Can pours hazy golden with a lacy white head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, dank notes. Nice dry flavor, citrusy, some herb, bitter hoppy finish. Quite light and drinkable. Really enjoyable, moreish as the Brits might say.

bulldogops (2701) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2016
Rating #1925 - 2015.09.25 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 2, Beer 24 - Yellowish amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is sweet citrusy, tangerine notes, mild grassiness.Taste is light citrus and pine sweetness, tempered by a tame hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied, mild alcohol warmth, and very well balanced. Crushable at 4.5%

3.3
3fourths (9349) - 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.

IndianaRed (4774) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 1, 2016
On tap at Archer Ale House. Crystal clear pale straw soapy white head. Big fresh clean citrusy hop flavors. Very flavorful and fresh. Teriffic pale

3.5
stevoj (5271) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Can from Boise Co-op. Pale golden pour with foamy head, fades, but leaves curtains of lacing. Citrusy, piney hops, kind of resinous in the aroma, grapefruit and Pine-sol. Taste had the hops tinge, and a lighter malt bill, again recalling a pils taste. Astringent hops finish though, leaving a slightly soapy taste.

3.9
luttonm (6482) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Pine Box, Seattle. During SBW, as ’SBW Session’. Hazy bright yellow, cloudy, creamy white foam. Lovely pale, great fresh juicy hop. Clean, tasty. Typical pine-citrus mellowing in to cereal grain. Tons of flavor. Delicious and fresh.

3.1
j12601 (12622) - 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.
