Pours a very clear light orange-copper in color with a finger + of long lasting white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus and pine, a bit dank; very inviting. Flavors are focused on dank hops. Very light body and moderate carbonation. Bottom line: this beer is crushable, lots of flavor packed in to just 2.7% ABV.

12 oz can poured into 13 oz tulip

A — A mild to moderate pour yields a massive billowing off-white head that rises out of the glass with some structure and height. Eventually it falls and settles into a thin layer of foam on top of the body of yellow fizzy beer, slight haze to it, color is reminiscent of the can.

S — Smell is grainy, sweet, bitter, hoppy, citra, earthy. The potential is there, but overall very very light and dominated by a lot of grain and malt.

T — Crisp, clean, grainy, malty, a little bit of earthy prickly hops make a statement, but fade quickly into a subtle malt sweetness.

M — Bubbly, ample carbonation, clean, semi-lingering grainy finish.

O — Just ok, very light in all aspects, not my favorite hop profile and lacks balance.

I love this beer as a " I have a really busy day at work tomorrow, and I want a few beers, and there must be an IPA out there that won't get me drunk if I drink 5 or 6" answer to a problem. At half of the ABV of a traditional lite beer, problem solved!

Love this brewer, but not this one. Even my Brooklyn girl friend said - "too soapy, too thin. What happened to your IPAs!"

A: Pours hazy pale, yellowish straw body with particulates. 1 Finger white frothy head which had decent retention and moderate amounts of lacing. But looks weak to start with.

S: Mild aromas of soap, balanced with crackery malts, pine and citrus hops.

T: Again too sudsy soapy, and mostly pine and citrus hops. No real bitterness and sometimes lacking a malt core.

M: On the lighter side of light. Thin. contributes to the soapy feel.

O: Craft beer's answer to the ultra mass produced beers? Why bother? Not really an IPA. But I did manage to enjoy the 6 while working as it's a creative high!

Appearance: Golden orange with yeast in suspension. The white head is large and pillowy
Aroma: A cracker malt note with DME homebrew
Taste: Very little but watered down crackers and a slight semblance of citrus hops
Mouthfeel: Very light and watery with a mediun-high carbonation
Overall: At 2.7%, this taste essentially like water with a pinch of malt to call it a beer
