This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking mostly clear yellow color with a light dose of small carbonation to be seen rising to fill a one finger white semi - foamy head that concaves nicely. The smell had a nice blended dose of sweet citrus to bright bitter pine with a little bit of orange as it warmed. The taste copied the smell just right rolling over my tongue in a sweet sticky way. There was a nice sweet sticky citrus aftertaste that lead into a sweet refreshing finish. On the palate, this one sat fairly light and came across pretty sessionable. The carbonation was good for the style and for me as it had enough prickliness but held back just enough to make a great session. Overall, well how about that. Pretty nice AIPA that I could go to again easily.

Pours a clear yellow with a minimal white head that dissipates very quickly but leaves lacing on my glass after every sip. The aroma is faintly lemons and oranges on white toast. The flavor is citrus and a touch of mango. Crisp and easy to drink. I'll definitely buy this again.

From notes taken 03/20/17:

Bright golden yellow, mostly clear but with “inky” hazy swirls. Lighter cream-white head of foam, with decent retention and lacing. Oranges, lemon rinds, resin, grass aromas. Malt and hops combine for an overall fairly tart flavor, but there’s a good balance toward grains as well as light caramel on the malt side, and grass, rind, and black pepper on the hop side. Finish is surprisingly dank for how light this is in all other regards. Medium-bodied, very fine, sparse, and gentle carbonation, just sloshy enough to not be flat.

S: tropical fruit and citrus supported by rich biscuit. Hop and fruit aromas are medium and malt aromas are medium to medium low.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours a golden yellow color with a 1" head that slowly falls.

Smell: light citrus tones rise from the glass.

Taste: caramel, lemon zest, orange, a hint of pine, and a moderate bitterness level.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer, Crisp throughout. Short lasting aftertaste with this beer,

Overall: a decent IPA but overall not a big fan of the lower ABV IPAs as they lack some depth in flavor.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear goldenstraw color with a perky little head; nice stickage and a pretty good coat of lace

Smell: Grassy and somewhat sulfur-filled

Taste: Crisp and dry, with a growing grassy aspect; a hint of lemon, through the middle, with a dry finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; slightly aqueous

Overall: I like a good session IPA but this one tastes rather Germanic, more like a session pils; maybe it's old but without a bottle date, who can tell?

It pours a light yellow with plenty of carbonation. The smell is of citrus(a lemon and orange combined). The taste is the same but with a sweetness to it. The body is thin with just a bit of bite to it. Overall one really enjoyable drink.
