3.74/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a light copper/deep gokden color with a massive pillow of white head. That head never stops! Ha
Smells of faint hops, grass,pine, and a hint of lemon. Very mild toasty grain smell.

Flavor is thin. Nuetral grain, white bread and zippy hops. The second half is hop dominant with slight pine and earth. A bit of citrus fruit zest as well. All flavors are light. Good bitterness on the tail end
Mouthfeel is thin and light, extremely high drinkability. Zesty and tingly hop bitterness

A tasty little light ipa. I like that it has a good malt balance unlike some light ipas. Those just taste like water and hops, but this is tasty and well balanced. I like it.

3.99/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: 1 inch head, dark gold in color, medium-high carbonation, clear

Smell: earthiness and citrus fruits

Taste: caramel, earthiness and citrus fruits

Mouthfeel:slightly bitter, light bodied with high carbonation

Overall: A very refreshing, light and earthy IPA. The citrus hops are there, but the hops never overpower. Tasty, but may require a bit more hop power for those into hoppier IPAs.

4.2/5  rDev +18%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light golden brown color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, light caramelized malts and fruity citrus.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering grassy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is thin but provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid and poundable IPA to drink for a long time.
