3.45/5 rDev -10.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Canned on 4/9/12, ten months ago.
Appearance: Slightly hazy orange/golden hue with a thin off-white head.
Aroma: Bread, light pepper, earth, citrus. Not very aromatic.
Taste: Like in the nose. A slightly peppery biscuit flavor as the malt base a bit of earthy hops. There is a hint of orange zest but the hops are quite faded. I'd peg the IBUs at around 35 (listed as 42 on brewery website). Finish is smooth with a little hop after burn. Decent flavor for the low 4.4% ABV. The hops that were used seem to be going for a more hearty flavor rather than juiciness.
Mouthfeel: Thin in body with average carbonation. Easy drinkability and probably sessionable if you enjoy the flavor.
Final Thoughts: A good introductory beer for someone new to craft. It's a decent beer all around that does the most with its flavor given the low ABV. Would I drink it again? Probably not.

12oz can poured into snifter.
Upon cracking the can, a strong pineapple and grapefruit aroma is present.
A) 4-It pours a quarter inch head that settles into a fine misty layer on the surface with a bit of glass lining. The beer is an orangy-peach color, initially was very cloudy. It clarifies some, but not completely.
S) 5-It's a session, extra pale that smells like your finest double ipa. Pineapple, citrus, grapefruit and a fine pine, great outdoors rush.
T) 3.75- Bitter in the fore, and bitter in the finish. Not as sweet as was anticipated. Very piny, but more bitter than pine, with a touch of lemon in the finish. The beer boasts a modest 42ibu, but you'd guess higher.
M) 3.5- The beer is very light in its consistency. It has a fine carbonation to it . The beer has a light to medium malt profile, that goes largely unnoticed, the main focus being the hops. The beer has a dry finish, with a lingering bitter and belches that reignite the hop receptors of the brain.
O) 4.0625- Nuff said
