4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured form a 16 oz can, canned on 9/9/15, into a glass clear orange yellow with a light tan head. Pine and citrus blossom in they mouth and balanced very nicely, with very mild bitter finish. This is a great gateway beer, to introduce IPA’s to non IPA drinkers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 fl oz can from Firma Bier, canned in January 2015 (eight months old). Clear, golden orange with a huge, frothy, almost stable, tan head. Fruity-resiny aroma of mango, pine and honey. Sweetish, fruity-resiny taste of mango, honey and pine, followed by a smooth, mildly bitter and only covertly grapefruity finish. Medium to full body, very creamy and smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very sweet IPA, rather fruity but unexpectedly mild. Prominent malt profile, actually screaming for more hops. Still very good but again I assume this beer is already past its prime.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2015 Poured from a bottle. Pours a nice copper gold with white head. Hoppy, citrus aromas. Full mouth feel. Flavors like the aromas: orangey citrus, hops, some pine. Some lingering bitterness. Very balanced and a great beer overall.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
As ales go this is definitely the best I have ever had. Pours hazy sunshine gold, aroma erupts from the bottle with the scent of freshly cut grass and orange blossoms. Taste is just right, bitterness not too heavy not too light, sweetness is just right. Has a medium body with a touch of creaminess. just a touch of carbonation. the taste does not make me go WOW, but it does make me say Hay, this is just right! finishes smoothly with no excessive after taste. Overall this beer it just right.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can at home. Nicely cloudy, light golden colour with a creamy white head. Hop profile is orange zesty, grapefruit, citrus and resinous on top of a nicely grainy, moderately sweet malty base. Finish is citrus fruity and bitter, but without any tardness, clean. Good body, low carbonation, soft palate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Archive. Pours light amber with sustained frothy head. Aroma of orange peel from the hops which spice up the taste. It finishes with pleasant light bitterness on the palate. Worth a revisit closer to the source
