3.43/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: orange in color with a 1" head. Some spotty lacing develops during the session.

Smell: light fruit sweetness is all you can detect in the aroma.

Taste: caramel, pear, apples, and a softer than expected bitterness creates a very mild IPA. Definitely leans towards the fruitier side.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp from start to finish. Short lived but fruit leaning aftertaste.

Overall: easy to consume beer, but don't expect a very bitter beer. Can make this a session beer too.

Serving type: on-tap

3/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Dry orange coloring, very clear clarity wise, with a soft carbonation presence. The head is slight, frothy, patchy, and short on retention. Decent spiderweb design for lace on the pint glass.

S: The nose was sweet and fruity as advertised, lime, sugary grains with noted apple and pear juice notes giving this a very fruity appeal. Maybe a dash of sweetened pink grapefruit lingers in the background. light and restrained strength.

T: Very sweet and fruity upfront, apple and pear notes are easily distinguishable, almost juice like in flavor. Smooth, easy and relaxing flavor with some sugary caramelized grains. The finish is dry, clean, not much in the way of a lingering hop presence.

M: Mouthful is lax carbonation wise, personally I prefer a bite in mine. Body is light.

O: Overall aptly suited for the noob ipa drinker or one that doesn’t like overly bitter beers. Again I like my ipas bitter and with some substance body wise and snap carbonation wise. And again sticker shocked at $6.50 a pint for a fruity low level ipa that just didn’t tickle my taste buds enough.

On tap served in a pint glass.

A:Pours amber in color with a finger of white head. Very nice looking beer. Long lasting sticky lacing around the entire glass.

S:Some apple and sweet malt in the nose followed by some piney hops.

T:Nice balanced blend of fruity sweetness and hoppy bitterness. More sweet than bitter.
M: Medium body and carbonation.
Awesome beer! Gonna have to stop by again and grab a growler.
