12 oz. can poured into vertical tulip
(May 24, 2018 born-on date printed on label; 4.4% ABV printed on can)

L: murky gold, almost 100% opaque, topped by almost full inch of offwhite/beige foam that doesn't stick; keeps a thin collar of offwhite foam; laces a little

S: sweet citrus ... grapefruit juice, candied orange, pineapple; at times the more bitter grapefruit pops out front and leads

T: follows the nose but a shade less sweet and more earthy to start off with; bitterness is mild but builds in the aftertaste; as the palate adjusts and the beer warms, the flavor gets sweeter

F: good middle ground all around; carbonation is very ale appropriate, giving it a thin layer of crispness with what feels like teeny, tiny bubbles; weight isn't heavy but surprisingly well filled out for a 4.4% ABV brew

O: my can is almost 3 months old and it's still chock full of good hop flavor; the malt has added quite a bit of sweetness, but there's still a ton of grapefruit in both the nose and flavor, and the little earthy buildup in the aftertaste suggests No Label didn't skimp on the hops; at so manageable an ABV and as well as it ages, this one immediately shoots into go-to range for me

Pours a very hazy amber color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention is good. Lacing is very good. Nice, fresh citrus aroma with a good amount of piney resin. For a low ABV IPA, it has a lot of citrus flavor with a big piney bitter hop. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Low ABV (4.40% for an IPA? Come on...). Floral hopwise, but that's kind of it. Pale malts balance out any hop bitterness.

Enjoyable and easy to drink but lacking in terms of hop pungency, depth of flavour, complexity, and subtlety. Very simplistic fare marketed as an IPA in spite of being a pale ale. I guess we've eschewed the vague "Session IPA" marketing nonsense and gone right to cheating...oddly, though, this feels more honest.
