4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
BOD 042/15. Pours a clear amber with a hint of garnet. Outstanding head volume and retention, world class lacing.
World class nose of blended hops. Citrus (grapefruit, lemon), tropical (mango, pineapple) and pine all make an appearance over a subtle biscuit.
Light medium body that has a smooth texture and a bit of oiliness. Slightly above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish.
The outstanding flavor profile is intense and hop flavor forward, slightly complex and fairly balanced. It begins with hop flavors that never relinquish the forefront. The flavors follow the nose with a blended hop profile that begins with tropical, flows to citrus and shifts to grapefruit and pine in the middle. The middle is mildly bitter over a hint of biscuit. The finish is slightly dry and a rind bitterness lingers. A superb session beer and possibly the ultimate lawnmower beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral hops and a deep malty aroma one from this pale copper brew with bits of FOD and small white bubbles gathering around the glass. It's very hoppy but not bitter with a slight sweetness and crisp taste followed by a grainy and slight bitter taste. It's very light bodied and would be pleasant on a hot summer day.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very tasty, session beer. Little ABV makes it easy to pound a six pack and not feel bad about it. Nice hoppy, citrusy flavor. Way better than drinking any macro light beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Relatively light toasty malt but very strong citrus hops, plenty of bitter. This one is kind of like eating a tangerine. Drank from the can. Average carbonation and a little sweetness. Refreshing and delicious.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours a dark gold -- quite pretty - with a high, large-grained, ecru head. Nose is spruce, pine, grapefruit, and sourdough bread. Substantial hops bitterness on the tongue, with just a touch of toffee-malt sweetness to lighten it up; relatively substantial, but the carbonation is a little low and it throws the mouthfeel off. Finish is a little thin. Decent attempt at a style I’m still not fond of.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, and orange in the aroma, with a little underlying caramel malt. Nice bitter, fruity flavor. Mouthfeel is a little light and thin, as expected in a session. Somewhat watery finish.
