Clean, hop forward aroma. Pours a clear, pale straw color with a white head. Light bodied, a touch of malt sweetness, then tropical fruit and bright fruity hop notes fading to a mild bitter finish. A little simple, but a nice easy drinking session beer.

Can dated 2-2-17. DFH Tulip.

A: pours a dark copper gold with 1 finger just off white carbonation that recedes quickly. Lots of carbonation sticking to the sides of the glass. Modest retention, excellent lacing. Beautiful can art.

S: I am pleasantly surprised here. Very much the new wave floral and resin hops but with a touch more tropical-ish citrus. Mandarin oranges, but dry.

T: yeah, hopwater. Bone dry Resiny arrival. Crisp middle turning to a lingering piney finish.

M: thin, well-carbonated, and refreshing. Some lingering slickness, surprisingly.

O: I am really getting into the session IPA thing, and have found two or three I like, but this one lags a little behind those on account of taste and texture. Aroma and appearance are spot on for this though.

Pours a light copper-gold with a big creamy head that makes it look bigger than 4.5%. Nose is orange rind with a touch of pine rounding it out. Fresh and clean, and again, by for a 4.5% beer. Taste is where it lets down. Watery. However, it a very clean and has a nice lingering bitterness. IMHO, the would be a great hot summer beer vs a spring seasonal.

Appearance: Golden yellow with a decent bit of haze. Soapy half finger of head. Minimal lacing. 4/5

Smell: Canned over four months ago, but wow -- potent. Very fresh smelling piney, dank hops. Not much else to say. Modet floral and citrus characteristics at best ... mostly piney, raw hops. 4/5

Taste: Follows the nose. Resinous hops all over the place with a sticky and bitter finish with just a little bit of malty sweetness. Not a ton of depth, but the raw hop flavor is delicious. 4.25/5

Feel: Medium body with high carbonation. Works perfectly well with the style. 4.5/5

Well done. A little unbalanced/on the bitter side, but it's about what I'd expect from a Light IPA. Not my favorite style, but I can respect what was done here.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 3/2/2016. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, apricot, citrus rind, pine, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, apricot, citrus rind, pine, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, cracker, bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately sticky/resinous, and lightly grainy/creamy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very good session IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours a pale straw yellow color with a touch of haziness and a clear white foamy head. Aroma is grassy with I bit of pineapple core. Flavor is light and fresh, has notes of grassy citrus. Very earthy but fresh at the same time. Almost like a light saison. Overall this is a solid beer.

Solid apa. Nothing exceptional, but solid. I got mostly grassy pine with subtle citrus highlights in the taste. Light-bodied and crisp with lively carbonation. Finishes clean and slightly dry. Not enough complexity in the hop profile to be considered great, but there's plenty going on to keep it interesting for such a low abv pale.
