3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Clouded amber with a short, frothy white head. Strong citrus fruit, floral hops and earthy hops. Taste brings lots of orange out (candied orange, orange juice and orange peel) along with floral hops, sweet malt, orange creamsicle, light caramel and hops oils. Body is medium with a soft, creamy, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more orange notes, orange creamsicle, sweet malt, candied citrus and floral hops.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.5 A: Murky dark yellow brown color. Just one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and a decent amount of lacing is left.
4.0 S: Supremely floral and citrusy. Papaya leads the way followed by mango and orange. Bready yeastiness, mild neutral malt sweetness, and just the slightest touch of caramel.
3.5 T: Taste is like the nose. Floral and citrus hops with the fruits mentioned above. Lots of yeastiness, mild neutral maltiness, mild bitterness, and a touch of caramel.
3.5 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy with chewiness from the yeast.
3.5 D: Tasty, well rounded IPA. Lots of yeast, but it isn’t too distracting.
Serving type: can

24th September 2012
Very hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish and airy with mild carbonation. Fresh orange hops, little pith and marmalade. Touch of grapefruit. Mild malt cream underneath. Finishes soft with mild bitterness. Just a really nice fresh IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice hazy orange pour with a solid, lingering off-white head. Aroma of honey, orange rind and resin. Really nice flavor. The way that the honey-like malt sweetness/resin balance out early on is really well done. A nice clean citrus finish follows. Tasty, very drinkable IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2013 5/24/13 update - Found this locally at Otto’s in pint cans. Still good, nicely aromatic. My recall likes the tap version slightly better.
4/19/13 on tap @ Balzac - Reddish amber, slightly cloudy, pillowy head. Aromas of grapefruit and orange citrus, along with baked bread maltiness. Mouthfeel has some real substance from the malt wrapped in a well balanced citrusy hop cloak. Very drinkable, satisfying and somewhat unique profile.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can at Wildfire Beer Dinner. Pours a hazy deep orangey-straw color with a medium white head, decent retention and lacing. Aroma is citrusy hops and some malt. Mouth is medium-bodied, decent balance of malt and hops, but not as adventurous in the hoppy side as I like in my IPAs. Still, with a long bitter finish and no real character flaws, it is certainly drinkable.
