One of my top 3 beers this summer. Excellent price for this one. Craft brews can get expensive, but if you find this one, it's one of the best 12 oz. bottles for under $2.

After reading the reviews this popped right into my wants. Then on a lowly day when beer shopping my phone died, unable to turn to BA for advice. With no particular wants in mind I picked this up, read the description on the side and knew I had to try it. This ended up as a want twice and for good reason. Smells and tastes primarily of citrus, mostly grabbing grapefruit and apple, surprisingly brings a brisk spice aspect once the pine comes forward. Aftertaste is dry and suitable to taste. Mouthfeel is crisp with biting carbonation. So easy and pleasurable to drink, my new personal go-to.

Very tasty, very hoppy but with a great malt balance. Reminds me a lot of Hop Stoopid, but Hop Stoopid still slightly eeks this one out. Unfortunately this is not one that is easy to get in my area, but if it was I would be all over it.

Would Drink Again: Yes
Would Purchase Again: Yes
