Hazy yellow color, foamy white head. Aromas of grass and pine. Grassy flavor too with a note of lemon towards the finish. Easy drinking and refreshing.

Hazy, lemon yellow pour. Very light, floral, honeydew melon nose. Very mellow. Surprisingly hoppy, melon, cucumber, and a soft bitter finish. Ultimately crushable and refreshing. Good summer, lawnmower beer.

12 0z. bottle from mix 12pack- bottled on 4/10/19. Poured into ipa glass
looks - pale straw gold, light haze, full white head
smell - bright fresh vegetal herb floral
taste - follows nose through the happy garden rows, well named. Almost like an IPL or funky pils
Feel is light brite making things all- right.
Overall, very much what was expected by the label, a light fun summer ale for all to enjoy! Easy to crush.
What I'd describe as a very good light ale that's got a lot going on this season!

Poured from a freshness dated 12 oz. can: slightly hazy, yellow-gold hue with a dense and rocky white head.

Quite an explosion of almost abrasive, bittersweet tropical fruit.

Now this one is extremely fresh with a solid entry of pineapple and marmalade followed by hints of lemon - very tropical hop profile with a nice malty background. Overall, very refreshing and quaffable at only 5.6 percent ABV.

Very nice creamy and soft mouthfeel is followed by faint, lingering bitterness on the palate.

An excellent example of a "hazy" IPA with moderate ABV and quite refreshing character for a hot, late May day in Florida.

12 oz can with a BB date stamp of April 2019 in May 2019.
Pours with a hazy golden body and a tall, durable white head.
Fruity with moderate strength and bitterness for style.

This is a damn fine IPA.
Pours a hazy yellow color with a nice head. The to be expected hop/pine aroma that follows to the taste. This has a surprisingly light mouth feel and a smooth aftertaste with just a hint of hop bitterness. Overall a very good IPA, not quite a Jade, but I like it. Ranks a 9 out of 10 on the would you like to sit down with a 12 pack of this brew scale
