A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has some hues of amber along with a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high fluffy bright white head that died down, leaving a film of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—oranges stand out in particular—along with some hints of pine resin. Notes of melons also become noticeable once the beer warms up.
T: The flavors in the taste follow the aromas in the smell, except that the citrus and pine resin hops are slightly more pronounced and also lend a touch of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer had a very light and airy mouthfeel; it was almost like drinking a "lite" IPA if there was such a style. For this reason, the beer is very easy to drink and is extremely sessionable.

can. spiegelau ipa glass.

(3.40) A: Carrot orange coloring with a translucent clarity. Solid one inch capping, slowly dissolves with a lasting coverage and broken ring lace band. Carbonation is light, lazy and spacious.

(3.45) S: Tons of fresh pine, toasted orange peel, with lightly dry grapefruit. medium intensity range.

(3.65) T: Flavor was wet orange-citrus, lightly toasted malt, with lightly dry grapefruit. Sparkling flavor, cirsp citrusy bite with a moderate level of hopping. Finishes lightly dry of pine.

(3.60) M: Light-medium body, lightly sticky resinous hop oils.

(3.65) O: Overall, well hopped session ipa, and at 4% shows a modest amount of hopping, respectable even at a few points higher abv%. Six pack, session worthy, easy can transportation, and another fine example of small abv /high ibu beers.

A - Clear gold body, thick white head fades quickly and leaves heavy lacing.
S - Vegetal hops, herbal, earthy. slight malt sweetness, maybe?
T - Resiny pine bitterness that I didn't get from the nose. Not much of the malt. Doesn't taste like a session ale, which is a compliment.
M - Thick (for the style) medium carb. Coats the palate. Drying.
O-One of the more fuller and robust session ales that I've had. I'm a big fan of the Red Betty series. It's just a little tough to get super fresh cans. This one was two months old.
