A really solid session IPA. Nice hop flavor and very drinkable.

A - It had an OK head and a yellow/gold cloudy body that looks similar to their flagship wheat ale but with more color.

S - Very fragrant which reflects the late-stage hopping of the brew.

T & M - There is some slight amount of malt underneath the refreshing blend of hops that contained some grapefruit/passion fruit notes and some more floral flavors as well.

O - It is a great summer session beer, but it could stand alone as a year-round brew as well.

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.

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.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: lightly cloudy yellow hue with a moderate effervescence and some floaties. Head is two fingers of frothy white foam. I think it's pretty attractive!

Smell: fruity, citrusy hops on a lightly malty base. There's mango and grapefruit in there; a nice tropical concoction. I find I quite like it.

Taste: hops are a lot more grapefruity in the flavor than in the aroma, and in general the tropical character is toned down. Malt is a little bit grainy, but I kind of like it. Refreshing.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with an OK carbonation and a moderate creaminess. Not too bad.

Overall: a light, refreshing and tasty beer with a great aroma. I could drink plenty of this on a hot day.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled in 5/2013. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice rings of soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, apricot, floral, grass, herbal, bread, cracker, light honey, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bright hop and malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, orange rind, floral, grass, pine, bread, cracker, light honey, and floral earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, orange/lemon zest, orange rind, floral, grass, pine, bread, cracker, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice bright hop flavor balance with a light-moderate malt balance; with minimal cloying bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very good hoppy blonde ale. Good complexity of hop flavors with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
