3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pale yellow with a nice white fluffy head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, some light tropical fruity notes. Taste is of mild pine citrus hops, grapefruit, some grass and grains and a bit of biscuit malt to round out the flavor profile. Palate is a light medium body, crisp with mild carbonation, plays well on the palate. The finish is pine citrus grapefruit hops, some grass and grains followed by a bit of biscuit malt. Goes down easy. Overall a well made, tasty session IPA for the summer

This great, hoppy but not overwhelming. It's surprisingly light in color and nice and foamy. Very drinkable, you can drain one of these quickly.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle.
Aroma is very hop forward with big citrus and tropical fruit aromas. Lighter notes of stone fruit and resin. Light cracker malt background.
Pours a very clear, yellow gold with a big, thick white head that exhibits above average retention. Fairly high lacing without any legs.
Flavor is slightly sweet with a bit of cracker character. Medium bitterness with a moderately strong hop flavor. Notes of citrus and resin with lighter tropical fruit character. Dry finish.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty nice, easy drinking IPA. I wish the hop flavor matched the aroma more, but this is still a great beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle. Don’t know why the big citrus hop / ocean aroma surprised me. Pale-ish gold with white head. Tasting pine and citrus hops, barley and hay. Dry feel. It is exactly what it says on the bottle - A Fractional IPA.
