Pours a cloudy golden color with a poorly retained one inch head and minimal lacing. Citrus, hoppy armoma. Taste is very mild, one of the dryer IPA's that I've had, hints of orange and grapefruit, mild bitterness. Overall light and very drinkable, but nothing special.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a foamy, not creamy head. Great citrus-hoppy aroma. Mild taste that gives you the gist of an IPA, but definitely lighter in flavor and duration of flavor. Good if you plan on having a few. You can enjoy the aroma in lieu of the full complexity of flavor in a full-fledged IPA.

12 oz can poured into nonic pint

A refreshing, fresh-looking, copper-tan ale yields notes of citrus rind, flower stems, mint and coriander. The nose has a slightly lemony bend. Dry and crisp on complexion, perhaps a bit too dry, as the hops bitter toward the finish, leaving a slight astringency between sips. However, the light complexion and citrusy undertone makes this easy to throw back, and would hit the spot on a hot day

I had this out of a 12oz can. I really was not feeling this IPA, personally it was very light and watered down in taste. On the plus side it did not really have a bitter aftertaste and is a good session beer (just not my kind of beer).

Didn't like the balance; more malt than I would liked to have had in an IPA. Was a bit cloudy and didn't have much carbonation at all. Maybe it was just my bottle but I'm not feeling this one too much. For sessions, i'd go with a Pinner, Easy Jack, or GF Citra...
