Tap at the Lamb. Pours a light gold. Big citrus pine hop aroma. Light clean malt with lots of resiny citrus hop bitterness. Good session brew.

MadRobin (2262) - Silver Spring, USA - APR 24, 2015
On tap at Carpool in Herndon, VA. Clear, golden yellow with an off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of pineapple, lime, white bread, tomato, orange and a hint of peach. Taste of pineapple, floral hops, orange, pine, lime grapefruit and biscuit malt. Medium body and medium carbonation. An interesting beer (OK, that's faint praise) with a nice complex hop profile, but short on balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NikkTwist (1892) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Pint glass. Slightly hazy gold pour with a good of frothy off-white foam. Thick lace. Big hop flavors but still quite smooth. Grassy citrus. Unripe oranges. Green tomatoes. Mango skins. Bitter marmalade on shortbread. Banana peels. Earthy resins. Toffee pudding. Bright hop flavors with some soft medium-light caramel malts. Reasonably balanced.

jgb9348 (4994) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2015
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a hint of copper and a single centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of grass, malt, alcohol, metal and a bit of rice. Light to Medium-bodied; Nice grassy and herbal flavour of hops with a lot of hops and grassy flavours, but not that much malt - closest to a Light IPA in style with a slightly more pungent malt kick near the end. Aftertaste shows a lot of depth with the grassy and herbal hops, some light sugars of agave and a touch of peppery malt near the end. Overall, a nice and flavourful Light IPA that shows a bit al Wine in CD more alcohol (still not really noticeable) than most Light IPAs, but this one is well balanced. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Chantilly, Virginia on 31-January-2015 for U$2,49 sampled at home in Washington on 21-April-2015 a few hours after returning from the south.

Drank at the Electric City Craft Brew Fest!! Pours a clear, golden with lilttle carbonation. Strong aromas of hops and flavor. Not a hug fan.

PhillyBeer2112 (2604) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2015
Not bad. Orange color, modest head. Nose is piney and dank. Dry crackery but full malts, nice peppery resin finish, not overly balanced, crisp and snappy with a lemon-rind finish.
