3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce can. A big fluffy white head. The beer is very clear light golden and has a bit of carbonation floating up. The aroma is full of pineapples and tropical fruit. Just a bit of dry bitterness is tasted first. Grapefruit slowly builds and is dominant but never big. Malts are soft. A tad bit of pepper. Pineapple is tasted late. This beer is a little light on the flavor but what is tasted is nice. Also, I like the low ABV.

[Bottle] Darker golden color with a soapy white head. Potent citrus and dank hop aroma is inviting. Tasting notes include citrus, fruit, grass, lemon and floral hops. Milder pale malts round out the flavor. Nicely balanced. A nice brew overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear bright golden with a respectable fluffy white head. Aroma is pine and grapefruit. Sweet pale malt taste with some grapefruit that finishes on the bitter side for a pale ale versus an IPA. Well balanced and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, pale yellow-straw color, with a light tan head. Light citrus notes, some even lighter pine notes, some tropical fruit sweetness. Slightly to moderately bitter, followed by a mellow, round sweetness. Light bodied, very effervescent; lively carbonation along with some acidity. Very clean on the palate. Almost no alcohol. Exceptionally pleasant and drinkable, very well balanced. This would be a great summer session beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear yellow color, with mild carbonation and decent lacing. Aroma of floral hops, yeasts, toffee sweetness and pale malts. Flavor is roughly the same but with a resiny like aftertaste. Body is light and so is the carbonation. Very drinkable and tasty APA.

No doubt for the great ratings on this brew. A bit thin but big on taste really well balanced with a nice aroma and taste of citrus. Not overly hopped as one expects in an IPA but complements the smooth malt. Excellent brew
