4.25/5  rDev +9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A- A beautiful amber hue that is clear enough to see through. There is also a clean white head.

S- The nose is mostly the citrus and fruitiness of the west coast hops.

T- Mostly hops. Again you taste the fruity/citrus sweetness of the west coast hops at the front, which is very refreshing. In the back, there is a bitter crispness from the hops. In the aftertaste, the remnants of the hops coat your mouth with a nice lingering bitterness.

M- Fairly carbonated, not much body, but rather crisp.

D- Low ABV, refreshing hop flavor, and thin body combine to make it easy to drink. It seems like this beer would be appropriate for most any occasion. I could probably drink a six-pack by myself and still want more!

3.76/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Amber color with apparent carbonation with a full three fingers head with great retention and leaving a wall of laces.
Citrusy aroma with predominant notes of caramel and grapefruit.
Flavor of American yeast, tea leaves, oranges, grapefruit, mild spices, lemongrass, and caramel and slightly toasted malts. Becomes more lemony with time. And it feels bitterer than its 42 IBUs. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting but friendly bitterness.
Light body with low carbonation.
Interesting that it has a medium bitterness that does not goes away and both malt and hops are melted together. Though it felt a bit too thin, but this makes it very sessionable.
