This is a clear, medium gold ale. Looks light. Small white head.

I get mostly all sweet citrus in the nose, with a touch of pine. Smells almost identical to Founders All Day IPA. I like.

Sweet creamy flavor up front, a little pine and grass on the way out. Dry, mildly bitter after taste. Pretty mild flavor especially after the first few drinks, but nice balance.

Mouth is surprisingly heavier than you would think from its appearance. Very drinkable and tasty.

A - yellowish golden body with a small white head.

S - fresh citrus is all over the smell, very crisp and fresh.

T - nice fresh pine, citrus notes with a little bitter hops at the very end. Taste doesn't hit you in the mouth but it's nice. Almost an orange tasting aftertaste.

M - DEcent carbonation. Nothing exciting about the feel though. Really just there and then gone.

) - Everything's there but maybe not as much as you'd like it to be. Definitely solid and I think it's a nice refreshing beer to have in the fridge at any given time.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall white head that quickly reduces to a thin layer of bubbles at the edges of the glass. Moderate lacing is observed.

S: The aroma is very similar to that of a west coast IPA - tropical hops (pineapple and mango) with just a hint of pine resin. The aroma of this beer is very strong, I could smell it as soon as I opened the bottle...even before I began to pour it.

T: The flavor is a nice balance between pale malts and pine/tropical (pineapple and mango) hops. There is subtle hints of wheat and citrus zest.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Very drinkable, not a style that I have experienced often but definitely one that I enjoyed. I really liked the aroma of this beer.
