355ml bottle. Somewhere between hazy and clear, amber and gold. Soapy, whipped foam on top. Grassy, resinous hop aroma plus caramel maltiness. Tangy orange, hop bitterness. Nice tropical linger. Not a stand-out in any category, but solid stuff all round.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 12oz. An unclear, orange beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Citrus peel and some pine cones and a generic fruityness in the aroma, rather boring and uninteresting. Lacking on most things. That goes for the flavor too, where thereís also some caramel hints and bitterness. Quite dry on the palate, medium body. A superbly boring beer. 130806

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle bought near Detroit. A little haze in the coppery beer. A beige one finger head lasts. I smell tangerine fruit and caramel. It is a sweet aroma. The flavor offers more bite and bitterness but it is not over powering. Somehow organic IPAs have a distinctive flavor and this one is no different and that is not really a plus. I taste some bright spices that come late and bread is noted. Hops are floral and come in slightly behind the malts in balance. This is pretty tasty.
