This is a great beer for the price. I bought this for $6.99 a six pack and it is delicious. Pours a little light, but the taste is rich. Half inch of head. Hops are apparent with the first sniff and the taste is excellent. I found a new ’everyday beer.’

BeardedAvenger (129) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2016
On tap at Rose & Thistle, Frimley Green. Pleasant aroma - floral, grassy, sweeter than expected. Deep gold. Loses points for a weak head. Initially sweet before the hops come through. Medium bodied and smooth. Bitter long finish, which is slightly chalky. Grapefruit, with honey or similar underneath. I enjoy.

Bottle from Hy-Vee. Mildly sweet IPA with nothing very distinctive to it. It’s ok.

thepatrickman (778) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Simple, straightforward APA -- it reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada, with it’s moderately-light Cascade hop flavor.
