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.

LtDan (1805) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Appearance: Pours a straw gold with a modest soapy cap of white foam. Holding it up to the light, you will notice some very active rising bubbles in the clear body.

Aroma: Beautiful big citrusy danky nose, fresh grass. Pretty close to opening a pack of hop pellets. Some candied orange too as it warms.

Taste: A punch of citrusy hops, very dry pale malt, a little earthy hop bitterness that finishes very clean. Medium duration for the lingering hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Thin and on the high side in terms of carbonation.

Overall: Amazingly tasty and drinkable. A beer this small can show some flaws, and I’m glad to report there are none.

mjg74 (2695) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle from Plaid Pantry. Light golden straw in color. Nose is sort of sweet with tropical fruit notes, followed by some more pungent bitterness. Good and bitter throughout. The body is a little lacking. Pretty tasty sessional brew.

kramer (5329) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear light yellow gold body with a one finger frothy white head that had nice retention. The nose is dank and citrusy hops with a minimal malt impact. Smells pretty delicious. The flavor is well balanced between the hop flavor and bitterness level. If tastes equally dank and hoppy as it smells. Perfect minimal malt impact on the flavor, just a bit of clean bready maltiness. Light bodied and very easy drinking with soft fizzy carbonation. Good drinker.

tfontana (63) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 11, 2015
Bottle from Epsom Circle Market, Epsom NH. Aroma is hoppy with grapefruit and pine. Appearance is hazy, pale greenish yellow--looks like a cross between a Hefeweizen and, I don’t mean to be gross, urine. Head is negligible white with moderate retention and no lacing to speak of. Taste is balanced moderately bitter and sweet. It’s right at the threshold of my hop tolerance so it OK by me but probably more loved by acolytes of the style. Palate is light bodied, slightly oily texture with lively carbonation that lights up the front and side of the tongue. Finish is long, dry and mildly bitter at back roof of the mouth and upper jaw.

Hermod (3905) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 10, 2015
355ml bottle. Golden color, thin white head. Gooseberries, fresh, fruity aroma. Flavor has gooseberries, citrus, kiwi. Nice bitterness. Thin body. Nice session beer.

jrodooo5 (1154) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 8, 2015
Clear golden pour w/ a retaining foamy white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is of sweet & citrus hops. The flavor is quite clean until a nice hop bitterness towards the end. It’s medium bodied but light & certainly sessionable as there is no dryness in the aftertaste. Pretty good!
