One of the best beers I've tried. Wonderfully balanced with the lager and IPA. PERFECT!

A - Clear golden in a pint glass.

S - Hop aromas are present. The smell is not strong or overpowering. It's really like an IPA light.

T - Again the IPA light theme is what I'm going with. The flavor of the beer is hop forward with citrus and floral notes, but the finish is very clean and refreshing with little to no bitter.

M - Very light and refreshing. Drinks very easy and the alcohol presence is not there. Perfect for a hot day.

O - While I personally love hops I hate overly bitter beers. This gives me the best of both worlds. It's a hoppy beer for sure and I really enjoy it. The cost point is outstanding at $4.99 a bomber. It's not the easiest beer to find. I've had it both on tap and in the bottle and have never been disappointed.

Pours a golden color, a little paler than an IPA, had a nice strong head. The nose is a lot of floral hops with no to little malt. The taste is great, it is a little lighter in maltiness than an IPA, very slight buttery. Has a great smoothness in the mouthfeel that I thought complimented the hops very well. I was glad I ordered this, I drank it while watching an evening football game, I can see doing this a lot, and ordering numerous of these in an evening.
