Aroma and flavor is lemon, hops, mild malts and a bitter/slightly beery finish. Patrickctenchi (6552) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Cloudy yellow/amber with a small, off-white head.
Strong grapefruit/orange-peel aroma.
Taste is sweet orange and pine...
Slight spicy peel bittering.
Drinks fairly full bodied for such a light-weight.
Nice. Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, mango, and grapefruit. It pours sort of a transparent golden-orange with a two finger white head that fades to a soapy film within a minute or so. There’s some spotty webbing left of the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with quick dose of grass and herbal notes. The finish has lots of grapefruit, light pine, and just a hint of sweet citrus. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, I wish the flavor mimicked the citrus and mango aromas. Regardless, it’s a nice light and sessionable IPA. Beer5000 (6439) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2015
355 bottle from Det gode Brygg, Sandnes. Slightly unclear golden body with a nice off-white head. Aroma has lots of citric fruit with some malt ion the background. Flavor is medium sweet pale malt, quite citric fruity with some tropical fruit and decent bitterness. Light balanced body and fruity bitter aftertaste. Nothing really complex, but what a damn fine thirst quencher. A true session IPA. But how do they manage to preserve all this fruity aroma all the way from Michigan to Norway? luttonm (6166) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle at April Tasting in Belgrade. Toasty malt, sweaty aroma. Soft haze orange. Smooth. Soft session. Ok.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 3/21/2013. Pours hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, floral, grass, pine, light honey, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of hop notes with a fair malt balance. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, floral, grass, pine, light honey, and floral earthiness. Moderate floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, floral, grass, pine, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a decent malt balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky, and crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish as expected at 3.5%. Overall this is a highly excellent session IPA! Lots of hop flavor with nice complexity and robustness; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering. rumproasts (5342) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 5, 2014
bottle. deep golden with small head. very well done session ipa. big citrus flavors. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 9, 2011
@ GABF. Bright dark gold, lasting head. Bright pine and fir hop aroma. A lack of malt sugars hurts the beer somewhat in the palate, making it seem brassy and unbalanced, but it’s overall a good effort on a pale and well-hopped session beer. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Jakers90. Served in a tulip.
Pours a clear golden color with a pretty nice white head and some spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries some light citrus hops with a touch of dankness in the background. Flavor is nice, but could use a little more hop flavor against the bitter background. Light body with fairly-heavy bitterness for the ABV. Pretty nice. This is a good summer brew. A session beer all can agree on.

Draft. Pours mostly clear golden-yellow-orange in color with a one-finger white head. The aroma is hoppy and very fruity, with mango, citrus/orange, and pine. Dry and hoppy flavor with average bitterness. A bit of sweet malt and a great complex fruity hop character. Medium-bodied with a good level of carbonation. Overall a really good beer, especially considering the low-ass ABV.
