Surprised...in a good way!

Looks like an orange colored American IPA. Pleasant pale ale smell, with expected citrus and piney goodness. Great bitter flavor. Slick yet bitey mouthfeel. Is it the best IPA out there...no. But 4.7%?!?!? Given the diminutive caloric hit, and a smaller liver jab than a pair of Tylenol, this beer is awesome!!! My new default IPA in the fridge. Did I say awesome?

Lovely clear golden amber. Nice head and goodly lacing.
Smell is dank and earthy. Lots of hops of the English earth. Some light citrus. Bready malt. Taste is perfect. Dry hoppy ale that is crisp while having a satisfying punch. Support dry finish with lots of hop oil lingering. Feel is as I said crisp with nice mildly effervescent carbonation. A perfect American expression of a mild ale.

Pours a straw color, just a hint of haze, with a pretty weak head, but not a bad looking beer at all. Smell is a little yeasty, but mostly citus zest hops (mostly grapefruit). The smell's not in your face, but it's solid and awesome; way more than you'd expect from a "light" beer like this. Taste is a bit of malt, a bit of yeast and a nice citrusy hop flavor. If you're used to drinking big DIPA's, this is going to taste weak at first, but the right tastes are there and the hops are really enjoyable (probably one of the strongest grapefruit flavors I've had in a beer). Mouthfeel was a bit thin, but what do you expect given the %alcohol?
I think this beer should be evaluated in a different catergory from other IPA's. It's not meant to compete with them. The abv is 4.7% for Pete's sake! As a "fishing trip on the lake-session ale with some hop flavor, this is a world-class beer! I don't think I've ever had a tastier beer of similar abv.
