TheAlum (6944) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Draft pour on tap at Quintonís Bar & Deli (Iowa City, IA). Pours a decent hazed amber golden hue, a touch darker with a decent glow overall. Frothy offwhite head atop is full, creamy, sticks around and laces well enough. Aromas show some punchy Citra hops, fruity elements are a bit tropical and citrusy, the bitter floral and earthy resiny appeal hits a bit stronger as we settle. Initial is lighter bodied overall with just a touch of girth into the middle. A decent fruity Citra tangy appeal meets firmer bitter florals, rind oils and resiny appeal. A mellow sweetness, cleaner backend with some soapy and citrus rind bitterness hangs on. Not potent but certainly on par with a more sessionworthy style. I dig the flavors and flow, but itíd be nice to see the ABV just a touch lower.

Clean taste - subtle with the spices. Really hits the spot after a long hot bike ride.

ajnepple (5073) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Clear blonde appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of fresh zesty hops, light toasted grain and hints of bread. Similar flavor, adding a light hop bitterness. Light to medium body with a crisp mouth feel. A nice easy drinking quaffer overall.

theisti (3882) - Kansas, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Shaker pint draft at Royal Mile in Des Moines, Iowa. I had two, the first was served in a plastic glass, the second in a glass shaker. The pour is hazed golden with a one inch white head. The aroma is grain cereal malt, some citrus and a hint of floral. The taste is the citrus hop, which shows as grapefruit, balanced out by the grain of the malt. Soft sweetness to the finish, which detracted a bit. The palate is light to medium bodied, with soft natural carbonation and the lingering softly sweet finish.

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Tap at Confluence. Very very solid in its style. Straightforward clean crisp golden ale with a really nice citrus twist. Great on a hot day.

TXBadger (2530) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Cereal grains, some light pilsner malt notes, some light grass, and a hint of citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes clean and light.

malrubius (2587) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Squealer from Iowa. Cloudy golden with white ring and lace. Beautiful citrus lemon aroma. Mild tropical fruit sweetness with lemongrass with very dry finish with a hint of citrus. Light and refreshing but I canít imagine why they didnít use a Belgian yeast to give it a little bready fruitiness. Very good but could have been better.
