My bestie brought a can of this to Nashville whilst there for my son's hockey tournament. It poured a clear copper with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had tart tangerine notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with sweet tart fruit pizzazz. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

One of my very favorites. Light and bright. Good IPA for people new to IPAs. Grapefruit and citrus and also fresh grass after taste. Chill for 15 minutes before drinking.

From a can at Papadeux while waiting on a plane in Houston. A nice change of pace for an IPA. I don't know if it's big, but it's bright. You can taste the sweetness of actual grapefruit in addition to the citrus hops. Also a little caramel. A light, tart IPA.

Bright orange body with a light tan head that is substantial. The aromas are citrus plus a bit of malt.

Taste is oranges and zesty grapefruit, though the flavors are a bit muted. The can is 4+ months old, which certainly explains that aspect of the beer. Would love to try it fresher.

Bright is certainly a good name for this tasty beer. Easy drinking and flavor filled. Sweet grapefruit, lemon and orangey flavors, plus a touch of sweet bready-ness. Kind of summery but still IPA
