Pour on a beer glass mug. Looks a little cloudy. Smells like pineapple and melon. Taste ok for an IPA but I would not buy it again. Little hop bitterness and lots of fruit taste likes a pineapple.

On tap in Greenville SC in a Gouden Carolus glass.

Clear golden body with a decent white head.
Fruity and faintly piney aroma with hints of melons.
Nicely hoppy flavor that's moderate-mild bitterness. Thin body hints at the low ABV but works well with the medium+ carbonation and dry finish.

Overall: clearly above average session IPA.

Pretty good session IPA. Pours a light gold clear color from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. Small white head with average retention and almost no lacing. Aroma and flavor are citrus hops ( pineapple and tangerine). The elusive taste here appears to be tobacco!!! It all works very nicely. The fruity aroma is somewhat stronger than the taste. There is a noticeable level of bitterness, but this is hardly a hop bomb. Mouthfeel is light, crisp and just bitter enough. Agood session IPA.

L: Poured from a can to a pint glass. Had a pale yellow color and a clear consistency. There was a half inch of creamy head that lasted a below average amount of time. Not much lacing to speak of.

S: A strange aroma: Of course you get the hops, malt and fruit, but there's an odd indefinable quality here that doesn't quite work.

T: Tasted of hops (not as much as you might think for an IPA), malt, lemon, a slight metallic tinge, and a grainy quality. This last ingredient almost throws off the flavor entirely. That being said, the taste gets better as it goes along.

F: An average amount of carbonation with a somewhat slick finish. Light-bodied.

O: Definitely an uneven beer, but light and summery and easy to drink.
