16oz. can courtesy of Ineedabeerhere (thanks Joe!). Served in my Harpoon IPA glass. Pours a translucent straw gold with a loose, half-inch bright white head that dissipates into a soapy froth. Tropical fruits and grapefruit notes are evident off the pop. Once in the glass, there's a hint of pine, followed by a slight yeast presence and some cereal grains; however, the fruit character drops off a bit. Taste is not as bright as the nose - citrus, noble hops and light, toasted malts, with some residual bitterness at the finish. Mouthfeel is light with a lively, almost prickly carbonation and mild acidity. Overall, a great session APA, although I have to say that I enjoyed this on draft a little bit more.

The beer pours a hazy and cloudy straw yellow with a slightly orange tint. Off white head quickly fades out to a thin collar. Scent of pine, grapefruit and tropical fruit.
First impression is that themuthfeel is a bit fizzy approaching seltzer. Taste begins with a bready sweetness and turns bitter with a nice floral and citrus flavor. Finishes with a bitter hop bite. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Good for a hot summer day and enjoying a few. I like the move by some breweries to offer lower alcohol beers that are full on flavor, but they can be difficult to make with less to hide behind.

First had: on tap at Carton
Hazy golden-yellow pour with a small bubbly head that fizzled down to a ringlet, leaving a few specks of lacing on the glass. Pretty surprising blast of hops in the nose, citrusy, piney, crisp. For a 4.2% brew, this really had a lot of flavor, and the hop profile almost pushed it into IPA territory IMO. Citrus pith, lemon and orange, pine needles, floral notes, crisp bitterness that didn't turn foul in the aftertaste. Body was light-medium, mouthfeel was snappy and dry, carbonation was moderate. Simple and flavorful. I could see this being an everyday beer.
