Bottled Jan. 20 2014.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip.

a: Clear gold with a finger thick white head which receded quickly to fairly even thin surface foam and moderate lacing.

s: Medium citrus.

t: Quite strong citrus hops up front over a light malt base. Bitterness is pronounced on the palate and tongue. Bitter finish.

m: Light to moderate.

o: A hop-dominated low ABV IPA. Good summer brew if hops bitterness is your thing. I prefer Lagunitas regular IPA over this, and Sucks way over both of them. Their hop bite is easier to take and more pleasantly citrusy than here, and their malt bases are significantly more substantial.

Poured an attractive clear golden color with a thin head of white foam that quickly dissipated to a
ring of white leaving some lacing down the glass. It looks light for an IPA, but otherwise looks quite good. Scents of citrus peel, pine resin, cedar, and faint grassy aromas. A good, hop-dominated, West Coast IPA style aroma. Very nice. Flavor begins with a big burst of hop flavor, with bitter citrus peel, citrus pith, pine resin, and some grapefruit rind and grassy hop flavors that become more prominent towards the finish. Finish is hops, grassy and grapefruit rind as noted above, but with a little bit of grainy malt showing through. Aftertaste is hop bitterness. A very hop forward flavor, infact almost entirely hops, with very little malt presence at all. Still very good as a hop forward beer. Mouthfeel is light bodied and slightly watery, with a resiounous and semi-drying feel and moderate carbonation. Quite easy to drink as a result, very much feels like a session ale should. Overall this is an excellent session ale and light beer with a bold, hop-forward flavor and aroma that puts it a cut above any light lager offerings. While not quite as good as a full fledged IPA, it is a nice warm weather beer and an excellent session offering. On those merits its worth drinking regularly.

I usually don't review beers and prefer to tick but this brought me out of my shell!
12oz bottle poured straight down my throat. No stemware.
Bottled late October or early November.
Damn, a fine beer!
The flavor of a great IPA. Lots of fruit and nice mellow hops.
Aroma is also what I'd expect from my go-to IPA's, which I guess technically this is style-wise.
While I've seen this on the shelves for quite some time, I've got to say, this has me thinking that lower abv IPA's like this aren't a gimic.
May be my go-to weeknight style. I see it as akin to a light beer for someone on a diet. But for me my "diet" would be the higher ABV dipa's that I usually enjoy during the week.
Hot damn, a great beer!
