A - Poured Vigoursly into a plain pint glass, awesome carbonation, tons of bubbles rising from the sides and bottom. Has a gorgeous golden blonde color, pretty clear, no sediment floating around. Leaves a nice inch and a half white head with some decent size bubbles. I love the label on this beer, it pretty much it explains the beer to a T. Old station wagon headed to the beach. a 4.7% ipa that tastes like its from Cali.
S - Has a strong west coast aroma, lots of citrus, pine, and floral hop characters with little to no malt aroma at all.
T - No way is this under 5% abv. The hop profile strongly resembles Double Trouble, only thing missing is the strong alcohol taste that double trouble leaves behind. This is much cleaner, and has no alcohol taste. It leaves a refreshing crisp taste. A lot of reviews I've read about this on here mentions a metallic taste but I didn't notice any from the bottle.
M - Wonderful! Very crisp, clean carbonation that is extremely refreshing. If there's a beer out there that makes your mouth water, its this. Obviously since it's only 4.7% there is no warm alcohol feel. A very light viscosity adds to the overall drinkablity of this beer.
O - The name of this beer describes it perfectly. This is exactly what i'm looking for in a session beer. Lots of flavor refreshing mouthfeel and low abv. I could drink a whole six of this while playing a round of golf or fishing with no problem. For your next poker night be sure to grab a six pack of this.
