Light copper colored with a half inch of creamy off white. Moderate lacing. I'm smelling a light lemon hop note. I'm tasting a light lemon to grassy hop flavor along with some gentle, light, crackery malt. The mouth is fairly smooth and crisp.

Poured into a snifter. Golden color with a two-finger off-white head. Nice lacing in the glass. Nice aroma with grapefruit pith and some earthiness. A little pine also. The taste was primarily bitter citrus, rounded out with a little pine and grass. Dry, bready malt that stayed out of the way. Light bodied but did not seem watery. Crisp finish. I enjoyed this one.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours orange-yellow with a small white head. Smells of citrus hops, not too strong, but not weak either. Tastes of citrus and earthy hops, nice combination. Beer is light bodied and very easy drinking. Overall, an above average beer.

12oz. can into a Surly teku.

Nose is clean. Some fresh cut grass and pine with a touch of zest and soapiness. Beer opens crisp and refreshing. A very light hop bitterness with a waxy, hop finish. A little tartness also. Real drinkable. Body is light with ample carbonation. Aggressive on the palate and dry going down. A great summer beer.

The prototypical lawnmower/beach/bbq beer. It serves its purpose.

Poured from a 12oz can with a best by date of 1/17/18; into a pint glass.
Appearance- a clean gold with a few streams of bubbles that maintain a thin, bubbly white head. Lacing is weak.
Smell - a crisp malt driven nose with merely a hint of hop flower.
Taste - tempered hop flavor profile with a much stronger pale malt presence, but enjoyable nonetheless.
Feel - light, crisp and refreshing crusher.
Overall - a 15 pack for 18 bucks is a great deal for a low abv beer that you can kick back with all day. Pretty weak though, even for a session IPA.
