Pours a crystal-clear light pale amber. 1/4" Bright white head fades to a white rim with a thin crust across the top of the glass. Visible small effervescence, and gobs of lacing left on the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Powerful grapefruit and resinous hops. Nice aroma. LEss malt in the background than even Fat Head's Headhunter.

Taste: Nice. This is a balanced IPA I can live with. Sweet, fruity arrival. Light maltiness with an earthy/yeasty taste across mid-palate, then a clean, hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel: Overall light sensation on the tongue. Slight, slight slickness.

Overall: This smells like an IPA but drinks like a wheat ale. Very much along the lines of a Bell's Oberon, but hoppier. Would definitely buy this again.

Serving type: can

Poured from the growler into a tulip. Has a great white head, leaves nice lacing. Appears a nice light orange, to yellow, color.

Nose is great. Tons of citrus and tropical fruits, lots of complexities. There's also a good sweetness to it as well. Each sip starts out sweet, with the citrus following up quickly, and the bitterness following up. Everything just works together very well.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with good carbonation levels. No stickiness left over, and it goes down very well. Overall this is very enjoyable. On a warm night, this is perfect. Can't wait to grab some more.

12 FL. OZ. can
Served in a tulip glass

A - It is golden colored with a slight haze. It is topped with a couple inches of white head.

S - I get some spiced pear with citrus notes.

T - The pear comes through in the taste first. Then I get some citrus. Then finish is bitter but not too bitter.

M - A bit thin.

O - I have had this beer on tap a couple times. I was happy to see it canned. It is an interesting beer. It reminds me of a hoppy Belgian pale ale. The canned version is not what I remembered the draft tasting like. It's definitely worth a try, and it's great to see another Ohio brewery canning.

12 ounce can, I believe this was just canned a week or so ago. Served in a DFH IPA glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like wheat, citrusy hops (grapefruit, lemon peel), and some clove. I think the taste is just like the aroma, but there's also some tropical fruit and a bit of mango noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit coating with moderate carbonation. It's also refreshing and easy to drink. I liked this brew, it's a good wheaty/citrusy IPA. A good summer beer! $8.99 a sixer.
