Here's a smash beer I can really dig, if this beer was available in my area, I think I'd go through a few six packs per summer.
Really good daily banger in this one.

Pours a light straw yellow, slightly hazy, thin 1/3" white head. Aroma is a mild hoppiness, between that old school hop and proprietary new hop, I guess Amarillo was 1st wave proprietary, but it seems so long ago. Anyways, Amarillo rocks.

Taste, man this is such a simple daily banger, just 2 row and Amarillo. Bam, done, that's it. Simple, effective summer beer, very light pale toasted 2 row, Amarillo hop, not too juicy, not too bitter, right down the middle. Floral at times, mild danky herb notes at others.

Crush this beer in mass quantities.

Orange rind, caramel, and grapefruit. Simple and balanced. Medium hoppiness for an APA. A touch sweet, but good. Easy-drinking.

Pours an almost clear golden color with a two finger white foam head that clings tenaciously. Pretty look.

The aroma is initially lemony, then there is a mild spiciness, some other citrus that seems tangerine. There is a bready malt that is strong enough to support the other smells.

The flavor follows. Straightfoward, uncomplicated beer to drink. A little pepperish note comes in eventually, but nowhere near overpowering.

Feel...maybe could be more crisp and that is really nitpicking, but it is medium bodied and carbonation where it needs to be.

This us a very good APA that has everything it needs and nothing that it does not need. Recommended.

Canned on May 15th, today is July 27th, so we're good and it's still definitely summer around these parts. From the can, a hazy light amber pour an moderate head, good lacing and retention. We like the smell coming up -- citrusy and clean. Taste is right in the PA wheelhouse: light on the tongue with a healthy dose of hops overlaying a malt base. Not a complex beer, but a PA should not be something creating 3,000 character reviews, either. Refreshing and a good seasonal offering.

Sunshine in a can. As sessionable as a beer can get from the brewery that just nails it time after time.

Hazy, golden amber. White, foamy head with streak lacing. Aroma is herbal and grassy, with some hints of orange. Flavor is melow, with some citrus & lemongrass coming through in the crisp, clean finish. Yeah, I'll have another.
