12 oz can into IPA glass.
Look is cloudy golden yellow. Smell is tropical fruit/orange/papaya. Taste follows nose very nice citrus top and smooth ending. Feel is nice easy drink. This is a very good APA. Well balanced and a really good drink.

Sharply hopped, light golden ale. Not much nuance here, just a bitter bite and then gone. Not sure how this beer received an Exceptional rating. It's rather one-note and unexceptional, in fact..

Great APA. Perfect baseball, bbq, summertime hot dog and pizza beer.

I tried this at Mews Tavern in Rhode Island. It poured a clear orangish with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had hop hints that included some citrus flare. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with some fruit notes present. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

Can poured into stemless wine glass. Hazy yellow straw with thick foamy head, just off-white, settles slowly into thin cap.

Citrus, grassy hops and a bit of grapefruit pith in the aroma.

Flavor is floral, citrus and light fruit. Some grassy and earthy hops but overall smooth and not aggressive. Light bitterness balances the hint of sweetness.

Moderate carbonation and lighter than medium body. Clean and refreshing.

A nice easy going brew, nothing really wrong with it. I could sip on a few in a row and be content. I think I would like in the summer as a beach beer.
