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.

Man this is really good IPA... Looks wise.... it looks like a light lager. You can see straight through. Decent little head, that quickly faded. Smells great. Piney, fruity, mango, pineapple, lots of tropical fuits. Taste even better.... lots of tropical fruits, mango, pineapples with a nice light grass taste. Really light fluffy body, clean and crisp. Way to easy to drink. Overall: Reminds me of zombie dust. Great brew! Wish I had this on draft or fresh bottles in the summer. Bottle picked up at SL

So incredibly light in color! Yellow with white head. Great, great nose--beautiful hops. But the flavor is still a one-trick IPA pony, just as the distributor said (he used the "one-trick pony" phrase, in fact). (at Ale Jail Anniversary Party 2014)

12 ounce bottle from The Beer Trappe. Light body and color. Then comes the big hop oil. Total hop oil. Big tasty session IPA.

MaBeer1972 (1328) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Single bottle from Julio’s. It’s a clear light grassy yellow color with a medium white head that settles to a thin lace. Bright herbal-citrus aromas and flavors. Clean drinking. Thin body. Lemony in the middle with a lingering light bitterness.

Une ipa bien résineuse et coniféreuse dilluée vers une session très juteuse et peu amère. Buvabilité massive.

Had it on tap at Lagunitas taproom in Chicago. Pours a light clear orange hue with a thin white head. Tangy pilsner like taste. Above average abv beer.

hfmejias (731) - Dover, Delaware, USA - SEP 27, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Light yellow, clear, small white head and spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and citrus fruits. Taste is hoppy, with a nice lemon notes, malty in the background. Easy to drink, very enjoyable.

wedgie9 (1990) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Tasted on 9/27/14 from a growler from Craft Brewed. Pours clear straw with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average, even white lace, leaving some thin lace along the inside of the glass. The nose is light toasty bread malt with plenty of lightly herbal and floral citrus hops. The flavor is very nicely balanced, more floral with just a bit of bitterness, nothing terribly abrasive, and the same lightly toasted bread malt from the nose. The body is light with average carbonation and a medium lightly bitter floral hops finish.

BLADT (627) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle pour. Clean, pale lemon color. Large bubbled white head that persists. Dear god, that is a dank nose. I’ve shoved my nostrils into bags of fresh hops at and received less olfactory sensation. Damn. Taste does not disappoint following that aroma. Pine and grapefruit, mild grass. Thin mouthfeel. Little attention paid to malts, thought notes of dough and toast do present. A fun little hop bomb. Dank to its core.

Lukaduke (2218) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a clean medium golden color with two fingers of white foam. Lots of bright tropical citrus hop notes, some dank pine and rustic toasted malt backbone. Clean focused and the malt character integrates nicely with the hop profile. Nice bitterness on the finish.

12oz bottle shared. Poured a bright golden yellow with white head. Nice pine and citrus nose. Flavor for a session is pretty standard but this one has a nice smooth malt with the nose of the hops but not all the bitterness you would expect. Overall very pleased.
