Enjoyed this light option on a 85 degree fall day. Great flavor for how light this beer is. Nice on a Indian summer day.

Always consistently bright and aromatic. Lower ABV. Consistent clean finish with just the right hint of sour. A nice local brewery to visit with great food trucks.

A great summer beer or drink to have with lunch. Full feel and taste, deep yellow color and good head. Taste is very full for a 4.5 ABV beer and has the fruity feel you would want. A great session beer to mindlessly sip on

i get that this is one of their more popular beers, but obviously its for a reason, this is one of the better low abv dry hoppy new school pales in the game right now, and so what if it is relatively widely available, its sensational. an illuminated yellow color to it, a nice lasting lathery white head from the tap, and just a soft gentle haze to it, not milky or thick at all, glowing in the glass. aroma of fresh cut citrus, i must have caught this one really fresh! lemons and sweet grapefruit and tangerines all come to mind, some citra hops in here i would think, among others, an amarillo or azacca profile i think i get too, a little leafy and green in the nose, but clean in the taste, very low bitterness very high juice factor in taste, mostly or entirely dry hopped i would think, or at least after flame out, hence the name. seems like a simple malt base, pale two row and a pils type, little if anything else, light and dry body, a little bit of crackery cereal character to it, no toast or sweet or crystal or heft at all, it drinks dry and fluffy and delicate, especially with all the carbonation they have incorporated into it. the hop profile makes my mouth water, limes and lemongrass and fresh pineapple, its amazingly fresh and really well dosed, not forced, no bite or oversaturation at all, and just really good. i liked this way better than the double ipa i had from them on the same trip. a rockstar of a pale ale and an absolute crusher!

Hazy yellow, nice white head, good retention and lace
Smells like they used the cool guy hops
Light and hoppy, more of a session IPA than Pale Ale
Full-bodied but still watery, if that makes since
I'm over the whole NE-whatever trend

Pint can served in.... some weird starbucks glass. Hazy and yellow. Mild, green / fresh hop aroma. Cold, crisp, and extremely refreshing on this hot night of summer thunderstorms in Boston. Carbonation is relatively strong, but it works well here. Flavor is mild too, of course, but with a distinct citrus peel hop flavor and very restrained bitterness. Where does session IPA end and APA begin? For a pale ale this is all hops and no malt, but it's also all session and no bite.

Canned 5/22. Tried 16OZ Can to 18OZ IPA glass on 7/22.
Quite light colour, taste and hops. Have a some sourness.
Clean and crisp. Personally, prefer more hop front IPA (such as One Hop this time:Mosaic etc.)
Smooth, then good as lunch drink ??
