Nice light orange to yellow tone with bubbly head and loads of bubbles along the edge of the glass.

Very strong fruity scent with hints of lemon, grapefruit, flowers, perfumes, pine and malt.

The taste does not follow the nose as earthy musky tones are followed by a watery finish. There are hints of grapefruit throughout but they are weak. The feel is easy and light, hence the All Day but its not quite an IPA like experience.

Poured from a bottle into a Gulden Draak tulip

A- pours a transparent light orange with a one finger white head. Fades pretty fast, leaves a nice white film on the beer

S- holy cat pee. Must be a decent bit of simcoe in this one.

T- starts off with some citrus, finish is sightly bitter. Not a lot of extreme flavors with this one, but I wasn't really expecting any

M- body is pretty light, especially for an IPA. Solid

O- easy drinking beer, but not something I'd drink by the gallon at the price point. You can get better IPAs for less money, and that unfortunately puts a hole in the whole sessionable aspect of this

Poured from the bottle a clear orange-gold color with a two fingers of bright white head. Nice amount of lacing left behind.

Bright hoppy aroma of grapefruit and fresh-cut grass with a whiff of yellow onion.

This one packs a lot of flavor considering the 4.7% abv. Like the aroma I found grapefruit, fresh-cut grass and again, that onion factor.

Medium bodied and crisp with a sharper carbonation.

This one exceeded all expectations for a lower abv beer...but the onion notes keep me from rating it higher.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Weyerbacher pint glass.

A: Very clear, deep gold in color, with lots of visible carbonation and a one finger white head.

S: Big citrus and tropical fruit hops, with some melon/spice, resinous pine, and flowery character as well. Just a hint of light grainy malts in the background.

T: Follows the nose, but the hops take a little of a backseat to the grainy (not quite husky) cracker malts, and the melon/spice hop flavors seem to take over for the fruitiness in the hop profile. Light bitterness in the hang, but this goes down pretty easy.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, and minimal alcohol presence.

O: Pretty good, and it would be easy to put down a few while working the grill...but there are some other APAs in this ABV/aroma category that I would prefer. Solid beer for the style and I'm glad to have it available on shelves here, but the flavor doesn't quite live up to the really nice aroma.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Gold with a short head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity and low-moderate carbonation.

Nose
Pineapple, tangerine, papaya, navel orange and honeydew.

Taste
Papaya with hints of pineapple and tangerine. Light caramel backbone with notes of candy sugar and honeydew melon. Finishes with subtle notes of pine and orange zest.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, clean, sharp and dry.

Overall
Has some really nice tropical flavors upfront and then quickly dives into the dry/bitter territory you'd expect from an IPA. Quite nice.
