12oz bottle - review from notes

This is just okay, some hops, some malt, a little alcohol... bada bing bada boom. It needs more character, tho, as it stands it's too little of everything

No reason to buy, but I wouldn't turn it down

Pours a golden copper color with a soapy white head. Smells citrusy and piney. Tastes of orange citrus and piney hops. Very bitter for an IPA. Mouthfeel is light to medium. Overall, good summer beer.

Wow, a really good one, exceeded expectations. Not too overbearing with the hops, smooth taste, golden color, goes down nicely and perfect for the Summer months.

Clear, pale gold body with a head which is quick to vanish but still manages to leave a thick ring of film on the glass. The scent and flavor match up nicely, but are too malty for my taste. Dense breadiness is accompanied by honey and light orchard fruit esters, just balanced enough by moderate hop bitterness. For a summer ale, the body is thick and the carbonation is light. I wanted crisp, flavorful citrus with a light grain backbone. I got soggy French bread dipped in fruit juice. Okay, not that bad. Still drinkable. But not something I'd order again!
