16 0z pounder pours a cloudy medium amber with decent head and lacing. Nose has plenty of floral and citrus notes, with peaches. Taste of tangerine, pine, and floral hops. Nicely carbonated, medium finish, nicely bittered aftertaste that begs for another sip. Some breweries would probably call this a "session IPA", but not knowing a thing before about this brewery before I tried this beer, I must say I'm impressed. A nicely balanced sessionable hoppy pale ale.

Poured from 16oz can. Has a golden color with a two finger head that settles to a thin cap. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left down the glass.
Relatively straight forward and balanced aroma of citrus hops and bready malt. Smells more of oranges rather then grapefruit. Has a bready malt foundation that I prefer in my pale ales. Slightly more hop forward in flavor than the aroma led on. Orange and orange rind flavor with hints of hay. Slightly bitter finish.
Not a big beer and is nicely carbonated. The best beer I have had from Lucette. Also a pretty good value with a 6-pack of pounders for $10.

Wow, all this drinking and I am just starting to put a dent in this big ass box of beers from woodychandler. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a caramel color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus and hops. Taste is hoppy, pine, citrus, bitter, tasty and enjoyable. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a flavorful and quality beer.

Into a fluted tulip glass it pours a bright saturated orange with slowly rising carbonation. A finger of foam on top, with a halo of delicate lacing in the glass. Swirling rekindles a fine skim across the surface, but the foam fades away fairly quickly with a collar of foam around the edges.
Bright citrusy hop aroma, fresh and green, slightly dank.
Moderate hop bitterness, citrus peel flavors, light pale malt, and a resiny feel that sticks to the teeth. Light bodied and very drinkable. Reminds me of a certain local favorite, Daisy Cutter, though with a more citrus based hop profile. A nice hoppy session ale, on the level of Indeed Day Tripper.

I had this on-tap at Devil's Advocate in Minneapolis. Served in a standard pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a clear amber with a finger of creamy off white head. The head fades to a layer and leaves some lacing on the glass.
Smell: Mild but hoppy. The hops smell a bit green. I'm also getting just a hint of orange peel.
Taste: This beer has a very nice balance to it. Citrus peel hops with a grassy quality along with a nice toasted malt backbone. Slightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a finish that's a bit dry.
Overall: I liked the balance and the hop profile to this beer. Very easy to drink, I would definitely have another.

poured 16oz can into snifter. Less than a month old since there is a limited supply that makes it to Madison.
A - Dark orange/rust with thick 2.5 finger white head with nice retention. Thick collar and a good amount of lacing.
S - Very well balanced. I get citrus, grapefruit, some orange pith, pine. Sweet bready malt and caramel.
T- It is resiny, with bitter citrus hops, mostly grapefruit. A sweeter bready and caramel malt brings the middle to a balance and it finishes with a pine bite and more grapefruit pith. Very well balanced.
M - Lighter body with a dry finish and good carbonation.
O - This is a very nice APA. And to think it is a six pack of 16oz cans for under $10. Ridiculous!

Poured into snifter glass.
Appearance: beer had a golden reddish orange hue. Completely opaque but not cloudy. Foam was presentable but broke down quickly. Plenty of lacings.
Smell: very tropical and flora aroma. Picked up plenty pineapple.
Taste: very bitter with notes of grapefruit. I anticipated it would be sweet because of the fruity aromas, instead its very earthy, grassy and bitter. Absolutely no malty sweetness shines through; the hops are the centerpiece. It packs that very nice bitter punch while still tasting like an APA, not IPA.
Mouthfeel: very light bodied and crisp.
Overall: this is a beer I could drink everyday. I love how the aroma and flavors contrast each other yet still comes together. Even better, it comes in 16 oz cans and sold in 6 packs for less than ten dollars!
