So this is promoted as a pale ale and ipa hybrid. Something about the flavor of an ipa, but lower alcohol. 6.2% seems ipa territory to me, so I will list it as such.

Color is quite light with yellow and gold tones. High degree of citrus on the nose. Pineapple also, it seems. Flavor profile is smooth. Hops are not as in your face as you might expect, even with it being a hybrid and all. Minimal salty tones with pine on there as well. Citrus is the most dominating character here, and it's certainly in abundance. A bit on the "bright" side, but overall pretty good. Definitely not your typical ipa. The heavy citrus with what seem like pineapple tones put it in the "unique" realm.

Glad to see a new brewery in the Pittsburgh area.

My first review of a Roundabout beer. I've had enough of them...

Growler poured into a tulip

A - It pours a hazy orangish yellow with a 1 finger head and big soapy bubbles.

S - Very juicy. Soft grapefruit and other citrus notes. Nice smelling beer.

T - Citrus up front that turns to crackery malt mid palate.

M - Very clean finish. Medium bodied.

O - This batch of Hy-Pa is their best yet. It's a super easy drinking Pale/IPA hybrid.
