Picked up a fifteen pack (sweet gimmick, like old Stroh's) today at Lowes Foods. Reddish golden color with spotty, soapy head with miniature lace. Nose is cirus based with a touch of bitter pine. This is a beer I've planned on reviewing for a while.

Solid bitterness throughout the flavor, mostly pine and lemon. Unfortuanely, I do feel there is an abundance of carbonation midway through the sip. The aftertaste, like the whole beer, is pleasant but restrained. Texture is mostly okay apart from the carbonation.

I guess I'd characterize this as the "light beer" version of an IPA if that didn't sound so preposturous. Decent, and probably tasty while paddling up a river but not an IPA to look for generally.

Gold in color with a small white foamy head.

Im getting piney and floral hop aroma.

Taste: mild bitterness up front, piney flavor follows, a bit of citrus as well but very minor. A little over carbonated for my personal taste.

A good low ABV beer with a solid hop presence.

Bottled 2/24/16. Poured into a clear glass.

Amber color with a modest white head. Nice color but nothing exceptional. Nose pleasantly hoppy. Piney hops first & foremost, and behind that a slightly more weedy smell. Taste is rather modest. Starts pretty thin, opens a bit but never really impresses. Hops over very light malts, not a lot of excitement. Mouthfeel clean enough, but not especially notable. Just not robust enough to excite me.
