3.81/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A- pours a clear golden color with a small white head, reducing to just a skimming layer, short lasting lace

S- citrus hops with an earthy & herbal undertone, fresh cut grass with some dank hemp seed

T- sweet and malty up front with some graininess, notes of lemon-grass, the hops aren't really noticeable until the finish, lemony and pine, dry & slightly bitter finish

M- light-med body with low carbonation and foamy mouthfeel, clean and smooth finish, easily drinkable

O- pretty good flavor for the low ABV, not as much bitterness as a typical IPA, but it could easily be a session beer. For a hit summer day, this would be a fine choice

This is a great session ale. It is also a great IPA. Apparently it does have some flaked maize in it which helps give it a sweet and crispy finish. This really accentuates the hops that make it a great IPA. Plus, it's always great when you can have a few and still drive home.

Serving type: on-tap

3.15/5  rDev -18.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear, golden-yellow in color with a fizzy, white head.

Smell: Pine smell, grass smell, very present smell of hops.

Taste: Fresh, vibrant, sticky hops with a hint of sweet malt in the finish. Very present hops flavor, as an IPA should

Moutfell: Never too hoppy where it's cloying or dry. The carbonation adds a good balance.

Overall:I am not a huge fan of IPAs, personally, but that does not mean this is a bad beer. I thought for an IPA, it was good

3.79/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately fast and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, mango, pine, toasty malts and sweet caramel.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some citrus, slight piney resin, toasty malts, faint caramel. Fairly light bitterness.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

3.75/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: medium-low carbonation, orange-brown in color, 1/4 inch head, clear

Smell:big pine and light citrus hops

Taste: caramel and toasted malt start with citrus and pine hops that come in the middle and are present to the end...some straw is also present.

Mouthfeel: light bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet start with a bitter middle that gets slightly more dry and bitter to the end

Overall: A nice and sessionable piney ipa. I could see myself drinking a few as the weather warms. Above average beer, but there are several other ipas that I like more.

I have decided with this beer that Indian Pale Ale beers are not my first choice of style. Although it was well balanced the hops were very strong. My favorite thing about this beer is that the aftertaste was not long, although it was bitter. Too hoppy for my personal taste.
