A: Washed out dirty orange shows a translucent quality with a micro-shower of effervesce. The head was milky, dirty white, thin and whispy and not withstanding long. No legs on the vessel.

S: Freshly sliced grapefruit, pulp, sweet toasty grains. What i like most is the freshness, juicy, and wet and not dry hopped.

T: Toasty backing, meets grapefruit, easy ibus, though appreciable. Slight citrus dryness, soft flowery mixing with some wet juicy lemons and toasted grains. Finishes toasty dry.

M: Some crispness, dry toasty flowery citrus, sliding off the tongue rather easily. Little hop backlash making for a smooth exit.

O: Serves its purpose well, an multiple session ipa with an easy malting and respectable smooth hopping. Probably makes good for a warm summer treat, though equally as nice as a fall beer. Solid B offering, wet upfront, toasty dry finish.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very light copper in color with two fingers length of foam that dissipates fairly quickly.

Smell: Faint citrus.

Taste: Citrus, like white grapefruit. Hop bitterness up front that pleasantly lingers on.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium, that leaves slight, clean aftertaste.

Overall: A very refreshing beer that has enough flavor and bite to satisfy. As the label says, this is very "sessionable".

when they were filling the growler I could smell this thing from over yon... damn...

eyes...
clean golden brown hue, white head of a concave stance, nice lacing, pretty basic but effective (like a good judo chop)
nose...
nice pine bomb with citric notes, in some way it doesn't totally go off into pine psycho ville but it is strong, damn hoptastic smell, it is pretty same song but that aint wrong imo... scent wise this is really nice for a lower ABV, this would give run to some DIPAs

taste etc...
medium light body with a nice prickly carbonation bite, some lemony afterbits, hop flavor is solid but not overwhelming... at first sip you almost think this will get old quick... but it doesn't ! this has big hop flavor that sort of smacks you in the face... and then retreats so you say "thank you sir may I have another".. and so you shall

verdict?
session able but tasty as balls ? (if you are into that sort of thing...)
damn tasty stuff, really enjoyable, almost too much flavor for the favor, well done

Nice beer for a session, but it leaves a lot to be desired due to the metallic aftertaste. Could be due to a bad tap, but not a good enough beer to bring me back. However, due to the overall quality hop flavor, this beer may see some repeat business from me due to the mellow starting taste and the overall drinkability. Poor mouthfeel may e a result of the metallic taste but the lack of a quality head and carbonation hurts.

Serving type: on-tap
