A: Hazy gold - about like a shandy. Little head and lacing retention.

S: Light floral hops and small amounts of citrus. Not a lot here.

T: lightly hopped for an IPA but still a hop presence. This is really more more of a wheat beer with a few more hops. Not bad but not sure where they were going.

M: about what I expected. Medium body and very fresh for a summer day

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

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.

3.2/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours a slightly hazy lemony golden with a dense white head that slowly dissipates, leaving sheets of lacing.

Floral, slightly dank hops, lemony citrus, and musty, earthy notes form the initial aroma. There's a grainy character at the base, with faint pilsner crackery malt making an appearance.

Flavor is very citrus-forward, and bitter from the start, though a soapy kind of bitter that's fairly offputting. It lingers throughout. Lemon, grapefruit, and muted tangerine give the impression of sweet tarts, and underlie a soft bed grainy malt. The balance is bitter.

Body is moderate to a touch light, slightly slick, with moderate carbonation, substantial astringent harshness, and modest alcohol warmth.

Decent hop flavoring profile, with little malt presence, keeping it might. The bitterness is overwhelming and unpleasant. It lingers indefinitely.
