3.75/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

(Batch 3.1% ABV). 330ml bottle. Tumbler glass. Every time I´ve enjoyed this I felt it so amazing. Yellow color & foggy appearance. White froth, copious crown, good retention, rocky lasting spots & lacing. Floral, earthy, citric, intense fresh yeast aromas, piney & resiny fragrances. Sharp bitter flavor on the upfront lingers into a dry bitter finish. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Rough & earthy hops in the middle as well as pine needles are barely balanced by pale malts. Oily texture. Citric astringency & aftertaste. Refreshing. Very easy drinkability as expected from a low alcohol beer. Highly recommended to avoid a boring session beer.

3.68/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Cellar temp bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Clear yellow liquid, plenty of large bubbles on the bottom of the glass that occasionally break away and rise to the surface. White foam head with good lacing.

S: Big citrus nose with a touch of pale malt sweetness.

T: Very bitter and hoppy. Citrus flavors are everywhere. This beer was described to me as hop juice, but to me its more like hoppy grapefruit juice. There is just that much citrus.

M: The body doesn't feel as light as you'd expect such a low ABV beer would possess. Carbonation is very good. There is a watery coat left behind that has some bitterness.

O: An interesting beer. I'd certainly recommend it to anyone who doubts a low alcohol beer can have a big hop flavor.

3.73/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bright blonde with snow white film and some odd floaties and just the occasional trail.
Incredible grapefruit and lemon hard candy nose, like Jarl.
Unripe melon and a hint of saltines crushed by what has to be Citra musty grapefruit.
Lemon fruit pastille finish and loooong grapefruit rind and aspirin linger. Light, crisp, salty, slightly oily.

A true accomplishment to cram this many hops into a 2.8% beer. (Are you listening, Brits?) But consequently it lacks the malts (pilsner and carapils only) to back up the IBUs. Quenching but not easy, though I would drink it by the 6 pack at this strength.

Edit: Turns out to be Amarillo single hopped.

First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

All hail these importers bringing us new and interesting selections. Such as this Spanish attempt at an American IPA. Straw-yellow pour with a slight haze, medium-sized foamy white head that retained well, leaving doily lacing on the glass. Aroma was nice, not exactly what I'd call "spot on" for the style, but a good start: crisp grassy hops, citrus notes, lighter touches of earthiness and pale malts. I'll note the obvious: this delivers a blast of great flavor for a 2.8% ABV brew. Crisp and hoppy, grassy, leafy, lemony...impressive. Tasty enough to distinguish it from its more mellow cousin, the English IPA. The flavor quite makes up for the inevitable lack of body, which, all things considered, still was on the "close to medium end" of light. Pretty nice overall.

Serving type: on-tap
