Pours murky lemonade color not much head. Metallic water, juicy hop, pine, grapefruit, lemon aroma. Creamy resinous hop profile. Medium bitter with prickly grass and floral notes. blankboy (7833) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2017
[Can (473ml)] Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with a large lasting fluffy white head. Slightly mild but pleasant enough aroma of citrus hops, light piney hops, bready malt and citrus fruit. Flavour is also citrusy and lightly piney along with sweet bready malt in the back and an average bitter finish -- easy to drink. Crisp mouthfeel, average bodied. Pretty good and better than expected. ganache (6071) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2017
Pint can from State Line. Nose intense orange peel with a little spice but little rind. Pour cloudy orange tending to golden with a bright white head with a slightly oily sheen. Taste medium-bitter but very fine, clean, juicy body with orange, tangerine, grapefruit and their peels, but again, emphasizing the juice. Touch chalky, spice, bit rubbery-pithy toward the end. Smooth, semi-dry, low wood. Love it, earns the name. Is there no real fruit in this?! [2017.07.22: 3.8] crossovert (14038) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2017

Can from Pacific Grove, CA Trader Joe’s. Hazy lighter yellow pour. Aroma is strong and bitter with notes of sweet dried tropical fruit and pineapple. Flavor is medium bitter with notes of grapefruit and lemon rind. Pretty refreshing. Not quite a NE Style IPA. ClarkVV (6893) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Draught at Worden Hall, 4/19/17. puboflyons (3513) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 8, 2017
Lightly-to-minimally hazy, pale-blonde-golden body topped by a small, white head that shows moderate to moderately-low retention.
A hint of popcorn and light butter, a la Shipyard, can be found in the nose, but it’s otherwise clean enough and displays grassy, mildly citric, vaguely juicy hops. Seems stretched pretty thin across the cracker and biscuit-like malts. I certainly would not call the aroma "juicy". No alcohol noted, nor resin. Lots of grass, wood, very light pine lingering.
Attenuated reasonably-well in the mouth, with some light cakey/vanilla-like malt sweetness, moderate, loose carbonation and a bit of light graininess on the end. Noticeably lacking are the hops. There’s some grass, herbal and pepper character with light nectarine and other mild yellow fruits, but it doesn’t really get juicy. Maybe some dry mango and pineapple, at most. Hint of diacetyl rounds out the quick, unremarkable finish. No alcohol noted.
From the can dated 1/25/17. It pours a cloudy yellow with a white head that lasts for some time and fades. OK, this is a "New England" style IPA and it brings out those characters such as grapefruit (mild). white bread and orange. Medium body I would say. The taste has a n ice juicy character as expected from the grapefruit character. Hop heads will like it but it is not different from others in this style. obguthr (6742) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Gumball nose, mild pine notes underneath. Clear golden, thick head, decent lace. Grass, hay, mild grapefruit . Medium body, moderate carbonation. Expected cireusy hops but got a very healthy dose of grassy hops. mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2017
Pours a clear pale golden with a white rim that just sits on top and doesn’t leave much lacing. Nose is of oranges and other citruses, pretty nice! Taste is gently bitter with some sweet cereals an more oranges. Moderately bodied and carbonated. Overall a pretty cool juicy pale ale.
