Pours a clear light amber color. Head is white with little retention and lacing.
The nose is earthy with tropical like hops notes and a bit of grains in the back.
The taste is light. There is a mild hop bitterness to it but its pretty simple. Not much complexity.
Mouth feel is very clean with moderate carbonation. Light an crisp.

Hoppy and citrus. Grande beer. Great round taste, not sharp and not to hoppy. Although the hops stick with you .

Taste rating in words: Hop around, hop hop hop around.

Pale gold color, decent clarity. Pours bug white head, creamy and lasting

Nice hop aroma...big pine and a little citrus.

Flavor matches the aroma. Nice hop flavor. Minimal malt but expected in 4% beer. Gentle bitterness in finish.

Low/medium body, medium carbonation. No astringency or warming.

Very pleasant session pale ale. Nothing exceptional, but clean and drinkable.

Poured out a clear, golden yellow color with a small, white head. It smelled of citrus and toffee. Some caramel notes, too. The taste fell a little flat. The flavors were all a little weak.

i really liked this a lot, its absolutely on the lighter side for the style in terms of not only abv, but also grain weight and hop intensity, but its really well balanced and well made, and i think fills a necessary niche in the session beer category. its really light on the grain side, a little orange color to it maybe, but still not at all a malt driven beer, no sweetness at all, and definitely very little body. there is a real high degree of carbonation too, which keeps this feeling refreshing and easy drinking. hop bitterness is very low too, but there is quite a nice hop complexion through the beer, citrus driven, mosaic tasting really, juicy and fresh but not crazy dosed or running away with the thing. the dry finish is nice, and even though this sort of has the motuhfeel of soda, its really a useful beer for all day drinking, better than most that try to do the same thing, and not quite as hoppy overall as some of the session ipa types. i have liked the few beers i have had from these guys, nice to see their cans getting around a little bit!
