look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle(s) poured into a nonic pint ... not all at once.
Look - Pale, amber/yellow. Head that settles rather quickly. No lacing. Almost looks like an AAL.
Smell - Citrus rind 'n' pine. Touch of wet bread.
Taste - Grapefruit with it's peel, piney hops, and green onion.
Feel - Not as watery as it looks. Medium mouthfeel. Made to drink easy.
Overall - Easy drinking and tastes like a Lagunitas IPA. Made to be enjoyed all day long and I will.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

LOOKS: Pale amber, small amount of tiny rising bubbles. 2 fingers of soapy white head that after a few minutes leaves a half inch layer on top of the beer. Leaves a real nice lacing down the glass.
AROMA: Citrus. Orange and grapefruit. Very mild pine. Sweet malt.
TASTE: Malt sweetness and the bitterness are nicely balanced here. This is not a real bitter beer. The bitterness is right up front and then fades fast at the finish. It is 'bright', and refreshing... at a colder temp.
MOUTHFEEL: Plenty of carbonation, thin in body, and fairly dry.
OVERALL: Along with Founders All Day, this is one of the better session IPA's I've had. Not quite as full in the hop department compared to Founders (at least aroma-wise), or feel,but, maybe a pleasant way to get someone into IPA's.

A: Very light yellow in color with a clear body, a medium amount od bright white head on top with a few frog eyes.

S: Tons of hops, with citrus and tons of pine resin in the aroma as well as maybe a touch of onion or garlic from simcoe?

T: Just a load of hops.. citrus and pine paired with dank and resinous! All the flavor is up front, with a lingering orange flavor in the finish. Surprisingly not too bitter considering the amount of hop flavor.

M: Very light in body, and the carbonation is medium high. Very clean and refreshing feel with a dry finish, and a touch of hop linger.

O: Overall, a damn fine beer. Great flavor and super refreshing.

12 ounce bottle poured into Game of Thrones pint glass.

Pours a clear golden yellow with half a finger of loose, bubbly off-white head that leaves chunks of sudsy lace as it recedes.

Smells of citrus pith, pale malt and soft green hops.

Tastes of lemon and grapefruit pith, crackery malt and more gentle piney hops.

Feels light and refreshing. Body is medium-light with soft carbonation. Finishes off-dry.

Verdict: Recommended. Very refreshing.

Poured from a bottle into a nonic glass. Color is a pale, clear yellow. The smell is just right for me. I was surprised that it had a lot of hop flavor given the description fractional ale. A good beer with a session level ABV.

Good beer. Not exceptional but definitely a quality brew. Nice piney bitterness and overall very crisp, balanced, and refreshing.

Excellent session ale. Loses a little body from a full IPA
but you can keep drinking them without feeling knocked over.
