A: Lightly hazy and pale golden color. Average white head with small bubbles.
S: Sweet tropical citrus (kiwi, mangos, grapefruit mostly) smells great. Really appealing smell.
T: Sweet tropical taste alot of kiwi. The malt back bone plays the biggest role however with some toasted bread notes. The breadiness has a light chalkiness to it. The back end falls a bit flat and dry.
M: Medium bodied. Dry crispness to it, not alot of residual sugar.Really like the mouth feel.
O: looks great, smells great, tastes great, and good body. Not too many flaws in this beer. I could drink a lot of them and enjoy doing it. Maybe tone down the lingering bitterness just a notch to really be able to drink these all night but an overall above quality beer at a great price. This quenches my thirst for a great IPA without being high in alcohol. Wish i bought more of these. Six packs in the summer i hope.

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.
Full on sticky frothing, mildly dull golden hue. Citrus pith and wild flowers with some biscuity malt make for a very aromatic nose. Snappy crispness in a fluffy body. Assertive hoppiness start to finish, bitterness is pretty sharp but lets the malt make camp. Underlying breadiness. Lots of citrus rind with a yeasty earthiness.
Super hoppy session beer, fun to knock back if you are into intensely hoppy beers.

Had a pint at Cannibal in Kips Bay. Love me a lower ABV pale. I'd believe you if you said it's a session IPA, but it's not quite burying with hops like Stone Go To or Founders All-Day, however. The aroma is a bit subdued, it's lacking a big pop of hops, but does have a pleasant mix of bready malt and citrus. The flavor picks up the hops with a cutting grapefruit bitterness and light grassy and pine notes. It's a simpler profile, but clean and tasty. The body is also on the lighter side for the style, in the neighborhood of a great session beer.
