Arrives a clear, light golden color with a neatly white head. Scattered lace left behind.
Smell is amazing. Floral, citrus, grass, crackers, light malt.
Taste is phenomenal for a pale. Juicy, citrus, floral, grassy, light crackers & malt.
No bitterness in this claimed zero IBU brew but all the nose of a DIPA. Amazing.

Zero Fuckin IBU! I was skeptical but i believe they have achieved it or close to it. All the hop character and flavor without the bitterness. Drank from newly released 2 wees old can so not sure how this will taste after a few months on the shelf. ZFG!

A zen-like title to a pretty darn good brew...

What attracted me to this beer was the can art - a finger given along with an assortment of other images. What will keep me coming back to this brew is the overall experience. A pale yellow liquid pours out of their tall can to release a foamy head with good staying power and lacing. The smell is hop-forward but not the punch-in-your-face kind, and the mouthfeel is light-bodied (and I mean light) but without being watery - the liquid almost floats in your mouth - unlike any other I have had. The taste is also light, on hops, on citrus, and balanced on the low end without meaning to overpower. Truly a special beer from what I hope will become one of my new go-to brewers...

A: Pours a lightly hazy pale golden yellow in color with slightly heavier than moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate amount of straw yellow + bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall pillowy foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of floral, citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange zest, and grassy hops over the top of light aromas of cracker + cereal grain malts with a very light amount of grainy sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of cracker + cereal grain malts with a very light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of floral, citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange zest, and grassy hops which impart minimal amounts of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving lingering floral + grassy hop flavors along with some light vinous (white grape) flavors.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Lightly crisp.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and minimal amounts of bitterness. Nice hop flavors and aromas.

An odd sour citrus flavor to this comes as a real surprise. I had to double take on the label to be sure this wasn't a sour / lime adjunct IPA. Not bad but definitely not what one would expect from a low bitterness pale ale.

Canned on 09/27/18
Appearance: Hazy golden orange body with a ton of lovely lacing in the glass.
Aroma: Plenty of grapefruit and orange.some headliners and a slight pepper like aroma as well.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Lemon, orange and something akin to white grape juice. Nice light mouthful that makes this 5.5% abv crushable.
Overall: A decent pale ale that is tasty and easy to drnk.

They don't call it a NEIPA but the taste and look is similar.
