Pours a golden amber color with a small white head that goes away quickly. Has a more of a honey grainy smell than it does hops (this was a fresh can). Has a overpowering honey taste with some hops.

This one has great color when viewed with fire or a well lit area. Real pleasant nose with citrus in the forefront. Taste is solid citrus with a light, not overbearing malt follow. If I could get this local for 9.99 a six I'd scoop it up.

Date code I can't figure out.

L - Deep amber, clear, thin white head, minimal lacing.

S - Citrus and pineapple with a sweet/floral backbone.

T - Lemon, floral, slightly piney on the finish.

M - Light, slightly dry finish.

O - Decent flavor, easy to drink, nice low ABV. I could drink a lot of these in the summer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear gold with 2 fingers of slightly white, frothy, shortlived head that leaves a thin coating of patchy lace. Aroma is light citrus & floral with a slight tropical hint backed by a thin sweet malt. Taste is herbal & citrus hops backed by a thin caramel sweetness. Finishes with a resinous pine & grapefruit pith hop bite with pepper & a bitterness that like Green Man IPA intensifies & lingers long in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation, crisp & prickly.

Poured from a can into a Wicked Weed IPA glass. Clear and dark gold in color with 3 fingers of well-retained foam. Bright citrusy nose. Lemon, grapefruit, fresh linen, and a little toast.

Medium-light body with a rather thin feel and a mild hoppy flavor. Follows the nose well, but the flavors aren't as punchy as one would expect. Toast and marmalade up front and lemon character throughout, but a little grassy as well. Not one I would buy again, but still pleasant and refreshing on a hot summer day.

Pours a slightly rusty-orange and golden yellow with a thing quarter finger of bubbles and a slight chill haze but otherwise clear and clean.

Lemony and orangey citrus fruit notes right out of the gate with a breath of tropical fruit and a whisper of bready toasted malts.

Orange, grapefruit, lemon, and tropical fruits dance on the tongue while the biscuity toasted malt backbone lends a nice sweetness to the overall flavor but still lets the hops shine. A slightly herbal/grassy bitterness emerges on the swallow, but is wiped clean before the next swallow and does not linger.

Light-medium bodied, medium carbonation, crisp, balanced.

Overall, during my visit to Green Man Brewery I enjoyed many of their beers on tap, but this one absolutely stood out and seemed like a familiar old friend reminiscent of a local Chicago favorite of mine. Needless to say I grabbed a few six packs before I left the brewery, but I can outright say if this was available in my local area it would be a staple in my fridge.
