Slightly Mighty IPASlightly Mighty IPA
Notes: A lo-cal IPA that is slight in cals and carbs with mighty hop flavor! Slightly Mighty has all the flavor and tropical aromas of a world class IPA, but with only 95 calories, 3.6g carbs, 1g protein and 0g fat. Brewed with locally-grown barley, and a touch of monk fruit that delivers body and complexity but adds zero calories or carbs, Slightly Mighty is light-bodied and offers a lingering balanced sweetness.

I rated it well because of what it is. It’s a low calorie IPA. Doesn’t get much better than this. I also like Light hearted Ale by bell’s. Both great!

I have spent a lot of time searching for a high quality low calorie ipa. The monkfruit in this ipa takes it to a different level for a lighter beer. It may not compete with the best ipas in the world but if you are looking for a crushable low calorie ipa that does not lack in flavor, I can't recommend this one enough

Great IPA with low calories. Taste like the Dogfish Head 30 IMO without the higher calories and high ABV. Recommended

Poured 12oz can into tulip glass. Surprisingly good! I’m living keto these days and this is only the 3rd low carb IPA I’d give good marks.

Nice color, 3 finger head, slightly cloudy light amber color. Smells good with some sweet and some hoppy notes. First swig tasted great with a nice bitterness.

I was worried the monk fruit would create a terrible aftertaste. The aftertaste is there, but nowhere near what I expected. In fact it’s very minimal.

Nice hoppy IPA flavor. I wouldn’t have known it was a light beer if someone poured it and handed it to me. Really good.

12oz can best by date June 2022 into a pint glass.
L: Pours medium hazed dull lemon w/a 1" porous eggshell white head that recedes to a soapy skin. Random light skeletal lacing.
S: Floral, soapy. Not much aroma at all.
T: Zesty, sharp, tangy & lightly sour, gently sweet, lemon zest, melon rind, a hint of bread. Mildly tropical & moderately thin. Zesty bitterness lingers. No real malt profile.
F: Juicy, crisp, light bodied prickly mouth feel w/a medium dry fast finish.
O: Tastes like crisp lemonade or punch. It's okay in it's style.

Picked-up at Luke's in Plymouth for about eighteen dollars, as part of a mixed twelve-pack. My fifth brew from these guys. This was a decent LAB, would get again.

Look: Cloudy apricot with 3 finger foamy white head. Smells fruity with light hop notes. The taste is grassy with some apricot with hints of hops, The mouthfeel is light which is expected for a light beer. Overall this beer surprised me, it is low cal but Dogfish squeezed every ounce of flavor out of the light brew. I appreciate the effort of Dogfish to try their hand at a light IPA. This is my go to brew when I want to back off the high alcohol content.

A low calorie IPA that actually tastes good, what a concept. This surprised me at how light and crisp the feel was while still managing to maintain its taste. The monk fruit adds a different flavor that works well with the session IPA flavor profile.

12oz. can served in a shaker pint. Pours a dull orange with a loose, quarter-inch, off-white head and a slight haze to the clarity. Nose reveals hints of citrus, herbal notes and a biscuit malt. Taste consistent with nose - less citrus presence. Everything more or less coalesces together. Mouthfeel is light in body with an assertive carbonation that leaves a residual prickle across the tongue. Overall, a pretty drinkable session IPA.

This beer is marketed as a low ABV / low calorie IPA. I have adjusted how I approach such beers. I don't compare them with 6+% IPAs, since even though they are entered here as the same style, in reality, they are not the same style. Therefore, I now approach them on their merits as a hoppy low ABV ale. I expect them to be thinner, less malty, and hence less well balanced, but I also expect them to be enjoyable as, for example, a summer crusher.

Strong aroma; citrus, melon, mango. A hoppy invitation.

It has an orange slightly hazy appearance, well carbonated, topped with a tall airy white head, recedes to 1/4 inch fairly rapidly, but has good retention after that.

The initial taste presents a slightly bitter, slightly harsh orange rind flavor followed by a mild melon-like taste. The flavors tend to munge together rather than remaining distinct, resulting in a not unpleasant but muddled taste. After the initial hit of mild bitterness, it mellows out. The finish is fruity, mild, and on the dry side. The aftertaste is pleasant but mostly unremarkable. Half way through, though, a bit of sharpness builds in the aftertaste.

Decent body, especially for a low ABV IPA.

Overall, OK. Easy enough to drink, decent, if muddled, flavors, and a dry finish. Still, though, I wouldn't put this at the top of my low-cal crusher list.

12 oz can with a May 2021 BB date stamped on the bottom.
Appearance. Clear, golden-amber colored body with an excellent white head that leaves a full coat of lacing on the glass when tipped.

This has the strength of hops in the aroma, and nearly has the strength of flavor, of a regular IPA. As such, it is an exceptional low calorie/low ABV beer.

(12 oz can, NOV 2021; gifted a cold single... poured into a 14 oz mug)

L: mildly-hazy, yellow-honey hued liquid; foam is a loose, frothy sponge, with little stability... thin, spitty collar; little lace

S: papaya, orange, lemon, menthol, lightly-toasted muffin... potent fragrances, if a bit muddy, indistinct

T: lemon peel, white grapefruit (especially in its bitter finish), lightly-toasted cereal (emerging by 4th or 5th sip in)... bitter grapefruit, herbal (hemp) cereal... bitterness pings and lingers through aftertaste, not peppery-spicy, but more herbal-leafy

F: resinous silky texture; light-bodied, but with a plush skin, and oily legs in the finish... its hop pop and the stealth dry cut enlivens the palate, stoking a mellow, fiery warmth

O: skeptical at first, but the hop flavor/expression is relatively booming here... dry, but not thin... tepid yet beckoning introduction; it had me wanting another well before the end (1801)

Nice orangish yellow with a soft cap of white head. The nose has a lot of fruit notes - orange, grapefruit, pineapple. The flavor is identical to the nose with a light bitterness to round it out. The big detractor for me on this one is the level of carbonation. Too crisp. I felt like the over the top carbonation took the flavors right off my palate.

Overall, a good beer and likely one of the best options for low calorie beer.
