3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml can. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head that has fair retention and good lacing. The aroma is grapefruit with a bit of cat piss. The taste is dominated by the grapefruit with more cat piss set in a neutral malt base. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Decent brew, went down very easy too--it really is sessionable.

Several cans shared by GT2 during the rbwg weekend. Thanks bro. These were less than a week old and you could tell. Fantastic hop nose and flavor for a session ipa. Nicely dry without being too overly grassy and herbal as these beers can get.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can shared by GT2 on the bus one day at RBWG. Pours a clear, pale gold with a small white head. Notes of lemon citrus, grass, florals, straw- a hint of pale malt, but really almost no malts at all. So light and clean, it’s almost watery. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Perfect for a super hot day, float trip, or whatever. But there are other session IPAs that have a little more character.

Can shared at RBWG 2014 Late Night tasting - Asheville. Very tasty stuff. Great balance. Plenty of dank hops in here, some grapefruit. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Pithy citrus hop finish, moderate balancing pale malt sweetness. Solid.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big thanks to GT2 for bringing this back to the east coast for me!!! Stunning pale gold pour with a gorgeous light frothy white head. Nose and flavor are both subdued but lovely, with pink grapefruit, tangerine, pine, hay, and lemon. Not quite as juicy and vibrant as I was thinking this might be, but still very good and in the same echelon as Founders All Day, etc. Nicely done.

Can shared at RBWG grand tasting thanks to GT2! Pours a clear yellow with fluffy white head that leaves spotty webbing. Aroma is nice and hoppy, floral and grassy notes with a hint of pine, mild soapiness. Taste follows, clean and easy with a good amount of carbonation. Solid pale ale.

Can shared adamantly by GT2 on the RBWG bus tour. Pours a clear blonde. Aroma is really nice of sweet pineapple cake, flowers, and sage. Flavor has more spruce presence, nice floral notes. Surprising dryness at the end. Quite nice.

You look at the color and think it is a pilsner. Bright yellow color but the hops just come blasting through here. Great wheat and light malt background for the hop bitterness to play in. A great six pack.
