look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Bottle best by 7/13/14 at 45 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of coriander
Head average (3 cm), white, creamy, fully diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing virtually none
Body very light yellow, hazy
Flavor is sweet, spicy, and citrus flavor; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl, no hops bitterness
Palate is light, watery, lively carbonation

This is a nice little beer which, to me, tastes more like a Belgium witte than an IPA.

had this on tap on Saturday AM at a local "fuzzies" cantina:

A on tap in a frosted mug - head is partially frozen - eggshell white head, just under a finger, honey- amber color and I forgot to check on the clarity.

S nice piney hops LOVEin it

T tongue follows the nose - piney hops and plenty of it with a nice solid BITE

M a bit..oil? but good nonetheless

12 oz.

Pours a light lemon gold, hazy, with a soda pop white head that retains as a lacing.

Smells of coriander, lemondrop, fresh grassy malts, and a light gentle fruity hoppiness.

Tastes of dry grassy malt, lemon citrus, and moderately bitter piney hop.

Medium to full body with stinging carbonation.

A pretty decent summery ale with some nice flavor and full body. It's not super great but it hits the spot on a warm day and goes down pretty easy.
