A thanks to the incredible woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a slightly hazy orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, tropical fruits. Taste has plenty of oranges, tangerines, light to moderate bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

Notes via stream of consciousness: I added this beer to the BA database as a New England style IPA because it's labeled as a "hazy IPA", but it's also brewed with orange blossom honey which would qualify it as a "fruit and field" beer. I went with the NE IPA style as it seemed the most fitting. Onward... it's poured a cloudy dark orange colored body beneath a finger-thick head of white foam. The aroma smells like orange, and maybe my brain is tricking me, but honey as well. It's sweetish and citrusy. On to the flavor... well there's no surprise here, it tastes like a sweet orange. It's juicy and refreshing. The orange, or tangerine if you want to call it that, is the main note but there's also a little bit of peach, and some subtle lemon and pineapple. Now that it's warmed I'm also getting an odd note of coconut in the aroma. It's not bad, in fact it's quite intriguing, but it's certainly not expected. I initially thought that it might be too sweet but it's not working out that way. There's enough of a light acidity to it that along with the hop bitterness that's there it finishes dry. The citrus lingers nicely as well, and in just a few seconds you should be ready for another sip. In the mouth it's medium bodied and gently crisp then smooth as it warms. All in all this is excellent. It's bright and lively, and very tropical. I could drink this all summer long; and maybe the best part about that is that $1.50 from every can goes to local charities. It's an expensive beer but knowing that that much money is going to charity makes me feel like I'm paying less.
