Sample pour from 12 oz bottle is bright yellow and effervescent with ivory head. Prominent dry-hopped aroma that is citrusy, probably Cascade. Approachable malt backbone that is pale with minimal crystal). Crafted in body, malt levels and hop flavor, bitterness like a hoppy pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Botttle purchased through Liquid Solutions
Appearance: yellow with a light brown hue. Loads of lacing and retention on the 2-3 finger off white crown.
Smell: Good mellow hop note (kinda like a fresh hop ale) but nothing else really.
Taste: A nice hoppy zesty intro parlaying towards a sweet pale malt middle and a slightly bitter and slightly sweet end. Not very extreme but a good session taste.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied to med/light bodied with plenty of carbonation. Not bad so that means its good!
Drinkability: 6.50% abv and an easy to approach mouthfeel makes this a session beer to me.
In a world of extreme beers this one gets buried and forgotten. But if you are in the mood for a lightly hoppy easy to drink IPA this one is for you!
Serving type: bottle

A pretty good offering. Has a nice malty backbone and a nice blend of hops, but not the crisp cleanness I’d expect from a pale ale. Still refreshing. Huge amounts of carbonation though.

On draft in a pint glass. Pours a reddish amber with a off white head and decent lacing. Aroma is grass, caramel, and light citrus. Taste is light grapefruit and orange flavors. Also some fresh summer lawn. Mouthfeel is light and slightly sticky. Pretty sessionable.

Bottle at a friend’s house. Very nice, sweet taste, slight bitter aftertaste. Worth revisiting.

Pours a cloudy orange. Nice aroma of grapefruit/citrus. Not all that much going on with the taste. Some of the grapefruit comes through, but it is a pretty simple, easy drinking beer

It poured a cloudy, golden color with a tight bubbled white head that faded quickly. It had a pleasant, fresh earth aroma. It seemed light bodied, lighter than I would expect from an IPA. The hop/ malt balance was good, but both were light. Slight hop aftertaste

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a definite hazy golden orange color with a nice just slightly off white head. Aroma is sweet, slight pine, resinous and slightly dank. Non descript citrus as well. Taste is citrus pine up front. Beautiful toasty biscuity sweet malt in the middle that finishes with a nice spicy citrus note that fades into a mild pine bitterness. Really solid stuff. Body is nice, definitely medium and for a 5% ABV beer, that’s awesome.

Decent, but not great. Very smooth, but lack flavors. Nice grassy aroma with hops and citrus notes. Would have like a little more bite...
