Pale gold pour with thick frothy head. Nose is huge citrus hops. Hops ate fainter on taste and fade back nicely. Faint maltiness and pine. Nice easy drinker

The beer has a medium yellow color with a nice head. The aroma is like an IPA with pine and flowers. The taste is a little tart and light. I was expecting a little more but it seemed to be missing something to give it a full flavor. There was some apples and herbs but fell off quick. Medium finish.

A - Pours a clear golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit and pine hops with some sweet caramel and biscuit malts.
T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit and citrus hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine and grassy hops come through with some more bitterness and some biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of sweet biscuit and caramel malts with grapefruit and pine hops and some bitterness.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice sessionable IPA with a good hop profile and hop and malt balance.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma on this is very hoppy with plenty of floral character. Also has some lemon character, too. Not much in the way of malt aroma. Transparent golden body with a rocky, white head that is pretty strong. Starts with a bit of an astringent hop bitterness. Some lemon character. Light toasty cereal malt flavors come through in the middle, before this finishes mildly bitter with floral and lemon flavors. A nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice, crisp, pine and citrus aroma with light doughy malts. The flavor is fairly dry and lightly bitter. The hopping is nice, with plenty of citrus. Malts are a bit dull. Very enjoyable beer overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle-purchased at Davidson liquors in Littleton, CO SEP 2012-pours bright clear lite orange with a small soapy white head. Doesnt look like anything special yet is clear and clean. nose is bigtime hops-lots of green onion, spice, citrus (grapefruit), tangerine, and some medicinal notes and a hint of cheese. smells like a big beer, for such a small beer. flavors exhibit all the above characteristics but delivered in a beer that i can slam at anytime! If there were a Light IPA, this would be it. One of the best session beers i have ever had! I wish i had more of this stuff! A bit pricey ($10 or so for a 6pk), but definately solid beer! Reminds me somewhat of the summer love from Victory. hard to beat a low abv ipa like this!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bought a sixer after a small sample at the bottle shop. Very similar to the similarly themed Founders All Day IPA. Nose is nice, lots of citrus, tropical fruits, light resins and light caramel. Flavor is okay at first, but the hops get more and more resinous as you drink it, onion/garlic notes creep in, lots of herbal bitterness bodering on astringent. Shows promise, but falls a little short. Still, i like the trend.

A golden body with a thin white coating for a head which did not last long. A slight presence of carbonation. Aroma had a nice toasted malt note to it hops were slightly bitter and slightly grassy. Flavor had a nice mild malt base, mostly cereal grains hops were bitter which at times seemed astringent. Mostly soft flavors Carbonation was slightly elevated. Decent beer

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from BevMo: Poured a crystal clear golden liquid with a frothy topping of head. Nose is decked with oily green hops and smells as if this was meant to be a wet hop IPA. The same can’t be said about the flavor though since it is less tame than the aroma lead me to believe with only a pinch of hops. The malts and the hops do balance each other making this somewhat tasty session ale.
