look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into pint from tap at hops and pie in Denver. Nice hazy golden with a finger of creamy thick head. Nice citrus and grassy hop aroma. Very subtel but substantial. ...hmm
Great lemony citrus hop flavor..grassy and some late tartness. Really a lot going on for a sub 5abv. Refreshing and very sessionable...great lunch brew.

Serving type: on-tap

3.78/5  rDev +5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

22oz bomber bottle with no date on it. My first beer from this brewery, here we go.

Look is a gold-orange, clear, with decent retention. Smell is light, grainy, with hops that remind me of snpa. Slightly bitter prickly feel, bready malt, apple, pear, pine.

Packs a lot of flavor in, but expensive.

A light yellowish/hay color with a big fluffy white head. Smells piney, hops, and citrus...what one would expect from a pale ale. Lots of hops are forward in the taste, very similar to an IPA but less alcohol. Lacing is excellent on this brew as is the smell and taste. Throughly enjoyed this one, a good beer to session with.

4.03/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear goldenstraw with a magnificent head that leaves a ton of lacing behind

Smell: Gentle tones of bread and citrus and pineapple

Taste: Bready and citrusy, up front, with a bit of pith, in the middle; a hint of lemon in the finish which is otherwise crisp and dry

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I love low ABV session ales that pack in some flavor and this is among that group; not sure about the 32 oz. can, however, as that is a bit too much of a gimmick

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a huge 32 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell has some mild hops, a bit of citrus. Taste is balanced, some citrus hops up front, a bit of malts at the finish. Kind of mild, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and this big ass can is draining very quickly. A solid beer.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, almost opaque, bright goldenrod coloring with a tall, frothy, dense, bright white head. Aromas are very fruity, with a blast of grapefruit, melon, and pineapple. Smells sweet, with some herbal highlights. Flavors are toasted and sweet forward, with a tropical fruit blend of melon, grapefruit, lime, and a backbone of baked bread. Mid-bodied, but the carbonation keeps it light throughout. The aftertaste is tart and sweet, with all the fruit characteristics lingering on a bit. Effervesced, slightly frothy finish, with a very subtle sweet linger. Refreshing and crisp. Solid brew.
