4.39/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

General: Found a 6 pack of this down in San Diego and brought it home. Poured this into a bottle logic lab glass for the tasting.

Appearance: This is a light gold, crystal clear with a light fluffy white head. The head doesn't lace too much and it diminishes fairly quickly.

Aroma: this is a nice light hoppy grassy aroma with some mild hints of citrus. This is a classic style IPA aroma, I love it.

Mouthfeel: For a traditional IPA this is a little thin but they are marketing this as a "fractional" IPA in that it's not a big alcohol beer. This seems about right for this style. The carbonation is moderate.

Taste: Great light bitterness with a slight hit of citrus. The hops come through first and foremost just like an IPA should. There really isn't any malt supporting this hop but because it's so moderate, it just works.

Overall: This is awesome, a nice mild IPA that you can drink 4-5 of at a bar-b-q and not be hammered. This will be one of my go-to IPAs once I can find it locally!

3.81/5  rDev -5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Love the fact that this IPA has a low ABV. That way I can take them outside and have a few and not worry about them sneaking up on me after two or three. In my opinion, its the ultimate beer to take outdoors for a cookout or picnic. Its light and crisp with bold notes of citrus and pine like any solid IPA should have. I almost get a little taste of lemon and lime in the mix as well. Its refreshing and light, but wonderfully balanced to give you that IPA experience!
