Pale golden color out of the bottle with a thin off white head. Fresh pine and apricot nose. Big pinching grapefruit juice, pine and orange peel flavors. A little thin for the style but a very flavorful and drinkable beer.

Light amber with an orange tint. Floral nose with some lemony hints. Medium bodied, citrus heavy IPA. This shows a good mix of herbal minty flavors with some soft hop bite. Medium length finish. Refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle: pours a clear bright golden with a thin-lacing wispy white head. Has a fresh resinous hoppy nose with some dank pine and a touch of lightly toasted malts. Starts with average fullness and mild sweetness with some faint huskiness and lots of fresh juicy hop flavor and good bitter balance. Easy drinking and refreshing without being flavorless.

Pint on tap. Hazy golden with a quarter inch of cream. Pleasant resin and caramel toast aromas. Flavor is more of the same with big resin and light grapefruit finish. Light-medium body is watery, drinkably hop-tingly and dry, and has medium carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. From the bottle so no pour this time. Aromas of caramel, pine, citrus rind, and a slight floral note. Flavor is full of piney/citrusy hops. The body is light and finishes smooth. This reminds me of a Sumpin’ Light. Thanks much Lag!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($2.25): Pours a copper with a nice white head. Aroma is citus, resin, and a bit of pine. Malt backbone is light, but substantial enough not to be watery. Hoppiness is moderate and well-varied. The beer is nice and sessioable and could probably be drank at any time (I drank it at 3 in the morning, so I violated the spirit of the beer).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured bright gold. Very strong oily grapefruits and pine hop nose. Then things start to unravel, way to thin, unbalanced hop to malt. No support from the malts. Almost undrinkable. This didn’t work for me.
