Pours a two finger white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Slight hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light pine hop nose and flavor looking for the caramel malt to balance the grassy hops but not there. Bitterness throughout. $2.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Appearance: 3.5 | Smell: 3.5 | Taste: 3.5 | Mouthfeel: 3.75 | Overall: 3.75

A: The beer is hazy amber yellow in color—too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down rather quickly, leaving lacing on the surface, a thin collar around the edge of the glass, and lots of lacing down the sides.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy and grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but the hop flavors seem to be somewhat more grassier compared to the smell. There is a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has a nice amount of crispness for a sessionable IPA.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sierra Nevada Celebration pint glass.

The color is a hazy orange with some slight yellowish highlights and a half a finger of foamy white head that leaves a small amount of lacing on the glass.

The smell has some muted fruit aroma that takes some time to be detected. There are hints of tangerine and some flowery aromas that begin to be detected. Some flowery pollen-like aroma hides way back in the background and gives off hints if spring time.

The taste is malty at first with some slight bready flavor that tends to be slightly dry tasting and gives off sound hints of dry clay flavor. The bitterness builds from the outer edges of this beer and the taste seems to get sucked away by a bitter hop flavor that has hints of flower stem and sunflower seeds.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a slightly drinkable feel. At first this beer leaves a unfriendly aftertaste that seems too be but mellows after the first couple of sips. The pallets calms and a smooth aftertaste rolls in.
