REVIEW

Style: IPA

ABV: 4.7%

Purchased at: John’s Grocery, Iowa City, IA

Pour: Dark gold pour with a medium-sized white head.

Aroma: Pine, citrus hops aroma dominate along with some dankness on the nose.

Flavor: Citrus hops dominate the flavor, maybe a tad of floral taste as well. The bitterness is missing but doesn’t take away from the brew.

Ratebeer.com rating: 96/100

Beeradvocate.com rating: 87/100

Overall: A-

My recommendation: A go to beer for the summer for sure. A great concept, and they come through by providing a very tasty sessionable beer.

I don't get it. The first one of these I had out of the sixpack was so enjoyable and tasty and refreshing and light. I thought I'd found my new go-to beer, particularly for warm weather. Several days later, the second one tasted like straight up cat pee. Is that the Simcoe hops? Is it one of the undisclosed hops they say are in there? I don't know but it makes for an unpleasant experience. I tried a third one several days later and it was cat pee again. Pushed the rest of the pack off on a friend. This one gets perma-banned from my fridge.

L: Bright gold with a touch of haze and small soapy head. Not much in the way of lacing, but good carbonation streaming up from the bottom.

A: Big piney and resiny hop notes, citrus zest as well. Not much in the way of malt character, a slight graininess from the base malt. Neutral fermentation character, but a touch of yeastiness.

T/M: Firm hop bitterness upfront for such a light brew, nice pine/resin hops with some vegetal character as well as some fruitiness. Malt is damn near nonexistent, providing little to no balance and giving a very drying finish, but does an excellent job of accentuating hop character. There is a slight yeasty bite to this beer, likely from the lack of fining agents and the use of a low flocculating, neutral American ale strain.

Overall, a very delicious session ale. Insanely drinkable and gives hopheads something to drink all day long. Great for any occasion where you want to keep a flavorful beer flowing over your tongue.
