On tap at The Top in Gainesville. Pours slightly hazy golden with a small fluffy white head. Not a huge aroma here but some nicely floral hop aromatics with a hint of hay and light fruits. Flavor is lightly bitter, crisp, with a nice mix of grass, light citrus, and floral notes, and of course some of that characteristic SN flavor in there that I can’t describe. Light bodied with plus carbonation. Nice beer.

The nooner session is decent but not as good as others....e.g. Founders All Day. The beer pours a nice golden color with thin white head. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a solid offering but not the best.

Hazy pale gold with a large amount of suspended particles. Decent white head with good lacing. Smell is mostly floral hops. Taste is floral light grapefruit hops with minor malt for backing. Mouthfeel is light to medium and adequete carbonation. Overall a decent "light" IPA. Bottled on date is 1-29-14 so take that into account . I would rather they bump this up to about 5.5% to get a bigger flavor profile.
