A - Clear golden in a pint glass.
S - Hop aromas are present. The smell is not strong or overpowering. It's really like an IPA light.
T - Again the IPA light theme is what I'm going with. The flavor of the beer is hop forward with citrus and floral notes, but the finish is very clean and refreshing with little to no bitter.
M - Very light and refreshing. Drinks very easy and the alcohol presence is not there. Perfect for a hot day.
O - While I personally love hops I hate overly bitter beers. This gives me the best of both worlds. It's a hoppy beer for sure and I really enjoy it. The cost point is outstanding at $4.99 a bomber. It's not the easiest beer to find. I've had it both on tap and in the bottle and have never been disappointed.

Pours a golden color, a little paler than an IPA, had a nice strong head. The nose is a lot of floral hops with no to little malt. The taste is great, it is a little lighter in maltiness than an IPA, very slight buttery. Has a great smoothness in the mouthfeel that I thought complimented the hops very well. I was glad I ordered this, I drank it while watching an evening football game, I can see doing this a lot, and ordering numerous of these in an evening.

Appearance - beautiful golden color, very clear with a nice white head and great lacing!
Smell - decent aroma of citrus and fruit hops. I do wish it was a bit stronger.
Taste - very clean and light to medium body, I love it. Great citrusy hop flavor with a balanced malt and bitterness that doesn't linger. All around just good!

This thing smells fantastic. Clear deep golden color with about 3 fingers of super sticky white head. Perfect marriage of fruity citric and piney hop with clean herbal, earthy, and grainy scents on the nose.
Really really good. Bitterness isn't that of an IPA but hop flavors is. Beautiful ipa hop flavors with incredibly clean attributes, a crisp, solid and grainy malt bill. Sweet dry cereal grains up front followed by the faintest note of underlying fruitiness, big tropical fruit hop punch, citrus and grapefruit, touch of pineapple with a bit of pine. Finishes super clean with a resinous and drying bitterness. Medium bodied with brisk carbonation. This beer should be the epitome of this newly popular style. Delicious, clean, solid malt, bright hop, and balanced with lingering bitterness.
