A - Mildly cloudy. Golden yellow. Beautiful small bubbles. Very little pure white head that lingers extra long
S – fresh, hay type smell, like a farmhouse. The smell hides the bitterness within.
T – Great at first. Clean, soft, nicely bitter. I REALLY like whatever blend of hops is used here. Thin, and to my taste, a bit light on flavor. Very one dimensional. It has, in my mind, a poor aftertaste. Reminiscent of a strong barley wine, where the bitter gets thicker and builds rather than dissipate.
M – thick fluid, for a yellow beer. But still refreshing. Thicker than just a thirst quencher, with a very long finish.

Overall:
I didn't know this was an IPA when I bought it. Got a six pack on sale for 8.99. I expected a soft summer ale. Boy was I surprised. It’s a great example of American IPA. Not my favorite style, but I appreciate how clean it is. It’s bitter without being overpowering. It’s thirst quenching without being watery.
It’s a top quality product, though it’s not my personal preference.

Pours a cloudy golden, with substantial head. Thick and beautiful lace.

Nose is pleasantly grainy with plenty of citrus notes. I get orange peel and spice as well.

Taste is also quite good -- very nice citrus hops presence, yet with a lighter, near-lager body. Perfectly light but flavorful session ale, and one I'd gladly enjoy again.

A-Semi-cloudy, some carbonation, two finger head.

S-Good deal of hops, lemon and citrus, some malt.

T-Balance is off, wheat/straw is competing with citrus/lemon flavors. Mild bitterness.

M-Light to medium bodied, dry crisp finish.

O-Not a great beer, but for a summer session ale, rather drinkable. Not the best summer sessional but worth a taste, which is more than can be said about most Upland beers.
