In the fucken can. Pours an orange appearance with a light tan head. Really nice, dank, spicy hoppy nose with some light contras. Fairly dry flavor. Medium bodied. Delicious, easy drinking, spicy hoppy, ganja flavor. Good brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Can from Bob’s.
A pleasant surprise. Fully-hopped APA with a new school profile (I thought there was some summit or something in there): tangerine and pineapple as expected from the Amarillo, but also grass, skunk piss, and onion. These latter flavors are in the background, though, and so the overall comes out delightful. Highly drinkable yet big, big hop flavor at 5.2% without the mineral bitterness of so many session IPAs. Well done and worth drinking by the six.
Addendum: after drinking by the six a couple of times, this is perhaps my favorite easy drinker of summer ’14. Good stuff; I feel like I’m under-rating slightly at 3.7 but I’m not quite sure where to give the bump. Maybe it deserves an 8 for aroma...?
Tap at Mio Posto
After bitching about their tap list just the other night, I was pleased this evening to see that their one "seasonal" tap was devoted to this. On tap, the orange and grapefruit is even more forward, if possible. Tasty.

Can, thanks Brian! Pours hazy golden, medium creamy off white had that dissipates slowly with great lacing. Aroma is quite dank, pine, cat piss, cut grass. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, nice and simple. Light body, not harsh. Good stuff

Can. Light orange pour with a slightly hoppy citrus aroma. Semi sweet orange flavor. A little hops. Really light drinking beer perfect for the summer time. Could have guessed that. Good stuff.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice light grain yellow with a sheet of white atop the ale and below the spotty lace. Smells of grapefruit, mangos, peaches, hints of caramel malt and some resin. Nice nose. Really nice nose. Flavor is full of hops - carrying weed and bitterness. The fruits kinda lie flat in the flavor when measured against the nose. The malts are reserved and refreshing with just a slight hint of wood and caramel. Body is unusual IMO, medium with a fine moderated carb gives this a creamy feel. Oddly, I’d like this on nitro probably. Nice beer with a slightly divergent nose/flavor profile.

Basically like drinking a bottle of delicious honey. Bitterness balances out the sweetness somewhat. A little under carbonated for my taste. Decent. Pair with biscuits.

(draught at brewery) clear gold, nice lacing, wispy white bubbles. Nose is crisp, german hops, mildly malty nose, cream, biscuit, light butter too. Taste is earthy hops, dry, crackers, light butter, very earthy dry finish.

On tap at fremont. Nice hoppy aroma and flavor, but light enough to drink like 10 in the summer. Really good
