Appearance: pours a cloudy straw yellow color with a 2" fluffy head that slowly falls.

Smell: light citrus and a floral hop presence is all you can pull from the glass.

Taste: caramel, lemon zest, oranges, a hint of pepper spice, and a floral bitterness rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp throughout. Citrus and floral tones last long on the tongue.

Overall: a simple refreshing IPA that has a lower ABV but still has the full flavor you expect from a regular IPA.

This low-ABV IPA from Burial, single-hopped with Amarillo, is a very slightly hazy, effervescent straw-colored beer with a giant creamy white head; head retention is brief and lacing is fair, consisting of blotches, swoops and clouds. The nose leads with bready malt that is quickly overtaken by a medium-intensity fusion of tamarind and bright pineapple, with hints of spicy florals and body odor. Up front, the palate is modestly bitter, thinnish pineapple; mid-palate a bit of the tamarind from the nose comes in, and a bit of yeastiness is observed, but the flavor remains largely tart, thinnish pineapple. Malt character is negligible. The finish is a modest hit of tart citrus, and is fairly crisp; the linger is a faint tart citrus tang that lasts for a few minutes. Retrogustative olfaction is vaguely grassy. Mouthfeel is commensurate with the light body, and is slightly astringent; the texture is medium-creamy and medium-prickly from the assertive carbonation.

Pours a murky yellow/gold with medium carbonation. Poured nice an foamy with good mouthfeel but not super creamy as at first look I thought this might be a NE IPA. Taste is hoppy with little malt. Hops tasted like cascade with some azacca or mosaic but I guess this is a SMASH? I wouldn't have guessed Amarillo. Either way a nice tasty session IPA.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy pale yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that reduces to a large patch of thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/tangerine, stone fruit/apricot, stone fruit/peach, and grassy hops over the top of light aromas of slightly sweet grainy malts.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of slightly sweet grainy malts. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of citrus/tangerine, stone fruit/apricot, stone fruit/peach, and grassy hops which contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades away pretty quickly.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp.

O: Very easy to drink, very sessionable, and very enjoyable. One of the better session IPAs available since the mouthfeel is not watery like some others. Definitely worth grabbing. One that I could easily have a couple of and I would definitely enjoy again.

I haven't had much from Burial, but this one I thought was pretty solid! I get a little juicy hop flavor with slightly earthy and grassy qualities to it as well that blend together nicely. Looking forward to checking out more from what they offer. Plus the cans are freaking beautiful.

Hazy yellow with a scant white head. Oily, somewhat dank hop aromatics: apricots, peaches, grapefruit, and green herbs. Flavor follows suit - zesty, oily hop resins becoming watery in the finish, but maintaining the deliciously bright fruitiness of the Amarillo. Tangerine, grass, stone fruit, and a bit of spiciness. Crisp and light. This is way better than the "Summer Hop" version. Still too expensive for what it is, but this one was a treat to drink.
