A: Golden copper with some cloudiness, 2 fingers of off white head and some pinhead chunks of lacing. Very little carbonation.
S: Pine, floral, citrus, orange, red chilies, onion, black pepper.
T: Citrus, orange, orange peel, white grapefruit, pine needles, candied orange in the aftertaste though its not a sweet beer. There is a light amount of sweetness, and a good amount of white grapefruit bitterness that lingers on the palate.
M: Medium body, medium low carbonation. Quite dry.
O: I get it, they are going for a lower alcohol beer, but 4.7% is considered too high to be in the alcohol free category, so its considered an American IPA. Its got all the flavor of an ipa, but in this category where its not the best beer, but still solid. So it feels like a compromise in my opinion, and I would consider it a regular beer as far as alcohol. Nice to have the excuse of having it in the day though, so I’ll buy that.

Good Job !!!A very nice session ale that pours a nice head that slowly disappears over time. Smell bites a little with fruit, possibly grapefruit or orange??. Hop flavor is nice but yearned afor a little more after smelling it. Nice brew, done well, and definitely worthy of drinking plenty more of these, especially as the weather warms!!
