3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
APPEARANCE- light amber with a golden hue, head pours perfectly white and laces nicely.
NOSE- Light aroma of fruity hop. just the right amount.
FLAVOR- strongly resinous flavors abound, but do not overpower my tastebuds. Enough fruitiness in the hop to keep it light.
NOTES- really well balanced ipa.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours bright, clear orange with a large and dense beige head. Very mild nose sweet and candyish with raw hap/vegetal undertones. Taste bone-dry with a little orangey-crystal flitting in the background, not particularly juicy but with mild resin, chewy medium caramel, and earth and soap. Does remind of the IPAs of a decade ago, though with only medium bitterness and slightly oilier (no brutality offered here). Very smooth fullish body, hop aromatics are dead by this point but their beautiful oils remain (esepcially orange, tangerine, very light pineapple). Clean and palate cleansing with no apparent alcohol, very pleasant if a little bland, a great choice for a summer on the pier or trail. Very nice. [2015.12.27: 3.7]

Smells of pineapple mango pine resin for the nice malt almost caramel backdrop. It’s got a perfect gold amber color to it. Taste flood your mouth tropical fruits and a strong pine resin finish nice malt backbone to smooth out all the hops. Nice carbonation perfect for this beer. Baxter’s always making good stuff keep up the good work.
