COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes you want a beer, then you realize how much crap you need to do before you call it a day. This is it. Nicely dosed with Big, Round Hop Flavors and a Toasty Malt Foundation to satisfy your every need. But it still lets you stay in the game to do what needs to be done. Yup.

Pours gold into a shaker. White head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet tropical fruit and resin aromas. Dry with sweet caramel, bread and and papaya upfront turning to resin and grapefruit in the lasting finish.

Golden colour. Aroma is very hoppy (green, piney). Has a sharp citric edge making it a good thirst quencher. Shame that it was too gassy served from the tap.

jgb9348 (4709) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Crisp, very light golden coloured body with a thin, soapy white head and a few bubbles rising up against a pale yellow colour. Aroma of pungent light and grassy hops with some hay, yeast, resin and a bit more citrus notes coming through - but all hops, for sure. Light-bodied; Very mild malts coming through, but a good grassy hop note and a light texture with some herbal, fragrant and perfumey hop flavours. Aftertaste is super light with a bit of yeast, some minor herbs, but mostly very minor, grassy hops coming through with no backbone at all of malt. Overall, pretty disappointed with this after seeing good scores and a very nice smell. Good to see a different take on an IPA, but this hasn’t got a malt backbone at all to stand up to the hops, which fade away after a few seconds - tastes like a bit more hoppy anchor steam. I sampled this twelve ounce, stubby Lagy bottle, purchased from Giant Food in Falls Church (Bailey’s Crossroads), Virginia on 11-October-2012 for US$1.67 sampled at home in Washington on 19-November-2012.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Excellent aroma of fruit hop, grapefruit and wine gums. Frothy white head. Medium carbonation. Thin texture. Bitter finish. Easy drinking summer ale.

Bottle from ABC Liquors in Wesley Chapel. Pours a clear yellow-gold with a white head. Nose is a nice bouquet of floral and piney hops with hints of citrus and mild grass. Flavor is a lighter version of the nose: light malt, some nice citrus burst, and then some grassy and herbal hops. Lingering herbal notes in the finish. Light in body and an interesting session IPA.

radagast83 (4563) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Poured a clear, weak looking yellow color with a lot of carbonation, medium sized white head. Aroma was LOTS of citrus notes, some biscuit malts. Flavor was nice and quite a bit like the aroma, but not nearly as intense. Low ABV is appreciative.

Bottle. Citrus and spice balanced with mild malty sweetness. Pungent. Very light bitter finish. Looking forward to this next summer on the golf course.

Ericular (603) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Pours light yellow with little head quickly fading into thin layer and decent lacing. Aroma is outstanding - every citrus fruit you can imagine. Taste can’t quite live up to the aroma, and has somewhat bitter hops and good malt balance - but overall pretty thin. Still, for a low ABV IPA, it’s very nicely done.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2012
pours a clear orange gold. Fluffy finger of white head. Aroma is citrusy with some notes of resin, lemon, black pepper, skunk, orange. Medium bodied, with notes of biscuit, and a grainy finish. Citrus is less pronounced than on the nose but still present. Overall a nice low-alcohol but full flavored brew that would be nice for lunch on a summer day.

Theydon_Bois (8290) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2012
Tap at Beermongers, Portland - 06/11/12. Lightly hazed light golden with a thin white head that soon clears to the edge. Piney nose with bitter grapefruit. Taste follows nose, citrus, orange pith. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a bitter finsih. Decent.
