3.71/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

a: extremely pale yellow color, almost a grainy color with a 1 finger frothy soapy white head. looks similar to a pilsner

s: pineapple, garlicy simcoe, fresh dough, lemongrass, and some light caramel

t: very light flavor. garlic/onion hops, grapefruit, a hint of pineapple. these are followed up by a nice biscuty/flatbread flavor, and a nice caramel strawberry sweetness. very light tasting

m: light mouthfeel, but a large amount of carbonation that really fills out on the tongue

o: for a lower ABV it delivers a taste you would expect from a quality brewer. slightly hoppy, light sweetness, and a nice bready malt presence. its a tad too carbonated to be the extremely sessionable for me, but definitely a good beer to drink a few of if your looking to refresh

Can from Whole Foods.

A crystal clear light yellow with a dense, white head with nice retention and lacing, this looks solid. The nose is great. Bright citrus with some pine, this is what you'd expect for the style. The citrus is a clean, mildly lemony and moderately orange peel like blend of hop aromas, and the pine is, well, pine-like. Crisp and cracker-like, malt character is minimal here. The palate opens with a blend of hop flavors, delicate but forward with the aforementioned blend, the mildly lemony like hop bitterness edging out the more orange-like flavors. Crisp and clean on the palate, this beer is light in body, crisply carbonated, and drying and mildly bitter with a wonderful, long-lasting fruitiness on the finish. Excellent stuff.

Sampled on tap at PP Carsbad. Very clear light straw in color with minimal head. Subtle grass and floral nose. Bitter hop flavor through out with pine and a bit of sweet citrus backing. Clean but uneventful finish. Solid for a session able IPA but struggling to make my top 5 sessionable IPAs.

Poured light straw color with a highly effervescent head that retreats extremely fast. Very translucent. The smell is mostly hops, in the form of citrus, and a little cat piss. The taste is a mix of resin and citrus hops. No malts or yeast. The feel is the best aspect: crisp, clean, ans duper light body.

This is an excellent session IPA. Very similar taste to Alpha King but much different in other areas.

As perfect a session IPA as you're likely to find. And for $10 for six pints, you really can't beat the price

Good session IPA . It brings the typical taste. Little malt flavor, and big bitterness.
