Ap: The pour is clear and burnt orange in color with a small fluffy white head. Ar: The nose is somewhat floral with a light citrus component. Very light. T: The hop profile is almost all floral. Medium long finish that may be the most satisfying component of each sip. P: The body is on the light end of medium with a crisp and plentiful carbonation. O: This is one of my least favorite styles. However, the floral hops and the lightly sweet taste provide a refreshing brew.

On tap at Atlanta's airport. Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is of your typical mainstream hops (most likely cascade), malts, corn, and birch. Lighter palate. Flavor is of hops, malts, corn, and grain. Leaves a bland hop finish.

Can on Delta Airlines flight from Detroit to Las Vegas on 9 October 2017. It is always nice to see craft beer being served on flights and especially beers as tasty as this one. Great looking can and even greater contents inside the can. Hoppy aroma and flavour with a hoppy finish as well.

Keg, Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours gold, foamy head collapsing to lacy. Biscuity aroma. Dry taste, no real complexity. Hoppy lager not proper West coast pale really. Ok.

ianwelby (1525) - SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2017
Clear golden, white head. Bugger all aroma. Taste is crisp, bitter hop, a splash of citrus. Something tangy and fruity. Alright.

3.2
leaparsons (10765) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Keg, Brewdog Leicester. Hazy golden with a thin head. Leafy, herbal hops with green pine. Biscuit malts. Citrus pith with mellow tropical sweetness. Vegetable bitterness. Slightly disappointing.

Theydon_Bois (20632) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2017
Keg at BD Soho, 02/11/17. Clear light golden yellow with a decent off white cap. Nose is toasted bread, citric peel, tangerine, sweet candy, fresh grass, melon. Taste comprises melon, toasted grains, floral bite, straw, melon, orange peel, peach. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with modest hop bitterness. Ok .. could session on if it were the only beer in town but it's not and it's pretty middle of the road .

Can. A fine IPA, but it pales in comparison with more hoppy and flavorful alternatives. The best thing I can say about this beer is that it has no off-notes and it is a very benign brew.

3.3
Jyrsa (962) - - OCT 29, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Tap. Clear medium yellow with medium pure white head. Nose of caramel, citrus and pine. Caramel, lightish hopping and pale malt. Light body.

ironcontra (451) - ATL, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2017
Smells fruity, oranges, citrus, pine. Tastes fairly watered down, a slight hoppy aftertaste, somewhat buttery

3.4
mabuzzer (909) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2017
12oz can from Good Spirits. Clear, amber with a foamy white head. Citrus, pine, malt aroma and flavour. Refreshing
