Pours a chill-hazed amber color in the tall goblet. Foam is white and fairly persistent. Body is thin, as typical for a session IPA, but there is more malty substance than would be expected in a lower-alcohol brew. Flowery aroma with a citrus fragrance.

This starts with a pleasant malty warmth. Bitter aftertaste. Distinct grapefruit taste with plenty of acidity. Overall this is crisp and flavorful, though more bitter than needed except for the certified IPA categorization. Sudsy and appealing mouthfeel.

Somebody needs to blind-taste a line-up of a bunch of these style of brews. This seems like one of the better ones. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego for $6.49.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus juice, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with tea, citrus fruit, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a fairly low ABV but still has really solid citrus forward hop characteristics all around.

Serving type: bottle.

Super carbonated, taste like club soda mixed with IPA. Not a very good beer, stick to the belching beaver regular IPA
