look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Adequate finger high head of loose off-white bubbles, not quite foam per se, clears off swiftly to a ring around the edges, the lacing is super-thin but does form decently wide streaks before evaporating. Yellow gold colored liquid with a soft orange cast, only a few fat bubbles visible, scattered about, looks “basic” and unassuming. Piney nose with raw grains, grass, yeast and grapefruit rinds, more floral than fruity, more wheat as it warms, overall has a fresh, taut character, good balance and no burn. Medium-bodied, tight and slightly overly aggressive carbonation, keeps it scrubbing into the tongue which favors bitterness over sweetness. Pepper and herbaceous green grass, grains, pine, black tea leaf, the blood orange and grapefruit pith drying. Thin dusting of cocoa and allusion to anise, malts not contributing much to the final equation. Seems to pull back on just about every ingredient, wants a close race among them all, as a result more calculatedly balanced than integrated. You lose interest after the second bottle.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A stunning amount of flavour for the 4% ABV listed on the chalk board at the pub attached to the brewery.

Bright golden colour with limited head and no lacing. Not a tremendous amount of body, but enough for mouthfeel to remain pleasant. An awesome "west coast" hop aroma with brilliant citrus notes. The flavour is heavily grapefruit oriented and truly delicious. A lingering bitter aftertaste completes this very tasty beer.

Definitely a stellar "session" ale!

A - Pours crystal clear amber with a frothy white head. Sheets of lacing cling to the glass.

S - Citrus fills the nostrils, grapefruit, orange, and lemon, bright fruit, pineapple, white bread yeast with a biscuity pale malt underneath.

T - Follows the nose with bright grapefruit, tangerine, lemon and orange. Nice hop flavor with ample bitterness. Tangerines show up and the pale malts support the zesty citrus with some grassy and slightly spicy hops coming in as it warms. Finishes crisp and clean with a pithy grapefruit bitterness.

M - Light to medium body, solid carbonation, crisp and clean finish.

A great session IPA, especially for the ABV. Grapefruit dominates with a light pale malt base. It's crisp and clean and you could drink this all day... get it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a golden color with a slight orange tint. A small head of white foam with medium retention and lacing.
A nice, mild citrus and floral hop aroma. Slightly piney.
The taste is more mild than the aroma. Very little malt presence and a good dose of citrus hops.
Very light body, as is expected from the name and the low ABV. The beer goes down smoothly and I feel ready to have another beer as soon as I'm done.

Overall it is a solid pale ale, but my main problem is that it's not an IPA! As I am rating to style and this just doesn't meet the expectation I have when something is listed as an American IPA, I can't give this any better of a rating. My other problem with this is the price. It costs just as much as Centennial IPA, Founders Porter, and Dirty Bastard. At this price I don't see why I would ever buy this again when other good pale ales are being sold for cheaper.
