COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bold, blonde American IPA employs a healthy dose of wheat malt and generous amounts of Crystal, Centennial, and Citra hops. The hops provide a great citrusy bouquet and abundant notes of grapefruit and orange, while the wheat malt provides a crisp tartness to this lighter-bodied IPA.

Smell of fruit, orange peel. Golden colour, white head. Aroma of hops, spruce, grapefruit. Medium bitter. Semi-flat carbon. Mid-light body, slightly watery palate. Finishes with hops and a faint of spruce. A good basic IPA, but quite nonsurprising.

Bottle at home. Pours a clear bee golden. Aroma is pine with some citrus. Slightly malty taste also. Some floral. Very nice beer. Very refreshing on a hot Sunday afternoon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alexanderj (3339) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle; poured a copperish color with a smallish white head. Aroma of pine, earth and citrus. Lighter bodied and quite drinkable. Hopped fairly well with citrus, earth and maybe some pine notes. Good beer

artmcd8 (1792) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours a clear pale yellow with a full white head. Citrusy floral aroma but not too big. Taste is slightly bitter. Medium body and medium carb.

Gription79 (2311) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. This is harsh and astringent. Grainy, husky, very little hops character for an IPA. The hops are grassy and herbal. Some alcohol heat in the finish.

I have had three awful beers today. This better redeem things. Appearance: beautiful! Huge fluffy finger-length head that lasts on and on and leaves lots of fluffy lacing. 5! If nothing else, I can at least admire this oneís look. Smell: a little harsh. Lemon zest, pine, sharp. Citrus. Taste: lemon zest, citrus, bitter. Bitterness blends in with the malts at the end for a great mix and powerful, memorable finish. The palate is also exquisite - mouthfeel is rich and complete without feeling overly full. Very nice. Thank goodness - I thought I made my worst beer run ever. Well, I still probably did, but at least it wasnít a total loss. This is actually one of the better IPAs Iíve had, other than the aroma.

thegreenrooster (3304) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Pour is a clear amber with a average white head. Aroma is a nice hop with a little caramel malt. Flavor is again a decent hop with a little sticky malt in the backround. A decent IPA but also nothing extraordinary.

On draft. Aromas of toffee and honey. Flavor of toffee, piney hops, toasted finish. Not sure how itís summery, but itís damn good.

ZacM612 (216) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Pale amber color, with a little frothy white head. Aroma of hops, mostly citrus. Flavor is also citrus, hops and bitterness are not overpowering. Okay for a beer from Jayhawkland.
