carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Dank hops and a whole lotta citrus. Orange, grapefruit, pineapple. A classic West Coast (San Diego) style IPA to me. Less pine and more citrus than some of its brethren.

Smells lovely and fruity. Straw gold and hazy. Malty light fruit taste. Orange and melon. Reminds me a little of a wheat beer and lemonade combo style IPA. Pleasant and drinkable

Can 375ml (AbM, BB 10/2016)
Slightly hazy orange colour, small white head and lace. Tropical fruits, citrus and cardboard. Medium-bodied. Tropical fruity, pineapple and kiwi sweetness in the flavour. Pale malty, light grapefruit in the finish. Juicy IPA. Unfortunately Ales by Mail sold me very old can but this still shows some of its potential.

macca147 (190) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2017
355ml can. Pours a hazy gold orange with lingering white head that laces the glass. Aroma: grapefruit, passionfruit, pineapple, grass notes. Taste: citrus and tropical flavours dominate including passiofruit, pinapple, mango, papaya and orange peel. Mild pine and caramel malt flavours. Mild sweetness followed by a lingering bitterness. Boozy aftertaste. Very, very tasty beer.

ration (2238) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2017 290617. Can at home (abm). Pours slight hazy yellow with a nice head. Aroma oats, citrus. This has that elusive sweet American taste that I often seek. Brings tears of joy to see this of friend again after so many beers. Not Bad.

jake65 (3695) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUN 24, 2017
Can. Pours a murky straw yellow color with a large white head. Tons of sticky lacing. Big aromas of citrus and tropical fruit, melon. Lots of fruity and sweet hop flavors and moderately intense bitters. Grapefruit and melon.

3.1
Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Bottle. Pours a musty yellow-orange. This delivers a mushy orange-rind bitterness with perhaps a hint of coconut. Like a slushy orange soda ice cream, with some beer added in. (#6656, 6/15/2017)

Dervock (1347) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2017
Bottle - pours cloudy orange with a big white head. Aroma is grapefruit, tropical fruit and oats. Taste is fruit upfront with a building citrus hop and sry mildly astringent lingering finish.

3.6
stevoj (5046) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 19, 2017
Draft at BitterCreek. Hazy golden, small creamy head. Muted citrusy aroma, but gets bigger with taste. Grapefruit flavors accented with some savory spice, herbal tones. Nice bite finishes it.

3.5
Towey1989 (2833) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2017
Can at The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a hazy deep golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, some pineapple, slight porridge and subtle perfumey, floral hops. Taste of grapefruit, orange, some passionfruit, maybe pineapple, slight white bread, wheat, oats and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, dryish, floral hop bitterness in the finish. Not as citrusy or hoppy as I was expecting. Quite bready/oaty with soft fruit and citrus. Enjoyed it but just slightly weird for its style.
