Notes: Don’t let the pillow soft all-citra whispers fool you. This little pale packs a snappy mouthful of peach gummies + crisp orange rind + dried mango that satisfies even the chattiest chatterboxes.

Exceptional Pale Ale... Cloudy like a NEIPA, it's the tastiest, hoppiest 5% beer I've ever seen. The same recipe as Homestyle except they used Citra hops instead of Mosaic. I LOVE IT

Gorgeous (for an American pale ale) hazy straw-gold body with a soft off-white head and little doses of lacing.

Floral and citrus nose with a strong, standout note of sweet mango and pineapple. Quite wonderful and a little unexpected.

Taste doesn’t keep up. Very grassy, herbal, a little green, with much less citrus and almost no tropical notes on the tongue. Still a very easy sipper, just not particularly complex or nuanced.

Typical soft, silky BI NE APA/IPA feel, though a little thinner (unsurprisingly) versus their bigger IPAs and IIPAs.

Solid if unspectacular lower ABV offering from BI, with some of the notes on the nose being the standout feature.
