A: This poured a clear light gold with some white head.
S: It smelled like an amazing array of fresh citrus and pineapple, with some bitter pine and sweet honey.
T: It tasted lighter, like bitter pine and citrus with some pineapple and sweet honey. It had a clean and bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Light body.
D: This was a perfect daytime IPA, with great scent and light but clean taste and smooth finish. It could definitely be drunk in mass quantities. Recommended.

bottle into glass

A - A very light straw color. Pours a medium sized head that leaves a ring of bubbles around the surface and moderate lacing.

S - Hops! Pinneapple and grapefruit. Just a tad of funk.

T - Not as much taste as aroma, but still a great hoppy tastse that follows the nose. A bit prickly/resinous with a crisp and clean finish

M - Medium-High carbonation and medium body fit very well

O - In my opinion, this is the best beer i've had in the "small IPA/big PA" category. This one is hoppy yet light, without having the watery feel that similar beers have. Extremely sessionable.

Pours very light straw yellow, this surprised me. Smell is way bigger than expected; west coast hops, citrus, pine. Taste is a little grainy, hop flavor without the bitterness, straw taste, some citrus. Overall this is very very drinkable and has a great flavor, just not a lot of it. This would be a great way to introduce newbies into the IPA style. The highlight of this was the smell, but over all its very light and enjoyable.
