I got this off the single shelf at my local Giant Eagle. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had citrus notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with bitter citrus finish. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a good beer.

I had this brew on tap at a recent blues show in Durham, NC. Nice citrusy aroma with a just a tiny hint of pine. Eady drinking, not-to-heavy IPA that is a bit sweeter than my normal IPA's, but this is the new haze craze. Overall, I would have it again....in fact I grabbed a 6 at Lowes Foods today.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is citrus, grass and hops. The taste matches the nose.

Serviceable, sessionable and still flavorful, the Hi-Wire beer makers put this light bodied IPA on a tee.

Lo-Pitch is billed as a juicy IPA that employs a sexy array of hops to sell a bold citrus aroma when compared to its gravity. Pale gold, the beer sheds a light amber hue before divulging its caramelized malts, mild toast and nutty influences in a granola-like flavor that skirts across the early palate.

Growing bitterness soon commands the middle palate as the taste of pink grapefruit, orange and a kiss of lemon takes over the fleeting sweetness and takes the tastebuds in a decidedly bitter direction. Dry pine, fresh grassiness and a tea-like verbena bite sells the hops strong as the late palate certainly appeases the hop heads.

Medium light in body, the beer's dry maltiness adds just enough character to support the sharpness of hops. A quick linger of citrus and caramel dies off shortly while the dry hop resins play into a medium long, drying aftertaste.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 5/16/2017. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy pale golden/straw yellow color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, papaya, melon, berry, citrus zest, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, papaya, melon, berry, citrus zest, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, papaya, melon, berry, citrus zest, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors lingering after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, and slightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is an excellent session IPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful for the low ABV, never watery feeling. Nicely juicy, vibrant, and lightly dank hops; with a great balancing bready malt backbone. A very enjoyable offering. One of the better session IPAs I have had, very well made.
