Pours a very light amber color with a bready off white head. Notes of cat pee, and white grapefruit. Thin mouthfeel and clean finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ap - 5 - super big billowy white head that sticks forever on this guy and leaves lots of lacing, clear straw colored beer.
Ar - 7 - lemony, spicy, floral aroma coming from this one.
T - 7 - bitter for sure, but mostly floral hops, with some lemon and peppery notes in there too. It reminds me of a homebrew recipe called cream of three crops, made with williammette and crystal.
P - 4 - extra light, knocked it for losing significant malt backbone. Alc non-existant, aftertaste is floral, grassy hops
O - 3.75 - I’ll have to check the bottling date but its too floral and earthy, and also missing the malt backbone.

It has a big hop nose, full of pine and grapefruit, but the taste falls short of the nose. Coats the tongue nicely with a light bitterness. I like it.

Nice floral hoppy grapefruit aroma. Flavor is light, almost slightly wheat beer like (this version was on cask), but very refreshing and solid for a session ipa. Maybe slightly prefer Founders all day ipa. Maybe slight watery palate so loses a point for that.

Does his skin fall off or something? I don’t want to replace the bedding. Just get him out. .. Gold amber .. Medium foam in your jacket .. . Hops: for your session pleasure .. . Why are you breathing on me?! .. . Easy and giddy to drink to drink to drink .. . A great example of this rising style .. . . Now, if you will excuse me, I have to not speak to you people any longer. Thank you.

Solid IPA -- there is so much flavor in it. Puts other session beers to shame with fully-formed hop flavors of grass, lemon, apricot and pine. Nice backing malts, not sweet and not dry, with a dusky day’s-work-done malt backbone.

Pours golden with white frothy head. Smell is grapefruit citrus hops. Taste is dry and quite hoppy flavored without huge bitterness or a syrupy sweet backbone. Like a hop tea. A bit earthy. Very easy drinking and flavorful. Perfect full body and very crisp carbonation. Good stuff.

A- Pours a light yellow hue with a small head that fades quickly with some lacing.
S- Citrus, bready.
T- Floral, citrusey hops all the way through with a lingering hop bitterness.
M- Medium bodied and effervescent.
D- Amazingly drinkable. I will keep this in the normal rotation as a session beer.
