Poured into a mason jar from a 12 oz bottle.

Pours a nice clear golden color with some slight copper hints. There is a nice half inch head that forms that is white and pretty dense. Nice sticky lacing as the head recedes.

Aroma of citrus hops with some nice grapefruit notes. Sweet juicy hops are present. The hops are pungent and very mouthwatering. Then there is a nice earthy grain a biscuity malt bread to the aroma. Some slight malt sweetness balanced very well by the clean hop notes.

The flavor starts off with nice citrus hop notes, similar to the nose. The citrus notes are very crisp and clean with light grapefruit and some tangerine. There is some bready biscuity taste that follows the nice hoppy notes. Very drinkable and approachable. Balanced and refreshing.

This is a good brew. Low ABV with tons of flavor.

Had this on tap at Spitzer's in NYC.

It comes in an orange golden color with a frothy head.

The aroma has some hoppy tangerine, grapefruit, and some tropical fruits. Wonderful hops and fruitiness.

There's a pop of bitterness. Papaya, tangerine, lemon peel, some orange. Then the middle has a biscuit malt, nothing too sweet, and then a gentle bitterness. It's quite hoppy actually.

In the end, it's quite easy and sessionable. It's towards the fruity IPA style "pale ale" that breweries are putting out these days. At 4.7% ABV, it really does have good flavor.

For me however, it lacks body and a punch of flavor. I had this right after Captain Lawrence Freshchester. I prefer Southern Tier Live in relation to the fruity hoppy pale ales.

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

A- Pours a hazy peach golden color with a few streams of rising carbonation. The white head is thin and creamy with nice retention and leaves some nice lacing.

S- Peach, mango, pineapple, pine, and grass. Aromatic and very appealing.

T- Piney hops, with a nice malt backing. There is some nice fruitiness as well. Light on the finish.

M- The carbonation is nice and keeps it light. Just a bit of lingering bitterness.

O- A very well made beer that drinks incredibly well. Very tasty. This is going to be consumed a lot in the summer.

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a light orange/gold with a finger-width of white head on top. Light retention. The nose is bursting with citrus and pine needles! Sharp and inviting aroma. The mouth is crisp and clean. Easy finish. This beer starts out with a nice bitter smack, but this hesitates and finishes with a sweet citrus flavor of orange and tangerine. Well balanced. This cures my craving for the bitterness, but is also quite refreshing and easy to consume. Not the standard for IPAs no doubt, but this one holds its own while also taking on some characteristics of a "sessioner" - lighter ABV, clean, tasty. I liked it.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass. No bottling date can be seen.

Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy copper golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Solid three fingers of white creamy head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A bright hop forward aroma with good citrus and floral hints. Citrus hops up front with hints of orange peel, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, and lemon. Also some earthy hints of floral hops and grass. Soft bready malts in the background with hints of biscuit, wheat grains, caramel, cracker, and yeast. Also a light hint of honey sweetness. A very nice juicy citrus aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a bright juicy citrus hop driven taste with some earthy grass. Solid taste of citrus esters up front with notes of oranges, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, tangerine, apricot, and lemon. Also in the hop mix is some biting pine resin, grass, and floral hops. Solid backing of soft malt sweetness with a taste of biscuit, wheat grains, caramel, cracker, yeast, and a slight taste of sweet honey. A very solid West Coast style tasting IPA.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and fairly drying feel. Pretty smooth and crisp.

Overall: A very solid West Coast style session IPA. Very good citrus flavor. Impressive for the low ABV.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Lagunitas mason Jar.

This beer made a very distinct popping sound upon popping off the bottle cap.

A- A bright golden yellow with a fat foamy two finger white head. You can tell just by looking at this beer that it is very well carbonated. Upon swishing around it leaves a great deal of lacing along the sides of the jar. Excellent head retention!!

S- I can smell the sweet citrus fruitiness the second I pop off the bottle cap. There are some strong orange and tangerine notes as a well as a bit of a slightly sweet biscuit-like aroma from the malts.

T- Hoppy. The hops give off some strong notes of sweet orange and citrus fruit. There are some very mild toned down grapefruit notes and some lemon zest notes as well. There is plenty of flavor here without necessarily being intense. It has a sweet malty backbone that blends well with the slightly biting bitterness from the hops. While it's definitely bitter the bitterness is nowhere near overpowering. Very nicely balanced, with a hop kick that, like I said, isn't brutal, but enough to make it enjoyable to hop lovers.

M- light mouthfeel and well carbonated.

O- I did not have incredibly high expectations after trying, and being disappointed with, Laguniatas' Daytime. I have to say though, this is MUCH better than Daytime. This is the kind of IPA I could definitely see myself drinking all d ay, and I would LOVE to bring a six pack of this on one of my next fishing trips. (This is just the kind of beer that's perfect to drink right before you have to go to work...)
