On Tap at Kyatchi Mpls.. it pours a dark golden color with a white head. Smell and taste was malt forward with orange peel and citrus hops in the background. More malty and fruity with orange rind than hoppy.

Copper, light haze, half inch head.
Hoppy citrus peel on the nose.
Rich and creamy, medium to full bodied, hop and citrus peel.
Overall, decently smooth IPA.

Poured from A 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a semi clear Amber color with a medium-sized white head. The aroma is sweet fruit and malt. The taste matches the nose.

12oz bottle (or was it 33cl?) for $5.99. Orange color. Aroma is sweet oranges, hints of bread. Bready flavor with notes of orange. Not much hoppiness to speak of so IPA might be a stretch but a decent beer.

Muted copper and a full, soap bubble head that falls to a thin layer in a minute.
Peach, orange, butterscotch on the nose.
Butterscotch is right - sweeter on the palate than expected. Some tangerine, and the pitch right along with it. Finish is bitter resin and pine needles, lingering.
A two dimensional IPA, two sweet for my liking, but some may enjoy the tangerine/orange notes.

Clear amber, one finger head.

Smells of banana, citrus, cloves, caramel, bread, apples.

Very grassy taste. slight bitterness. Bread, mostly. Apples, caramel.

Smooth, no carbonation and light body.

Eh. I mean, the smell is terrific, very rich, but the taste doesn't really follow through. And the mouthfeel really isn't all that great either. Still enjoyable though.
