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

Appearance- light amber, clear with a dense white head. The aroma is citrusy hops- cascade or something similar. The flavor is nice. It has a smooth, medium bodied malt flavor with a touch of caramel sweetness and a sharp hop punch. Nicely balanced with an emphasis on hop bitterness and a floral and citrusy hop flavor and aroma. The mouthfeel is on the light side but very smooth and creamy. Overall this beer is a very solid IPA. All of the features balance out to be a very tasty, thirst quenching, and drinkable IPA. As far as IPA's go this is light enough on the ABV to have a couple without getting too much alcohol.

1.64/5  rDev -55.9%
look: 2.25 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Why do I think a slightly hoppy Bud Light. Better than Coors but not by much. Very disappointed. I really would have been better off with a Bud Light or Coors and saved about five bucks! I would not recommend this beer at all. It's the first High Point I've tried and probably the last.

A: Pale amber in color; slightly cloudy in glass; minimal head; left heavy lacing on glass
