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

Poured from"stubby" 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed golden orange in color, with a short head of white foam.
Aroma-Nice boquet of juicy, piney hops.
Taste-Initial gulp is a bit weak-kneed, then a nice rush of hops and fruity pine come in for a nice flavorfull finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but this is a "sessionable" IPA and would be welcome in the hotter months or at a backyard BBQ. Nice flavor and very refreshing.

A: A pale yellow body with a one finger white laced head that disappeared quickly.

S: Extremely muted. There is a subtle bready caramel aroma with a tinge of hop that resembles pine.

T: There is a bitterness in the beginning. Very subtle pine and citrus followed by very subtle caramel.

M: Medium body with sharp carbonation.

O: Not a good IPA. This would not even make a good pale ale. Little flavor and more common IPAs are better and cheaper.

Clear light amber with a two finger white head with decent retention and spotty lacing. The aroma has grapefruit, pine, and pineapple.

Has a nice combination of bitterness and sweetness, with bitterness being a little more dominant. I can taste grapefruit, pine, pineapple, and a little bit of bread malt. There is a lot of flavor for a 4.70 % abv beer.

Medium bodied with average carbonation, and it finishes dry. This is a really nice IPA. I am very impressed by how much flavor there is in this low abv beer. Well done.

S: Medium bright citrus, fresh grapefruit peel, heavy kumquat, slight grassiness

L: Light orange, slightly hazy, white head that dissipates. Ok lacing.

T: Bright citrus up front with some hoppy resins. Very clean, light malt. Medium bitterness with just a touch of sweetness. Finishes fairly dry with residual hop resin. Some soft grassiness as it warms, in a good way.

M: Light bodied, medium carbonation. Fairly crisp overall.

Very light, hoppy IPA with just enough malt to keep it in balance. Really enjoyed this, although i prefer a pale ale over this "light" IPA style.

Pours a nice copper color with a small head and bit of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, some malt sweetness and fruity. taste of citrus, with a mic of malt sweetness and fruit. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, crisp and refreshing. Nice balance. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy. Good for a few.

12 oz. bottle, with the remnants of what was probably once a bottled on date smeared on the side, but no longer readable. I'm confident that I got a fresh six pack though, so we'll see. Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Aggressive pour manages to conjure just over 1 finger of thin fizzy white head which disappears into a froth within seconds. Body color is a light murky yellow-orange color. No lacing.

S - The smell is decent: fresh pine needles, grapefruits, and oranges with some dusty bready malt lurking in the background. Definite noticeable cat piss acidity, like others have noted.

T - This is one of those beers that smells a lot better than it is. Basically none of those bitter sweet fruity flavors you expect in an IPA. Hop bitterness is present, but strange. Tastes a little bit mineral-y and earthy, but that's quite fine by me.

M - Body is thin and watery, and finishes dry on the palate. Carbonation is moderate & decent enough.

Overall, I can definitely see the market for a lighter IPA such as this one, but it's nothing special to me. However, it is light and exceptionally drinkable. Excellent bottle art, depicting probably a great scenario for drinking this beer: in the middle of a lake in a canoe. A session ale if there ever was one, but I would rather get a more intense IPA than compromise for a lighter one. Either way, I look forward to trying this from a can!
