Tap at nano brew. Hop forward bitter grapefruit, touch of tangerine, toasted grass malt backing. Tad astringent, but nice hop character. Dry. Pretty good.

On tap 6 Jun 2012, another fantastic IPA from fatheads, theyíve dialed back the ABV and made an easy drinking quick finishing light IPA. only complaint is that its a bit too light, no bite really.. great replacement for any pale lager though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Bodega. The beer is a clear golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and a bit of malt. Light-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character that has zesty citrus and malt notes. The finish is hoppy with a lingering orange rind aftertaste. Overall this is a tasty lower-ABV IPA. I have generally been a fan of this trend.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Fat Heads Pittsburgh. Poured hazy orange with fluffy white head. Floral, citrusy nose. Flavor the same with fresh cut orange and a piney, resinous finish. Yes, a bit thin. Underrated. Great session IPA. Also had the Citra dry hopped version of this on draft as well - even better with more pungent nose and juicy hop flavor. Iíd rate the dry hopped version at 4.1.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Clear amber color. Nice thin foamy off-white head, that really stays. Good lace. Active-looking carbonation. Really nice smooth texture, dry finish. Massive hay, straw citrus peel hop aroma. Oregano. Very flavorful, with a great aftertaste. Good light bitter taste, but it doesnít distract from the aroma, complements it. Really, a great session IPA, gives founders All-day a run for itís money.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler with thanks to coyotehunter. Body is a pretty clear gold and the first glass has a massive head. Aromas are simply lovely. Lots of citrus, pine and tropical fruit. Flavor is less exciting than the nose. Itís a little light in the body and the hops come through abrasive on the hops.

On tap at Fat Heads Pittsburgh. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, and bitter grassy hops. Flavor of grassy, garlicky hops upfront with citrus and bitterness in the finish. Tasty, hoppy, bitter IPA.
