Had on tap at the Blind Pig in Champaign. Served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear amber and golden straw mixture with a 1 finger frothy white head. Leaves some splotchy lace down the glass.

S: Light citrus with a resiny pine and some subtle bready malts.

T: Sugary candied fruits are present in the opening with a subtle grass and pine. This all rest on a decent caramel backbone.

M: Light bodied with a refreshing finish. Great carbonation.

O: This was a very decent beer. It didn't wow me with any flavors, but a solid offering at a cheap price.

12oz bottle into pint glass.

Pours a deep gold color with a slight amount of haze and a one finger off-white head.

Nose is spicy with piney aromatic hops and highly aromatic malt, biscuit, and honey notes. Slight citrus juiciness.

Sweet, juicy tropical fruit and citrus flavor and a light but full malt body provide a delicious taste experience.

Moderate carbonation with a crisp finish.

Overall a solid session IPA with nothing too unique about it but a full-bodied and well-rounded flavor profile.
