Pour a thinner orange juice with a thin, creamy white head.
A big citrus hop smell. Slight spice and malt.
A wonderful blend of hops with citrus jumping out. Slight pepper and spice.
Soft mouthfeel.
A good one.

Sweet, tropical and citrus aromatics on this pale ale! Taste follows well with a light piney and dank bite. It has good feel for a pale ale and decent character...Good!

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on April 11, 2019. A hybrid East/West coast style pale showcases Citra, Centennial, Simcoe and Warrior hops. Notes of clementine and blackberry.

Poured from 16 oz can dated 5/8/2017

A: Hazy orange juice with one finger dense white head. Lasting retention and moderate lacing.

S: Wonderful fruity aroma with oranges, pineapple, mango, and grapefruit. Subtle cracker malts.

T: Flavors follow suit with nice fruits with a complentary malt backbone. Bursts of flavor that makes you think DIPA but in an APA ABV.

M: Medium body with average carbonation. Soft and creamy texture that leads to a highly drinkable APA.

O: Another excellent brew from Bearded Iris. Very well done.

Poured into an IPA glass. A hazy golden color with a generous and resilient rocky white head. Great lacing in the glass. Bright fruity aromas with berries, tangerine, mango, pineapple, and faint crackery malt. The taste follows closely with the full compliment of flavors balanced with a sturdy dry crackery malt backbone. Silky smooth feel. A great full-flavored APA.

Poured from a 16 oz can (canned 02/27/2017) into a Veil Brewing House glass.

Appear: nice golden haze had a nice bit of foamy pillowy head.

Nose: nice pop of citrus juice when I cracked the can. big citrus notes on a deeper smell. We're talking tangerine orange probably cara cara maybe some clementine. there's also berry notes. nice biscuity smell.

Taste: Flavors aren't quite as good as the nose. Definitely the citus and there's piney note that comes in to mix with biscuit malt taste I get. Flavors aren't huge at all.

Mouth: Wow!! so soft and fluffy. I love it. medium feel so soft

Over: Wow!! Bearded Iris is killing it. I can't believe how good every single beer I've had from them has been. Just super yummy. delicious.

Even more big thanks to Buck89 who without knowing me, knew me. This beer/brewery rocks!

Pours orange tinged straw color with a thick, white, two fingers of lathery foam that finally kicked back to island and ring leaving some bas relief of the lace variety. Nice.

Full aroma that is well blended, hard to break down. I get orange, peach, mango, grapefruit, with the lightest crackery sweet backing it, but truth told it is its own blended bouquet that is astoundingly sweet and alluring.

Ah, here come the Warrior hops, really righteous bitter backing, clean and strong, combines perfectly with the other components identified in the aroma. They play very well together. This pale ale thinks it's a IIPA, and yet it has a delicate touch. Quite delicious.

Very light in mouth, and despite the copious amounts of hops in this baby it clears well, so it is refreshing in the way a pale ale needs to be. Still, full bodied for style. Med. carb, and killer finish.

I'm a Bearded Iris believer! Was hesitant after Red Handed, but these subseqent three, Homestyle, Scatterbrain, and this one, the best of the 3 for my money, have been clean as a whistle and delicious

Don't let the modest alcohol percentage in this ale fool you. It's a massive hop bomb that could put to shame most of the contemporary IPA at any alcohol content. The Bearded Iris team must have had a schizophrenia moment when putting together this east coast pale ale but with their minds on west coast IPA.

Turbid and almost chunky at first sight, the beer seems to carry extra pulp. Goldenrod in color, the beer's frothy eggshell froth creates a creamy meringue with the aormas of key lime pie, sherbet, geranium and the peels of every fruit found in hawaiian punch. Honey, pastry and light caramel splash the tongue with a host of malt, grain and millet character.

The ale simply blooms on the middle palate, reducing its maltiness to a sweetness that seems natural to vine and branch ripe fruit. Citrusy with white grapefruit, lime, tangerine and a hint of lemon, the ale is much more aromatic and flavorful than tangy or tart. Bold tropical flavors bring the essence of pineapple, kiwi, gooseberry, passionfruit and papaya. Stone fruit and a host of botanical herbs trend grassy, chivy and dark with a kiss of ribes.

Medium bodied, the beer's creamy grain flavor promotes a fuller palate, but the hop bitterness and resinous drying power suggests something lighter and crisper. Bitter with muddled pine needles and fresh grass clippings, this pale ale won't back down from any IPA as it trails equally as long with citrus and tropical peel and gripping yet smooth bitterness.
