HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Sampled at GABF 2011. This beer sits bright golden in the glass with a white head. Big, grassy hoppy aroma with very mild malt sweetness. Flavor is crisp and hoppy, little malt backing whatsoever. At first it seems a bit odd as the mouthfeel is quite thin, making it come off as almost like a hop soda. The hops come off piney and grassy. This is certainly different, however considering the low ABV I’m going to have to bump this up a few points. I’d really like to try this again.

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. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Draft on tap at The Beer Spot GTMW Eve Event at Brickhouse (Madison, WI). Pours a nice deeper hazed shady orange hue. A dulled glow, nice egdes. Frothy whitish head atop dies to a decent filmy layer, laces ok. Aromas are grapefruit rind, juice, and a bit of lemon. Some more rind oils, juicy quality, some gentle bready malt. Dry and firmly citrus driven. Initial is small body, light, and dry. A bit bitter. Small body lends itself a decent bitterness, touches of soap, florals, mellow grapefruit and citrus. Not as powerful as the nose. Middle is small bodied, decent with some session qualities. Some decent fruit, bread, dry grainy feel. Backend is dry, firmly bitter for it’s size. Some resiny and rind qualities. Grapefruit, lemon, oils. Finish is dry, resiny and rind driven. Nice rind presence and citrus flavor without being tart, real bitter, or pulpy. Nice session beer. koleminer20 (3470) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2013
HopCat in East Lansing. This beer is surprising. Shorts got it right with this 3.5% session. The appearance is a very light gold, and the aroma is surprisingly deep. A good amount of citrus and a large amount of hops seem present, though I don’t know of this is the case. The taste is just as it smells. A bit citrusy and very hoppy. The finish is dry, but hardly lingers. madmitch76 (24483) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2013

gunnar (9019) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
Hazy amber beer with a huge pale cream coloured head. Lovely nose of pineapple, mint, pine and tropical fruits. Palate is light and airy and a little crisp. Minerals. Thin malt, a little cream. Slightly watery hops, little pineapple, marmalade, pine and mild tropical fruits. Finishes crispy with a touch of lime. Yellow grapefruit aftertaste. Nice complexity here - but it could have done with more intensity.
