4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The pour smells just like a freshly squeezed orange, zest and all. It has an orange hue, with a wispy head that leaves ring lacing down the glass. The flavors are of immense orange and pineapple, light zest and rind included... very authentic. The hops are indicative of the zest/peel finish of the brew. Alcohol is hidden so well, a detective may not find it. Perfectly integrated in the mouth, I never expected this to be so good. A perfect substantive body with juicy complexity that doesn’t overtake any aspect of the pull. Extremely tasty and thoroughly enjoyed!!

1/6/2014. On tap. Pours golden with a white head. Much lighter than your regular IPA. Aromas are piney with caramel, fresh hops and tropical fruit. Very nice balance and the citrus and hops are nicely defined.

12/24/13. 12oz bottle from the Milan Hy Vee. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Juicy, fruity hop aroma, tropical fruits and quite dank. The flavor shows all of that as well, but with a pale maltiness that comes across a touch sweet for me. Still tasty, though.

This is a really interesting IPA. Very big citrus notes. Strong pineapple. Starting to really enjoy the Galaxy hop but i think i like it in a heavier beer.

Bottle shared by drowland at xmas, pours a clear gold with a thin head, the aroma has a ton of grapefruit and citrus, really light and enjoyable, the flavor is much of the same with a ton of tropical fruit on the front end with a really citrus finish, kind of like sucks with less malt if that’s even possible, smooth mouthfeeel, nice.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour. Bright yellow with a thin white head. Big aroma of citrus and pineapple - the best part of this beer. Taste is hoppy with a light bitterness that lingers through the finish like grapefruit. Some sweetness but mostly gently bitter. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance is light golden, cloudy, and has a medium white cap that dissipated quickly. Aroma is intense citrus and grass, more so orange, apricot, and lemongrass. Taste is sweet malt and citrus that gives way to an intense hop bite and grapefruit like tartness. Mouthfeel is light, well carbonated, and very dry. Finishes with a lingering bitterness and distinct citrus orange/grapefruit taste and acidic tartness
