3.5/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 745-746/140331. Sampled on May 30, 3014.

The pour is a milky golden pale yellow with a white foamy head that builds up quickly and fades away slowly.

The aroma has a nice nose of pine, resin, citrus, grass, and a touch of roasted malts.

The body is in the medium range but smooth.

Pretty easy to drink session IPA with a forward grassy and citrus hop flavor balanced somewhat evenly with the roasted malts.

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Extremely cloudy with an orange-dirty gold color. Small head but great lace on the glass.

Fresh citrus-like hop nose. Light malt far in the background.

Smooth flavor, especially up front. Slightly sweet, pale malt flavor initially. The hop is actually subtle until the swallow where it is dominant but not dominating. The aftertaste is balanced. The body and bubbles are typical for the style.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a gold straw-like color with a really nice two finger head. Carbonation bubbles are coming to the top and some nice and sticky lacing. Looks pretty nice.

S- The aroma on this beer is very reserved. Some subtle earthy and pine qualities that are very pleasant. Just a bit of citrus fruit and a very slight hint of malt. Understated but nice.

T- The earthy and pine characteristics dominate throughout. The little bit of citrus fruit that is present in the head is not present here, although there is just a bit more malt here. Low but reasonable and appropriate hop bitterness for this IPA.

M- A fair amount of tingling carbonation. Not thick by any means but has a pleasant amount of body and goes down impressively smoothly. Incredible easy-drinking and refreshing IPA.

O- An incredibly accessible American IPA that certainly lives up to the "Easy-Drinking" claim on the label. Certainly not the most flavorful IPA and one that hop heads will probably be disappointed with. However, this should appeal to the masses and could convert many a beer drinker that has sworn of IPAs.
