Hazy gold with two fingers of white head. Good amount of lace. Smell is Mango some citrus. Taste is mango light bread some fruity hops. Good lightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel thin with just enough carbonation. Overall an awesome beer for such a low abv.
Best sessionable IPA I've had to date.

Pours with a slightly cloudy golden hue. Nose of citrus and pineapple. Light, delicate body of pale malt and a slightly silky character from wheat, maybe? Dank, delicious hop profile of pineapple and grapefruit provides tons of character and a lingering bitterness on the finish.

Pours a light to medium golden amber with a surprisingly coarse one finger head that dissipated quickly to a finer thick white cap that had good retention and nice lacing. Nice aroma of citrus and tropical fruit, biscuit malt, lightly dank citrus hops with an odd overripe papaya component that was supported well enough to add interest. Flavor is light biscuit malt, overripe tropical and citrus fruit, citrus hops with mild notes of pine and herb. Light to medium bodied. A nice hopped session IPA on the lower malt end of the spectrum for this style, that was pleasant to drink, but made me wish for a little bit more of everything. I'm a fence sitting skeptic of this style and this one makes me wonder about the style. The flavors are all here, why not just boost it up a bit for a great flavor. I honestly think we need a session IPA style; I would have scored this higher that category, but would take almost any standard strength IPA of this. (I'm not a knee jerk hater, I just rated Crux's session IPA quite highly, it may be a matter of taste for the lighter malt varieties like this). I will absolutely be back for another fine Fort George ale, but not to this one.

16 oz can bought from "Lifesource" in Salem. $2.49 Pours an attractive hazy light golden with a goodish sized thick and creamy white head. Very strong and fresh hop aromas..resin,mango,papaya and lemon zest..very appetizing. Taste is very similar to the aroma..little more resin in the end..but very good. Nice well carbonated mouthfeel with a looong lasting hoppy bitter aftertaste. Excellent Session IPA..summer is looking great!

16oz : tulip

Lightly hazy, golden yellow with a foamy white head.

Big fruity hops, peach, citrus, tropical blend. Light bready backbone in both the aroma and taste.

Medium body, standard, fizzy-foamy carbonation.

A very well done low ABV "session" IPA. Fort George has really been doing some great things lately and this is another.

Aroma is a huge gush of honeysuckle fragrance. Handsome golden sudsy brew in the tall goblet. While this is certainly crisp, the acidity is just average, which is a good thing for a light brew. It just doesn't feel so thin in the mouth.

Wonderful fragrant flavors with lots of mango. In spite of the light weight there is a distinct malty sweet tang, just enough to add some definition to the pervasive hops. The aftertaste is certainly bitter with a grapefruit zing, but it actually ends with a little of the malt still sweet on the lips.

This is one of my favorite IPAs now, and at the low end of the alcohol spectrum it's the best by far. It just takes more aromatics and a moderate bitterness, which probably not as easy as it sounds. Another excellent brew from one of my favorite Northwest breweries. From the 16 oz can purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

Served from a growler into a pint glass.

A-Poured a bright hazy golden color with big fluffy bright white head that left lots of splashy lace.

S- Huge peach, some pineapple, and tropical fruit notes.

T- Lots of peach and some orange marmalade,, light nutty notes, finishes with strong mineral notes and light bitterness.

M- Light bodied, refreshing, and mostly dry finish

O- Yeah, it is a little one-dimensional compared to Fort George's other IPA offerings, but I really liked it and it was great as a light hoppy beer on this beautiful day.
