Pale yellow pour with a thin single finger head. Aroma is full of grapefruit and smells a little juicy. Lace present. Taste is nicely balanced between bitter and sweet, grapefruit and grain. Medium bodied. Nice and refreshing. Good beer, very drinkable.

Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can poured into a glass. Slightly hazy light orange with very small white head. Aroma is herbal hops, medium body, low carbonation, and a little lacing. Taste is herbal hops and pone hops.

12 oz. can, $1.99 single at Binnys. Pale indeed. Except for a bit of unfiltered cloudiness, it could pass for a Bud with a big foamy head. Smell has lots of citrus and apricot from the hops, though, so Bud it aint! Drinks like a light lager, which is welcome in this kind of weather, Just a little malt that has been beaten down by the hops. Not just citrusy, but intensely bitter, too. Despite that, its lightness makes it an enjoyable drink. A perfect gateway for any noob who wants to know the difference between "regular" and "hoppy" beer.

BeerBunker (965) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2015
12oz can. Pours golden orange with a small, fizzy white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, and grain. Taste is of grain. Very big on the grain. The hop character is there, but is evened out by the grain. Lingering bitter hop taste. Light bodied, and easy to drink. I could sit down and drink a few of these. A perfectly acceptable beer.

edwardbass (827) - Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Its a bit pilsner-like, though with more of a hops punch. The bitterness is a tiny bit too astringent, with a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. Not enough malt sweetness to balance it. Quite mediocre.

rumproasts (5318) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2014
can. golden with a one finger head. dry pilsen base. a bit of biscuit and corn. nice crisp simcoe hops, but not everything here meshes flavor-wise.

rxeight (2977) - Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12oz can. Some floral and slightly citrus hops. Edifices or slightly below IPA Im glad that spiteful moved to 6 packs, none of their beers were worth the bomber price point.
