This crisp golden ale is built on the foundation of delicate light malts. This allows us to showcase some of the most interesting and effervescent American hops in a way we have never before done. We saved over 75% of the hops used in this recipe to add after the batch was boiled, allowing the distinct fragrance of grapefruit, apricot and pine to be preserved as much as possible in the finished beer. With a crisp, but subtle bitterness, a refreshingly light malt character, and a 4.5 ABV, this is the perfect warm weather beverage for those who think flavor is just as important as refreshment.

Bottle, pours pale yellow small white head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit follows thru to taste. Slightly carbonated nice and crisp. 50 IBU any more would be too much for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Brickside. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a light grass note with a bit of bread and a grain backbone. Flavor has lots of bread and grain with a grass backbone.

Strong smell of hops, grass and dandelions. Taste has a hint of lemon, and finish is strong with sustained bitterness. The finish lasts too long for that level of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Received as extra in trade. Pours a pale yellow color with a white head. Has a pleasant floral, citrus hop aroma. Flavor is a bit astringent, bitter. Nothing special.

16 oz. can pours a hazy golden color with moderate white head which leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is full of apricot, grapefruit, and lemon, with a bit of bready malts. Taste is bitter. Body is light to medium with a crisp mouthfeel and slight carbonation. Very easily drinkable and refreshing.

Jfletch (9) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2015 does not count
Poured from 16oz. can. Pours with a nice head with a bit of haze. Aromas of dried apricot, grapefruit and a bit of biscuit. Almost a thyme aroma as well. On the palate there is a slight bitterness and a nice spruce note to go with refreshing carbonation. Slightly bitter at the end as well. I will definitely enjoy lots of this in the upcoming months. Cheers!

Pours a clear golden with medium white head. Aroma is mostly grapefruit with honey sweetness. Taste is a crisp, bitter citrus hop and clean finish. Very enjoyable session IPA.
