3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/22/15
Aroma: The aroma is fairly clean, lightly hoppy, some floral and citrus, earth, and a bit of grass
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear orange-good, with an off-white head and coating lace
Flavor: Three flavor is right on what I expected, clean hop, light sweetness, good, clean bitterness
Palate: The body is light medium, not watery or think, easy drinking, and quite clean
First of, why the heck is this not canned? I mean this is definitely what I personally want in a canned Session IPA. Do better next time.

Bottle. Light in color and body, this is definitely "easy" ... but itís still full of character and worthy of the FW moniker. (#5975, 5/22/2015)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a bright yellow-gold color with huge creamy-fluffy white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was leafy, floral and fruity hops - fairly robust and a touch earthy. The flavor was bitter, leafy, floral and fruity hops with a bit of earthiness underneath. Medium length finish. Medium body. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden yellow, fluffy white head. Soda-like carbonation. Aroma is mostly citrus, some pine. Taste is quite refreshingly bitter, more citrus; finish very dry. Another review said "crushable" and I agree--a summer sunshine beer for hopheads. A little thin, of course, but considering it is less than 5% itís terrific. One of the better examples of a style that has exploded in the last few years, along with Founders and Stone, IMHO.

Can: Yellow, sort of bright and golden, topped with a modest white head. Aroma is sharp; citrus and floral hops. Clean hop flavor, more citrus and florals, with a light underlying malty sweetness. Solid, big. A session IPA that drinks like an IPA, finally.
