12oz bottle into tulip.

A - Clear light amber with a small white head. Very lively carbonation.

S - A blast of pine resin hits the nose first. Very earthy and hoppy with hints of mango and caramel malt.

T - Earthy pine hops are the showcase here (as expected). Light citrus and tropical fruit notes are evident as well. Toasted caramel malts lend just the right amount of sweetness. Finishes mildly bitter.

M - Light body, crisp, bubbly mouthfeel. A bit sticky, somewhat of a dry finish.

O - This is a delicious, hoppy session IPA. High drinkability and very refreshing. The mouthfeel is a little too light, but otherwise this is everything a light IPA should be.

Poured from the garage kegerator into my Duvel tulip.

The pour generated a nice eggshell white 2-3 finger head that sat on top of a light amber/copper body. The head stayed around for the entire beer and left beautiful lacing down the side. Something we all like to see.

Smell - Immediately after the pour you could notice the bouquet of pine, citrus and grapefruit notes that are just leaping out at you. What a very aromatic beer we have here!

Taste - A bit lighter than what expected, and those expectations came from the wonderful aroma that this one produces. Just enough bitterness hits you up front, which quickly fades away. I think the carbonation ups the perceived bitterness. I get notes of grapefruit and citrus muddled together.

Mouthfeel - lighter body, medium carbonation which seems to help out with the bitterness of this beer and balance out the malt body that this possesses.

Overall - For a sessionable IPA, this one hits the nail right on the head. Very tough to beat to have a beer with the flavor and ABV, along with the wonderful aroma. It is a great session beer, you can have many of these and not worry. This beer will be great for those warm summer afternoons when you don't want something too light. This will also satisfy your hunger for hops on those hot sunny days.

Golden body, still, very slight haze. Four fingers of snow white foam. Minimal lacing.

Strong inviting fresh grapefruit and orange aroma.

Light malt base lays a thin coat. Juicy fruit abounds. Hop nip at the swallow. Clean finish.

Light mouthfeel.

Good but not impressive in Beer Geek mode, when its characteristics are under deep scrutiny, by works damn well in its intended role: having one or more when involved in other activities, like fishing or mowing the lawn.

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.
