Notes: If there was ever an IPA made just for summer, our sessionable Easy Peasy IPA is it! Brewed with tangerine and lemon peel, and Pacific Northwest aroma hops, this is one juicy concoction you can enjoy year-round.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed orange yellow color with a one finger head of fluffy white foam. The head fades rather fast leaving a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is big of grapefruit citrus hops and some sweeter citrus of tangerine and ruby red grapefruit. Along with these smells comes a bit of lemon and a touch of grass.
Taste – The taste begins with a crisp malt flavor that is backed by a rather decent showing of grapefruit citrus hop. The taste follows the nose rather well as some flavors of lemongrass and lemon zest join the tongue. Along with a little bit of a herbal hop comes more toward the end of the taste and leaves one with a moderately to lightly hopped, but rather easy drinking taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is average to slightly thinner in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. Overall a slightly higher carbonation may have been better for the lemon and citrus hop tastes, but overall the feel is pretty nice.
Overall – A decent brew overall, but nothing super exceptional overall. Good but not outstanding..

Poured from the can. Very hazy orange/ somewhat golden color, nice white top. Looks refreshing enough. -(Cloudy/ citrus particles? toward finishing the glass..still nice)
Smells much like the citrus description on the can: tangerine and lemon peel. Zesty scent.
Drinks as well, with crisp, zesty citrus, like an orange-lemonade fizzy brew. Sweet, finishes smooth too. Didn't expect as much. Nicely balanced ipa. Great after taking care of the lawn on a hot TX summer day.

Poured from a can. 1 finger head that does not linger very long. Dark, amber color with some cloudiness. The look of the veer is very appealing, it there is no bouquet. The lack of bouquet matches the lack of flavor. If Budweiser had an IPA bud... this is what it would taste like .

Light amber, slight haze. Medium rising bubbles. Mousse like head. Moderate head retention.

Citrus, tangerine, bright hops, semi-sweet bread.

Moderate hop bitterness, mostly citrus. There some tangerine flavor, it blends with the hop character. Low malt profile, semi-sweet bread. Finish is in the dry side, lingers fairly long. Light-medium bodied, wet, good drinkability, moderate carbonation.

It's not bad, but it's boring.

Bought a 6 pack in Aldersons supermarket in Ft. Worth Texas. Pours a hazy dull gold color with a small white head. Average head retention and some lacing. Aroma and taste, malty up front (dry biscuity malt) followed by citrus hops. Some grapefruit and orange/tangerine. Medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is light, ok bitterness, fairly run of the mill. Nothing wrong with this beer, it is just not a standout IPA.

I had just drank this company's neato bandito beer and instantly lost hope in their product as that beer tastes like a malt liquor like steel reserve but already had their mixed pack. This beer is a very light all day work IPA that just goes down easy and washes that bandito right away. Well I have had better beers I could see adding this one to my rotation of fancier beer. I do love the art on the cans and their little joke type things like their "brewed and bottled by..." that has bottled scratched out and canned scratched above it. If they had put as much time into their Bandito beer as this one they would be a lot higher on my list of good beer. But as for this beer would definitely recommend

Hazy orange with a finger of dirty white froth. Citrus notes and grain to the nose. Subdued hops with a little floral essence in the aftertaste. A tiny hint of caramel. A squirt of lemon. Light of course with just enough flavor to save the palate for other endeavors.

I'm really starting to see a definite place at the good beer table for the Session IPA, and this one just adds to that position.

A suit a certain mood kinda beer, and nothing to be ashamed of.

This beer was loaded with white chunks of something floating around in it,
not very pleasant appearance. This beer still had a very solid and nice citrus and pine aroma that I just enjoy.
I leave the rest for later, maybe at some other time I will be able to enjoy one of these that tastes as good as the aroma smells.

On tap at Star Pizza #1. Fairly turbid dark yellow. Pleasant citrusy aroma. Balance is good...at least it's not loaded with caramel malt sweetness. If I tasted this without knowing the style, I would guess "APA" but I suppose an IPA that is brewed to be "crushable" (do you love that expression as much as me? (((rolls eyes)))) ) is pretty much a pale ale. This is pretty good, if a little one-dimensional. The hops seem to be citrusy with none of that piney dankness that my favorite IPAs give me. I probably won't re-visit but I enjoyed our time together well enough.

12 oz can was poured into a Mason jar.

Appearance: A one fingerhead was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy orange color with some clarity and vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Herbal, citrus, slight pine, lemon, pale, toasted, and bready malts.

Taste: Nice and light herbal and hop flavor. Complimentary malt bill, light bitterness, and slight chewy notes.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, medium carbonation, crisp, refreshing, light bitterness, and sessionable.

Overall: A nice sessionable IPA. Easy drinking, but more grapefruit and lemon flavor would have been nice.
