Good citrus American IPA. Very light orange body,a little lace ( though I found it watered down a bit). Cat p aroma in quantity, using lots of citra which imputes a bold taste. Lots of malt, Carmel, and some fruit. Bittersweet finish. Decent drinkability.

A: The beer is crystal clear deep yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that quickly died down, leaving delicate lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of citrusy hops in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but has somewhat stronger flavors of citrus-grapefruit stands out in particular. It has a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied, a little crisp and very dry on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation. The dryness lingers through the finish.
O: This beer reminded me a lot of Lagunitas' DayTime, except that it has stronger hop flavors and lots of lingering dryness. This is a really nice selection if you want something that is packed with hops but is also very sessionable.

Appearance: Arrives with a pale golden color topped by a modest head; not much in the lacing department

Smell: Grapefruity, with just a hint of bready malt

Taste: Just a hint of bread, up front, and then the flavors are dominated by the grapefruit; slightly herbal on the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Refreshingly light, with a very nice grapefruit character; I always enjoy low ABV beers that pack in the flavor

From 11/10/12 notes. Had this on tap at Taproom 307 in NYC down in Gramercy; served in a pint glass. They had several Kuhnhenn beers on tap and had this right after the great DRIPA.

a - Pours a transparent bright yellow color with one inch of white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, grapefruit, apples, some fruity malts, and light floral hops. A nice nose and the hops are there, though not as overpowering as the DRIPA.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange, fruity malts, tropical fruits, apples, floral hops, and some light pine. A ton of hops and fruit, and it gets better as it warms up. A step up from the nose slightly.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink and no bitterness at all. Smooth and crisp; maybe the best part of the beer.

o - Overall a really nice beer, though it is no DRIPA. Seeing the name and reading the description, it looks like they made exactly what they set out to make, and it is a very good beer, but DRIPA was unreal right before it. This one is definitely a little easier to drink, and has a good amount of citrus hops to it too. Well worth checking out, and would certainly have again, though I prefer DRIPA.
