look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Slightly hazy lemon yellow brew, topped by a sizable fluffy white head with excellent retention and lovely lacing. It takes some patience to finish the pour.

Obvious hop notes in the aroma: grassy, herbal, floral, and grapefruit pulp. There's a touch of grainy pale malt, as well, but no yeast or malt sweetness.

Familiar SIPA flavor: dry biscuit malt which serves only as a base for the hop explosion. Sticky sweet (dank) notes quickly overwhelm the grapefruit peel that first hits the tongue. A touch of orange accompanies the back-end.

A touch more body than many SIPAs, making this fairly drinkable. A dry finish, as one would expect. Fairly long aftertaste of lingering hops.

Another well-executed SIPA, but it's still not a style I particularly love. Tasty enough beer, though, and definitely worth seeking out if you're more of a fan of the style than I.

Great sessionable APA, taste is on point. No glassware needed straight can to mouth beer. It's a beer drinkers beer for sure

Look: gorgeous beer, golden straw color, semi-translucent, 2+ fingers of white head.

Smell: I don't know if this beer includes Mosaic hops, but it has the Mosaic aromas - dank, with a lemony citrus aroma that is magnificent.

Taste: a hop blitz in a velvet glove. Hops all over the place, full of flavors like lemon zest and pineapple and mango, but not a hint of booze, which is what I look for in a session ale.

Feel: very "spritzy," this feels SOOOOO much like a summertime beer.

Overall: I really enjoy a well-executed session ale, and this is exceptionally well executed. Tons of flavor, refreshing, zesty, not a lot (as in no) alcohol heat. If I lived near Gary, this beer would occupy a shelf in my beer fridge in the summer.
