Very good session IPA. RIYL Founders All Day or Two Brothers Sidekick. Perfect for the block party when you have a bouncy house...

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a lightly cloudy burnt yellow color with a small white head that falls to ring.

Aroma is nice citrus /floral notes leaning towards lemon grass some what. Nice inviting smell riding on lightly bready malt base.

Taste is nice big hop flavors tropical fruits, lemon grass notes or maybe leaning little toward lime at least in the finish. Light crisp sessionable brew, must say for me the best of these new light ABV IPA's that I have tried.

Mouthfeel is light crisp easy drinking brew. Goes down smooth and favorable.

Overall very nice for this style. Not sure if these would be sessionable for me as they go down twice as fast as a higher ABV IPA, so might be getting more alcohol in the system this way. I believe this is my new go to lawnmower beer.

I don't usually buy the smutty short batch series due to price (except for durty because its incredible) but this guy surprised me for 2.99. Poured into a pint glass and Here we go.

A: half inch or so of head faded down to a nice thick line floating on the beer. Looks like it will leave some lacing as this gets drank. Very golden color. Looks like a macro beer which appearance quality wise is damn good. Very clear, very golden and a lotta microbubbles constantly rising.

S: smells great. Bright tropical notes hit the nose, mango, kiwi, as the shit beer geeks video says, "can really smell the citra in this." followed by some breadiness. Cant wait to try it.

T: some malt forward followed by great tropical fruits. Second sip starts a wave a bitterness in the end that feels like it will be here to stay throughout the beer. A bready sweet finish mixes with the bitterness to almost balance it out. Some different tropical fruit in this. Maybe some melon and honeydew. Something thats a sweeter citrus than grapefruit.

M: medium bodied. Coats the mouth nice and the carbonation feels just right for the style. A slightly dry finish. Doesn't have the watery feel i've gotten in other "session" ipas like all day.

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.
