look: 3.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Light honey
Aroma: Like sticking your nose in a big bag of fresh marijuana. Pure, clean hop aroma that makes you want eat the smell. Jumps right out of the glass.
Taste: Much more restrained in taste than in smell but with a lot of the same qualities. Bright, citrusy. Really holds on to a lot the flavor you want in an IPA while also being light and refreshing.
Mouthfeel: Somewhat thicker and more viscous than you would expect. Light sting on the back of the mouth that dissipates quickly.
Overall: An excellent example of the session IPA style. I could see myself drinking this beer on a hot day and getting a lot of the things I like in an IPA without too much body or overkill in the hop department. Somehow though, the taste, aroma, and mouthfeel seem a little at odds with each other.

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.
