From a 16 oz. can sampled May 16, 2021

The appearance is about what on would expect for the style with a cloudy, hazy amber-yellow ton and a lacing-leaving soft white head.

The aromas are on the subtle side but I get citrus and tropical fruit and also a breadiness.

Light-medium mouthfeel.

The taste is at first sweet and then the citrus and tropical fruit characters kick in. A slight peppery finish too.

Poured from a 16 oz can. Decent albeit watery hoppy taste. Great option for enjoying a low abv beer but still enjoying something that is well made and refreshing.

BB Co. Must've upped the abv% recently because this four pack of cans as of December 2020 has it at 4.5%.

A rather beautiful white haze within a yellow and golden color. Very thick hazy, NE style. Pure white foam cap, lots o lace.

Smells like vanilla covered oats and golden grains in the malt. Sweet tropical and citrus in the hops. Fresh lupulin sticky buds and more sweet pine and citrus. Very nice.

First sip, you'll notice the amazingly smooth, pillowy, yet fresh liquid mouthfeel. Refreshingly crisp but Soo damn smooth!

Hazy golden grains of the fields and chunky oats hit me first in the taste. Quickly balanced by some rather raw, earthy hops, freshly picked style flavor with orange peel, dry leaves and pine sap. The complexity is very high for a mild abv of 4.5.

Seriously delicious and relaxing.

Hard to believe this is only 3.5% ABV. A very hefty load of hops and flavors that make it drink like any other high ABV NEIPA, but without the slurred speech! :-)

Bought a single at Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury Vermont Sunday 9/22/19. No canning date visible.

a: Opaque dark yellow with a finger plus thick white head which receded to thin even surface foam and patchy lacing.

s: Slight tropical fruit blend.

t: Follows the nose with light bitterness. Dry finish

m; Hefty medium, very good body and some carbonation tingle.

o; Could easily pass for a higher ABV tropical NEIPA, lots of substance to this (no doubt the result of the wheat malt plus the flaked oats) and yet extremely sessionable at 4.5%. Not inexpensive for a session IPA (I paid almost $4 for the one) but worth it.

A: Pours a hazy yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Citrus and tropical fruit up front along with a light maltiness

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with some citrus and tropical hop notes along with some bready malt. Well balanced

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid session IPA that is super easy to drink

16 ounce can poured in to a tall tulip glass.

Watery yellow color, cloudy and light. Minimal white cap that drops to a film in a flash, some wisps of lacing.

Strong citrus hop aroma, orange, grapefruit, and lemon. Dry wheat and oats.

More lemon in the flavor than the other citrus, but they're there.

Light and slightly spritzer-like. Hoppy yet not bitter. Oats and malt give it sufficient body and some chew.

Nice hoppy session at an enjoyable 4.5% abv.

Pours a cloudy, bright gold color with a thin fizzy white head that settles quickly to a film.

Aroma has nice bright floral citrus notes- think tangerine and grapefruit.

Taste is the same and man is it fantastic! So fresh and packed with flavor for a session. Malt is pale and in the background

Feel is soft but a little thin. Almost no bitterness but packed with seltzery effervescence.

This is just a fantastic session that. I will be heading back out to get more as soon as I can. Kudos to Nature's Way Market for carrying it two states over.

L: A very light pale straw with about 1 inch of head with relatively big bubbles. Very cloudy and light. Pretty.

S: Tropical fruit - mango, even some orange. Definitely more sweet than sour. I don't get the sour citrus notes that are normally present in citra hops. Enjoyable!

T: Quite bitter and biting. Citrus peel. Extremely dry taste - I don't notice any of the sweetness or malt coming through. As nice as the aroma is, I don't find the taste to be as enjoyable.

F: Very juicy. Carbonation at a really nice medium level. This is a relatively light beer for BBCO at just 4.5%

O: The visuals and aroma of this session IPA will get you off on the right foot. However, this is quite bitter and didn't quite do it for me. If you like dry hops, though, this might be for you!
