On tap: The aroma consists of citrus, light lemon, grapefruit, and a hint of pine. It’s a transparent golden-orange with a small white head that leaves some thin webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus with a touch of lemon. The finish has moderate grapefruit and some faint florals. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Draft at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. Pours orange with a thin white head. Leaves a lot of white lacing. Nice floral notes on the nose. Solid grapefruit notes on the nose. Feels a bit thin on the tongue. It’s a clean finisher. Not as exciting as I’d hoped. fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Clear golden pour, fresh hoppy aroma. Floral and citrus hops in the taste, very easy drinking.
ARH (1125) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2014
On tap poured into a sampler. Aromas not too dissimilar to Pine-sol start this one off along acute notes of pepper and some citrus late. It pours a clear, pale honey gold color with a soft white head that reduces to a medium thin ring with a light dusty surface. It leaves a good amount of dense, small bubble lace. The taste is a medium bitter and medium sweet blend. The light bodied, thin textureded beer has a big, fuzzy and grainy carbonation. Flavors of lemon rind and spice come through on the dry qnd crisp finish. The aftertaste is grassy with citrus rind; it’s mellow, but it lingers. It’s slightly astringent, too. Overall, it makes for a very sessionable beer.

Catching up ratings......... On tap at Detroit Airport. Pours a pale golden color with a small white head. Aroma of lots of tropical and citrus fruits mixed together. Taste had pineapple and mango, but I also gotsome bitter citrus taste of pineapple. Nice light body, low alcohol, but very good and tasty. I had a couple flights to try many beers and this one was one of the better ones I had on a long layover. I ordered a full glass after. trapped (3150) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 23, 2014

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014
Location: Draft at Morrison’s, 10/21/14
Aroma: It has a clean, hoppy aroma of lemon/citrus zest, spice, and some pale malts
Appearance: It pours a clear gold color with a white head and some light lace
Flavor: This one has a zesty and spicy hop flavor, with a sweet middle, and a mid-bitter finish
Palate: It has a lively carbonation and a decent mouthfeel, with a somewhat dry finish
First off, that name rationale is borderline genius. Just great. Weill done there. I have to give them extra credit for that. As for the beer, it is a pretty nice Session IPA. It isn’t the best is the style I have tried, but it is pretty good. A little less carbonation would have significantly improve the drinkability, and the overall enjoyment of this beer.
