Light bodied but full of grapefruity aroma and taste, pours out clear golden with an abundant airy head. Citra hops rule here, easy to drink, and light enough to have a few.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on September 11, 2014.

It pours a pale yellow color with a slight cloud and white fizzy head that slips back after a moment.

The hop and toasted biscuit aromas are nice but not overpowering. Just pleasant and inviting all around.

The body is light and refreshing.

Toasted malt taste at first and then a definite mildly bitter hopped finish. They call it sessionable? Yup, it is.

This is a great 'concert beer' or 'lawnmower beer.'

Very light appearance. Looks about like a macro-lager in the glass. 1/2 finger head. Lots of carbonation. Small bubbles coming off glass.

Wonderful aroma. Lots of citrus and pine on the nose.

Taste is very light. The citrus and pine do come out on the tongue, but not very hard at all. It is a bit watery, compared to a lot of the hop-heavy IPAs that we all love so much, but again, that is intended. This beer is meant to be a very light IPA, one that you can enjoy while working around the house, for instance, and have a six-pack without getting too drunk.

Very light mouth on this beer.

This is a good beer for a hot summer day when you don't want a higher ABV beer. For me, beer drinking can be tricky on a super-hot August day, tailgating at a concert, and trying to make sure I don't get too tipsy before hitting the gates. That's what this beer is perfect for. It is NOT a super-hopped beer. I prefer the stronger IPAs, especially the double and imperial IPAs. That said, for what this beer is, it is done extremely well.
