look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a pale yellow with ample head. Nice lacing.

S: Slight hop aroma with a hint of citrus.

T: Lemon flavor up front. Fresh earthy hops. Touch of malting to make a really nice balance.

M: Light yet with some body - perfect for warm weather.

O: Nicely done and look forward to the yearly release.

Serving type: bottle

3.69/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Clear, light golden, not much carbonation - fairly boring looking actually.
S: Slight grapefruit, some sweetness there maybe, not bad aroma, again, not incredibly interesting.
T: Light and crisp, same light grapefruit flavor, maybe some lemon, maybe some orange, mild but certainly present bitterness, some biscuity flavors, honeyed sweetness. Refreshing and drinkable. I like this, not super interesting, but a solid hoppy beer that doesn't slam you with bitterness. The hop flavor is a bit on the pedestrian side though.
M: Dry, a bit more carbonated than I originally thought. It is what it should be.
O: I like this beer and wil enjoy drinking it in the summer - hence the love...
