jgb9348 (6050) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Cloudy golden and lightly copper coloured body with a large, super soapy three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of grassy and very dry and citrusey hop scents from this with some small malt noticeable in the nose as well. Light-bodied; Super pungent and funky soapy flavour at first with some very subdued hops, a little earth and a lot of off-flavours, mostly from cleanser, citrus, soap, grain and cardboardie and funky flavours of malt substitutes. Aftertaste is dry, funky, floral, grassy and super light - hops are noticeable, but the malt largely isnt, which perhaps is a good thing in this one. Mild with some citrus, light grass and little else at the tail end. Overall, a decent Light IPA at best, that is missing a lot of character throughout and doesnt show too well at any stage of the sample. Not really worth searching out for, as this is pretty subpar to most in the style, especially those from the great state of Michigan. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchants in Dearborn, Michigan on 24-July-2015 for US$1,99 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 14-January-2017.

Clear pale golden, small off white head. Hoppy citrus aroma, grapes, peach, pine apples, orange zest, some mango. Hoppy citrus flavor, herbal, caramel, some biscuits. A bit too much on the malt side.

patrick767 (4038) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 4, 2016
bottle - Pours clear gold with a one finger white head. It smells of citrus hops and light caramel malt. The flavor is hop forward with crisp moderately strong bitterness, some citrus, and some malty sweetness. Light bodied. Pretty good.

PorterPounder (7765) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Sarasota, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Medium golden pour, light off-white colored head, decent lacing. Aroma has a touch of light apricot fruitiness, just a whisper of spruce. Flavor is typical of these session IPAs, no real highlights, just enough citrus bitterness to keep you entertained, a touch of pear and white grape juice fruitiness, Thick enough mouthfeel.

thegreenrooster (4284) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Pour is a clear orange with a average white head. Aroma is a slight orange peel hop with a sweet caramel malt. Flavor is a decent fruit hop to start then it becomes thin and watery. The hops are probably a lot more noticable right after bottling so drinking this at peak freshness would have upped the score a bit. A bit to thin for me.

danlo (2939) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2016
355ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Orange gold colour, bubbly white foam head leaving some lacing and aroma of citrusy hops. Taste is malt caramel with tangerine, orange, grapefruit, hoppy and dusty bitterness. Light bodied, soft carbonation, dry citrusy bitter finish. Nicely drinkable.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Golden-straw coloured with a thin white head of foam. It has citrus, pine and orange flavours with grapefruit and tropical notes on the smooth finish. Awesome for the low ABV.
