Can. Pours golden yellow with white head. Aroma is strong tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, little pine, little sweetness. Taste is mild, fruity hops, little pine notes. Hops stick around just for a bit, then fade into the background. I picture myself sitting on a beach drinking this... then drinking more of it. Very nice pale ale.

Ccb canned ipa. Loved their jai alai, canít wait to try this. Pours orange copper with white frothy head. Same great citrusy aroma, pine, grass, and tangerines. Lighter and a little more orangey than i expected. Light mouth feel, not well carbonated. A sweeter malty taste that isnít as dominant in jai alai. I too get a bit of a doughy taste. Not bad, just a little differe.

Poured into a pint glass; bubbly gold with a small airy head that sits atop for awhile.
Great nose of grapefruit and pine foreshadow the abundant hops.
Light body with high carbonation. Drinks hoppy, but with a sweet malty character. Very smooth with little bite on the finish.
Very drinkable IPA.

Pours a copper orange with a frothy white head. Aroma is massive. Huge citrus notes, lemon, orange, grapefruit, tangerine....with a slight pine under note. Sweet malty notes as well. More of a sweet lemon/orange on the taste. Slight pine is still there. Nice sweet maltiness too. Borderline bitter finish. Nice body, medium. Nice overall beer.

12oz can pours a hazy gold with an off white head. 2 months old and just tasted like malt and wheat. I would like to try this fresh.

The fresh hop aroma and flavor comes thru almost as if you just broke open a hop cone and took a big whiff of that sucka. (I love sniffing fresh hop cones!). Beautiful citrus flavors with well balanced malt profile make this supremely drinkable...loved it.

Can at home. Pour is hazy orange with a frothy white head and great lacing. Lemon rind, oranges, light pineapple, biscuit, doughy malt, and grass in the aroma. Taste is fresh squeezed orange and lemon juice, pineapples, biscuit malt, crackers, grass, and bread with a light bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Poundable stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can: Poured alight golden color ale with a super large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit hops with some tropical fruit is quiet enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by huge citrus, grapefruit and tropical fruit notes. Body is light with great carbonation. Very refreshing pale ale with great balance and avoids too much bitterness.
