12 ounce thanks to klingea1. Nice fruity hoppy aroma. Taste is malty - despite very orange body - and peach. Hops are present. Unique twist on the IPA with that peach/fruit taste. This is very nice and I could easily go for more.

Orangish yellow pour with thick white head. Hoppy, citrus aroma. Lots of tangerine, grapefruit in the flavor with a bit of caramel and otherwise nutty malt. Nice Carbonation. Definitely drinkable. Definitely a winner from Short’s.

Bottle thanks to manny57! Slightly hazy orange pour, plenty of carbonation and a good hoppy marmalade aroma. Flavor is something else, vibrant oranges, hops, very sweet grapefruit and finsihes with a nice hoppy dry bite. Extremely unique and tasty, I’ll be adding this one to my permanent want list.

12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Lemony, minty subtle hop aroma. Pours in a darkened gold, pale amber with a foamy whitish head. Flavors are nicely balanced lemon, mint, and light herbal hop flavor that gets a little piney. Balancing sugars and nice complexity overall. Fresh and flavorful. A nice and decent drinking for the style. Maybe a touch sweet, but otherwise, very enjoyable.

Nice amber color. Beautiful floral hops aroma. Taste is very leafy, pine, and hops. The aroma is actually better then the taste. Finish is clean and refreshing.

Bottle shared by Daknole – thanks Dak! Pours cloudy amber with a thin off-white head. The nose is musty weed, citrus and malt. The taste is hop oils, citrus, caramel and tart grapefruit. Interesting brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brownish amber color. Decent foamy head with some very nice sticky lacing left behind.
Aroma has a mild sweet & slightly fruity note to it. Flavor is largely just a big blast of bitterness from the hops.
Carbonation seems right one, but the powerful bitterness take away a bit form the mouthfeel and overall drinkability.
Glad I tried it, but not likely to seek this one out again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle generously shared by Dak...thanks bud!!! Golden tangerine pour with a 1/4 inch white head. Musty, dirty, and dry with spice, pepper, and grapefruit. Lots of evergreen and pine also. Medium mouthfeel. Unique and interesting but not great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy orange-amber with a moderate white head. Faintly citrus nose but I’d call the hops more resiny than citrus. Nice and substantial bitterness, hint of sweet, good finish. Not bad, a notch above average. It certainly doesn’t stand out amongst all the other slightly above average bitter pale ales. Kind of a Two Hearted wannabe in flavor profile.
