On tap at Hunahpu Day. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance - Light yellow. A little hazy. Nice white head.

Smell - Citrus hoppiness. Not a whole lot else.

Taste - Nice citrus hop flavor. Light graininess. Pilsner malts actually lend a distinct flavor. Mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Very light. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Nice session beer. Tough to judge it very accurately with just a little taster, but it was pretty flavorful for the quantity I had.

On tap @ Apex

Clear golden yellow with a foamy whey head.

Lightly citric, grassy notes with a crackery backbone.

A quite well done session pale ale. Tasty and flavor while still low ABV and drinkable.

Is this the prefect session hoppy ale? Perhaps.

a very flavorful citrus hop session ipa. a nice compliment to some of the enormous chewy ipas in the boneyard lineup. this one is really pale, just darker than yellow, with a tall white head and a citra type hop aroma that has lemon zestiness, orange sweetness, and even a tropcial fruit element too. the grain is so light though it never really contributes much, and the body feels watery to me, too thin even for this style which banks on that. the hops profile is awesome though, and the beer is super refreshing with its high level of carbonation. its one i would definitely tend to call a hot weather beer, but even with the latest fad for the style, i think the world needs more beer like this. session beer for the hop head. definitely not up to the standard i dont think of some of their more well known hoppy beers, but a nice contribution to the session realm here.

On tap at Engine House 9 on 8.25.14

Smells like a lighter rpm, taste is there, just a bit watered down compared to the big Boneyard boys. At 4% how can you complain or compare.
