Sampled at GABF. Pours a hazy gold with some creamy head. Hoppy nose, some malt sweetness, a little sugary, a little yeasty, clean. Sweet, malty flavor, honey, pine, orange, lemon. Medium bodied, zesty finish. Nose could be better, but otherwise this is nice.

Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a pale yellow-gold color with a medium sized fluffy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish, tart, fruity and citric. The flavor was pine, lemon, pepper and turned a bit dry. Long finish. Medium body. Ok.

At Cambridge, pours hazy gold with medium white head. Good bit of carbonation. Smell is very boring for having decent amount of hops in there. I get some bread and other malts. Flavor is peanut shell, lager, and pepper grain. Lighter bodied.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, pineapple, pine, and grapefruit. It pours a transparent gold with a small white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus and tropical fruits. The finish has moderate pine and a touch of grapefruit. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a really nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. It pours a lightly hazed pale gold color with a fizzy white head. The aroma is oranges and grass with some green onion and light florals. The flavor is the same. The orange is thankfully kept to a minimum with more dank onion and grass. A decent amount of citrus bitterness with hints of orange sweetness. Very flavorful for a low gravity lager. A bit messy, but interesting.

GABF 2012. Yellow. Bright hop aroma with a fresh hop aroma, like a wet-hop ipa, with a floral character. One of the better IPAs I had at GABF.
