look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Clear pale blonde lager-like color, with lots of effervescent bubbles continuing to spiral up to the head. The head is 2 fingers, very fluffy, and deep.

Aromas of fresh pink grapefruit, grapefruit pith, pine, and cracker.

Strong citra notes up front, followed by some pine, biscuit, and cracker. What follows is some dirty tap water and watery pine.

Feel is very crispy, airy, and light. Heavy carbonation.

Overall, Citra Sunshine Slacker falls off halfway through the flavor profile, and I don't think it's a necessary element in a session ale. Flavor can still be prominent and alcohol diminished. I'd like to see more fruitiness and flavor throughout the whole profile, not just the first second of it. Still, not a bad beer on a nice day.

Reviewed from 06/25/2015 - talk about slacker!
16oz can into FW Imperial Nonic glass

Light, bright, and refreshing with good amount of Citra hops shining through
Gooseberry with grapefruit, herbals and a lemony zing, light malt cracker base
Crisp and bone dry in the finish with some mouth puckering linger
Very crushable - would have again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 16oz can into a pub glass.
Appearance- hazy straw yellow with a swirling vortex of light sediment and carbonation building a towering soapy white head. Lacing is strong and sticky!
Smell - tropical and citrus fruit meshed with a pale wheat malt!
Taste - the tropical fruit notes from the nose are absent but the citrus and wheat are tasty!
Feel - light, and well balanced with both citra hops and pale malts.
Overall - I really like the fact this is unfiltered; makes for a beautiful beer! Pretty standard for the style otherwise, though I also enjoy the pint cans!

-spiegelau ipa glass.

A: Strong raging effervesce within an lemonade colored body, cloudy with a crowning, dirty white foam head of 2+ fingers, and of good retention. Beautiful intrigue spiderweb lacing on the vessel.

S: Sour country time lemonade of nice strength, freshly cut lemons.

T: Flavor was freshly cut lemons, fresh dry pale grains, some background tropical fruit of sliced pineapple, semi-dry mangoes, and hints of orange and kiwi-strawberry. Some nice wet citrus and lemonade.

M: Very good and crisp carbonation factor, sharp and tingly on the tongue.

O: Overall you'd never guess this to be a dreaded session style ipa of

Can: Poured a medium dark yellow color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light citrusy hops notes with some bitter notes also apparent. Taste is a mix of citrusy hops with some biter notes apparent and light floral hoppy notes. Body is full enough for style with good carbonation. Somewhat more bitter then I was expecting with hops notes not as juicy/floral as I was expecting.
