I was actually very surprised with this beer. At 3.8% I kind of laughed before i opened it. The hop profile is very present, and looks good as well. It is a very light bodied beer, but still tastes so lovely. I could drink a million of these and be very happy. Definetly a beer on a hot summers day, that won't dry you out. I think this will server well as an entry brew for people just getting into the scene. Not over powering by any means, and still has that IPA aroma and taste.

Pour is medium yellow with great foamy head. Smells of hops, citrus, and little pine. Taste is very smooth with light bitters and hops, citrus abounds. Very light and smooth beer, this is such a tasty beer and just awesome for a hot summer day and you want a light beer with tons and tons of flavor. Just a solid beer and a great IPA taste without the heavy ABV.
