mcberko (17345) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
12 oz. can, courtesy of Prufrockstar (thanks a lot, Chris), pours a cloudy orange-tinted yellow with a medium white head. Aroma brings out loads of floral hops, light tropical fruits, and zesty citrus. Flavour is rather dry, with dry floral hops, biscuity malt, and some citrus. Not the most exciting or pronounced flavours, but well-balanced and dry. Solid stuff.

bhensonb (15098) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Can from Malt & Vine. Pours translucent gold with a foamy white head. Aroma of green grassy/herby hops. Med + body. Flavor is herb/grass over pale malt. This is a light beer, carbohydrate wise, but pretty heavy on the hop. Which seems to be a mix of pine and citrus after thinking about it. No real hop burn, but there seems to be a hoppy oiliness in the mouth. It cannot be, but I’ll posit this is as hoppy as many DIPAs and more than many IPAs. Amazing for such a low ABV ale.

3.2

3.1
j12601 (11162) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Soft citrus, a touch of grapefruit and again a touch of mango armpit sweat. Medium bodied, big green onion flavor, overwhelming everything else. Big grapefruit through the finish, more of that onion sweat thing on the end.

3.3
gnoff (10241) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2015
On June 24, 2015. At Fremont Brewing Company in Seattle, Washington.

3.6
onceblind (9444) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Hazy light golden with a rocky white head. Very pungent aroma loaded with hops, with that earthy leafy dry-hopped tone I love, a bit of grassiness, and a stern bit of grapefruit rind. Crisp and light body with a nice flavor of grassy, leafy, grapefruity hops, a wee bit of earthy resin, crisp leafy dry hops, and a pale, crisp, balancing pale malt body. just a hint too pithy and resiny but otherwise quite nice. Could have also used a little bit of a sharper flavor, as it is it tastes just a wee watered.

3.3
3fourths (9332) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2016
From can it’s hazed gold with a lasting white head. Hoppy aroma is grass, raw pellets, lemon/mango/pineapple, lightly yeasty and minimally malty. In the mouth it’s medium bodied and lightly sweet and overly bitter, but also juicy-oily and plump even though the carbonation is a little low.
