4.1/5 rDev -4%
Pours a light brown/murky golden color with a minimal head. Smells of peaches, nectarines, and some grapefruit notes. Not a very overpowering smell, more balanced and held in check like the beer as a whole. Sweet grapefruit comes to mind from the taste along with the peaches from the nose. So its pretty true to nose in terms of flavor profile. None of these tastes are overwhelming though. Packs a light mouthfeel with a little bit of carbonation, the muted flavor and bitterness makes this one go down very easily, so the drinkability is very high.
An enjoyable standby for most. Nothing mind blowing but it's hard to find a major fault with this beer.

12 oz bottle poured into pilsener glass.
A - Pours a hazy orange-amber with a fair amount of carbonation rising. Took a slightly aggressive pour, but a 2 finger head formed. Head was thin and somewhat fizzy. Quickly dissipated to a slight white ring.
S - Not a whole lot as far as complexity, but fruity hops are noted, and a general flowery aroma. Perhaps dandellion and lilac, I suppose. Smooth and mild malts noted as well. Nice smelling beer.
T - It's a pretty mild tasting IPA in comparison to other's IMO, but it's a great one. Hops up front of course. Grapefruit, lime, dandellion and white flour in the hoppiness. A fairly strong malt backbone is present and can be noted early. Slightly bready, some caramel and angel food cake notes. Very nice tasting beer.
F - Hides the somewhat high ABV well. Very drinkable. Enough carbonation for a fizz fix, but burns slightly on the way down. Overall though, it has a good feel.
O - Happy to find a random single of a Top 250 beer at my favorite local store. Not as flavorful or powerful as some other IPA's, I might put it on the Pale Ale/IPA fringe. But the flavor is excellent, lot's of hops and a strong matl backbone. Highly recommended to any IPA or Pale Ale fans.

A = A very pretty amber IPA, long-lasting head with lacing.
S = True to the label, it is heady with hops!
T = For the IPA lover, this would be heaven; for me, too hoppy, but IPAs aren't a favorite. Leaves a floral, hoppy aftertaste on the tongue.
M = A slight bit creamy and not overly carbonated. Quite nice!
I am not an IPA lover by any means. In fact, I am allergic to the hops as my head stuffs up almost immediately after the first few sips of drinking an IPA. But, the label didn't identify itself as an IPA, only in the verbiage on the back label did I discover its pedigree. So, in fairness, I would have to say in this review that this is one of the better IPAs I've tasted, although I would have initially skipped it if I had known it was an IPA! Very cool artwork on the label, too.

A - A cloudy golden-orange color, with a nice but not extraordinary off-white head. Some persistence, and definite lacing.
S - Does not come out with huge swings, but nice subtle jabs of citrus and pine. Grass and vegetative qualities underlie the stronger fruit.
T - No doubt this has citrus at the front, but perhaps most surprising for me is which - lemon notes are near the top, with tangerine and orange underlying, fading into some pine and grass, with some sweetness. Given the strength of the hop, the finish is surprising in that there's not nearly the bitter bite you might expect.
M - With moderate carbonation and only minor drying, this is a very easy beer on the tongue.
O - I really enjoy this beer, and there's no doubt for me that I will be returning to it as a regular staple. I am a huge fan of grapefruit notes and the hops that make those possible, but this makes the case for other citrus themes from the hop. Top notch.

Always in my fridge. Always been a go to beer. Finally a review.
A - never really understood the point if this category. But what the heck, looks like a beer. Nice head amber orange color.
S - hard to beat. Beautiful aroma. Flowery, citrus, piney hop wonderfulness.
T - taste like it smells. Pich up something different everytime. Citrus orange, touch of grapefruit, sweeter tangerine maybe. Just enough malty backbone and sweetness to make you want to sip and sip again.
M - awesome everytime. Touch of creaminess before the perfect amount if carbonation hits your tongue. Goes down smooth but the hop bite is there and I find it consistent from beginning to well after swallow.
O - one of my favorites. Nothing obnoxious or mind blowing just keep drinking this and you will never grow tired or bored of.

A: Golden with a white head.
S: Tangerine, tropical fruit and papaya in the nose. Smells great.
T: Taste is pretty much the same, tangerine, lots of tropical fruit and papaya.
M: Very smooth and easily drinkable. Medium bodied.
O: This one was built up in my mind from things that friends had said, and it did not disappoint, which is quite noteworthy. So often beers are overhyped and disappointing.
