Draft/growler. Pours a very light hazy straw color with a medium white head. Nose is citrus and grass. Taste is citrus up front but with a bready malt finish. Crisp and refreshing. Excellent session beer.

Drank awhile ago in a can, not a huge fan. Drank at Carton on tap, a million times better. Nice light sessionable, solid brew on tap!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2015 BJCP Category: 21B Specialty IPA: Session IPA
AROMA: Pineapple, grapefruit peel, faint garlic/onion in the background. 10/12
APPEARANCE: Pale banana yellow; murky body though no sediment. Large, off-white, soapy foam mostly dissipates. 2/3
FLAVOR: A melange of citrus, tropical fruits and earthy spices. Grapefruit is prominent, but more of a peel than a juicy taste. Some pineapple flavor throughout. Strong dry spicy sensation (rye/garlic bread) probably due to Kolsch yeast. Not much distinctive malt character, though enough to offer a modicum of balance. 17/20
MOUTHFEEL: Plenty of body for only 4.2%. Light/medium intensity; texture is smooth. CO2 low/medium - not quite crisp, but not paper thin either. Highly quaffable, refreshing, and sessionable. Lingering spicy aftertaste. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Essentially a New England-style IPA as a session IPA. Works well as both. Lovely all around. 9/10
TOTAL SCORE: 42/50

On tap at the Paragon Tap in Clark NJ with Mike67. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a large white fluffy head, good lacing.

Palate is a medium body with good carb. Finish is sweet tropical citrus flavor and hops with some malt for balance. Overall a very good and tasty brew for summer drinking.

16 ounce can. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. A nice floral and perfume nose. A really flavorful brew, huge hop cones, oranges, pine. Very nice bitter finish. 4.2% wow! Tastes like 7%. Awesome. I’d drink a growler of this.

Can. Cloudy canned-peach gold with a fuzzy head of white. Peppery hops also give off notes of grapefruit peel. Flavor adds a nice little floral sweetness sprinkled with pine needles and orange peel, finishing with gentle honey/cracker malt sweetness and mild bitterness. Lingering citrus pulp tang. Sessionable.

Growler from Joe Canal. Pours hazy golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and bready malt. Body is medium and crisp.
