Smells grassy and piney with subtle hints of apricot and orange blossom. Taste is a bit more fruity with sweet apricot up front, some carmel flavors build towards the mid, but the resiny hops come in to clear out the sweetness on the finish. Nice easy mouthfeel, not too grippy for the IBU.

Tap at Mellow Mushroom, Spring. Pours a decent orange with a nose of wet hops, pine, and light grapefruit. Flavor is biting orange juice and grapefruit. Average mouthfeel. Not bad.

12 oz can - pours clear orange-yellow with massive, rocky, white-tan fully lasting head. Big notes of piney citrus, resiny orange, and fragrant hops. Taste is sticky orange and citrus, lots of pine, with juicy bitterness at the long finish. Medium-full bodied. Not a IPA biter, but totally tasty. Will enjoy again.

Hoppy aroma with a hint of lemon. Strong hops but still well balanced. Cloudy pour with very little head. Has a little bite from the high ABU. Very refreshing D IPA.

Not as nice as their normal IPA - the alcohol and sweetness outdid themselves. Still respectable.
