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!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Doodler. Thanks, I think?!? Gigantic gusher. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Bretty, tropical fruity, grapefruit, papaya, grass, biscuit, and dough in the aroma. Taste is papaya, mango, pineapple, grass, light weed, biscuit, and bread with a medium bitter finish. Clearly infected, yet somehow it works. Light body with soft carbonation. Pretty tasty, even though it was unintended.

Bottle @ Steve_0, courtesy of Doodler, thanks. Bottle shot off like a Mothefucker. Hazy golden appearance with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is bretty, juniper, and green hoppy. Chewy, twangy flavor. Some plastic and tropical fruits. This one is off but still isn’t bad.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ Brew Pub served in a pilsner glass. Clear gold piss color. Small white head, no lace. Aroma is grainy, slight earthy notes and citrus hops. Taste is pretty much the same. Light to medium body. Average beer, but at least its drinkable. Nothing really interesting here. This is for sure made to keep the masses happy. I can’t really say anything bad about it but with some many other interesting brews at the pub, I don’t ever see ordering another.

Perhaps the lightest ipa I’ve ever had. I was in the mood for something heavy but was pleasantly suprised by this beer drinkability and without sacrificing much on flavor

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A clean light APA with focus on piney hops. Nice thirst quencher
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh (maybe fresh) a few weeks after it was given to me, thanks Scott
The look: Cloudy golden body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is softly hopped with some green pine-needles and a floral component. Taste has a crisp and discreet semi-toasted malt backbone, very dry and crackery, a cross between regular salted crackers and Melba Toasts™. The beer also has a fluffy yeasty presence that actually help creating a fuller mouthfeel sensation. Then the hopping, surprisingly assertive, lots of dry pine-tree, some bitter grapefruits, sharp green pine-needles. Medium intensity bitterness. Not to say this is a hop-bomb, but the hops dominate the discreet malt backbone. I liked this beer, A light body, very clean and crisp. A light body thirst quencher for the bitter piney hops lovers. Nothing special here but I’d still drink gallons of this beer, because I love beer and I don’t care about the studies that say that excessive alcohol consumption causes short term memory loss, it’s just a bunch of wimp scientists who can’t handle beer, I wouldn’t be surprised if next publish a study about excessive alcohol consumption causing short term memory loss. Pffff..
