4.5/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- pours an orange copper color, crystal clear. White head with good retention. Lacing is plentiful ringing the glass after each sip.

S- Big balanced grapefruit and pine and some mango. Malt comes through as well. Hops are very northwest.

T- starts out with pine and grapefruit along with some breadiness and mango notes. The finish is very hoppy, oily and drying but clean. Long finish.

M- light and appropriate carbonation is pleasing on the palette.

O- great American pale that is a great representation of the style: both hoppy and balanced, resulting in a drinkable offering. Excellent.

Poured from 16oz can. Has a golden color with a two finger head that settles to a thin cap. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left down the glass.

Relatively straight forward and balanced aroma of citrus hops and bready malt. Smells more of oranges rather then grapefruit. Has a bready malt foundation that I prefer in my pale ales. Slightly more hop forward in flavor than the aroma led on. Orange and orange rind flavor with hints of hay. Slightly bitter finish.

Not a big beer and is nicely carbonated. The best beer I have had from Lucette. Also a pretty good value with a 6-pack of pounders for $10.

Wow, all this drinking and I am just starting to put a dent in this big ass box of beers from woodychandler. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a caramel color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus and hops. Taste is hoppy, pine, citrus, bitter, tasty and enjoyable. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a flavorful and quality beer.

Into a fluted tulip glass it pours a bright saturated orange with slowly rising carbonation. A finger of foam on top, with a halo of delicate lacing in the glass. Swirling rekindles a fine skim across the surface, but the foam fades away fairly quickly with a collar of foam around the edges.

Bright citrusy hop aroma, fresh and green, slightly dank.

Moderate hop bitterness, citrus peel flavors, light pale malt, and a resiny feel that sticks to the teeth. Light bodied and very drinkable. Reminds me of a certain local favorite, Daisy Cutter, though with a more citrus based hop profile. A nice hoppy session ale, on the level of Indeed Day Tripper.

Had Easy Rider on tap at Mavericks Wood Grill in Champlin for Mother’s Day!
A – Poured with a finger of foam with a decent lacing around the rim. Good amount of carbonation present. Burnt yellow color

S – Picked up citrus and lemon notes with a little pine

T/M – Lighter to medium bodied brew. Smooth on the tongue. Picked up slight taste of tangerines and lemons with a little bitterness at the back end. Not overly hoppy but noticeable

D – Tasty easy drinker. Good sessions brew sitting just over 5%. Not overly hoppy or malty. Nice refreshing brew that could be enjoyed on a hot summer day. I would recommend this brew and will have this again

I had this on-tap at Devil's Advocate in Minneapolis. Served in a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber with a finger of creamy off white head. The head fades to a layer and leaves some lacing on the glass.

Smell: Mild but hoppy. The hops smell a bit green. I'm also getting just a hint of orange peel.

Taste: This beer has a very nice balance to it. Citrus peel hops with a grassy quality along with a nice toasted malt backbone. Slightly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a finish that's a bit dry.

Overall: I liked the balance and the hop profile to this beer. Very easy to drink, I would definitely have another.
