Really light IPA....pretty good though. Really light on alcohol content as well. Worth a try though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap: The aroma consists of light citrus, tropical fruits, lemon, faint, grapefruit, and a hint of dank hops. It’s a transparent golden-orange with a one finger white head that eventually fades to a thin film. There is some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus and hints of fruit. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit, lemon peel, and a hint of dank hops. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Tad thin. Solid session but nothing amazing but I’d drink it again. Citrus with biscuit finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 10/28/2015. Pours slightly hazy bright golden straw color with a 12 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, pine, cracker, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and solid robustness of citrus/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately crisp/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a nice session IPA. All around good balance and solid robustness of citrus/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 12 oz. can poured to snifters, showing a clear, golden color, with a layer of white head froth that gradually reduced to a persistent ring, and light spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was initially dank, then pine, and lemony citrus notes. Light bodied, with decent carbonation, the same notes were lightly bittered in the flavor to produce a dry finishing, and quite sessionable brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz from chilled can. Tasty. Light in alcohol, but definitely bitter and flavorful. Much more bitter than I would have expected for the size. A great choice when a weaker beer is needed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is citrus-pine. Has decent lasting head with nice lacing. Taste is a little watery, belying the low alcohol content. This inhibits the flavor, hence the lower score. Has a lot of potential, but it just doesn’t maximize it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear straw pale color. Nice piney hop kick and a little grass on the nose. Taste is clean and easy, a good outdoor summer beer. No weird aftertastes or off flavors. There are better session IPA’S out there but this is good.
