon, lime, and tangerine orange, with just a hint of hops and carbonation on the backend. Bright, crisp mouthfeel matches the beer well. Overall a solid bright take on the pale ale style. Perhaps a bit more watery than I would like, but the depth of the fruit flavor redeems much of that flaw.

This is #2 out 4 in the series. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours golden with nice clarity and transparency; fluffy white head that fades quickly leaving nice retention and okay lacing. The aromas have a nice mixture of citrus and tropical notes. Lots of melon and orange. Some bready malts in the mix, but the sweet fruits shine. The flavors seem to follow the nose perfectly. It tastes just like it smells. More melon along with some watermelon notes. Hints of lime as well. Some subtle hints of pine as well. Slightly earthy. Solid bitterness, but not over the top. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice. It's on the lighter side of medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's very smooth and very easy to drink.

This is a solid IPA. Very refreshing and quaffable. Good stuff.
