Perfectly clear yellow color with a soapy white head that provides significant lacing, this beautiful WCIPA features some citrus (oranges) and a nice pine note.

The taste is some orange and also features the pine, but it doesn’t quite “pop.” Still an easy drinker with the drying mouthfeel, but this could’ve been more.

Look - light clear golden with small head
Smell - herbal, hint of citrus, floral, malty, piney
Taste - some hoppy citrus, pine, and malty
Feel - light in the mouth with medium carbonation. Malty, piney, lemon citrus rind that has a decent lingering aftertaste and dry finish.
Overall - Good beer that is easy to drink at only 5.9% abv. I liked the malty flavor and dry finish the most in this one. Of course Free Dive is enjoyed most when listening to Free Fallin' by Tom Petty.

From a 16oz can, dated 02/23/22… I think - it’s a wodgy date stamp. Served in a spiegelau IPA glass.

Pours a super-pale wheat-gold with two-plus fingers of pouffy, puckered suds. Retention is exceptional, leaving a thick but slippery curtain of gobby lacings. I almost don’t care what it tastes like; it’s a damn pretty beer.

Faint aroma of stale soda crackers and not much else. See? I spoke too soon about how good it looked.

Taste is mostly in line with the nose. It’s pretty evenly balanced between crackery malt and vaguely citrusy hops. Tasting marmalade, ginger ale and aspirin.

Feel is creamy smooth, medium-slick bodied and gently carbonated. Easy enough drinking but it could use a few more bubbles.

Overall, it’s OK. Sort of like drinking ginger ale. Anyway, it’s easy to drink, and I’m going to finish the four-pack. I may have forgotten it by tomorrow or I may very well pick it up again if I see it in the store another day. No regrets.

Very light tropical ipa. At this abv and with the light mouthfeel, this comes off as a great session ipa to me. Perfect for warm weather and the beach. Nicely done.
