murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Pours clear golden with a thin white head. The aroma is quite hoppy, with some grassy and citrus notes, a bit of lemon. Taste is very light bodied, a bit of sweet malt up front with hints of toast and grain. More hops and a light bitterness on the finish. While this beer isn’t very flavorful or complex, they pack a surprising amount of hop aroma into such a light bodied beer. A great beer for a hot summer day.

Had this while camping at BCTC this year. Pours a clear gold and yellow with a thin white head. Skunky, a bit of wheat and crisp malt. Malt, skunk, sweet toast. Long bitter finish.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2010
Presentation: It was poured into a pint glass from a growler that I had filled at the Consumer Beverage Center in Orchard Park. Appearance: The body has a bright yellow gold color with great clarity. On top sits a small one and half finger thick white head that hangs on well and makes some nice lace on the glass. Smell: The aroma has a nice sweet maltiness with tons of juicy hop character. It has strong citrusy and fruity with just a hint of fruitiness. The malt is much lighter and understated which really shows off the vibrant hops. Taste/Palate: It is a little lighter bodied than most Pale Ales, sort of a light to medium range with a good bright and juicy hop forward character. This is right on point from the aroma and there are nice citrusy lemon and grapefruit with hints of pineapple notes over a delicate sweet bready layer of maltiness. It finishes fairly dry with more citrusy hops and mellow hop bitterness. The lighter body easy drinking texture makes for an extremely refreshing beer with plenty of nice carbonation. Notes: Overall it has a modest and pleasing hop character with tons of easy hot summer time drinkability.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
Growler from Consumer’s Beverages on Elmwood in Buffalo, shared with tupalev. Hazy gold with an average frothy pancake-batter like head. Simple, but really appealing aroma - light citrus/citrus zest, a hint of pine, and some dried wildflowers. Tastes dry, not a huge malt backbone to it (slightly sweet, hint of roast), quite pungently bitter, grapefruit pith + herbal bitterness (surprising from that light, almost fruity aroma) - some alcohol, and quite dry. Average body, slightly astringent, fairly mild carbonation, and an extremely long citrus/resin bitter finish. Not amazing, but solid - and under 5% was greatly appreciated by the two guys drinking a growler between them!!

blankboy (5798) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2010
Growler. Pours a clear, quite bubbly light gold, with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Nice aroma of hops, fruit and honey. Flavour’s pretty flavourful for a light beer, which is a good thing, with some light hops, fruit, caramel malt, and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Nothing world-beating but a solid, easy-drinking session beer, great for warm Summer days -- I will easily drink the whole growler.

rudolf (2310) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Tap @ Goodbar beer club. Light gold, thin white head. Nose is honeysuckle, lemon, orange, mango. Seriously EBC - this is the best smelling beer you guys have made. Flavor is honeysuckle, toasty malt with very light caramel, some grapefruit. Not quite as hoppy as the nose suggests but really solid!

blipp (5679) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Draft at Coles. Pours gold with a white head. Light grainy malt aroma with a hint of hops. The flavor is on the lighter side, with a touch of malt and a light lemony citric hint. Quick finish.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Light in color - almost strawlike. Some grass in the nose. Light bodied, medium maltiness with kiss of citrus at the finish. A good lawnmower beer, for sure.

9/23/08 - Draft Sample at Brewpub as "summer IPA". Pours yellow with fizzy white head. Nose is creamy malt with mild cutrus. Malty, cram ale taste with mild corn and moderate bitter and mild citrus hop flavor. Meh.
