Clear, honey-colored pour with a small, white head. The aroma has nice pine and citrus notes. The light body is a little thin with lively carbonation. The taste begins bitter but then eases up a bit and finishes smooth.

12oz bottle not from the aforementioned limited release areas - pours gold with white head and decent lacing. Nose is citrus pine. Flavor adds light caramel and more hoppity stuff. Quite bitter with slight sweetness. Light to medium body. Refreshing. A hoppy beer with a low ABV.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits in Athens. Big stinky hop aroma -- almost industrial-strength armpit. Crisp-looking, slightly hazy yellow, with big sticky bubbles on the sides of the glass and more rising up quickly. Sharp hop hit initial / mid gets the carb up (fizz n’ hops) / finish is dry with some moderate balancing. IBU level is not so high, but the hops come out in a big way. For all that, it is fairly balanced, This could be Daddy’s Saturday night slammer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear deep golden color with a smallish off white head that quickly dissipates to a small ring on the top. Smells of citrus pine and earth with a hint of bready malt that barely shows itself. The flavor is fruity, juicy, citrus and pine with a hint of bready malt to make you believe there is actually some malt in there. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Great light easy drinking ipa, If I thought my wife would let me get away with it I could drink these all day.
