12 oz can with a packaged date of August 2015 from Tom at the 2015 Albino Skunk Music Festivaal.
Good head over an Amber body.
This has only moderate strength aroma but a strong hoppy flavor.
Hoppy aroma with an earthy-herbal-grapefruit flavor.
Near medium body with medium carbonation.

This low-ABV IPA is a very slightly hazy, slightly sparkling deep gold beer; its brief-lived, giant pebbly ivory-colored head leaves very sparse streaks of lacing. The nose is big: a nice, balanced blend of citrus, pine and florals. On the palate it starts as bitter, sour grapefruit, joined mid-palate by the pine and the florals. There is really no malt presence to speak of, and it is quite dry as far as sweetness goes. The finish is piney florals, followed by the onset of a style-moderate clinging hop bitterness that lingers for a few minutes. The mouthfeel is biggish for the light-medium body- this is one session IPA that is not watery- and the texture is moderately creamy. The carbonation is fairly soft and does not really make itself known. Altogether, this is a very drinkable beer. (12 oz can, 59 days after pkg.)

This beer is the perfect halfway point between a super heady IPA and your run of the mill macro. Picked up a 15 pack of cans for the fridge. I have had straight from the can and poured into the Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Solid either way.

I don't expect this beer will win awards but that shouldn't stop you from trying it.
