4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer is super well balanced. Nice floral notes and bitter enough to give it a bite without being overpowering. Color rings true to west coast ipa style. Love the low(er) abv. Obviously not a "session" beer but I can rock this all day :)

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 355ml bottle on 23/8/2013. Pours a clear lightish golden with a small head. Has a beautiful floral, fruity aroma, featuring loads of passionfruit. The flavour includes sweet citrus fruit, a hint of stone fruit, and a lovely medium, lingering grapefruit bitterness. Has a light body and medium carbonation. This is a very nice IPA and quite impressive for something that weighs in at just 4.7% ABV.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Capones. Pours a golden yellow color with a light amber hue and a one finger white head. Bright citrus aroma with hints of pine and subtle malt can be picked up underneath. Sweet grapefruit flavor is very fresh and bright up front. Grassy bitterness balances the sweeter citric hops. Slightly toasty pale malt sits in the background. Crisp, light body, with a medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ar: Zesty grapefruit, lemon, and pine - very bright.
Ap: Very light amber, clear - small off-white head with moderate-good retention and a ring and thin film of foam.
T: Clean, cracker-like malt - bitterness is high and clean - lemon and pine flavor - finish is cracker malt.
P: Light body with high carbonation, comes off as very thin, almost watery - finish is very dry.
O: This beer has a great hop nose, but between the ultra-clean malt profile and the very thin body, it just falls flat, overall.

Dark golden colored pour. Small white head that fades fast. Little bit of lacing left behind. Danky aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is exactly how the smell is. Some vegetal notes. Thin-ish. No malt character. Nice summer beer, for sure.
