"Tasty crack cans." There’s a lot I like about this beer, but I felt a little let down in the taste department.
I love the concept - a hop forward session beer in a can. In fact, I made an IPA which accidentally turned out very low gravity but had plenty of hop wallop. And that experience led me to be a touch disappointed with this beer. It is quality, looking good and tasting good, and it achieves its mission of a tasty, sessionable beer. However, I would’ve liked a little more flavor and specifically a little more bitterness and hop character. It’s there, but sort of indistinct bitterness...would love a beer like this with more late addition to hops to bring out pine/citrus/etc.
I liked this beer, and would buy it again, but more than anything it has fired up my homebrewing imagination.
Can at GABF. Pours a cloudy gold with medium off white head that lasts. The aroma is citrus, biscuit, resin. Medium body, citrus, caramel, light bitterness, good. woodychevy (874) - - MAY 16, 2016
Six pack cans at home. Now called Down to Earth. Really tasty- like a subdued and classier version of the massive ipa’s that are taking over the taps. Pine and citrus (grapefruit, orange) mostly- medium bodied with a crisp finish. Somewhat bitter but not overly so. Well balanced. At 4.4 and unassuming I happily had a second. May drink this one all summer. crossovert (12874) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2016
355ml can. Old rate. This is a shitty session if there ever was one that is all i have to say. Beerdedone (3401) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Can. Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and floral hops. Flavor of pine, citrus, grapefruit, floral, caramel and grass with a crisp dry finish. a tasty session beer andrewje41 (3874) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2015
12 oz can poured. I always love the artwork on the cans from these guys. Very tasty beer here. Pours a cloudy orange color with a ton of head and lace. Sweet grapefruit like aroma. Full of flavor for such a light session. Juicy mango and citrus. Delicious session. Loved it.

Very nice pale ale. Cool monkey in a space suit on the can. Grapefruit notes. mfhennig (285) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Thanks Jerry! Nice orange color, off-white head. Good citrus hop aroma with some malt. Lots of hop flavor with a malty character. A whole lot of good things going on here.
As session beers go, this is among the best! iamwired (15) - Avenel, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Nice aroma, Carmel haze, hop note with bitter malt overtone. Non overpowering IPA but not too light to remind you it has hops. Easy drinking ale. tugboat_801 (23) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Very solid extra pale ale. Great beer with good bitterness mellowed out my delicious malts. tykechandler (343) - Kentucky, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Loaded with hop character and a malty presence, but lower in alcohol. An American session beer.
