3.61/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A-Pours a hazy orange hue with a thick, doughy slab of creamy foam. Head dies away slowly leaving lots of cloudy lacing marks.

S-Citrus candy and some cooked grain. Musty grapefruit peel hops. A little grass as well. Light, ghostly sweet malt.

T-Flavor is noticeably citrusy. Oranges and grapefruit. It's pretty much all citrus here. The malt is hard to define besides of its very mild pale and ultra light caramel sweetness.

M-When I bought a single of this I thought it was a Session IPA but it turns out this in both ABV and body is bigger than expected. The bitterness is rather low, however. Medium bodied, softer carbonation.

O-A very generic IPA. I'd prefer more complexity, specifically from the hops. Aside from that, Green Trail is a run of the mill IPA that is tasty but doesn't set itself apart.

A smooth, mild beer that is very refreshing on hot summer days. Don't expect a particularly complex, or even hoppy taste. It's very inoffensive, and would be a good IPA for people who don't love the bitterness and hoppyness of some IPAs. I'd definitely drink it again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy orange brew, little head.

Yeast and citrus aroma, not unlike a tripel or a citrusy wheat beer.

Bitter, citrus, a hint of banana yeast, and a dry hay-like flavor. Tastes like a decent white or Belgian IPA.

Lively with moderate sting; very dry.

This is a decent, refreshing IPA. It's not outstanding, but it's a little different.

Bottle from Pin's. Saw it side-by-side with Flower Power, and decided to try something new. Guess I should've stuck with the FP.

Poured into a handy bell tulip, a hazy golden-orange color, with a small cap of white head; minimal retention and lacing. Unfortunate hints of a malt-bomb right away in the aroma, sugary sweetness, floral notes, somewhat medicinal. In the taste, dry bready malts, corn sugar, citrus juice, with a low-intensity earthy hops, and something of a medicinal off-flavor. Light-medium body, lower than average carbonation. Overall not very enjoyable. Would not get again.
