Delicious. Incredibly fresh and juicy right out of the can. Full, citrusy piney aroma. Nice sweet full smooth citrusy hop flavor that is resinous and sticky in the mouth. Slightly bitter.

Hazy gold with a white head. The aroma is full of Galaxy hops, strong tropical stone fruit, with some cereal malt notes in there as well. The flavor is smooth and closely resembles a session IPA. Decent.

Tasted from tap. Pours a clear golden with white head. Good lacing. Great citrus aroma. Grapefruit, passion fruit, mango. Taste is also nice citrus flavor. Similar flavors to nose with a nice sweet malt backbone. Moderate bitterness with mild to moderate sweetness. Very good american pale ale. If you love citrus and tropical fruit pale ales, you'll love this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vyvvy (6470) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Pours clear light golden yellow with a nice sized white head. The aroma has floral / powdery / tropical fruit / dank hops and a bit of mild caramel malt in the back for just enough balance between the hops and malt. It has a medium / light crisp body that has nice unobtrusive carbonation. The flavor starts off with dry caramel malt, pine, grapefruit, spice and dry toastiness. The finish has biting grapefruit zest, earthiness and dry maltiness. Really enjoyable pale ale.
