can. clear orange with a large, can poured, foamy white head. candy-like sweet, fruity, hop nose. flavor is well balance with fruity and floral hop notes. a large amount of low alpha hops. medium bodied with plenty of malt sweetness and light toasted bread. a low-ish amount of carbonation adds to the drinkability.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours very lightly hazy copper with a large, foamy and frothy off-white eggshell head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is earthy and spicy rye malt, herbal and spicy hops with citrus notes, and light peach and apricot fruity esters. Flavor is heavy hops and moderate bitterness, dry supporting rye and cracker malt with light fermentation fruity esters, balanced toward hops, and a dry finish with a lightly spicy and citrus pith aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation, light alcohol warmth, no creaminess or astringency.

Had this out of the tall boy can. I was surprised by the malty flavor based on a citrus like aroma. Pours with a decent head from a can. I love citrus ipas...I was intrigued by this beer’s overall balanced flavor and clean, crisp finish.

I tasted this beer last summer at Kennebunkport and it has a strong hoppy taste in the best IPA tradition with good lasting finish. A good session ale. Can I buy it in the UK?

I’ve never consumed perfume before but I would imagine it to taste like this beer, which is way over the top too sweet.

Pours hazy orange-amber with a tall, chunky, off-white head.
Sweet orange aroma, florals.

Some pine and caramel.
Very soft and smooth.

Hazy gold. Aroma is sweet, citrusy, pine, and even a little floral. Flavor is definitely an IPA - clean bitter with some pine, grapefruit, and caramel.

Comes out of the tap a beautiful clear amber - not much in the way of the off-white head, but that is an artifact of the pour. Aroma is not too strong, but fruity and hoppy, rather inviting. Strong flavor is quite hoppy, rather bitter, better than what the aroma promised. Malty flavor has a firm hoppy, woody overtone and a fruity underpinning that has apple and orange notes. Texture is about average in the thickness and fizz department. Roar, tiger, roar!

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Big orange/grapefruit nose, bright tangerine color. So I was expecting a big citrus taste and instead got a maltier one. It’s an interesting change of pace, even if I still prefer strong citrus and bitterness in my IPAs. Very pleasant aftertaste, tangy and wet.
