Growler thanks to my pal Vince. Dry, crisp, and chuggable. A hint of citrus followed by a torrent of hoppy, grassy, bitterness. Excellent beer.

Aroma: lightly fruity and hoppy; Appearance: clear light amber pour with thin white head; not much carbonation; Taste: follows nose; definitely not aggressively hoppy or bitter; smooth; Palate: medium body with long, slightly bitter finish; Overall: pretty good; carbonation may have been affected by brief stay in freezer; would definitely get again if looking for a session IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I am always a little leery about this type of beer: the low alcohol IPA. Why? Because if I want these lower levels of alcohol, and want to have a session, I will drink something more delicious and quaffable, like a good German Pils. IPAs are for brief sessions, or one-offs, and are better for the one or two beer buzz. Nonetheless, this is a fine tasting brew and I can see why it is so highly regarded. Leery or not, I would buy another 6 of these.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Past the best by date but still good. Weren’t IPAs originally brewed for long ocean voyages? Fairly bitter and dry on the palate, with flavors of leafy green vegetables and a little caramel. A bit astringent but still smooth. The aroma is dank and a little weird, with touches of cheese and fruit. I enjoyed the label a lot, with its picture of a cake covered with hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops with light earthy notes is enticing. Taste is dominated by citrusy notes with some earthy flavours with more bitterness then I was expecting. Body is full for style with good carbonation. Good but bitterness was more apparent than I was expecting.
