look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

11.2 oz beer was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer fast to a thin layer. It is a pale orange with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Some spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Grassy, piney, and citrus hops. Some light caramel malts in the background. You can't really expect much for 2.7% beer.

Taste: Very hoppy. Resiny, mango, grassy, pineapple, mango, tangerine, and grapefruit. There is some simple and light malts in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Super light bodied, medium carbonation, a little dry, very drinkable and sessionable too.

Overall: Probably one of the best light IPA's I have ever had. This beer would be great after exercising or doing yardwork.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz single can, sold as rather auspiciously over-priced six-packs around here. Nice history lesson on the word 'bikini' detailed on the label blurb.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, pale golden yellow hue, with four fat fingers (or a fistful of skinny, take yer pick) of puffy, loosely foamy, and rocky dirty white head, which leaves some pleasant deer antler lace around the glass as it slowly fades out.

It smells of dank pine resin, orange and grapefruit rind, caramel cream, a wet stone minerality, a touch of earthy yeast, and further leafy, musty hops. The taste is more bitter pine needle and its forest floor detritus friends, astringent grapefruit, lemon, and blood orange pith, biscuity caramel malt, crackery bread, and more herbal, leafy, and somewhat floral hops. No perfume danger here, boyos.

The carbonation is pretty tight in its edgy, wide-spread deployment, the body on the light side of medium weight, and quite plainly smooth, the hops not up to playing when the cat's away. It finishes mostly dry, the piney, leafy, etc. hops outshining any lingering citrus notes in their sloughing off of the now wan malt.

Tending towards a particular end-point (yet still adhering to the general 'point' of the ISA proto-style), Bikini Beer does well by its American IPA roots. Largely a hop-driven affair, in the right way, perhaps a bit of mouthfeel malaise is encountered due to the low ABV, but that's easily forgotten - I can sense my own bikini line likes this just fine as well!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Modest, short-lived head. Lots of slippery, spotty lace. Mild haze. Light amber color.

Pleasant blend of pale malt and floral hop.

Relatively dry, pale malt initial flavor. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel--above average effervescence. Good biting (white pepper-like) hop. Strongest in the swallow and leaves a long aftertaste.

Serving type: can
