Finally rating, on tap at brewery:
Mostly clear / light to moderate haze yellow gold body. Loose head that has some lacing. Aromas come at me with a vegetal to dank citrus bitter hop, but I start to discern a honey malt sweetness as my nose adjusts.

Taste is a bit of a surprise, as the honey malt joins orange blossoms to yield a nice, fruity opening that easily sits short of being as sweet as it sounds. Unfortunately, the bitter notes that opened the nose never take hold, and while there’s a balance to the beer with a mild bitter late finish, it needs more for my tastes.

Had a single draft at Pour Farm in New Bedford, MA for about eight dollars. My eleventh brew from these guys. This was good, it was just a bit flat. Keg may been there for a while?

Canned on: ?????

A - Extremely hazy light gold colored pour with dense, cresamy, bright white lacing surrounding the top and sticking to the glass.

S - Big citrus and peach aroma with a slight bit of acidity and pungent juiciness.

T - Peach, citrus, passion fruit, melon, and lime while finishing with a balanced, juicy bitterness.

M - Big medium body with prickly carbonation and dry on the back of the tongue.

O - I have the feeling this can has some age on it but impossible to tell since they don't date stamp their cans. Decent but not getting the same (97) "wow factor" that it's currently rated at.

From a 16oz can with a cryptic code stamp. Purchased at the Bevie in Winooski so there’s no telling how long it’s been there - I wasn’t paying proper attention, I guess. Served in a spiegelau IPA glass.

Pours a hazy lemonade-like pale yellow with two fingers of soft, soapy suds. Retention is reasonable, leaving whipped egg white-like cap and a tattered blanket of foamy lacing.

Nose is muted and I’m having trouble teasing out anything much: indeterminate citrus, sweet cereal. Frankly, I may be smelling my dishwasher detergent. If so, at least it smells pleasant.

Taste is balanced and presents itself right off the bat as a crackery APA. Tasting soda cracker, orange slices, cane sugar and lemon peel. Sweet but not sticky.

Feel is clean and quenching, medium-light bodied with zesty, soda-like carbonation. Drinks like an APA, too.

Overall, tasty, and I wish I had more. Definitely lands more in APA land than IPA land - or maybe I’ve just been drinking too many big, heavy DIPA’s. Also, and it took me half the glass to really pick up on it, there is a distinctly sugary, tooth-melting quality to it.
