Left of the Dial pours a clear yellow/orange with a moderate sized, stiff head on top. As the foam dissolves it leaves a nice coating of lace on the glass.
The aroma has nice notes of orange citrus,pine, lemon grass and bready malt.
Each sip of this light to medium bodied beer is smooth with moderate carbonation. The flavor is nicely balanced between floral hops and pale malt. It begins with pine and orange citrus with a little lemon mixed in. Pale malt is present throughout and nicely balances the hops. It finishes somewhat bitter and very dry. When gone the citrus and sweet malt lingers on the palate.
This is a very easy drinking beer with a nice balance. Lots of flavor in this low abv brew.

2.64/5 rDev -34%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25
A: Similar to a light apple juice. 1/2 finger head slowly fading.
S: Juicy hops. Plenty of aroma. Piney and tropical. Malts smell lightly roasted and a little caramel note.
T: Whamp whamp. Where did the nose go? It tastes like bitter tap water. The malt is weak at best and only as it warms. All the juicy tropical notes are missing and all that is left is bitter.
M: A little frothy, reminiscent of a champagne carbonation but certainly not as aggressive. Body is light.
O: I definitely won't buy again. This beer looked good, smelled great, and brought nothing to the palate. It was slightly better as it warmed.

Served on-tap at Meadhall in Cambridge, MA
A: Pours a lightly hazy medium golden orange in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some apricot + copper highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy off white head that reduces to a medium sized medium thick patch, a very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of biscuit malts with a touch of caramel sweetness underneath much stronger aromas of citrus/grapefruit and spicy/peppery hops.
T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. There are moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit and spicy/peppery hops which contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness which lingers for a while.
M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Creamy.
O: I'm really excited to have happened upon Notch beers while I was in Boston - I love a brewery that makes interesting and tasty beers while keeping the ABV low. This is delicious and super easy to drink, I wish that I could have it as my every day beer.

20 and 10 oz pours from Deep Ellum on 5/2/2013.
Who would have though a 4.3% ABV IPA could be so good. Straw to golden with a very whispy head. West coast aroma, pine and tropical fruit. The taste follow suit with a bit of grain present. Lots of flavor despite the low alcohol. Light body and minimal carbonation. I started with the 10 oz. and realized my mistake, so I order the full pour next.
