Liked it more than I thought I would. Citrusy hops, bready malts. A great APA to start with. Closely resembles an IPA without too much bite. Very drinkable. Will be searching for this one in the coming months.

1/24....pours yellowish bronze, ring of white foam. Lemon rind, grassy meadow nose. Soft lemons, citrus malt flavor. Tight hop. Real tight. Peppery (black pepper). Very fresh, lots of rind in there.

A good citrusy smell with a balanced piney/citrus taste. The color is a light gold toward the bottom, leading to a darker gold and a small head. Good, but not overpowering, carbonation. Perfect on a warm day.

Bottle. I found this quite underwhelming. I can see how it could be refreshing on a warm summer's day, but it doesn't compare to some of the other session IPAs (Founders, Green Flash). It is citrusy, but in some respects tastes more like a lemonade radler than a citra-hopped session IPA.

I really like this beer! It is moderately bitter, with terrific piney and citrusy tastes. I believe its taste is strongly influenced by Mosaic hops, which is a favorite of mine.
