12 oz. bottle supplied by WillForRunBeer. Many thanks! To short-stemmed, it pours a clear light orange with which a sudsy, whitish head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of peas, hops, sunflower seeds, wet dog, poppies, and American yeast, Tastes the same with the addition of minced garlic, basement, and pale malt by swallow. mallen386 (20) - OKC, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 13, 2014
A nice beverage. Nose is a bit too band-aid and the aftertaste is a bit too tinny or medicinal. wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Pours lighter golden with lacing white head. Nose is flowers, citrus, limey rinds, grapefruits, spice and some toasty malts. Flavor is similar with some piney hop character as well as some minty pines. This was a couple months old but still pretty good. Wish there were more explosive hops and less toasty malts but I never really like toasty malts in hoppy beers. jcr (2705) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle. Light golden body with frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine. Hint of biscuit and caramel. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Hop taste of grapefruit and citrus with some grass. Aroma was bold enough, but the thinner body (not surprising in a session ipa) was a bit of a weak backbone for the hop flavors. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle: Bright golden-yellow body with moderate haziness; white, foamy, big-bubbled cap settles quickly to a lazy film. Aroma is, well, heavy Simcoe. Pine needles, brash florals, woodsy & earthy spice, bitter grapefruit rind, a hint of apricot, & mild perfume. Smells bitter. Tastes bitter, too. Surprisingly robust & flavorful for a 4.5% ABV brew, actually. Heavy pine needs, resin, white pepper, spicy & earthy in a staunch bitterness that leads into a strong evergreen & perfumey back-end. Wet, oily, & moderately thin mouth feel. Malt is fully eclipsed by the hop abrasion. Slightly palate fatiguing, which is funny considering the lower ABV, but all-in-all, a nice hop bomb.

Pour from a 120z bottle. Slightly hazy golden brew with weak white head. Aroma of earth and citrus hops. Taste is light malt with piney hops up front, transitioning to a piney, earthy bitter finish. Palate is thin. Light in body and alcohol but full of taste. Decent session IPA. RespertFTW (521) - Michigan, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle. Light gold color with medium head. Pine aroma. Mainly hop flavor with some malt. Seemed a little thin and watery at the finish. Solid beer. Could use a little more bite in the finish. flatmatt (1576) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Pours a fully hazy pale amber golden with a large white head. Strong pine hop aroma, resinous, with grassy and citrus backings. Similar flavors, more grassy than citrusy, with just a hint of malt. A simple but good pale ale. hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a hazy straw color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of some grassiness and citrus. Tastes of floral hops with some citrus rinds.
