4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2014 On tap at the brewery. The best one I had that day. Really good IPA. Very drinkable while still being packed full of hops and flavor.
Edit: After having many times since my first time I had to give a reedit. This time specifically was a growler from Pete’s Place and I put down the whole thing. It pours a somewhat fogged golden color with a light fuzzy white head. Light lacing left on the glass. A light film settles on the top like an oil but gives a good look. A nice fresh hop aroma comes bursting out. Very fruity almost sugary. The taste matches the smell in a great way. A nice fruity hop bitterness that isn't overpowering. Just enough to leave the hop notes lingering on the tongue to leave you wanting more. Absolutely drinkable and quenching. Such a nice brew. Great stuff by Kuhnhenn as always.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured on-tap at Frankenmuth’s World Expo of Beer.
Appearance: DRIPA. A pale yellow color without much head or lacing.
Smell: DRIPA. ... just less pronounced. Very pleasant fruity hop aroma. Very inviting.
Taste: DRIPA ... just watered down. Even Kuhnhenn’s description of this beer says something along the lines of, "if you want the taste of DRIPA to last all day." or something like that. Truthfully, that’s what this tastes like. DRIPA’s a great beer ... watered down DRIPA is a good beer, but it gives that... excuse me for this... WATER aftertaste. The taste just falls off at the end. The nice little linger that DRIPA has is what makes that beer so great. This is what it is ... DRIPA Light. If anyone wants to tell you it’s a different recipe besides less flavor, they’re wrong.
Given the ABV, this is a brilliant beer. Somewhat lazy of Kuhnhenn to do what they did with Fluffer, but it’s worlds better than many other craft brews that are <5% ABV.

Draft pour at the end of GTMW 2013. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Really hoppy and fruity. Grass, herbs, melon, sweet malts, peach, and a hint of citrus. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a refreshing, clean mouthfeel. Great session IPA.

Had a very offsetting taste. Soapy or medicinal. I can’t quite put my finger on it. Probably wont get it again. They have much better IPA options.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. A light blurry golden one with a small lacing off-white head. Nice sweet aroma, something reminding me of honey, light grassy, fruit peaches and some mango. Really nice non extreme aroma. Yeah, could drink lots of this in one session. Light oily on the mouthfeel with a average small bubbly carbonation level. Well bitter, really peachy on the hop profile. Poff, the glass is empty. Went quite fast.. A good sessional one. 04.05.2013

On tap at Ashley’s Ann Arbor. Pours a clear bright light gold with a white head. Light herbal grassy hop aromas. Flavor is hoppy grassy, herbal, resinous pine, with no real malt flavors. This is a rather good pale ale.
