3.49/5  rDev -9.4%

poured 12oz bottle into pint glass

A - Pours a light sun color with a slight hue of lime. Nice 2 finger white bubbly head and lacing galore.

S - Light citrus and floral hops, not really any malt or sweet smell.

T - Not too exciting as it is just some floral, citrus hop juice and no real malt to speak of.

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation. A lot like the "fizzy yellow beer" feel

O - As an IPA it is weak since there really is no malt to speak of. As a session ale it is pretty good as a light, refreshing drink on a hot day. Not much separates this from Lagunitas Daytime or Central Waters Hop Rise.

appearance; appearance is a very clear copper, with almost no evident carbonation within the beer itself, pours a medium amount of white foam that settles into a ring of thin, white, lacing.

smell; smell is pleasant but quite faint. grapefruit with a sweet, malt kicker.

taste; similar to smell; there is grapefruit in there, with syrupy malt in the background.

mouthfeel; light body, light carbonation, on the thin side.

overall; not terrible, particularly for a hot day, but i would not buy it again, a bit to unimpressive.

Appearance: Clear dark gold. Head is bright-white and creamy. Drops to a small collar with a wispy cap and lace. Pretty standard affair.

Smell: Mellow fusion of citrus and floral hops aromas. Lightly caramelized malts with some underlying caramel malt sweetness. A bit bready. Some hints of tropical aromas, tangerine and such. Some bitter pine needle sneaks through the back. Some toasted notes. Nicely complex, but mellow.

Taste: Slightly pithy. Some pine needle and flower petals coupled with something almost earthy on the finish. Malts are lightly sweet with some bready backing notes. Slight lingering bitterness. Clean almost pale maltiness. Slightly toasted.

Mouthfeel: Nice and smooth with a light to moderate carbonation. Body is on the lighter side of medium.

Overall: Hey guess how long I can drink this...

Exactly what it claims to be. An easy drinking low ABV IPA that doesn't fall in to APA territory. Hello fallback sixer.
