16 oz. can purchased at Craft Beer Cellar (Amesbury). Can dated 8/26/16. Turbid golden color, lasting white head. Aroma shows HUGE grapefruit peel, mild grassy hints, and pale malt. tekstr1der (507) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Wow! In a blind taste test, I never would have guessed this was a Peak Organic brew.
Good amount of hop punch. Lots of dry grapefruit peel. The pale malt keeps it light in regards to body and texture has a nice soft / airy mouthfeel. The bitterness is light to moderate and never becomes abrasive. I am impressed with this!
Nice looking, pours slightly chill-hazed straw yellow with lasting, clingy white top. Aroma is full of citrus rind with some pine and touch of malt in the background. Flavor is similar, but subdued thankfully. A "juicy" bite of hop hits mid-sip, and finishes fairly clean without too much lingering bitterness. Not bad, but one is enough.

Can dated 11/18/16, so I was a little bit cautious of this, but once I smelled and tasted, I thought, well, this smells, tastes and feels good.
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-hazy rustic orange color with a sly transparency about it. Some messy lacing clings around the sides of the glass nicely.
The aroma hits a big piney bitterness flowing over a juicy citrus rind. Grapefruit zest pops the top to kick up a little bit of spice.
The flavor grasps a bitter juicy rind-like clingy harsh flavor. That pine comes back to balance nicely (that’s gotta be their house yeast). Sharp bitter piney to remnants of some light juice in the aftertaste leading on into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a great sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good for what it is. Bitterness feels good and almost close to an AIPA’s harshness on my tongue.
Overall, really nice beer from a brewery that I usually don’t go after that much any more. Aw hell, if this was this old and held up like this, I can only imagine what it was like fresh. puboflyons (3529) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 8, 2017
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. hopdog (13191) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2016
Can. Poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Juicy as the name implies, citrus and tropical fruitiness.

Can after a good round of disc golf. Finally birdied the 9th hole! Pours golden with a nice fresh, springy aroma of grass and citrus hops. Frothy white head and stickiness. Taste is very light and smooth. Extremely drinkable with flavors of grass, mango, apple, pine and very mild bitterness. Great pale ale. Jow (4164) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2016
I’ve recently gotten over my unwarranted prejudice of this brewery based on it’s name. Dusty dirty blond beer frothy head. Nose is grapefruit and light pine very inviting. Tastes of mango, grapefruit, grassy, toasted grains, slight bubblegum. Creamy and fruity mouthfeel, slight bitterness. Pretty good. GMCC2181 (1617) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Can from StateLine. Cloudy orange/yellowish color. Not much head but good aroma of flowers, biscuits, lemon. Taste is a juicy american pale ale, lots of flowers, biscuits, lemon, grapefruit. The beer is hoppy but not bitter. Body is light and easy to drink.. Overall, I can dig it! MattH (921) - California, USA - JUN 16, 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. ganache (6087) - 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]
