Notes / Commercial Description:

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head Tulip

L: Hazy light golden pour. Foamy white head with nice lacing.

S: Citrus and pine... smells like an IPA.

T/F: Relatively light on the malts... some graininess with a good bitter hop presence. Nice citrus notes... grapefruit and rind. Resinous but light. Good carbonation. Finish is citrus.

O: A nice session IPA. Light... drinkable... good bitterness and not boring. All you can really ask from the style.

Pours golden. Foamy, fluffy, tall, white head that lasts a while with good lacing.

Smells citrus, pine, malt, orange and grape fruit.

Tastes bready malt, grapefruit, citrus peel and good bitterness. Finish is dry with a bitter citrus linger. Lighter medium body and fizzy medium carbonation.

Appearance - Pours clear golden color with nice thick fluffy white head leaving spotty but nice lacing.

Aroma - mild citrus aroma, sweet caramel and malts with a hint of pine.

Taste - Hints of orange and pine, grapefruit, biscuit, caramel, pretty bitter.

Feel - medium feel, well carbonated, pretty dry and the bitterness lingers a bit too long.

Overall - A pretty solid beer hits the mark on aroma and flavor I wish the bitterness did not linger so long and the hops were a touch more pronounced.

This was a good session beer - retained a hoppy nose and taste, but with lower ABV as expected in a session ale. If it came in short cans, this would be a regular go-to (otherwise, I end up drinking two tallboys and dropping more cash again next time!).

My bestie from NC brought up a can of this treat. It poured a pale yellow with white head that is leaving a lace. The scent has pine resin. The taste is bitter leaning and not overly easy to drink. Very bitter through the drink. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's ok certainly worth a try but that's about it.

Pours a deep yellow, orangish gold with medium to slightly high carbonation. Aroma comes across pretty well despite being a can sitting in my fridge for a couple of months. At first sniff and taste, grapefruit seems most evident but maybe after my pallette adjusts or the beer warms, more pine comes through. A little watery and lacking in malt but this is a session ipa after all. All in all one of the better examples of the style I've tried but not too much to sets this one apart from the pack.
