superspak (6108) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - DEC 15, 2017
12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 3/20/2017. Pours slightly hazy medium golden/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big blood oranges, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, passionfruit, mango, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, light honey, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops, blood oranges, and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big blood oranges, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, passionfruit, mango, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, light honey, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of blood oranges, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, passionfruit, mango, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, honey, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops, blood oranges, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/creamy. fairly sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is a delicious fruited IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops, blood oranges, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and pretty refreshing to drink; with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Very juicy blood oranges and juicy/light dank hops complexity; balanced bready malt backbone. On the malty side for an IPA, but never too sweet/heavy feeling. Makes the juiciness of the fruit/hops stand out more. A very enjoyable offering.

Translucent straw blonde with a white, frog's egg head. Citrusy, lightly sweet aroma. Fresh tangerine up front, modestly sweet, pithy bitterness, orange zest on the back end. Nice pithy/zesty finish, good carbonation retention. On tap, Momos.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 12 oz. can picked up in Indy. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized fluffy white head. The aroma is blood orange, citrus with a light resiny character. The flavor had a nice caramel and bready malt backbone surrounded by the orange and grapefruit citrus hops. The bitterness lingered through the finish with a hint of resin coming in as well. Improves upon the base.

It’s got a refreshing vibe to it. The blood orange is well received, especially if you find yourself on the porch/beach on a bright sunny day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (6908) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Can. Pours a clear orange body with a one finger frothy white head. The nose is very fruity and citrusy with a lot of orange rind like notes. Smells as much like oranges as it does IPA. The flavor is very fruity up front with lots of blood orange. The bitterness hits on the back end with some grapefruit and pithy notes. The malt base is on the drier side, with a minimal caramel sweetness. Mediums bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering finish. Pretty decent fruited IPA.

Great aroma (8+) with lots of blood orange, more citrus and lots of hops. Flavour, also nice, of blood orange and hops -- simple but delicious. Pleasant bitter finish. Medium bodied. I loved it.
