Had a liter at Closed for Business...
A: Served in 1L stein - its a nice, golden orange, capped with a one inch layer of cream colored foam; light sugary lace is left by the small amount of retention.
S: Light, bready malts; tropical fruit notes / orange / pineapple.
T: Light, light caramel sweetness accentuated by sweet citrus and tropical fruit hoppiness; nice and crisp, and just a touch sweet.
M: Medium-bodied; carbonation is in the medium / medium-high range; just a smidge of dryness in there which is cut a bit by the sweeter nature of this beer.
O: I've had this beer a few times and have always enjoyed it - hence the liter! I think its one of the more drinkable IPAs out there - not crushingly bitter, yet still good for a hop fix and some refreshment. A great summer IPA -

Pours a very clear, straw color, modest head. The aroma is skunky hops, not overpowering, but solid. Unfortunately, the taste doesn't quite hold up. It's good, but a step below the smell. Crisp, dry, some subtle citrus hops... Mouthfeel is great in most ways, but it seems undercarbonated to me. All in all, a solid IPA that you'd be happy to drink any old time. Impressive for a beer that is so mass produced and widely available.
