4.16/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Very pale for an IPA. A light gold with a nice white head and a touch of lace. Smell is earthy with a touch of citrus. Nice malt undercurrent that brings olfactory memories of full fleged IPAs. Taste is big with earthy hops and light pine and faint citrus. They really got the order right for the abv. Malt sweetness has just enough body to balance the considerable hoppines. Nice grains and and light sweetness. Finish is quite dry and clean with a sharp bit hop oil lingering. Feel is crisp and quenching with a light but substantial body. A perfect thirst quenching session beer. Maybe the best low abv IPA I've had.

On tap at the Lionheart in Albany, NY.

Pours a light golden yellow, with a half inch fizzy head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells grassy, with some grapefruit, and pine.

As with most session IPas, not a whole lot of malt flavor here. This one feels slightly watery- hop water, basically. Some light pine, a bit of grapefruit, and a light grassy flavor. Just honestly a little bit boring.

This one is obviously light bodied, with a medium amount of carbonation, and a crisp, but watery mouthfeel.

I'm sure War Elephant is great, haven't tried it yet, but this one is disappointing. Pass.
