From zombier. In Duvel glass. Playing Bardbarian last night. Nice surprise. Very seasonable ipa. Nearly no alcohol and all the aroma and nice bitterness of a good IPA. To drink all day

I had this on-tap at the brewpub in Bellaire. Served in a sample glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear light amber color with a layer of fluffy white head and some mild lacing.

Smell: Really great. A mild malt sweetness but juicy citrus hops are the star here. Reminds me of grapefruit.

Taste: Follows mostly from the smell. Some grain but the hops are the star. Citrus peel, grapefruit, and a bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This reminds me of some of the better west coast pale ales. Wonderful hop profile and easy to drink. I'd love to get my hands on more of this.

A - Pours a murky gold, almost copper with a one finger slightly off-white head. Left good lacing.

S - Pine resin and grapefruit are plentyful on this nose, with a large amount of papaya and mango.

T - Pretty much all pine resin in this department. I'm not complaining, it's quite tasting but lacking.

M - The body is pretty light with light carbonation.

O -Overall, This is more of a " Light IPA " than a Pale Ale. At 3.7%, this is great for casual drinking or a night of reviewing in which you don't want to get too hammered in between beers and you don't want to drink anything shitty as a palate washer. The flavor could have been deeper, but that's about my only real problem with it.

Pours a slightly murky yellow cream, looks good! Smells good, tropical fruit but little or now citrus and actually some perceived phenolic alcohols, but just a bit. A subtle one on the nose, but the taste is low on the malt, and bitter, and fresh out of the bag hops, and dry and fizzy and just right at the right temp....in the 50's for sure!

Dumped the bottle into a tulip glass, it has a glowing saturated orange color with a light haze to it. Some foam at first, about a fingers width that settled quickly to a sticky ring around the edges.

Pungent citrus nose, orange and nectarine, lime zest. Some grainy pale malt behind that, that carries into the taste especially. As it sits, the citrus seems to ebb away, exposing the rawness of barley and cereal grains. Flavor seems equally balanced between the citrusy grapefruit hop notes and grainy pale malt, with some botanical grassiness in the middle. Very light and refreshing feel, strikingly similar to local favorite Daisy Cutter in fact, just more citrus forward (a la Tasty Waves, lol). Super quenching and drinkable, would go through a case easily.

Thanks Justin for the trade...
