3.8/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a clear gold with a thick, fluffy white head.

S: Mild aromas of lemon, lime, orange, crackers, grain, and minerals are present on the nose, though they take a little while to reveal themselves.

T: Surprisingly bold notes of mandarin orange, lemon, lime, tangerine, pine, spruce, bitter herbs, grass, grain, crackers, minerals, and biscuits coat the palate. The finish is bitter and fruity with robust notes of mandarin orange, tangerine, lime, crackers, and minerals.

M: Very slight and slick in body. Carbonation is prickly upon the entry, but dies away almost completely by mid-palate. This one feels a bit strange in the mouth, making it a little more difficult to drink than I was hoping.

O: A very respectable brew. If the body were just a bit more substantial and the carbonation issue were sorted out, this would be a near perfect session IPA. As is, however, it is merely a very solid effort.

3.7/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12 oz can into a snifter.
Pours light blonde, with a finger of head.
Smells light hoppy, light malts in background.
Tastes clean light. Interesting that hop bitterness slowly increases with each taste.
Mouthfeel is refreshing and dry.
All on all for a 2.7% abv beer I thought it was decent. Could have a few of these on a hot summer day and not be a mess.

3.71/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz can with an illegible date stamp on the bottom.
Apricot-amber color with a medium, very durable head.

Aroma: fruity; hoppy; lightly bready.

Flavor: follows aroma. Mildly bitter but a bit more sour up front; reversed in the finish. Lasting aftertaste.

Feel: near medium body and carbonation; semi-dry finish.

O: Style seems similar to Berliner Weisse -- at least it is both flavorful and low ABV.
Certainly a big beer for 2.7%.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Can't read the date on the can other than 2013

Pours a chill hazed amber with a pinky of pearl colored head. Clears up nicely, above average head retention & average lacing

S: Grass, straw & lemon & a little pineapple

T: Follows the nose, light breadyness, a bit of grapefruit up front. Faint pineapple & stronger pear notes as this warms along with a little grassiness & lemons, a little graininess as well. Finishes with pineapple, grapefruit & a little bit of pear

MF: Light/medium bodied, firm carbonation. Pretty good balance

A lot flavor considering the age & low ABV. Drinks very easy. If the price was better I'd buy more

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12 oz can dated 12/19/13 poured into a snifter

A- A slightly hazy golden amber color with a two finger white head.

S- Citrus, some pineapple, some pale malts, piney hops.

T- Citrus, touch of pale malts, big piney finish, resin.

M- Smooth, crisp, light body.

O- A nice beer under 3% ABV. A surprisingly flavorful beer given the ABV. If this was cheaper I would buy this more often.

Had this on 2014-04-04 in Columbia, PA

A - Somewhat hazy golden-orange with a 3-finger pillowy white head that sticks around and leaves moderate lace.

S - Pineapple, light pine, hop floral. Sweet and fresh. Goodly dollop of aroma.

T - Hop forward with a good amount of lime zest bitterness. White crackers, lemon-lime flesh and some aspirin, mint and metallic on the finish. Lingering tart/metallic bitterness, which is too one-dimensional for how long it lasts.

M - Light body and medium carbonation. Crisp and prickly.

O - It's got a lot going for it for such a low ABV. I would have rated it higher if not for the aftertaste. Worth a try and I wouldn't pass on having it again.
