Great example of a low ABV ipa that is packed with flavor. Hoppy, balanced, clear, clean finish. Got a growler to go!

Poured on tap a clear golden yellow under a half-inch thick white head which leaves spots of lace. Aroma is floral, orange citrus, fruity, stone fruit (peaches). Flavor is malt balance with citrus and pine notes. Semi-medium body and semi-moderate carbonation. Crisp, dry and somewhat bitter finish. Easy drinking and flavorful.
