mansquito (4649) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 29, 2016
From a work event: pours golden orange with a white head. Aroma is light citrus. Taste is lightly bitter. Easy to drink but amply bodied. What it should I suppose.

Light Sweet malty grapefruit smell, lots of floaties...taste is much less hoppy and more smooth than expected... Floral hops, low bitterness, medium flavor, a light IPA...no malt sweetness

Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear pale amber, small head. Citrusy dill aroma. Mid dry with light-medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Hop driven with lychee, grapefruit and dill. Notes of caramel. Balanced bitter finish. Another solid Lakefront offering.

commonmac (819) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Tap at Yardhouse in West End. Pint glass. Early onset effervescence giving way to a pretty clear copper color. Minimal head. Aroma is faint with notes of pine and citrus. Taste is also mild as expected from a session IPA. Good citrus characteristics a base of hoppy resin notes. Bitterness takes over midway through consumption. Oily mouthfeel. Pretty light and bright. Makes you realize this is what you should drink at 4% rather than a Miller Lite.

Fatehunter (1948) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Pours two fingers of head on a clear straw body. The aroma is bright lemon and grapefruit. The taste has a moderate bitterness, the middle is a bit of a crash of bitter and sweet, but still fine. The texture is crisp. Enjoyable.

superspak (3968) - Michigan, USA - AUG 11, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/19/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with great complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, pineapple, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.3%. Overall this is an excellent session IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

drowland (7368) - Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2015
4/17/15. 12oz bottle shared during a VORLAUF meeting, I think. Golden orange pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. Light aroma, grainy, hints at caramel, some citrus and grassiness. Decent flavor, mild bitterness, doughy, citrus, grassy. Not bad.
