Poured a cloudy, yellow body with minimal head and minimal lace. Pulpy, acidic orange aroma. Light, crisp, acidic with mild orange/pineapple-like sweetness on finish and is a slow sipper.

I got a can of this off the single shelf at a Kroger just down the road from south metro ice in Dayton,OH. It poured a hazy yellow with no head and no lace. The scent had bitter citrus peel notes. The taste was bitter leaning with grapefruit being the base. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

DATE: December 15, 2018... OCCASION: Browns/Broncos Saturday night--much to avenge here! GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... pours from a 12 oz. can a sediment-laden, bubbly, dense, wan yellow body that sits beneath a thin, hazy, uneven white head... intense grapefruit, lemon, mango and tropical fruits dominate the aroma... buttered bread, honey, and light spiciness are secondary and alluring.... first sip is agreeable, textured and medium-bodied despite its ABV... lively, bubbly, and invigorating as a pale ale might... a hop-forward ale, bright at the teeth with rattling grapefruit, lemon, mango, crisp biscuit, and light pepper... the citra really delivers the tropical fruit--this is one that is mighty fine, though similarly solid sessions are easier on the wallet...

This is one of the best sessions out there. Might actually be the best.

More balanced than Boom Sauce. The can says something like "Zesty and Refreshing" and that about sums it up. A great summertime sipping IPA.

Had on draft at the Brass Tap in Columbus, Ohio. 3rd different beer of the night so take it for what it's worth.

Nice hazy appearance and lacing that lasts. Citrusy hoppy nose. Taste follows the nose with a nice hoppiness. Creamy mouthfeel with light carbonation; oats no doubt play into the mouthfeel.

I typically am not a fan of session IPAs; they seem out of balance to me. This is not the case here. Nicely balanced, very flavorful, no alcohol presence. Happy to find this brew in Ohio and would definitely seek out again.

Overall I thought this was good but the can was a bit older. I feel like whenever I find this in NY/NJ in cans it is already 6-8 weeks old and fresher it could be great.

Nice beer. Pours a cloudy gold. Big citrus up front. Not very hoppy. Feel is good with medium fizz. Give it a try.
