Great beer. Now this is what a session beer should be. Great flavor but not overwhelming with the hops. Piney and sticky, truly good.

A steady pour into my IPA glass produces a one-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a bright gold color that shows a pale, yellow-golden hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells quite floral, with lots of citrus notes, backing tropical fruit notes, and a nice, herbal leaning character that gets a touch peppery. The malt character is barely perceptible, with perhaps a hint of cracker like pale grain.

Light bodied, effervescent, and even a touch on the thin side, this makes for a very easy drinking beer that I could likely drink in large quantities. There is a lingering, herbal bitterness here, as well as just a touch of peppery herbal notes. The herbal flavors from the hops are dominant, as the beer is really quite dry, and mutes the juicy hop character that would otherwise be here. The hop-fruit notes here are subtle, with floral / tropical fruit notes, and a touch more citrus character.

Definitely quaffable, but it needs just a bit more clean, pale malt character to help stage the juicy, fruit-leaning hop notes that should be here in the flavor. Still this is enjoyable, and the hop character that is still dominant here is still quite nice.

Bottle sample at Beer & Beyond shop. Clear pale straw with a small white head. Smell - floral, perfume, sulphur, overipe fruit and grainy malt. Sweetish, flavors of lemon zest, herbs, slightly sour with dry bitter finish. Feels old.

If only the flavor matched the aroma! Pours pale gold w/ a big white head & plenty of lacing. The aroma is robust w/ piney hop notes. The flavor falls flat & slightly bland. It finishes quite bitter which doesn’t make it sessionable to me. Mediocre!

rayaron (877) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle sample at Beer and Beyond, Tel Aviv. Very clear light yellowish with small white head. Floral and grainy aroma, a bit yeasty, feels quite old. The flavor is skunky, grainy with notes of lemon and sulfur, a bit sour, lager-ish and watery. Light-bodied. Not fresh at all.

it pours a golden yellow color, but is a bit cloudy. The head doesn’t last that long. It has an aroma of citrus, and a bit of bread. It has a citrus flavor with grass flavors. It is moderately bitter.

Draft at Moriartys. Straw pour with a fizzy/foamy white head. Disippatting lace. Well carbonated. Feels like a slightly sour Pilsner or Kolsch - not an IPA. Yeasty and buttery wheat flavors. Some citrus, grassy and herbal notes. Sage. Dandelion. Lemon thyme. Menthol. A honey lemon cough drop with a semi-dry finish.

Pours a clear yellow at Lady Gregory’s, which by the way is an awesome establishment in Chicago. Aroma is water and alcohol. Flavor is sour for sure. Grapes. Not a fan, asked for a different beer. Comped.
