Cant explain why I like this so much better than the first poster, but to each our own. Draft taster at Standard Market today. Clear golden yellow under a stiff head. Smell has basically piny hop, a bit of floral note as well. Taste builds on the pine hoppiness adding a note of grapefruit and some big bitterness that still works well with the lighter malt profile. Welcome as a sessionable hop bomb.

Scipio (1005) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2017
Pours a clear golden with a medium white that that slowly fades. The aroma consists of grapefruit, pine, grassy hops, some hints of resin, and a little bit of caramel. The taste is dry and bitter with a very sweetness that isnt overpowering. Grapefruit and pine dominate here. Its floral, with a caramel base, and has some resin as well. Long, piney aftertaste is pretty strong. This one is lighter in body, with more of a sticky texture, and has some heavier carbonation. Just because this isnt very strong, doesnt mean that its especially easy drinking. But it isnt bad.

Can at home. Hazy yellow with a foamy head. The aroma is citrus and ripe apricot. Light bodied but not hollow like most session beers. It has a rounded malt base, with grapefruit and grassy hops. Bitter finish. Its actually loaded with flavor considering the style and the ABV.

ChiGuy68 (592) - Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2016
Tasted from a 12oz. can. It poured A hazy golden hue with a frothy off-white head. Floral citrus hop aroma that poped as soon as I poored, but faded and became a bit more resiny as I drank. Taste of grapefruit and hops. This offers a bit more than your your typical session brew, but then again do they really consider 4.5% alcohol a session? I guess so in this high-octane world of craft brews.

RRistow12 (825) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Tasted from can. Pours a murky pale gold with thick rocky white head. Tons of lacing. Really nice aroma. Lemony citrus aroma with some floral notes. Taste is pretty thin with a mild to moderate bitterness. Flavors of lemon, pineapple, pine, caramel, and crackers. Pretty solid session IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2016
Draft: Poured a pale yellow color ale with a medium white foamy head. Aroma of citrusy hops notes with some cereal notes and light grassy notes is quiet nice. Taste is a nice mix of citrusy hops notes with some grassy notes and light cereal notes. Body is about average fir style with good carbonation. Nice enjoyable beer with great refreshing factor thought hops extraction level could be higher.

Awktoberfest (404) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Carries a decent initial aroma followed by a weak, thin bodied disappointing beer. It has a bitterness to it but has very few facets of interests. It got a hop aroma burst, a bitter hop taste, no body and they play pretty poorly together. Least favorite of the few buckledown beers. Belt and suspenders is an awesome IPA and fiddlesticks is a great belgian IPA so it shocked me that this feel so flat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
