3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz picked up a while back... I forget where I found it, but a fair number of places have it available now... Pours a pale straw... decent enough white head with spotty lacing..
Nose shows biscuity malt with bunches of lemony and grassy hops..
Flavor strikes me as a pretty heavy wheat/pale maltiness for anything labeled close to an IPA... but the bitterness balances pretty well and a good amount of light citrus and herbal/lite pine hops come in and make this very drinkable.
Light body... good carbonation.. plenty of flavor... Pretty darn nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange body white head some lacing. Citrus, tropical fruit aroma. Pleasant. Taste is semi-bitter, resin, and oranges and other citrus juices. Not bad.

Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crisp, golden coloured body with a very thin, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of fresh light citrus hops with hints of light grain and some mellow malts - not much going on here. Light-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour at first with a good citrus, tropical fruit and floral flavour showing a good deal of interesting hops and a very small malt backbone. Aftertaste shows a little citrus twang with nothing unusual, unexpected or unwanted - good hops with not much malt or body and an easy-drinking Light IPA that shows well. Overall, decent for sure and on the verge of good. Not in the level of a great Light IPA, but worth trying if you like the style - given the ratings, I was expecting much worse, but this was not bad at all. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle, purchased from Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 11-September-2015 for US$1,69 sampled at home in Washington on 15-September-2015, just four days later.

Gushed out of the bottle. White, lacing head. Gold color, clear. Aroma of hop resin with pine. Dry flavor, more pine and hop flavor but not especially bitter.

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.

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.

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.
