3.56/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

L: golden color, gives off an amazing thick top of head that take a while to dissappear, very nice lacing on the glass

S: Citrus fruits like grapefruit and lime, floral hops and pine

T&F: Start of with the hoppy bitterness, citrus notes especially the grapefruit very noticable in the taste, the aftertaste is a little to bitter for my taste. medium carbonation, very bubbly

O: And decent beer, ok to drink but not more than that . I dont think i would have bought this again. Is a lot of better IPA,s out there

Pours two and half fingers of head on a slightly hazy light straw body.
The aroma is mild lemon and lime.
The taste has a sharp pine and grapefruit bitterness, a touch of water and finishes with a longer bitter note.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
Solid flavor, I could drink a 32 oz can of this.

Clear, yellow beer with a foamy, white head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Nose: Nice hoppy nose with touch of grass, lemon, grapefruit, green apple and hay.
Taste: Watery taste. Not all what I expected from the nose! Grass, grapefruit, white bread and herbs.
Body: Light body with light, soft carbonation. Great bitterness at the end.

Not that tasty that I thought when I smelled the beer but overall a good seesion beer a summer night when you have to drive the car home from the dinner :)

Nice, slightly cloudy golden color with nice thick, rocky head finishing with average lacing. Aroma is nice and full of pine and citrus rind. Taste is balanced beautifully with pine hops, citrus, grapefruit rind and some floral. Very sessionable. Great carbonation and feels incredible and cool going down !!

The aroma is impressing for being a session IPA. The taste is a bit thin, but still one of the better session IPA's I've ever had.
