"Tasty crack cans." There’s a lot I like about this beer, but I felt a little let down in the taste department. I love the concept - a hop forward session beer in a can. In fact, I made an IPA which accidentally turned out very low gravity but had plenty of hop wallop. And that experience led me to be a touch disappointed with this beer. It is quality, looking good and tasting good, and it achieves its mission of a tasty, sessionable beer. However, I would’ve liked a little more flavor and specifically a little more bitterness and hop character. It’s there, but sort of indistinct bitterness...would love a beer like this with more late addition to hops to bring out pine/citrus/etc. I liked this beer, and would buy it again, but more than anything it has fired up my homebrewing imagination.

Six pack cans at home. Now called Down to Earth. Really tasty- like a subdued and classier version of the massive ipa’s that are taking over the taps. Pine and citrus (grapefruit, orange) mostly- medium bodied with a crisp finish. Somewhat bitter but not overly so. Well balanced. At 4.4 and unassuming I happily had a second. May drink this one all summer.

12 oz can poured. I always love the artwork on the cans from these guys. Very tasty beer here. Pours a cloudy orange color with a ton of head and lace. Sweet grapefruit like aroma. Full of flavor for such a light session. Juicy mango and citrus. Delicious session. Loved it.

Thanks Jerry! Nice orange color, off-white head. Good citrus hop aroma with some malt. Lots of hop flavor with a malty character. A whole lot of good things going on here. As session beers go, this is among the best!

Nice aroma, Carmel haze, hop note with bitter malt overtone. Non overpowering IPA but not too light to remind you it has hops. Easy drinking ale.

Very solid extra pale ale. Great beer with good bitterness mellowed out my delicious malts.

Can. Pours out a somewhat orangy color with a small white head. Aroma is of light citrus and floral hops with some grainy malts. Taste is smooth, and has a decent amount going on, fruity citrus hops, light grains, dough, mild sweetness with some bitterness in the finish. Solid session.
