Bottle shared at Scopey’s 5000th rate. Can cheers to Leighton. Pours clear orange with a thick white head. Nose is tangy oranges, lemond rind and mango and a touch of spice. Very citric. Quite biscuity base with orange rind, tangy mandarin and lime juice. Solid balance to this. Decent

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can. Orange color, white foam with superb lacing. Nose is with mixed berries, earthy grains, herbal hops. Taste like and American IPA. Flavor of caramel and biscuit malts, lightly toasted grains. Hops flavor is very pleasing to the palate. Not overly bitter, well balanced. A little too high of an ABV, but goes down like a session ale. (3966)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber with a fairly thick pale buff head that leaves some good lacing. Hoppy aroma has an undertone of pear and orange. Hops dominate the flavor, which has just a snip of bitterness and good malty, woody, citrus and apple tones. Texture is fairly firm and fizzy so it goes down nicely. If not an outstanding IPA, certainly a good one.

Poured a Orange color from the can with aromas of light malt some pine, a decent amount of citrus and some light caramel. Flavors were very citrus forward not over lowing just enough with some light bitterness in the aftertaste. Could easily be an everyday drinker.
