Sampled at the Brewpub on tap. Described as having the same profile as the Racer 5 IPA but with a lower alcohol content. And indeed the flavor was in many ways like a mild Racer 5.

A - Clear light gold color with thinish white head.

S - Decent hop aroma, but much more light than the Racer 5 as expected. Hints of grass and citrus.

T - Light and refreshing with a traces of green grassiness, lemon, and orange.

M - Fairly light and fizzy.

D - A session beer to be sure--I could drink this all night. Not a ton of character, definitely a lighter version of the Racer 5, but I would stop short of describing it as watered down.
