12 oz. can poured into a tulip glass.

a: Golden body with slight haziness. Thin head with minimal lacing.

s: Malt aroma. Slight sour citrus.

t: Bready up front. Dry citrus and pine finish.

mf: Thin with nice carbonation. Dry peppery finish. Refreshing.

o: A nice little IPA. Tastes more like a pale ale. Feels like a nice summer beer but the alcohol is masked so a few could sneak up on one. I like most of the beers from BB&A. They do a nice job. Their Heinnieweisse is a better example though.

Golden color with a thin head with short retention.
Mild aroma with notes of pale malt and maybe a light grapefruit.
Flavor with notes of grapefruit, lemon, butter on bread, some oxidation and grass. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to watery body with appropriate carbonation. It is surprising they were able hiding 6.1% under this dress.
That is like a mass version of an IPA, but also meaning I would rather having that than any Adjunct Lager, but it does not kill a craving for a due IPA.
