3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells dank and orangey. Pours an orange-tinted blonde color with a thin, quickly-diminishing head. Very smooth bitterness up front, but leaves an oily hop bitterness on the finish. Tastes like a dank, west-coast IPA. It’s ok.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ok IPA. Great aroma and beautiful amber pour with a nice white head. Flavor is hoppy and aftertaste is a bit too bitter and alcoholic.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can poured into a standard pint glass. Pours a hazy orange with a one finger fluffy white head that has great retention and leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, orange, tangerine, wheat, and caramel malt. Pine and caramel malt come on strong up front with tangerine, grapefruit, wheat, and white bread backing it. Great long bitter, dry finish of caramel malt, citrus and pine. Medium to light body, smooth somewhat creamy texture, lively carbonation. What I like about this is very hoppy, but it isn’t over hopped. Excellent hop balance. Very fresh and crisp. I may have found a new go-to IPA for this summer!

16oz can shared by Dan P. Pours a hazy orange color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of sweet citrus fruit, grapefruit zest, and caramel malt. Taste is much the same. Bitter citrus skins, grapefruit rind, and sweet caramel malt.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz can from Crossroads. Poured a cloudy nectar orange body under a dense foamy light beige head. Aroma of oranges, potpourri, tea bagsand some baby aspirin. Chalky medium body with a drier finish and softer to average carbonation. Flavor is citrus rind, old oranges, wet toast, tea, brown bread. Not great but not bad. Straight out of the can would probably make this even better.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fr0m the pint-sized can this p0ured a hazy light amber b0dy with a tw0-fingered ecru head. The ar0ma had s0me bready malt with a d0ll0p 0f caramel c0vered by mild citrus and earthy scents. The taste was h0ppier, tart 0ranges and tangerines giving a sustained bitterness. The bread and caramel flav0rs balanced it all 0ut, perhaps a tad t00 much f0r an IPA. N0t a bad drink and w0rth repeating, which is g00d, since I have three m0re cans.
