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.

It pours the same yellow gold as American adjunct lagers, maybe just a shade darker. Thereís no real head, no lace, and not much to distinguish the presentation. The smell is actually slightly bad. It reminds me of babyfood peas. The taste is a little bit better. Itís like someone figured out a way to hop water. There is no real flavor other than the hops, and the twang at the finish of the sip is kinda beer-like, but I wonít have this again. Itís not aimed at me, anyway.

camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Classic citrus and pine nose. First off I get that this is a session beer, but while very drinkable I just donít think it is anything special. Balanced yes but muted also. Could drink many of these? Yes . Would I want to? No

KyotoLefty (6642) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle from Yamaichi. Clear bright golden with a low head. Clean, soft citrus hop nose, lemon, grapefruit. Light toasty malt,mnice hop flavors, grapefruit sorbet, very clean, nicely bitter finish. Very well made to do as designed, be a light and refreshing seesion beer. Good stuff.

Mittenator (1380) - Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Not a big fan of this session beer trend. However, this is the best version I've found. Floral hoppy flavors (along with the aroma which initially is great) quickly dissipate and the body is thin. I'm sure I could drink a bunch in a row. Not sure I'd want to.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle. Pale yellow color. Thin white foamy head. Aroma of flowers and esters, with a bit of citrus and clove. Flavor was lightly hopped, but clearly defined in its spice and pine layers. Not overpowering. I see what they were getting at with this brew. It works well for me, as I do not like too much hops. Light body, but not too light on flavor. If you love hops, this is weak, if you just like hop flavor, but not the kick in the face, this one is for you.

Bottle sample at a tasting at LiBira Pub in Haifa. Thanks DSG. Pours yellow with a nice head, aroma of litchi, orange, onion, lemon, flavor is slightly bitter with lemon grass, light fruits, melon, refreshing with some herbal hops, medium bodied, nice

HeistAlmighty (1145) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - FEB 5, 2013
355ml bottle. Clear gold colour, moderate white head. Looks more like a decent lager than an IPA. Aroma holds up to full strength IPAs, pine, grapefruit and a little grass clippings. Taste is lighter than the smell, the hops are there but donít really come in until the end. Body is on the watery side. Overall, if light IPA was a thing, this would be a good one. Depends on if you think that is a good idea.

obguthr (4021) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Strong aroma of lilles and grapefruit, approaching that of pine needles, despite it being several months old. Clear amber, medium head, sticky lacing. Nice floral hoppping with just light citrus compliment. Lillies in the finish. Light mouthfeel. Immensely sessionable, quaffable, and flavorful. Fantastic crafting.

RSRIZZO (1868) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 38į. Color is a bright pale gold with good carbonation and a fizzy head. Aroma is a big citric hop scent. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is just hops, big fruity citrus and pine. After is more citrus and some bitterness. Overall, its not the best, the citrus overpowers everything.
