A: Pours a hazy golden orange in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and some orange + amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the surface of the beer with a couple of small slightly thicker patches and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts with some light aromas of pine hops and some citrus/orange hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of caramel malts without a lot of sweetness along with some moderate flavors of citrus/orange hops (sort of a mandarin orange flavor). There are some lighter notes of pine and herbal hops as well. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which fade pretty quickly.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp and smooth.

O: Probably closer to the IPA end of APAs, there is a little more bitterness and hop flavor than I expected for the style. Enjoyable and pretty easy to drink but nothing about the beer really stands out. Slightly strange how the citrus/orange have a slightly syrupy sweet taste.

Pours a cloudy, golden/orange color. 2/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, floral hops, slight sweet malt, slight alcohol, and a hint of pale malt. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of floral hops, hops, hint of earthy malt, slight sweet malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma, and decent blend.

Can poured into pint.

Three finger off white head; mild carbonation, straw gold body.

Smells: grapefruit, pine, and resin.

Taste: pine, hop, grapefruit, and a nice bitter finish is at the end.

Mouthfeel: superb

Overall: this is an excellent beer that showcases dry hopping. I do not think I would commit to a six pack though.
