POUR: On draft into nonic pint. APPEARANCE: Clear golden amber in color. Distinct white head with moderate glass lacing. Upon swirl, head builds nicely, then settles to a nice and even white film. Still brew with minimal effervescence. AROMA: Light hoppy and floral aroma. Somewhat delicate. Grassy with slight hints of citrus. The floral and grassy hop dominate the nose. TASTE: Light and delicate. Follows the nose. Floral, herbal, and grassy. AFTERTASTE: Somewhat of a dry and crackery finish. Floral elements recede and reveal more of the malt. Somewhat bitter on the backend but nothing too serious. NOTES: Well crated and a good looker. Taste doesn't disappoint with a delicate offering of flowery hops upfront and a crackery malt backbone. RATING/REVIEW: Very good/ 4 out of 5.

Poured into a tall clear glass. Has a hazy pale golden color, heavy carbonation, and a very thick foamy tan head.

Smells heavily of resin, pine, and other fruity notes. Kiwi, grapefruit, tangerine, faint lemon peel, pineapple juice, floral hops, cracker malt, and peaches.

Upfront, grassy hops, juicy citrus, and cracker malt. Lime, pineapple, peaches, orange, melon, kiwi, mango, tangerine, and pine. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Altogether very floral and fruity.

Feels very smooth in the mouth.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy pale golden yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and faint pale bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy foamy light beige head that reduces to a medium to large sized patch of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of stone fruit/peach, floral, citrus/grapefruit pith, citrus/lime zest, and grassy hops over the top of light aromas of bready + grainy malts with a hint of grainy sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of bready + grainy malts with a hint of grainy sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of stone fruit/peach, floral, citrus/grapefruit pith, citrus/lime zest, and grassy hops which impart a moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp initially.

O: Drinks pretty easily with well hidden alcohol and lighter than average IPA mouthfeel. Enjoyable with a pleasant albeit more old school hop profile.

Had a pint of this at a pub in Louisville. Pours light copper yellow with light lacing that fades quickly. Nose is very light grassy aroma. Taste is nice combination of light crackery malt and trooocal ripe fruit and grassy hops. This is a nice drinkable IPA. Nothing special, but good.

12 oz can poured into pint glass canned on 3/15.

A: bright gold yellow body with good clarity a little hazy from the cold. Head was a tiny bubbled white thing that settles fairly fast.

S: Lots of sweet resin, and some grapefruit, and a little tangerine.

T: bright resin intermingles with some pineapple and tangerine. Nice clean light crackery malts on the end.

M: good carbonation medium bodied great clean finish almost a little dry.

O: This beer is way too easy to drink I could see me going to the end of a six pack of this in one session. It’s clean medium bodied packed with flavor but not too much that you need a break.

Light mouthfeel, with a very nice floral hop aroma, and a distinctly lemony hop note. Nice and refreshing, would make a nice summer session ale if not for the 6.9% ABV.

Pours golden. The head is lightly golden as well. Nose is heavy with citrus. The taste is citrus and bitter goodness. After taste carries in fir quite a while. Good solid ipa.
