COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp golden ale is built on the foundation of delicate light malts. This allows us to showcase some of the most interesting and effervescent American hops in a way we have never before done. We saved over 75% of the hops used in this recipe to add after the batch was boiled, allowing the distinct fragrance of grapefruit, apricot and pine to be preserved as much as possible in the finished beer. With a crisp, but subtle bitterness, a refreshingly light malt character, and a 4.5 ABV, this is the perfect warm weather beverage for those who think flavor is just as important as refreshment.

Draft. Poured a cloudy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop and soft malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a friend as a session beer.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Sample at Pint House during a tap takeover. Cloudy dark golden color with a medium foamy white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, toasted malt and citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

355ml bottle. For once I could appreciate an upland ipa. This one works as a sessioner.

12oz bottle. Bottled May 2013. Clear golden color. Good one-finger thick kind of pillowy white head. Splotchy lace. Lighter body. Smooth, soft lighter carbonation. Some grassy, lightly lemon-citrusy hops. Light wheaty, bready malt. Light bitter taste, light sweet. Satisfying session ale.

Looks alright; light for an APA though. A transparent light gold with ample fluffy white head. Smells solid; bitter hops with a semi-sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with. An average mouthfeel. Not bad.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 12, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated semi-transparent yellow colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was bubble gum malty and musty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of mildly bitter wheat and mild hops. An OK brew just nothing special.
