Murky orange pour with a huge, frothy white head. Aroma is very strong and citrusy, with orange zest being predominant. Flavor is the same, lot of citrus - orange and grapefruit. Sweet malty middle, lingering citrus. Very fresh tasting and hop forward. This is a fantastic brew.

LtDan (1785) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Appearance: Pours a dull amber orange with a decent 1/2 inch of sudsy head.

Aroma: Very citrus forward hops. Tangerine/clementine action from a far. A small touch of pine and a kiss of rock sugar like malt.

Taste: Bitter earthy pine like hops, citrus essence and pith, dry toasted pale malt. Finishes juicy and bitter.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied. Medium carbonation. Juicy.

Overall: I enjoyed this beer a lot. Beautifully hopped, not to strong, would pick up a 6/12 pack of this if it was an option.

GMCC2181 (1500) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Can from SL. Danky, citrus hop nose. Glowing orange in color, with a small head. Nice hop citrus tropical fruit taste. Not really bitter but nice hoppiness and well balanced. Light grass/hay notes as well. Body is light, fluffy and easy to drink, good summer beer that you can take any where since it is in a can. Overall, thumbs up! Good stuff!

Pours a pale cloudy yellow with a huge white head, head fades overtime to a bubbly ring. Aroma is mangoes, grapefruit, and spearmint. Very floral and sweet smelling as well, some honey notes as well. Very nice aroma. Taste is pine resin and pitch, some bubblegum sweetness, citrus acidity. Interestingly it finishes slightly soapy which I didnít care for, small detractor though. Overall I like this beer quite a bit, I enjoy the fact that it is in a can and easily transportable to sporting events or even camping. Nice.

From the 12 fl. oz. can marked 04/14/2014. Thanks bruguru, an inactive RB member. The pour is a foggy pale yellow-orange tone with a lingering white foamy head. The aroma is generally on the sweet side bu the fruity and floral hop sensation is lovely on the nose. Malts are secondary. The body is smooth and around medium. The taste is so much like the aroma with its citrus, orange, fruity, and floral hop flavors. But nothing that is over the top.

PhillyCraft (3143) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Can at tasting, pours golden. Notes are Refreshing with soap, and dank hops. Smell has watermelon and dank fruits but a little too much vtg head and shoulders for itís own good.

Can. Very light body for an ipa. Smooth finish but slightly lacking in hops. Great summer ipa.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 In a can. Thin aroma. Cloudy yellow gold color. Tastes like grapefruit juice thatís been much watered down. Little depth, despite the wisp of malts at the finish. More cat piss than "California style."

12 oz. can. Poured hazy orange with fluffy white head. Bready with peach, orange, light pine. Medium bodied. Rather standard IPA but solid nonetheless.
