A nice light hoppy citrus taste. A good brew for a nice spring day. I reminds me more of a Pale ale, but still a good beer.

chinchill (2560) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Consumed at the May 2011 LEAF Festival (from notes). A - Amber with a off-white head S - Exceptional aroma of hoppy citrus. Somewhat floral. Very pleasant and enticing. If only the flavor paralleled the aroma. T - Good flavor, but insufficient hop flavor for an Amer. IPA. M - Mouthfeel of an average pale ale. O- Great aroma and good flavor. Score would be higher if this was classified as a pale ale or had more hops.

Pours amber from a bottle with a medium quick-dissipating head, with some lacing. Aroma is not terribly hoppy like some IPAs, almost closer to a pale ale. Flavor the hops come through, again not overpowering, but strong. Maybe this is what IPAs used to be like? Good beer.

Bottle. Straw color with thin head that dissipates quickly. Malty with grapefruity finish. Smooth, quaffable beer. Could drink a ton of this ice cold in a summer day!

Weak. Mediocre. The label says something about no element of the beer stands out. I concur.

Pours a gold yellow with a cream head that laces the glass. Light hops aroma. Taste is sweet malt with basic hops. Sickly sweet aftertaste and a sticky mouth and throat.

Bebum (409) - - DEC 14, 2014
Light amber with citrine reflections, clear, lasting head with good lacing. Full body, silky texture, bright mouthfeel, good carbonation, avg length. Bittersweet, palate cleansing acidity that makes it a good pair to rich food, Citrus, richly malty, complex hoppy flavors, pleasant and satisfying IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours orange with a small foamy head. Aroma of fruits, pine, citrus and grass. Taste is smooth, watery and slightly fruity with hints of hops. Finish is slightly crisp and malty with some citrusy hops. Quite easy going.
