Light colored beer with nice aroma but zero head. It's a really nice sessionable beer. I'm not going to say it's "juicy" because I think that is just a ridiculous descriptor. Juicy. Come on. It's liquid of course it's juicy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice hazy orange/yellow color. Definite aroma of peaches and citrus. Expected a stronger hop flavor and bitterness but was pleasantly surprised. Very drinkable. Looking forward to the next can.

Can as a bonus in a trade. About a month after canning date. poured into a lagunitas jar glass. Aroma is a smack in the face of citrus and tropical hops, like orange juice. Pour is very hazy, very pale orange to yellow with a small white head. A moderate hop flavor that is similar to nose, maybe a bit muted, followed by a moderate bitterness, finishing thin and watery, kind of killing the overall experience. The mouthfeel gets a little better as you sip, but the bitterness always seems a bit too high when compared to the malt backbone and mouthfeel. I rarely say this these days, but this needs a touch more body to support the hops bitterness. My can says it is only 4.3%, not the 5.2 that is/was listed here, so that could have something to do with it as well. Not sure if it varies batch to batch or if it is a recipe change. overall an ok beer that smells way better than the drinking experience.

Can into a pint. Just a few days old. Pours a super hazy amber orange. Nose is peaches and mangos with just a hint of dank herbalness. Taste is peach juice and biscuits. Barely bitter and super juicy. A really impressive and highly drinkable APA.

Poured from a can dated 01/20/2015. Aroma is dominated by hops. Medium citrus with boatloads of stone fruit and lighter tropical fruit. Faint, pale malt note in the background. Pours a very, cloudy, pale, yellow straw color with a moderately sized, medium thick, white head that exhibits decent retention and nice lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet with moderate bitterness and faint malt notes. Moderate hop flavors of citrus, peach and pineapple, but not as vibrant as in the aroma. A little more malt and hops as it warms. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied and a but watery with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice very hoppy beer. I am usually the last person to want malt in my hoppy beers, but this one needs just a bit more malt character to add body and a bit of flavor.

Can. Golden pour with white head. Herbal and grassy hop aromas. Flavors are similar, although not as potent. Fresh but hoppier in aromas.

Can from Redstone Slightly hazy lemon straw color with a decent sized long lasting bone white head. Huge pine and citrus on the nose with just a touch of stone fruit. If there’s malt in the nose my smell is too distracted. The flavor does hold some crackery bready maltiness and a lot more of the pine and citrus hop flavor. Very smooth bitterness. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation. Very nice light flavorful brew!
