Bottle. Clear yellow with a medium sized off white head. Hops forward with lots of citrus backed by a light bready malt base. Light body, a bit watery in the texture, prickling carbonation. Light sweet and medium bitter with a long lasting bitter and dry finish. Light and thirst quenching.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
It pours a light golden color and leaves the same colored body and barely leaves any head except for a small film coating the center of the pint as a patch of whiteness that dies within seconds. No lacing is left and some carbonation is seen rising.
The smell really only has some bitter hops and nothing else.
The taste is the bitter hops with a bit of grapefruit coming slightly in.
The palate is super light (Founders is definitely going to give the BMC drinkers a run for their money on this one). A decent dry finish helps define the mouthfeel, and has a very good drinkability.
Overall, this is a good beer. However, probably not one I would have this time of year, but one I would much rather have during the summer months.

Refreshing citrus and a light malt profile really makes this beer an "All Day IPA". It’s not a very complex beer but in a good way. The flavors of grapefruit, lemon, and pine work perfectly with the light malt profile while the hops are there to add a nice bit of character.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
As advertised, a very "sessionable" IPA, that has a strong citrus hoppy flavour with very little bitterness. Pours amber in colour, and has medium notes of grapefruit and caramel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, at Kick. An almost clear one, dark golden orange in color and with a minimal sized off-white head. The aroma is mostly citrusy, with pine cones and a touch of pale malts and biscuits. Some umami. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, some maltyness in the back. Full to medium body with a pleasant carbonation level. Pine cones and a nice bitterness in the end. Sure an all day beer. 140201
