Pours the lightest straw color, I've ever seen in a beer; almost like lemonade, with a modest head. The smell is divine. Strong, citrus hops! If that smell were a cologne, I'd wear it every day. Unfortunately, the taste, while very good, does not live up to the aroma. It's got the hops, very little malt, very little body... classic session ipa, but the hop flavor just falls a little short of what you're expecting after the smell. Overall, a great hoppy session ale and I'd drink this any old time. Glad to have finally found some, I've been hearing about it for a year or two now.

The beer comes in a pale straw color.

The aroma has a big punch of tropical of oranges, peaches, apricot marmalade, with a bit of pine dankness in the back. A hint of burnt rubber.

On the flavor, there’s mostly grapefruit that grows and grows. On the back, there’s a bit of green grassy and leafy hops as the beer dries out. Lively carbonation keeps the beer going along with a medium plus bitterness offer more flavor. More of that burnt rubber on the palate.

The body is medium, medium minus. A very thirst quenching beer. This drinks towards a bitter Sprite more than anything.

One of the better session IPAs out there.
