Pours a straw color, just a hint of haze, with a pretty weak head, but not a bad looking beer at all. Smell is a little yeasty, but mostly citus zest hops (mostly grapefruit). The smell's not in your face, but it's solid and awesome; way more than you'd expect from a "light" beer like this. Taste is a bit of malt, a bit of yeast and a nice citrusy hop flavor. If you're used to drinking big DIPA's, this is going to taste weak at first, but the right tastes are there and the hops are really enjoyable (probably one of the strongest grapefruit flavors I've had in a beer). Mouthfeel was a bit thin, but what do you expect given the %alcohol?
I think this beer should be evaluated in a different catergory from other IPA's. It's not meant to compete with them. The abv is 4.7% for Pete's sake! As a "fishing trip on the lake-session ale with some hop flavor, this is a world-class beer! I don't think I've ever had a tastier beer of similar abv.

First taste was served on tap at a July 4th fundraiser picnic. Served in plastic, disposable 16 ounce cups. While the serving didn't allow a complete feel for the beer, the citrus nose caught my attention. The beer's lighter body made it a worthy, refreshing accompaniment to the BBQ. Since then,I have had it served in both 12 oz bottle and can. Both of these servings were equal with no difference in qualities of the beer. A: golden color, poured a moderate head. (Bottle served in a pint glass and can was poured in an white wine glass). Smell: citrus nose (refreshing). Taste: citrus, grapefruit up front. Mild bitter finish. Mouthfeel: effervescent, no heavy hop after taste. Overall, I enjoyed this beer.
