Six-pack from grocery. Pours dark golden/amber with an off-white head, plenty foam settling to lacy bubbles. Citrus aroma with a hint of corn. A touch of sweet to offset a mildly bitter taste, finishing with some lasting bitterness and a hint of citrus. Very nice.

12oz bottle. Pours amber with a foamy off white head. Heavy carbonation. Aroma is of hops, malt, grass, and pine. Taste is of floral hops, pine, and grass. Has a lingering, bitter hop taste. Itís so very grassy. Medium fizzy mouthfeel. Has a decent taste and it drinks easy. Nothing that will blow you away, but it drinks real easy.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours golden/ amber with a white head. Aroma of lemon grass and malt.. Taste is much lighter than I would have guessed from the aroma., Light hops, a bit sweet, but overall a sessionable Pale. Light body, light carbonation.

Keep coming back to see if there's something I'm missing but the 402 IPA just doesn't stand out for me. I would call it a competent, middle it the road IPA that is more crisp, and less bitter than others in this niche, but lacking other qualities that might set it apart.

4/19/15 (Bottle) - Nice golden brown pour, with a generous white pillow head and decent carbonation. Floral aroma with strong hops scent. Taste is bitter and pleasant, distinct hops with a pine and citrus taste. Very dry going down. Overall very good EPA.

Draft. Clear golden color with a small white head. It had minimal aroma but strong hoppy flavor.

12 oz bottle shared by my brother-in-law. Smells like grain, kind of like a cheap mass-produced lager. The taste is better than the aroma, super-bitter pine and citrus rind hops with not enough malt to balance it. Super-dry palate. Not a bad APA, but not exactly a good one. I am definitely glad I only had one of these.

Frank (3224) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2015
This is a nice and easy drinking APA. It is slightly hazed orange w/ a thin head of fine white bubbles. The hop character is surprisingly floral given the varieties used, very lavender-like. This is try, crisp and bitter. Itís a medium bodied brew w/ moderate carbonation. Aside from the floral accent, this doesnít really hold many surprised--not that thatís a bad thing. I could down a sixer of this and thereís plenty of hops and thatís pretty much 100% of what I want from this style.

From tap. Nice frothy white head, copper, color. Yeast, caramel, hints of pine. Light body caramel, bread sweet, slightly dry. Uninspiring.
