Drinkability is through the roof on this one with only 4.7% abv. So much hop and citrus flavor crammed into this lighter brew. An all day drink favorite.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2013 Strong hoppy aroma. The flavor is piney and hoppy. Pleasant sting and aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At home, can from a 12 pack. Pours a medium gold with a very thin head. Nose is grapefruit and pine, some nice lighter caramel notes, a little dank. Flavor is pine and light caramel up front, grapefruit and dankness come out fit a sec before a piney finish. Nice, perhaps a touch sweet but it would probably feel hollow without that sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into tulip. Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow to orange, with a white head. Some lacing. Aroma is resinous, and grapefruit begins to show through as the beer warms. Light and bitter - stunningly drinkable. Healthy carbonation, nice and prickly. I reckon this would be a good introduction to IPAs for the casual drinker. Overall score inflated due to the epic drinkability.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille 33cl, partagée par Tderoeck.
Dorée, col blanc fin.
Arôme est houblonné/fruité, notes d’agrumes assez frais et dans la lignée des IPA typiquement américaines. Pointe de malt.
Palais ici aussi agréablement bien houblonné, frais impression de sève - pin. Amertume herbacée, citronnée et autres agrumes. Touche maltée - caramel. Ce profil houblonné donne une certaine longueur en bouche. Facile à boire et rafraîchissante pour 4.7%.

Sample at SBWF 2013.
Orange with a white head. Aroma and taste of fruit, hops, grape and some pine. Bitter and refreshing. Not that heavy but nicely drinkable.

Can from Ian, thanks a lot! Holy shit, what an aptly named beer. Light golden pour with a big white head. Lots of piney aroma with some sweet caramel. Very light bodied, with sticky pine hops. I don’t think I’ve drank a beer this fast since funneling them through a lawn ornament in high school.

12 Oz bottle from Redmonds. Quite pale amber/gold, thin fizzy white head, doesnt last. Grassy, piney spruce hops in the aroma, a little tropical fruit and grain too. Big flavour, tropical fruits again, bittersweet hops, touches of grapefruit, mellowing to a sweet malty graininess. Light bodied and very highly carbonated. Long, bitter finish. Nice and really fresh considering the journey.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Bright orange body. Huge juicy grapefruit aroma and flavour, just so juicy! Clean malts of medium sweetness and a finish that is bitter but not scathing, ending cleanly in a quenching way. This is an aptly named IPA-- I could definitely drink this all day in the summer sun (or anytime really, who’s kidding who).
