4.05/5  rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: light golden hue with a good effervescence and a touch of haze. Head is a thick finger of pillowy white foam with very good retention and leaving a nice, chunky lace. The way-above average head quality of this beer helps make up for the rather pale coloring for the style.

Smell: massive citrusy, earthy and grassy hops; the overall impression is of freshly picked green hops. Quite good.

Taste: massive citrusy, earthy and grassy hops. Do I sound like I'm repeating myself? The nice thing about the flavor here is that, while hoppiness is maximized, bitterness is rather low and the beer is quite balanced despite is low ABV.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation. It's almost creamy.

Overall: this beer has great balance and is massively drinkable. I love the trend toward session beers of all shades, but the low-alcohol hop bomb is one of my favorites.

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!
