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

12oz can poured into wine glass.

Appearance-pours a golden orange with a thin off white head which disappears quickly. Nice bits of lacing dancing around the glass. 3.75

Aroma-right off the bat I'm getting a wild flower musk then orange creeps in. Almost a white wine aroma. 3.75

Taste-creamy orange apricot, grapefruit, hints of honey. Very sweet, there is very little bitterness to be found. Nice to see an IPA that doesn't pack the hops in just because the status quo says you have to. Nice even taste. 4

Feel-great feel, lighter side of medium body, ABV sits well, very drinkable, good for a session. 4.5

Overall-support local brews! This is a lighter IPA then you usually see these days. Could also be a good intro into this category for a newbie. Die hard hopheads might not find a lot in this one, but I feel it's overall evenness and thirst quenching ability make it a great summer beer. 3.75

A: First off i want to say the design on this can is awesome! poured a light copper. a good amount of carbonation is coming up from the bottom on this. it left a two finger bright white head with large bubbles that held on well.

S: first thing that catches me a sweet tropical fruit note. pineapple, fresh orange juice and a touch of grapefruit. there is a floral note on the end.

T: Very earthy and floral. Herbal. a little onion in there as well with a nice dry bitter finish. But there is a nice caramel sweet malt backbone. and the more i drink the more the citrus shines! orange zest, a squeeze a lemon and a dry grapefruit. an herbal pine in there as well! some acid on the finish makes your mouth crave more. balanced nicely.

M: its pretty light on the palate. medium carbonation. the bitterness is sticking around on the middle of my tongue which is excellent.

O: This is a great brew! its refreshing but bursting with flavor. The aroma is much more tropical fruit forward than the flavor but its has alot of citrus and earthy, herbal, resin in the flavor. this is a great session ipa and i could probably drink a case of them! 91

Love that a new exciting brewery is has made its place in the growing Cincinnati craft beer scene. Happy to finally try it.

Pours a surprisingly golden, clear yellow with just a touch of copper. Much lighter and golden than most IPAs, but not off putting. Soapy white head that quickly filled up my snifter. Its reduced but hanging around for a while.

Nice fruity, resiny, dank hops in the nose. Maybe some lemongrass in there too. Sweet caramel whiffs as well.

The flavor is lighter than I expected but very very refreshing. sweet up front, with a mild bittering on the tongue. Grapefruit rind, lemon, just overall subtle citrus flavors with pithy bitterness.

Light, airy, slightly thin, easy drinking, Great IPA for a hot day.

I like this. This is an IPA for people who like Pale Ales and dont like big, malty IPAs. It drinks really really easy and leaves a nice bitterness behind. A must try if you have access to it.
