Thanks to boamr. Nice gold color with a white head. Light hops in comparison to some IPA’s but maximum drinkability. Nice soft wheat/yeasty notes. Enoyable!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Tap at tired Hands. Pours full haze glowing straw with medium meringue foam. Webby lacing. Nose is fresh tangerine, gamey kumquat. Taste is quite odd, moderate to heavier white sweet cream butter, mango juice, melon rind. Fresh almond sponge cake. Very light mouthfeel with sweet cream adding density. Drinkable, easy to love. 8/4/8/4/16=4.0 3/23/2013
1L growler two days old. Pours beautiful full haze glowing light orange. Thicker meringue head. Nose has fresh oatmeal, fresh pale malt grist, kumquat, tangerine. Taste is ultra refreshing, very light grapefruit/kumquat bitterness, quenching citrus juice, mild sweet cream butter. Palate is buoyant, quenching, fresh. The opposite of most IPAs these days. Could be moved to APA.

3/29/13. Growler thanks to GT2! Hazy orange pour with a frothy khaki head. Big tropical fruit aroma with doughy pale malts and some citrus. Light but rich flavor with lots of maltiness and plenty of nice tropical fruits. Tasty, refreshing, and poundable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Tired hands with Linh, pat and Janine. Pours a beautiful bright, hazy peach orange body with thick white lacing. Aroma is malty, grainy, light grass and hop. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of grain, grass, sweet malts and light crisp hop. Overall very sessionable, but too malty for my personal preference.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very hazy/cloudy pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has mild bready maltiness and juicy orange notes...leafy and floral. Flavor is fairly malty...almost a note of dry leaves...orange and citrus rind creep in and add some mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is rindy/bitter and dry.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky gold, oily white head, considerable lacing. Doughy nose is light hop oil, Flavor is incredibly delicate, oily and just resinous with considerable dough. Throughout it all is a balancing honey, making the experience sweeter than expected, and better. Soft palate compliments the sweetness, leaving a key lime desert impression minutes after last sip. Totally unique.

Growler that, I believe, was shared by Dak @ Woodshed 2.0! Golden tangerine pour with a small ivory head. Evergreen, tree sap, and grapefruit pith in the nose. Flavor shows a lot of dirty, dusty, earthy hops. Not bright but incredibly drinkable. Love that this clocks in at 4%...and that we had it early in the tasting. Sessionable yes, IPA...not so fast, my friend!
