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.

Pours a light yellow with a white head that doesn't trail the glass. The smell was full of hops with bright citrus scents coming through with some malt on the finish. The taste is exactly what I love about session IPA's, with no alcohol burn and bright citrus and pine with an exceptionally clean finish. If you're a fan of the style I would highly recommend.

Pours a hazy and cloudy copper color with good head and decent lacing. Smell is really nice - dank and resinous, malts, piney.

The taste and feel is where this brew falls apart for me - bitter black tea up front and not balanced enough with the malt - dry bitter finish.

Yellow with a sticky white head.

Familiar kitchen spice aroma I can’t place. Szechuan pepper? That, grass and grapefruit.

Tongue grabbing Szechaun pepper grass hops. Tart grapefruit pith. Dry, cracker malt.

While I like it a lot Bouncy House could never take that special place in my heart reserved for Finest Kind.
