Draft - Light grapefruit notes. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Light flowery grapefruit and a light bitter finish. Nice and light.

12 oz. can from DrSilverworm - thanks, Chris! Pours a pretty much clear bright gold with a small white head that leaves a few spots and a ring, and settles into a film. The aroma is initially light here; citrus, florals, and grass, mostly. Gets a little juicier as it warms. The flavor picks up the same notes, but more pronounced, along with a little bit of sweet malt and tropical fruit juice. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation and a very clean mouthfeel. Nice session IPA.

"Dig the style, excited to try this newb in a can. Light almost watery body, which fresh aromatic hops can overcome, but this didn’t have that. Biscuit malt, low citrus, weak aroma, tasted old. Date your bleeping product!"

Tap at Fiddlers.

Gold clear pour. Strong tropical fruit in the aroma, slighly sharp but not at all aggressive bitterness in the flavor. An enjoyable ISA.

Another solid ISA - straightforward middle hop road with a bit of tropical fruit and malt. Pleasant bitter end, and quite sessionable.

AWISLguy (1468) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Can from Brennans. Pours a clear golden orange with a with head leaving a lot of stringy lace. Aroma has pineapple, citrus and pine. Taste is of grapefruit, lemon zest, some pine and some light biscuity malt. Medium bodied and somewhat sticky. Finishes more bitter than sweet, and somewhat fruity. A tasty solid sessionable brew! 14.2

Can. Initially light but with bitter finish. Easy drinking, and refreshing. Good stuff. Nice.

Ughsmash (7203) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Canned. Poured clear medium golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up lemon zest and peppery hops over caramel and pale bready malts.. simple and inviting. The flavor found juicy lemon and grapefruit over a fairly weak caramel base.. hoppy and bitter on the refreshing finish. Light-bodied with just the right amount of substance.. crisp and enjoyable.

Very nice. Think flavorful lager with a bit of a hoppy kick. For what it wants to be, one of the better ones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nitro draft. Pours a golden color. All hops on the aroma. Really nice hop flavor. Nothing overwhelming. This is a near perfect session ale. Loved it.
