UPDATED: JAN 11, 2016 Not a fan. Although thereís some decent hoppy aroma, the flavor is harsh making the beer tough to finish.

Pretty fantastic pale ale/session IPA. Big citrus notes on the nose and beautiful bitter taste. Very pale and very filtered. Good and well-made beer.

Bottle best by March 2016. Poured copper gold with a 2 finger head. Big hop aroma, sticky, green, and herbaceous. Deceptively thick bodied with well hidden alcohol, with super green fresh hop flavor balanced by a bready sweetness. I can see this not being everyoneís cup of tea, but for me I just canít get enough of that biting green-ness.

Bottle from 2015 Secret Santa -- cheers Jess! Surprisingly crisp, with a dry, bready flavor. The hop profile is strongly damp and citrus, and comes on strong and never really lets down. Brilliant hoppy pale ale / session IPA.

Nice golden yellow hue, passes some light, solid white foam head. Solid bitterness, flowers, pine, resin. Light body.

Tap. Hazy bright gold, with a fluffy white head. Herbal, grassy, and slight resin with some slight sweetness from the malt in the aroma. Flavor is bitter grass, dank, resiny, but not over the top. Lighter soft body, thatís a touch light even for the style.

A tasted Fromally 12oz. bottle, it pours a lovely amber hue with very little head and a light hoppy aroma. Nice bite on the tongue with a bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had it out of a Bomber, pours a hazy shady orange, with a white head (hello Phyllis Diller), Wafty hop aroma with a smooth, non bitter hop taste.

bookman10 (806) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Pours a hazy, yellow-gold, with mid-sized, quickly-dissipating head. Strong floral pine-spruce hop aroma. Flavor is quite bitter, with forward hops and a lot of pine-bite. Not really a fan of this or any session IPA--they always feel like Iím drinking a light beer. I want more body, more complexity.

500ml bottle. Poured a very nice golden yellow color with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma ws lots of nice floral notes, grapefruit, with citrus lemon notes. Flavor was nice pine resin, caramel - well balanced, with tasty citrus. Very delicious.
