Either I got a bad bottle or this is over-rated. Color was light orange-gold with little head or lacing. Nose was fruity apples, peaches, apricots, but the mouthfeel was watery and very sour......not like the lead-in on a Flemish Sour...just tartly sour. Although the fruit came thru somewhat in the taste, it was not a fresh, real fruit taste, but more like a cheap fruit candy. Not surprisingly, finish left a sticky, sweet-sour aftertaste. Not impressed with this one

.33l bottle @Black Step. Pours cloudy orange with medium head. Aroma is pine, bread, grape fruit, citrus and some strawberry. Flavor is mostly same but not that rich vs. aroma. Medium bodied beer. Nice.

Bottle from Jungle Jims. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted pale malts, light caramel, floral hops, a hint of citrus with mild plus bitterness to the finish. A touch better than I expected.

Mild, bold, earthy, easy American ipa. Not the most interesting of its kind, but definitely drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice creamy white head. Leaves lacing. Aroma is hoppy, with citrus. Taste is bitter, could do with a bit more malt balance
