kramer (6609) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2017
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is tropical fruit hoppiness with a pale bready malt base. The flavor is juicy tropical hoppiness, light pale malt, a touch of yeastiness. Light bitterness that lingers a bit on the finish. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice session IPA.

hopscotch (11018) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Draft... Pours clear and brilliantly amber with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma features big-time citrus fruits, tropical fruits and melons - mango, grapefruit, passionfruit, cantaloupe. There are also some honey-like malt characteristics here. Full-bodied with a smooth mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is a medley of fruits and melons almost perfectly balanced by modest bitterness and moderate sweetness. Lengthy, bittersweet finish.

Draft at Muuy Biien (thatís how they spell it) concert at MOTR Pub on January 15, 2017. Somewhat cloudy dark golden hue, moderate bittersweet nose with lots of citrus and most mustiness, taste much the same. Drinks more like an APA but definitely a good session beer.

Crisp golden coloured body with a pale white head, only about a centimetre tall. Bright hoppy nose with grapefruit, pine and resin all noticeable and only a touch of malt with some lemons and other fresh scents - very nice. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent hoppy flavours with some great lemon, grapefruit and resinous notes and hardly any weighty malts, makes this go down very easily. Aftertaste is relatively straight forward with hops, but there are a few mild sweet elements, some of fruit and some of caster sugar also noticeable. Overall, a very nice Light IPA with some subdued sweetness, but this is all about the hops; the easy-to-drink, liquid hops. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Gat Beer in [NorthEast] Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for US$3,00 on 02-July-2016 sampled a few minutes later from my hotel room in [NorthEast] Philadelphia on 02-July-2016.
