12oz bottle into a tulip glass. Clear copper with a rich bright-white head. Robust sticky lace drenches the sides of the glass. Smells grassy and bitter with herbal notes and touch of pine and sweet tropical fruit that stick to the breadiness of the malt. The taste is grassy herbal character with a rind-like bitterness and some light resins. Herbal character gets more tea-like as this warms. A well balancing sweetness on the edges comes courtesy of the malt and the additional fruit notes of the hops. The mouthfeel has a medium bodied firm creaminess to it that flows rather easily across the palate. This was nice, with an easy drinking nature yet still packed in some full hoppy flavors. Quite quenching and sessionable overall.

12 oz. Bottle poured into a pint glass.

Light amber color. Pours out with a rich thick head that that lasts several minutes, but interestly leaves little lacing. Relatively low in alcohol. Nothing remarkable other than its lightness, making it enjoyably refreshing.

3.06/5  rDev -20.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

12oz. bottle poured into a glass.

Appearance: Pours a rusty, clear orange. Head and lacing both minimal. Carbonation moderate.

Aroma: Smells of citrus, pine, lemon, hops and grass. All typical IPA smells. Smells hoppier than 42 IBUs. Alcohol is faint.

Taste: The taste follows the nose, but it's kind of underwhelming. The lemon note is a little too dominant. It's very average.

Mouthfeel: It's thinner than I'd prefer. Somewhat watery for an IPA.

Overall: This is a very mediocre beer in my opinion. It does what they want it to do - it's an IPA you can plow through all day because of low ABV - but it's really boring. It seems like a stab at a pale ale / IPA hybrid and I think it would be better if they'd committed to one or another. It could serve as a good "bridge" beer to help folks move from pales to IPAs, so it's not without value.

DRINKABLE. A great summer beer. Lower alcohol and a crisp refreshing feel make for an IPA that can be grabbed one after another from a cooler. Pine, fruit hops, and just a touch of a bitter aftertaste remind you that you are drinking an IPA. Get this for your summer BBQ. Everyone should be happy.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured out of a can. Color is a nice see through copper/orange. Pretty decent head on this pour not too foamy.

Smell is good, fruity with some hop aroma. Taste is also good, not outstanding but a nice balance with some definite citrus flavors. Overall, this beer is pretty good and I'll give it a try again.
