Had this on 2014-06-29 at the brewery.
A - Cloudy yellow-orange with a 1-finger white head and light-moderate lace.
S - Pineapple, pine, lots of gooey hop floral. Very nice.
T - Hop-bud forward, then pineapple and grapefruit with a mild grain flavor. The sweetness fades very quickly to a dry, pine and grapefruit flesh and significant zest bitterness that lingers quite awhile.
M - Light body and medium carbonation. Dry and prickly. Refreshing as long as you enjoy lingering bitterness.
O - A nice example of a session IPA; emphasizing the aroma and bitterness more than the malt. I like it. I had it the next day (while writing this review) side-by-side with a Fat Head's Sunshine Daydream, which I liked more, but it is 4.9% ABV and this is 4.2% ABV so it's not a head-to-head comparison. I'd say in this ABV range and session IPA style; it competes well with the best of them.

Can from trade as an extra. Thanks! Pours hazy yellow with a tiny fizzy head that disappears quickly. Fresh lemon peel and onion hop aroma and very light pale malts. Flavor is light pale malts with a nice sweet citrusy hop character, some hay. Some juiciness. Pretty flavorful. Ther German influence is definitely there and it is almost like a super ultra hopped up pils, but finishes extremely clean. Light plus bodied with medium plus carbonation. Lost a couple points on appearance but this is good stuff.

Pour is a haze pale golden yellow with a tight white head. Nose is extremely hoppy, tons of citra hops with a grapefruit and tropical punch and light pale notes. Taste is a clean blast of citra with a stronger grain presence. This has quite a strong hop punch, lots of grapefruit and pineapple, Well carbonated and fairly dry with a moderate bitterness through the finish.
