Can - pale straw color with a 1 finger rocky cap. West coast aroma; citrus-pine-fruity. Flavor is fruity-light bitterness with a sweet malt presence, finishes fast and lightly bitter. Weak, thin, sweet and uneventful - add insult to injury it come in a small portion can - wassamatter, afraid someone might actually catch a buzz?

Pours an golden clear with a thin head which breaks quickly, leaving some okay lacing to be found. The smell is citrus and malts with a touch of sweetness. The taste follows the nose, the hops are citra bitter and there is some grassyness to this. The feel is light with a good amount of carbonation. There is bitterness in the finish that helps the overall experience for the posititive.

Not a bad session beer, I suspect this can of being long in the tooth and that may have affected my perceptions. Still, it is in the running for a good beer to have at the lake this summer.

A - From Can N/A

S - pine & grapefruit. Distinct and phenomenal smell. Lots of late hop additions here.

T - citrus hops balanced with bready malt. Sweetness after.

F: a tiny bit overcarb.

Overall, a good option for summer drinking. As mentioned, 5% is higher than most ISA

Craggy, loose of white head over dark sunshine. 3.75
Greasy Citra-esque lemon with some flowers + honey dew. 4
Sweet pastry, then juicy peach, tangerine, and white melon hops. 4.25
Mango comeback and drying linger.
Light, fizzy, slight oil. 3.5

At 5%, this is pushing the boundaries of a session IPA. But it's pushing it oh-so-nicely: bright and greasy, buoyed by hop-enhancing, palate-cleansing carbonation to keep it from cloying. It is quite thin - an English Blonde could fit 80% of this hopping into a 3.7% beer. But I'll take the hit for the piles of tropical fruit and sunny citrus. Not All Day, but tops for Canada. 4.25
