Darwenus (529) - Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2014
Not bad. Pours yellow/orange, not much head. The aroma is mild grassy hops and malt, and that’s the flavor, too. A little more burn in the finish than I expected.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2014
On tap at East Nashville Beer Festival 2014. Very peachy aroma and smell. Very easy to drink and low alcohol. This has to be a fan favorite on hot summer days. One dimensional but enjoyable.

EricTeusink (657) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2014
The hippy aesthetic of the marketing is a little cheesy. I wasn’t expecting much from the brew, but found it up to snuff for it style. Pours a slightly hazy light burnt orange with white head. Scent is what really turned my head. Fresh citrus abounded. Flavor is the mild bite to mild sweet one expects from and APA. Good little beer. Won’t seek it out, but won’t turn it down. Bottle - Dakota Blue - Decatur, GA

Draft at the DC Craft Beer Festival. Poured a clear light golden yellow color with a small white head. Aroma was notes of pine and citrus, biscuit malt notes. Flavor was crisp and clean malts, with a nice amount of tropical and citrus fruits. Pretty enjoyable and easy to drink.
