Pours a clear golden color, small fluffy white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops. Taste follows the nose with nice notes of grapefruit and lemon. On the lighter side and thin, but the taste was good for me. Enjoyable and easy-drinking Session IPA.

Session IPA in a can, like where the beer community is going. This is a nice example with lemon and dry hop flavors.

Can. Nose is grassy and strongly piny with resin and lighter grapefruit and some hop oils; wood is definitely the strongest here. Pours hazy yellow with above-average carbonation and a dense off-white head. Taste lightly bitter but that picks up to medium by the end, some fresh lemon and lighter orange with lots of unexpected lemon rind, some raw grapefruit juice and oil, medium-strength caramel and a deep and enveloping warmth in the chest from the alcohol, which is surprising for 5%. Almost wheaten texture for a soft but crisp medium body, smooth. Pine dominates the finish. Well done!

hopdog (13191) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2014
12oz can. Poured a golden color with a larger sized white head. Floral hops, citrus, and lighter spicy hop finish. Body somewhat thinner.

Fresh floral hop aroma from a can. Big foamy head goes rocky. Clear pale yellah. Yes, dull hops abound and they are rather less in the alky impact. Not as hoppy as many session IPA but still has that hop bite about it. Probably more like a stronger APA than an IPA. Yes, I’ve tasted APA with more impact than this. Does have a decent amount of co2 in there for an IPA. Its also not as mouth coating as I was expecting.

From a 12oz can. Pours like a pale ale. Nice head. Definitely hop forward but with a good body. Citrus and wheat. Very enjoyable as a summer drink and a great alternative to a classic wit summer ale. Would buy and drink again.

tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2014
I can’t tell what everyone else rated. This beer is killer. It drinks like a session IPA with a touch more alcohol. Draft of pale goldish yellow color with white fluffed head. Head dissipates quickly. Nose is super juicy, plenty of oranges and other citrus, really nice. Flavor is juicy as well. More oranges and grapefruit, clean with minimal malt character. Drinks really nice and light, beach type beer. I dig it through and through

DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Can from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy canary with 2-finger white head. Nose was pale malt, hopcitrus. Tastes resiny, hoppy, with pale malt, some florals and peppery notes, and a dry and resiny finish. Decent.

Tmoney99 (15118) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Can. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid smooth citrus resin hop aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation with soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable brew

FROTHINGSLOSH (8291) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Sampled on draft this beer poured a cloudy yellow color with a medium sized soapy-foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy and a bit off with vague fruity hops. The flavor was dryish and watery with notes of pine and tropical fruits. Medium length finish. A touch thin in body. Meh.
