On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Clear golden and light amber. Thin near-white head. Irregular lines and spiderwebs of light stick left down the glass.

Citrus zest, floral, light biscuit, and a little sweetness in the aroma. Simple and straightforward. Smells like a mild version of many of Lagunitas's beers.

Not a hugely flavorful beer. Mild citrus zest, floral notes, some biscuit, and mild caramel sweetness combine nicely, but this simply doesn't have a lot of flavor. Unlike many low ABV IPAs brewed these days by the likes of Alpine or Societe, for example, this one tastes particularly light, low in alcohol, and somewhat boring.

Thinner in bodied than preferred, with low-moderate carbonation.

A fairly boring session IPA, though without flaw.

Growler from Kings Park Beer & Soda; pours a hazy gold color with a big 2 finger foamy white head that faded slowly and left good lacing with rings as it went down.

Smells of grapefruit up front, followed by lemon zest, tangerine, coriander, citrus hops, lots of citrus fruit, floral hops, herbs, light spices, mild caramel and light biscuit or malty hints. Almost smells like Sorachi Ace hops add the lemon accents. There are some smells that I could not figure out, but they were secondary to the citrus and grapefruit aroma.

Tastes like it smells with grapefruit up front, followed by lemon zest, tangerine, coriander, citrus hops, orange peel, some other citrus fruit that is hard to distinguish, floral hops, herbs, piney hops, spices like pepper and cinnamon, mild caramel, biscuit, sweet malt and more essence of lemon. It is like drinking a glass of grapefruit juice with zero alcohol showing through. Might be too bitter to session for some, but it's damn tasty and refreshing and I had two pints in less than 20 minutes.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp and zesty with very mild carbonation, a light to medium body and a bitter finish that ends clean and leaves a citrus pucker.

Overall a very good beer that is a really different experience and a really tasty beer; seems like the type if beer to have on tap to maximize the freshness. I recommend this beer and very much enjoyed it.

On tap at 2 Bros. in Salem. Pours a semi hazy light golden color with a 1/4 inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is fruity, with lots of tropical fruits. Pineapple is the one I'm picking up on the most. The taste is juicy tropical fruits upfront with a lightly bitter flavor. A bit floral but this one if mostly tropical fruits and citrus hops. Virtually no alcohol flavor, which isn't surprising considering the abv. Insanely drinkable. Light and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, pretty good low abv Pale Ale with alot of hop flavor.
