UPDATED: JUN 16, 2014 Wonderful crisp hopness that won’t overwhelm. I’m so glad to see it come in cans now; the perfect beer for a day of playing outdoors. And now they’ve improved the unimprovable: 15-pack "Brewer’s Dozen" available. Wow.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2013 Bottle thanks to trade with joromiller! Pours a clear golden brown with bubbly off-white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma of bready grains, biscuit, grassy and pine hops. Taste is pretty much all malts with a font of floral hops. No real bitterness, which definitely makes it easy to drink, thin body. For the abv it had more flavor than I?d expect. Much better aroma on tap.

Pours a very clear golden color - not as dark as typical IPA. Great nose - floral, fresh, piney. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, very mild hops. Less bitter than most IPAs, but this is a really good, easy drinking beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2013 Fresh, piney, herbal hops on the aroma — very gentle and, again, super fresh. The taste is gently bitter, with all the hop aromatics coming to play, creating a sweet, very green cocktail of pine cones, pineapple, mango, and herbal elements. Regrettably, all of this goodness is somewhat ruined by what I perceive to be a very thin mouthfeel. Perhaps my six pack was a poor batch, but it was flat and a bit thin. It’s an otherwise great beer, though.

12 oz. bottle, thanks to joromiller! Pours a clear amber color with a thick, fluffy white head. Aroma is mild, but hoppy. Taste is crisp, hoppy, citrusy, nice malt balance with a slight hop bitterness in the finish. Overall, nothing out of this world, but definitely a solid, sessionable IPA.

Tap. Clear amber color with minimal head. Complex malt flavor that evolves through each sip. The finish was a bit heavy on the hop bitterness for my tastes, but other than that it was decent.
