On tap in a pint glass. The name says it all. This smells like a citrus air freshener; candied orange, tangerine, grapefruit. A blind smell might fool someone into thinking they had a glass of fresh citrus juice. The taste is as juicy as the aroma, with a bit of piney notes. Mouth is medium and juicy. A very solid "juicy" IPA, that will quench your thirst but disappoint if you're seeking a hoppy bitter punch.

On tap at Selma's, on to the beer:

Copper orange colored and topped with a fluffy head, which allows for great head retention above. The aroma is outstanding. It smells dank with fresh orange, grapefruit, and pine. Clean and juicy is the taste, the citrus combination continues with an orange and tangerine flavor mixed with pine. All this rides in a medium, smooth body that's a little creamy. Needless to say, this stuff is outstanding!

Poured a 12oz bottle into a snifter. Pours amber in color with a head that quickly dissipates. Smells very citrusy/tropical. Taste is very complex...sweet at first with medium carbonation followed by some bitterness. Drinking very easily and enjoyable...would drink this stuff all the time if it were available on the east coast. Glad I was able to try it out.

Beautiful khaki head, lovely clear honey amber color. Smells are of fresh Pine, grapefruit and orange zest. Perhaps some tangerine. Very citrus-y and piney...

For this simple beer the taste is very complex. This hop forward beer explodes in you mouth with a plethora of grapefruit, pine tar, orange zest, and crushed pineapple. The malt takes a backseat but delicately sweetens up the dry finish leaving that puckery juicy sensation that people love from this blockbuster of an IPA....yummy

"Profile - A juicy, citrus and grapefruit flavor profile. As if fresh Citra and Mosaic hops were squeezed straight into the bottle." Brewed in the style of an American IPA, available in 12 oz. bottled 6 packs and on regular draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a tulip glass.

(Appearance) Pours a creamy foam caramel-tan head over a mildly hazy copper-amber body with abundant flaked sediment and mild carbonation. Retention is above average and lacing is light and spotty. 4.25

(Smell) Bright hop notes of tropical fruit, clean, balanced citrus juice, grapefruit and robust fruity hops, atop a clean pale and lightly biscuity malt body with a mild sweetness. Potency is moderate. 4

(Taste) Flavorful, juicy hop flavors of tropical fruit, low-acid grapefruit, tangerine and mango come together for a rich, accessible and enjoyable hop flavor with a modest bitterness. Malt profile generates subtle biscuit malt tones atop a simple, clean pale malt body with a moderate sweetness. Very flavorful, highly drinkable. 4.25

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, smooth, lightly oily, medium dry. Carbonation is mild, generating a medium frothiness and a moderately crisp finish. Body is medium for the style, medium overall. Balance is nearly even sweet to hoppy bitter. Alcohol presence is light and there are no off characters. 4

(Overall) A very solid American IPA all around, "fresh squeezed" comes pretty close to nailing the impression I get in this beer- lots of rich tropical fruit subtleties and citrus tones without the sharp, biting acidity and pithy characters. Simple, straightforward pleasantries with a nice, approachable level of bitterness throughout. Quite a treat, and highly recommended. 4.25

Had all the good stuff stuff you'd expect and a bit of a silkyness to it. Drank it already or else I'd get more detaily about it. I read someone had said that it was not as good as Stone Ipa but I'd say to differ. I bet my Stone musta gotten a bit burnt or also the fact that I didn't wait to chill it a second and just cracked it open might have offset the flavors a bit. All in all this beer was better than Stone.

Appearance: The hue and tone suggest a beer that goes well with a meal that includes medium to high fat, protein, and spiciness.

Smell: Mandarin orange with a light must and delicate malt dancing in the background. Playful, but a little shy. Not as complex as some would suggest, but wholesome, playful, and will dance long and gracefully across your nasal sensors.

Taste: This was brewed by Elves, not Dwarfs. It is delicate mandarin-apricot with a hint of grapefruit and fig, but I don't taste any mango. I just ate a bite of real organic mango from my fridge, and this beer has no mango flavor. Those reviewers that taste mango have either forgotten what real mangoes taste like, or they are so happy to have met such a youthful, outgoing IPA that they are giddy and spinning. Like an open and airy jazz, every note is not taken- leaving room for other tastes to sing their songs too.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbs/sweetness, bitterness, and lower than average malt for this much flavor means that it can tango with heavies like pizza and burritos, waltz with salad, or groove with burgers. The soft, but not overly forward fruit is a little too sweet for Thai and Chinese with heavy sugar. By itself, it will enchant and ask for more until you spin sideways off the dance floor. It's got great balance, way better than yours.

Overall: Extremely worth $10.99 a sixer. Up there with Lagunitas Sucks in playfullness, though a bit less complex, and three steps less forward that Stone IPA in the boldness of its hops, it is far easier to approach and more compatible with other foods and situations than either of those.

Pours perfectly clear, amber orange colour. Faint whitish head with good lacing. Light carbonation.

Smells like pine, grapefruit, bready malt. Hop aroma is fresh, but not too intense.

Really well-balanced citrusy/minty/herbal hop flavour, underlaid by a noticeable malty sweetness.

Nice mouthfeel, perfect amount of body here. Highly drinkable, though just a little too sweet. Overall, a really excellent brew on draft or in bottles.
