Vibrant cloudy orange with a short-lived, creamy-looking white head that leaves thick lacing. Creamy orange aroma. Surprisingly watery tasting with watered-down creamy orange flavors coupled with a hint of toast and marmalade bitterness. Relatively full bodied with light fizzy carbonation. Tastes like a solid New England APA.

Pours an opaque orange with a finger of white foam that retains well (half pour from can). Head retention is good. Aroma is orange marmalade, papaya, grapefruit and peanuty malts. Aroma is sweet, with a lot of tropical fruit residual sugar ringing out in each whiff. The orange marmalade cools down a little and settles into more of a fleshy, ripe orange aroma as the beer warms. Flavor profile is orange, tangerine, papaya and grapefruit with thin peanuty malts behind it. There is a kiss of yeast, but it doesn't make much of an impression. Hop notes are light and compact. Mouth feel is fuzzy and fizzily that edges up to a pillowy-soft texture, but breaks apart just prior. Consistency is medium. Overall, a very light IPA that puts citrus and tropical fruits first with a controlled approach.

Served in a 15.5oz Spiegalau tulip from a 16oz can.

Pours like a neipa, hazy pineapple juice with a nice white head. Tropical , bright fruits dominate the aroma. Pineapple, tangerine, some ripe papaya. Really juicy taste. Sweet orange, pineapple, lemon zest, and a nice , if weak, grapefruit bitterness in the back. Mouthfeel is a highlight. A surprisingly smooth medium+ body is balanced against a lively brightness. It's a fantastic beer, esp in cold weather

2 month old can

Pours hazy orange, white head, great two finger head retention, sticky lacing.

Aromas of sweet oranges, tangerines, sweet pineapple and candied tropical fruits.

Taste follows the nose although is not that sweet. There are some melon, lime and red grapefruit notes too. Lots of flavour for such low abv.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy for a 5,7% beer, smooth and medium bodied.

Great beer.

Pours a hazy peach like you'd probably expect from this beer/style/brewery with a smallish head that leaves a ring for the duration. Nose is certainly orange along with some powdered sugar and maybe a little pineapple hiding in the back. Taste is not nearly as good. The predominant flavor is grapefruit pith, not the fruit or zest. With this style, there isn't really much of a malt backbone, so there isn't much else going on beside pith...maybe a touch of that powdered sugar and a bit of dankness. As it warms, an off flavor starts to come through, especially in the finish. Not juicy, which was really surprising. Not bad, but disappointing considering the hype. Won't purchase again considering the sky high price tag.

L- The beer pours and opaque well....orange. The head is 2 fingers of slightly off white foam. As the head recedes the lace clings to the sides in great quantity.
S- The nose is a mix of orange and tangerine which becomes evident the moment the can is popped.
T- On the palate the beer is less sweet than the nose implies. Overall I'd say the beer leans just slightly to the bitter pithy side. Orange and tangerine flavors here are outshone by the pith, but makes the beer quite drinkable.
F- Mouthfeel overall is a solid medium. Carbonation after the initial pour is light.
O- A nicely drinkable single IPA at a somewhat sessionable 5.7%. Packs more than enough flavor to satisfy. Recommended.

From can picked up at Aslin the day before.

Beautiful orange yellow opaque color with good bit of foam head upon aggressive pour. Juicy and tropical aroma burst from the glass. Solid juicy flavors as well with a medium mouthfeel (which is good for a pale ale). This packs a very good amount of flavor into such a light (5.7% abv) pale ale.

Posted a cloudy yellow-orange body with minimal head and no lace down the glass. Aroma has minimal sweetness with an earthy hoppiness to it. The beer has a sharp acidity to it in a light, juicy body, mix of citric and even lemon/orange sharpness, with a pineapple juice (almost tropical fruit) sweetness and sharp/sweet finish.
