Case-in-point, Pfriem’s Blonde IPA­— Its refreshing blast of citrus and secret ingredient (sunshine) will have you looking forward to another before even enjoying its just bitter enough­ finish­.

vyvvy (4536) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 10, 2015
On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear yellow with a white head. The aroma is dank and has pale malt, spice and tropical fruits. It has a medium / light snappy body with mild semi-soft carbonation. The flavor starts with dankness, tropical fruit, melon, grapefruit and some pale malt. The finish is heavier and has sharp citrus. Nice IPA.

Salmoniform (1193) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Poured from tap to glass. Straw hue with fizzy white head that dissipated. Aroma is straw, grassy, pine, spicy hop. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a medium hop bitterness throughout. Overall this is a decent brew...but a bit lacking in hop profile for a West Coast IPA.

ACHops (897) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2014
On tap @ Chuck’s CD. Pours bright clear yellow with very thin white head. Aroma is thin pale malt and sharply bitter floral and citrusy hops. Taste is clean lightly sweet pale malt with big earthy grassy, light citrus, lemony hops. Impressively rich and flavorful for such a light beer. Hops are strong but don’t dominate. Not a full-fledged malty IPA, but doesn’t pretend to be either. Very nice.

Jaune-blanche pale avec une mousse moyenne blanche. L’arôme d’agrumes fraîche très fruité. Le goût est pareille. Très bonne!

reebtogi (4573) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Sampled during VCBW 2014 pouring a pale straw color with a small white head leaving decent lacing behind. Aroma is light fruits and citrus with some cereal grains. Taste is a grassy and light citrus hop bitterness with some mild spices and a grainy malt sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. A refreshing and easy to drink IPA.
