[Tap] at the brewpub. Pours hazy gold with a soapy eggshell head. Aroma is super fresh hand crushed hop cones, floral rye, citrusy, a little doughy yeast, pencil shavings, and washed rind cheese. The flavor is floral hops, a bit of rye spice, a fair bit of bitterness, and absolutely no sweetness. Unreal beer for 3.5%. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClarkVV (6214) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 6, 2016
Draught at the Fermentaria, 8/27/16.
Another heavily hazy, approaching soupy, golden-lemon-rind colored beer with a medium-sized white head atop, showing moderate retention.
Juicy, grassy, spicy and only moderate citric notes in the nose show peach, orange juice and pineapple, with strong biscuity malts behind it. I wouldnt call it a juice bomb, on account of the dry, grainy malt, but its certainly headed that way. I do appreciate the graininess of the malt, however, as it adds a crisp, balancing element without having to use a ton of hop bitterness. Id also like to point out that this is all cascade hops. Absolutely wild. Chalk me up as being very shocked. No alcohol or flaw.
Good malty texture and tight carbonation with a chewy rye character to it and lots of grain and spice. Fruitiness is high and the hops add plentiful orange juice, lemon rind, peach and light pineapple. Theres certainly no lack of flavor here and it doesnt seem thin or watered down. Good dryness and yet maltiness at the same time, with biscuity malts and chewy rye notes. Low to moderate bitterness with no alcohol, resin or flaw.

4 oz sample from the source. Bright yellow. Aroma is grapefruit, pine and a weak grassy note. The flavor shows a rye backbone with the hop variety displayed bery nicely. Orange, garpefruit in a juciy texture through the center bit tirns dry in the finish. This has unbelievable flavor for an brew under 4% ABV. Perfect for a humid August afternoon. Unreal display of a session IPA.

On tap at the Fermentaria. It pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma was very floral. The flavor was dry and flowery with a touch of grapefruit. Low to medium bitterness. Pale, dry and light bodied. Good.

NikkTwist (2942) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2016 Draft at Strangeloves. Very cloudy orange pour with soapy white froth. Orange juice. Oak tannins. Grassy. Fruit loops. Tang. Full-bodied. Modestly-hopped. Not much ABV. Works as a decent juicy session but not nearly as complex as its name.

PhillyCraft (6648) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2016
Sampled at the Ferm, pours murky orange golden with medium white head. Notes of grass, light pine, orange, and some minerals. A touch dull as she sits but when you add some hops or cannabis back into her, shes a dreamboat. Ill take anything hoppy thats under 5 percent when its 95 degrees and humid as hell outside. Feels like a concrete jungle out here. Gross

Pours a hazy golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma mangos, passion fruit and grain. Taste is grain, citrus and tropical fruit. I cant believe this is 3.3 abv

POurs a cloudy straw hay color with a small white head. Aroma is spicy, rye, pepper, nicew, little grassy. Taste is refreshing, rye, spice, refreshing. A very nice low ABV beer that works perfectly as a session beer. Very full and tastefull considering the ABV! =)

jredmond (7900) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 Draft at tired hands with pat, Dallas and ann. Pours a clear golden body with white lacing. Aroma is super dank herb, funky citrus and light grassy hop. Awesome. Mouthfeel is medium to thin, lightly crisp with notes of light rye, grass, bitter pineapple and faint bitter hop.

Capa (3003) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Pale glowing golden with a white head. Aroma is soft and citrus floral. Light body. Not a flavor powerhouse as to be expected with the abv. Next to no finish. Solid but a little too faint.
