Enjoyed this at the Copenhagen beer festival. Reviewed from notes.

A - Poured into a glass a nice hazy golden hue with a fluffy two finger white head that faded very, very slowly to leave sticky lacing and a creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of big pineapple and orange notes. Lots of tropical aromas as well.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Loads of pineapple and oranges, great tropical notes. Super bright.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, crisp, clean.

O - Overall this was a very nicely done IPA from Florida. I really enjoyed the tropical notes going on here. Enjoyed it.

Poured on tap at the brewpub, the beer is a hazy, gold coloring, with a foamy, clingy, white head. Nose of grapefruit, berries, evergreen, and dried grass. Flavors are tangy sweet fruit juice forward, with notes of grapefruit, kiwi, passion fruit, and lemon, with a piney and mossy hops character, and a solid astringency at the end. Light, watery body, with a tart and astringent aftertaste. The finish is smooth, light, and very dry. Unique flavor profile. I like it.

Golden amber with a moderate foam head.

Tropical aromas mix with less tropical fruits, like apple or grape, and even some dark fruit, like a brighter type of fig.

Oaty grains with pine come forward in the flavor.

Feels a bit heavier in the flavor, but not in the texture, it's a unique combination.

Call me crazy, but I liked this one more than Crank IPA. Don't get me wrong. They are both great beers, but I really enjoyed Fixie. It didn't have a lot of the hoppiness of Crank, but it had so much fruitiness on the finish, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass from a crowler. Usually they put the date it was filled on the crowler but this one is missing a date. I know it was filled 5 days ago though.

A- Pours a hazy medium amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge and random splotches of surface foam. Semi-resilient cobwebby lacing.

S- Good bright tropical fruit nose with some sweet malt in the back.

T- You can tell this is a session IPA due to the bready malt flavor in the front, only session IPAs usually give me a nice dose of bitterness. However, this one lacks both bitterness and hop flavor.

M- Slightly sharp with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Basically a hoppy pale ale that's not even that hoppy. Nice effort though.

Hazy and overall kind of dull. It has both a yeasty flavor and feel which doesn't work well worth this sort of beer. Kind of dissapointing compared to what I've had from pegs previously.

Pours APA orange with a nice white head.

Smells like a fantastic fruit hop profile. Giant mango and lemon with light pine.

Tastes great, too, though not as full bodied as the aroma had led me to anticipate. Hop fruitiness throughout, finishing sweet. The back end is not watery, which is often a problem with session IPAs. The sweetness gets to be just a bit much as the beer warms, however.

This is a great beer. A nice session IPA.

Pours a nice yellow beer. Smells a bit of hops. Taste is very light, even a little bit sweet, which is unusual for an IPA. I am not sure if it was coconut or caramel, but whatever it is, this is a chick beer. Chicks are going to dig this one.

I really enjoyed it, this is a beer that many people would enjoy. Not crazy. It stay in the mainstream and is not common.

Great appearance, good head retention, great lacing. Light and slightly creamy in the mouthfeel, although a tad thin. Aroma is watery floral and some grassy sweetness. Taste is also floral and grainy/grassy sweetness. Not bad, but thin, even for a session.

On tap at Cycle Brewing. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange. Nice white head. Wispy surface and great lacing.

Smell - Bright citrus. Orange mostly. Grapefruit secondary. Grainy malt.

Taste - Hefty citrus hop. Some slightly grassy notes. Grainy malt. Minimal bitterness. Drinks like a full size IPA.

Mouthfeel - Not in the slighest bit watery. Great for 4.7% IPA.

Overall - Better than most session IPAs. A little grainy, but I enjoyed the hell out of this.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at the new Cycle Brewing location on Central Ave. in St. Pete. Served in a pint glass.

A: Clear gold, with a one finger white head and lots of visible carbonation.

S: Big hop aroma up front. Tropical fruits, pine, dank grassiness, grapefruit, and a mild light cracker malt presence.

T: Follows the nose, but even more tropical fruits and citrus hop flavors. Light cracker malt in the background with minimal graininess. A nice citrus bitterness in the hang.

M: Light body, lots of carbonation sensation, alcohol nearly absent.

O: Excellent, excellent IPA. This has a large amount and variety of hop aroma and flavors while still being quite sessionable at a fairly low ABV. Very well-done.

American session IPA, had on tap at Peg's.

A: Nice pale cloudy golden yellow.
S: Wonderful juicy Simcoe hops. Smells super fresh and much larger than it is.
T: Follows the nose, pretty big juicy notes and no astringency. The light abv makes it thirst quenching as well.
M: Although the beer is light it maintains a nice pillowy feel.
O: This is awesome, I'll take one of these full flavor super hoppy session IPA's over a malty DIPA anyday. Really like this one, the flavor profile reminds me of the old Square Dancing Cody oddly. You can keep your ZD Indiana.
