3.79/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a honey yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. OK lacing.

S: A decent, if somewhat underwhelming aroma of hops, citrus, malt, and a light tropical fruit element.

T: Tasted of some light citrus elements (grapefruit, in particular), some light malt notes, a moderate amount of hops, and a little bit of tropical fruit (not much). Like the aroma, the flavor isn't bad, but at times seems a little underpowered. Interesting, but not as much as it should be.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a slick finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: This is a fairly solid beer, but it doesn't quite succeed. Worth a look, though.

Trying the Factory Girl at the brewery. It poured a clear yellow with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is faint bitter citrus. The taste is bitter leaning with citrus tones present. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a good sessionable ipa...maybe a tad bitter.

Poured from a bottle into an IPA glass. Intetesting color. Sort of a murky light yellow. The smell was ok but was not to my liking. Both my wife and I thought it had sort of a skunky smell. For a session IPA, the taste was fine but I have had much better session IPAs. Overall, I would not discourage anyone from buying this beer but it probably will not be a go to session beer for me.

Nice little IPA, citrus aroma and a light citrus flavor to go with it, maybe a little grapefruit. Easy drinker for sure and more mild than a number of other IPAs. Good intro into the IPA world and one that is nice for an established IPA drinker to cut down on the hops. Would certainly buy this again when they release six packs again.

Great golden-orange color with decent head and spotty lacing. Aromas of grapefruit and fresh squeezed orange. Tastes are similar with fresh orange, grapefruit and grapefruit rind and a hop bitterness that balances all so well together to make a great session IPA...Cheers !!

A: Pale yellow in color, hazy, with a tall white head topped with fish eyes.

S: Light pineapple aroma, and a nice grapefruit smell. Yum.

T: Some decent bitterness, with grapefruit up front, and tropical fruitiness in the finish with a lingering bitterness.

M: Medium in body, with a little lower carbonation than I would have figured.

O: Overall pretty enjoyable.

Poured a pale gold body with minor head and little lace. Aroma is of an airy, light citric hop variety with touches of floral notes as well. Meets the standard of session IPA b/c body is light, smooth, crisp and easy to drink. The hops are bitter citric flavored but nothing overpowering or taste bud nuking and there is a little bit of cracker like dryness to the finish. Not a bad IPA at all and worth trying.

Pours golden and transparent, with light haze and a 2 finger whitish head leaving light lacing.

Sweet floral hops are through the roof! Citric hops represented by over ripe but sweet oranges and grapefruit. A hint of grass and grapefruit rind as well. This is one hoppy IPA! I couldn't get enough of the aroma! Almost like sniffing a bouquet... a manly bouquet!

Fairly dry to taste with just a hint of sweet malt before the tart citrus takes over. Bittering hops are the backbone throughout. Vapors evoking the floral and grassy hops rise in the back of the mouth before being outdone by the rising bitterness of the finish.

Feel is medium+ . Fairly crisp and peppery. The oily hops both burn and then leave a pleasant sticky coating throughout the mouth.

Another one out of the park for Parkway. Immensely drinkable, and a fantastic summer brew. Redolent of hops, full of flavor and aromatics, and well balanced. A go to beer.
