Awesome, light and perfectly hopped pale ale. This is (currently) my favorite ale they make. I appreciate the flavor and hop profile they were able to achieve with such a low ABV. Reminds me a bit of Levitation.

Not a lot going on here.

Translucent golden color with a soapy head that dissipates rapidly and leaves a little bit of clinging bubbles and minimal lacing.

Smell is very faint with citrus and pine.

Taste is muted with some light citrus and a slight bitter finish.

Feel is watery with medium carbonation.

Overall for a 3.9 ABV pale ale it isn't bad but not something I would revisit unless I was parched and had no other options.

The liquid contained in this can is a tepid tangerine, faded color like an old photo, some what hazy. Capped by a stern, soapy mountain of foam.
Aromas like a memory of a summer night on a foreign beach. faint, pleasant, amorphous. subject to your fanciful whims.
That taste though, that taste is where it steps up into it's own. Soft bready malts rolling deep with some bitter hops rocking citrus rind and braising green bites. One two step, two one step. This thang has moves
The only thing english about this critter is the soft, round feel of it as it crosses your tongue. The hopstep tango keeps any syrupy sweetness at bay but the beer is still unmistakably gentle.

This one speaks to me as if Barbara Stanwyck were my night nurse. Will I have another bite of an orange? Barbara, if you are serving it to me, yes please! This beer is actually nice and light and floral like Grace Kelly’s wedding to that Monaco dude. We are talking quality.

Close your eyes, take a sniff, take a sip, and let this fine beer take you over.

Can from Lúpulo.
Canned roughly 10 days ago.
Look: clear copper. White fluffy head.
Smell: simcoe!
Taste: piney/citrus. Pretty subdued. More flavorful than strong and bitter. Earthy? Some minimal bready biscuit malt balance.
Feel: thin bodied with bittering bite.
Overall: solid session ipa/pale ale Definitely doing it’s best for low abv.

I had this on tap at Moonlight’s brewery.

It’s a session IPA, so think clear and bright golden body, with a hop forward aroma and a thin, thin body. It’s a blessing and a curse of the session IPAs.
