Bottle courtesy of rpstevens. Served in a Bruery tulip.
Pours a clear light golden color with an average white head that leaves behind just a bit of lacing. The nose has a bit of light malt and light hops. Mostly floral for the latter. A bit of citrus in there as well. The flavor runs along the same lines with some floral and citrus hops. Light body with average carbonation. Slight bitterness in the finishing. Pretty good; a nice mild.

Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Mild resin aromas. Thin with sweet hay and caramel upfront turning to bitter grapefruit pith in the lasting finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pours a cloudy copper color with a one-finger white head. The aroma is nicely big and hoppy for the low ABV. Great citrusy hop profile with biscuit and honey malt notes. The flavor is also very hoppy. Citrus - orange and lemon - dominate, with a considerable earthy note. Slight sweet pale malt, biscuit, and honey to back it up, but overall this is like a poor manís Ballast Point or Alpine session pale, or Stone San Diego Session Ale. True to the west coast hoppy beer style, except itís from New Hampshire. Great light palate with good carbonation and assertive hop resins. Really enjoyed this one overall. Could session this easily.

Missed this on tap, but grabbed a bottle. Man, I wasnít expecting to like this, but this really is the ultimate session beer. Golden brown. Light and dry in the mouthfeel, with a tart citrus zing behind a biscuity/honey malt. Light sweetness, moderate bitterness, just pleasant on the tongue. Would like this on tap or cask.

Sampled at GABF! Light golden pour produced a small white head. Aroma of biscuit, honey, and hops. Flavor is similar...very sessionable. Pretty refreshing, especially after all of these heavy hitters!

Amber copper pour with a moderate offwhite head. Aroma is a bit biscuity with some light caramel malt and grass. Mouthfeel is smooth, light, very drinkable, a perfect session ale. Flavor is lightly bitter with some subtley sweet caramel toasted malt ballancing out the bitterness. really nice session ale

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle courtesy of cletus, thanks a ton man! pours a nice hazy amber with a nice creamy head, 2 finger, that has good retention and great lacing. aroma is some bitter hops, some stinky cheese, but still very pleasant. the flavor is a godd, balanced ipa, but very, very light and easy. this would be a great converter for a macro drinker, really light yet proper flavor. i gave the palate 5 on this one. it drinks like water, just disappears. nice and full upfront, yet nor obtrusive, and super, super smooth. i like!
