2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has high hopes as they just entered this market.. This pale was stale tasting. Definitely not bright and alive flavors. Minimal citrus or pine.. Aroma and taste were lacking big . Clean tastes were not there but to me tasted off. Rubbe/ plastic?But I assume this I'd fresh as they just entered the Chicago market. I'll pass on peepers next time.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Ginger Man NYC. Clear pale orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and roast malt. Light-bodied with flavors of floral hops, tropical fruit and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Keg at Atwood’s. Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head, and moderate lacing. Buckets of citrus, super ripe tropical fruit, light caramel on the nose. Light sweetness, and big citric hop bitterness. Delicious flavour. No body at all, nice carbonation with a citric finish. Cracking light ipa.

Bottle to glass. Pale yellow pour topped with a thick foamy white head. Nose is a nice balanced bitter malt with some pine and citrus. Some yeast sneaks in. Taste is malty bittersweet with a mild fruity hop finish. Clean and crisp.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes. On tap at Great Lost Bear. Consumed March 26, 2012.
The appearance was a clear light golden colored body with a decent amount of carbonation heading towards the top. The lacing was spotty and ringy. When the bartender gave the beer to me, there wasn’t any head whatsoever.
The smell had mainly citrus backed up by some pine. The hops are pretty balanced throughout.
The taste was the pine and citrus hops with a slight bit of a grassiness.
On the palate, she sits about a light to medium, is fairly sessionable, crisp, sweet clean aftertaste and finish. She was slightly watery at times but at other times had a moderate amount of harshness, weird but no complaints.
Overall, this is an excellent choice of a beer. Its good for the style and good for me, however this could be close to an AIPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 650 ml. bottle dated 10-03-13. This is bottle fermented so the golden-yellow pour has a haze to it along with a lacing cream to off-white colored head. This has a nice hop character mingling with the toasted grain and biscuit malts. The hops are bit more forward reminding me a bit of an IPA. Light to medium body. The flavor has a keen toastiness to it but the citrus character brings itself forward more so in the flavor than on the nose.

I was a little hesitant about buying this beer. It has such a simple label and almost zero explanation on the bottle. But am I glad that I picked it up. This is an amazing light ale. Super light golden color with a sweet sweet smell of hops. With the first sip your mouth explodes with hoppy and citrus flavors. Its a very well rounded flavor, with sweet, bitter deliciousness. For such a light colored beer it has way more character than meets the eye. It goes down smoothly, and doesn’t leave any bitter or dissatisfying after taste. This is a beer that anyone can enjoy, anytime, anywhere. And is something that you just know you’ll end up drinking more than you expected because its so damn good. I highly recommend this beer to all you avid beer drinkers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Binnys Lincoln Park (Chicago, IL). Finally stopped and grabbed something from Maine. Pours a golden orange hue, fiery glow, a bit dulled in the middle. Grainy harvest hues, mellow haze, cakey offwhite head sits atop prominently. Good stick around, firm cakey crown with decent lacing. Aromas are soapy and citrus, distinct pungent lemon rind and fruit, florals and nice summery grass. Gentle cracked grain, clean bread and nice florals stack, a touch powdery and soapy. As it settles, a bit of staleness settles out, fresh and earthy hops. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some decent effervescence, carbonation, strike of bitter florals and citrus. Lemony citrus, rind, and florals. Some grass, a bit weedy. The flavors are a bit vibrant, showing some nice florals, soap and gentle doughy malt. Middle is nice citrus rind, oils and florals. A bit dry, the mellow malt body flows around the hop focus, fairly fresh but perhaps lacking complexity. Still, a nice flavor profile, earthy and floral, dry and soapy, the citrusy lemon slant dies out, but the beer itself is already quite nice. Tasty, session worthy, and fairly fresh for the format. While it lacks hop complexity, it’s built well, balanced, fresh and flows well. Nice.
