3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home from alesela
slightly hazy burnished gold with cream tinged head passion fruit and orange pith on nose. Subtle malt to allow the juicy passion fruit and pink grapefruit of the hops to come through. Medium length finish with a gentle bitterness. Good to see an American brewer go a bit lower, though stil not quite session strength.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice fragrant nose or orange, peach, a bit of resin. Deep orange color with lace. Super hoppy flavor, grapefruit rind, very bitter, rather thin and unbalanced. The malt can’t keep up with the hops. Too bitter, like hop tea. Not very drinkable, really.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours golden apricot orange with a thin, white lacing. Smells like I’ve been rudely awoken by a bag of limes to the noggin in the middle of a pine forest at 6am, awesome. Smells like pine needles, early morning dew and fresh lime. Taste is light and very crisp, smooth citrus and a light piney aftertaste backed by a light toasted caramel malt. Great complementary bitterness makes the beer far too sessionable! Literally an ’All day’ IPA.

Bottle. Orange malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange light malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Body on the light side. Pretty good.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with tall, long lasting, foamy white head. Wonderful aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and bready malt. Body is full and tangy. Citrusy hops dominate the flavor with bready malt and ripe fruit provide balance. Finish is long and grapefruity. I could drink this IPA all day.

On tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn NY on 3rd July 2013. Clear amber with offwhite film and no lace. Yeasty hoppy aroma. Main taste in-mouth is malty and ciytric with grapefruit and tangerine hoppiness. A zesty citric finish ensues, with tangerine and gentle lemon rind. Zingy mouthfeel and medium body.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Drunk straight from the stubby! No need for a glass this is fucking awesome. Nose is tropical fruit and grapefruit dominant. Very fruit driven. Taste is more grassy and subtle with floral hops prominent. Bit of tropical fruit presence there as well. Subtle bitterness. Doesn't take longer than 10 mins to finish this beer. Super easy to drink one of (if not) the best session beers I've had!!
