Poured from a can. Pours a cloudy deep orange - amber with a thin head of white foam. Light carbonation with some lacing. Aroma of semi-sweet citrus and light hops. Light syrupy body. Very smooth full mouth feel. Just a hint of bitterness lingers following a malty finish. Very refreshing. Solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty good IPA but considering CCB’s hype I was hoping for more. Pours from a can into tulip with 2 finger white head. Somewhat cloudy Amber appearance. Good aroma when the can opens but it doesn’t last through the whole glass. Slightly sweet? when it first hits the tongue which I wasn’t expecting. Pretty good IPA but not world class.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours a dark orange color with an off-white head. The aroma blends buttery sweet malts, pine, grapefruit, spruce tips, and orange peel. The beer’s flavor is mildly sweet, but there’s a bit more bitterness. The pine, grapefruit, and citrus rind also appear in flavor. The beer has a slick texture, but the mile carbonation keeps the beer from being too heavy on the palate.

Keg @ Hæmoriden. Hazy golden with a medium sized off white head with good retention and lace. Caramel, light cheese, apricot, mandarin, green plants, honey, sugar. Malty. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and light/medium bitter. Malty and sweet for the style and not that punchy on flavour.

On tap at TCBW 2016. Clear amber with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of tropicsl fruits, pine, caramel and malt. Medium sweet with hoppy flavours and a decent bitterness. Quite tasty, but a bit too much on the sweet side for my taste.
