COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our hoppy, refreshing session drinker. This bright golden colored brew offers aromas of tropical fruit and pine, along with a juicy citrusy blast on your palate. Finishes with a lingering dry bitterness. Peace, Love and Hoppiness.

Bottle received in a trade from awlcordell. Clear and honey gold with just a little almost white foam. Tropical fruit and pine with light malts. This is a nice version of a session IPA with enough sweetness to offset the hops.

Taster at beerfest - nose is cat urine. Sip adds pine. Very light. Refreshing g and the night cap I approve of. Dangle....

I had only a small amount of this as a taster, but it was very bright with nice citrus and tropical fruit on the nose and the palate. Really easy to drink. Wish I had more than a taster!

Pours a light gold with a thick white head. Aroma of bitter grapefruit and grain. Taste is bitter citrus and malt. Light, crips and refreshing!

bottle. Golden with one finger head. Awesome hop aroma. Fresh citrusy hop flavor. Wonderfully delicious. Almost like grapefruit soda.

Rusty Bucket, Dayton, OH, draft. Blond. Cloudy. Aroma of grapefruit. Fizzy head. Bitter and hoppy and crisp, fizzy. Good lacing. Carbonated. Thin mouthfeel. Kinda of thin, lacking oomph. Is a session IPA, but so is Founders All Day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (1871) - Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Semi-clear, golden yellow body with a soapy, bone white head that quickly reduces to a big bubbled collar. Very nice, juicy & dank tropical fruit aroma. Gushing pineapple, guava, peach, & tangerine with a light dankness, tons of hop oil, & a big, wet grass finish. Very nice. Taste has more of a leafy, earthy spice hop character. The tropical notes take a backseat, but they’re still there. Wet pines, grass, light weeds, & just a light touch of soapiness. Dry, wet grass & pine finish. A very nice session ale with a juicy aroma.

AWISLguy (1292) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from mdg164, thanks Marc for the addition! Pours a clear golden orange with a white head leaving a lot of drips of lace. Aroma has fresh fruits, citrus and pine. Just a terrific aroma. Taste is of orange, grapefruit, some pine and some fruits - mango mostly. Medium bodied and hoppy. Finishes nicely balanced between bitter and sweet, but without a lot of length. Very hop forward, just without following well into the taste - which would take it to the top of sessionables. 14.2

blomster (256) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Summer Secret Santa. Clear, light copper pour with a fluffy head. Aroma of citrus, pine, peaches, bready malt. Medium bitter. Good malt base to back up the hops. Mouthfeel on the thin side. Tasty stuff!
