Kansas

4.23/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Enjoyed at Bier Station in Kansas City. Served in a bulbous but small Belgian tulip glass.

Appearance - Body is a pale straw yellow with a crisp white head of about a finger. Dissipates after 2-3 minutes and leaves faint, silky lacing that slides back down the glass into the beer. Foam ends up a rim of froth around the edges of the glass.

Smell - Floral citrus is dominant, with elements of tropical and mango coming on to round out the nose. Very fragrant and intoxicating--smells more like an IPA than a Pale.

Taste - Grapefruit bitterness with almost zero detection of malt balance--pungent hops and faint pine resin.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied, with moderate carbonation and a very drying finish. So dry it almost feels like it's sucking the moisture out of your mouth after you've swallowed.

Overall, a very assertive beer in it's own right, and even more so when you consider the fact that it's supposed to be a session Pale Ale. I'm impressed at all the flavor they've managed to pack into this low alcohol beer, and would probably pick this up before some other session IPAs if I was looking for something with a hoppy wallop of flavor
