THIS BREW SMELLS SO GOOD I WISH IT WAS IN SOLID FORM SO I COULD EAT IT. TASTE LIKE SUGAR TOPPED CARMELIZED GRAPEFRUITS , APRICOTS AND A HEALTHY PORTION OF BITTER HOPS.

12 oz bottle from Capones. Pours a thick mostly clear orange body underneath an average to slightly large white frothy head. Ok once again I am picking up a good amount of soapiness in the aroma, it must be something I am sensitive too since I hardly ever see anyone else noticing this. Besides that I am getting lots of citrus rind, caramel, grains, bread, floral hops and a slight touch of sweetness. The body is fuller and creamy with stronger carbonation and a good bitter bite in the end. The flavor has no trace of the soapiness I was detecting in the aroma and therefore so much more enjoyable. Notes grapefruit rinds, citrus fruits, dry bread, floral notes, and more grains. This one is well done and much better then the 3.42 score that it is rated at.

Intriguing flowery aroma, from a light copper, well foamed beer. Some notes of malt in flavor, but mainly dominated by flowery aromatic hops.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. The color is a cloudy deep orange with a finger of white foamy head and some nice lacing. The smell is lemony with a hint orange peel. A bit like a wet sponge with a hint of tangerine throw in as well. The sweetness is pretty sugary as well. The taste is a bit citrusy but has a wash of dank flavor in the first sip. The second sip brings on some bitter flavor that accompanies the tangerine and orange flavor. Tangy and bitter almost at the same time. The tonuge is left with a mild, bitter aftertaste The feel is refreshing in a hoppy way. The bite of this beer does take a bit to get used to. Going down well, this beer just slides down leaving only a mild bitterness. Not a bad IPA.

POurs orange with thin white head. Nose is huge sweet citrus, sweet sugar coated grapefruit and some toasty malt. Flavor is oranges, bitter lemon and grapefruit rinds. Mild malt character. Slightly thin. Very enjoyable and easy to drink.

Bottle shared by JCB. Pours dark gold with a white head. Wonder if this is a bit past its prime. Hops had a bit of a garlicky characteristic. Spicy citrus. Not bad, but not what I had hoped.

On tap at varga bar. Solid gold pour with nice white head. Amazing orange and grapefruit with a vanilla perfume underrtone. Vanilla carries into a mild sweetness then a very sharp bitterness. Almost tastes like a double and the lcohol is hidden well. Solid IPA.

Thanks to OSCF for sharing this with the Carolina Crew. A nice gold pour with an appealing, sticky looking head. Lots of malt present in the nose, along with clean citrus aromas. The body was moderate. I found that the flavor, however, was a bit of a disappointment, with blandly chewy malts seeming to obscure the hop-liciousness.

Bottle. Pours a golden amber with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is pine hops, citrus hops, with a bit of citrus and other tropical fruit thrown in. Taste is more subtle, with floral and citrus notes in the beginning and a strong (but not distracting) hop bitterness at the end. Surprisingly balanced, and very enjoyable.

Thanks oldstylecubsfan. Pours a translucent pale gold with a one finger offwhite head. The nose is very pungent and hoppy, citrusy, mango, grapefruit rind. Flavor is less pronounced and delicate, has a citrus rind bitterness, sweet, lacks carbonation.
