Yields an amber-orange color, with a stable, dense head. The nose features an awesome blend, ranging between peaches, lime and wet grass, balanced between fruity and dank. Both aroma directions stay on par, while tangerine peel, watermelon and strawberry stem add to the hops. Its profound hoppiness gets balanced by cakey malts, which stay in the background, for the hops being the mayor player. Has a higher, refreshing carbonation, representing the beers extremely refreshing, light body. This is perfect for having a bunch of, without passing out, while it features a fantastic, wide range of flavors to remain interesting. Begins aqueous with bready malts, while the carbonation becomes earlier visible than the hops do. They do shake the palate though with distinct dank flavors, while the mouthfeel slowly grows fuller, still remaining easily drinkable. Oranges develop from sweeter turning malts, featuring a lemony fruitiness, still accompanied by grass and minerals. In this fine-tuned blend, the hops turn suddenly outstandingly dry, revealing even more lemon, while they then leave the palate in a dough, pleasant way, leaving back malts and stony minerals. A truly great example of a relatively low, easy drinking beer, which might most likely will never ever turn boring to me, as it provides an awesome hoppy taste diversity.

JPDIPSO (5107) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Cloudy straw/light orange color. Moderate light ecru head. Grassy citric aromas, Zesty with some mild malt scents. Nothing overly enticing, but solid. Pure green earthy citric hops flavors strike the palate. Fairly biting in feel. I Understand the American pale ale “thing”, but sometimes there is just to much of an imbalance. This certainly has the herbal, grassy, wild weed components, but there is little balance for me, Just citric, acidic, hop juice. 2/10

Mr_Abner (178) - Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Can. Pours a clear golden color. Smells of citrus and flowery hops, some earthiness underneath, some malts. Light bitterness. Nice hop flavor, but something about it comes across as "stale". Average carbonation, lightly bitter finish.
