On tap.

A - Nice and clear medium gold color with some creamy white lacing on top, moderate carbonation.

S - Aroma is very faint with some mango and citrus.

T - Citrus, mango, spicy citrus rind, and ends with a slight pine bitterness and some sweet citrus.

M - Full bodied for a low ABV beer.

O - An easy sipper that hits the spot. The faint nose brings the score down a "smidge".

The aroma is all hops. Citrusy grapefruit and mixed tropical fruity note dominate with light malt in the distant background. The flavor has mildly sweet light malt notes with grapefruit and pineapple hoppy notes throughout. The finish is light with only mild bitterness. The overall feel is light and extremely drinkable.

This is an attractive, classically trained, IPA with pretty head and lace and a pleasant, balanced flavor. I really like the crisp but not too carbonated texture. Very refreshing and drinkable. This is a solid brew that isn't too expensive or heavy on the abv yet is still full flavored and delicious. Terrific IPA.

Pours a mostly clear golden color with a fairly well retained one inch white head that leaves spotty lacing. Smells and tastes of sweet malts, grapefruit, grapefruit pith, pine, earthy notes and tropical flavors that I cannot identify. Light side of medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry mouth feel with lingering bitterness.

I really like this beer. I love the bitterness. I’m a big fan of bitter beers. I also like the average ABV. Strong beers are good. This been could be a session beer. Great for the summer. I kayak a lot. Wish it came out earlier in the year so I could drink it all summer.
