Pours honey in color with a good sized head. Good retention and lace. Great nose of sweet malt with big pine and grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor with a cereal/grainy mid-palate. Medium body, average carbonation, dry-creamy texture, and a hoppy, oily, dry-bitter finish.

DesertDevil (456) - Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2013
12-oz. can. Nice nose of very sweet orange and a bunch of typical hop notes - alfalfa, basil, and pine. Pours an amber orange with not much head. Orange and grapefruit are the first horses out of the gate for the flavor before a piney, herbal bitterness charges to the forefront. Very crisp, light palate with a dry, grassy finish. A good summertime IPA - refreshing while pleasantly bitter.

ericdevin (594) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 9, 2013
Can from 16 Tons, Eugene. Iíve also had the bottle and draft, wanted to make sure that canning wasnít taking anything away form the beer. Not indeed; this is a lovely beer. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange, aroma is very floral. Body is medium, very lively, finish a bit on the abrupt side. Not really much bitterness, perhaps even a bit of sweetness. Very drinkable, especially for the IBUs and ABV.
