COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our newest beers, it is very unique. It’s light alcohol content makes it very drinkable, but the hops pack a wallop. Brewed with four different malt, plus Herkules, Magnum, Centennial, and Cascade, and more Herkules go into this one.

Light haze on this gold - amber beer. Little white head. Light palate, crispy and semi dry. Too much pale malt here but decent fresh grapefruit. Semi dry finish. Not bad.

Draft sample at MBGWF12. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and complex malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. This soft beer met my expectations.

A blonde IPA with a thin white head. In aroma, a sulfur malt with grassy hops, grainy. In mouth, a smooth British hops, grassy, not bad, but nothing special. Can at Mondial 2012, June 9 2012.

pivnizub (8888) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle: Dry grassy to metallic hoppy nose, golden coloured, a bit unclear, loose white head; dry tart and bitter flavour, very light bodied; short and grassy finish. A very monotonous brew…

DocLock (7876) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Can from Blue Dog. Pours hazy canary/straw colored with 1-finger splotchy off-white head. Nose is pretty hoppy, resiny, tannic, with pale malt. Tastes of astringent resiny hops, a bit malt light, with a piney acidic finish.

shrubber85 (7646) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Can. Light orange and citrus peel aroma. Golden yellow with giant head. Lemon, stale barley malt and mild orange peel hops flavor. Okay but definitely below the average IPA. Never really considered 5.5% to be ’light’ alcohol either.

12 bottle, just under 3 months old, hopefully it holds up. It is rather low in abv for an ipa. It pours a hazy amber with a foamy white head. The smell is mostly citrus. Orange is a prominent scent. Maybe some peach in there too. Light fruits, subtle malt sweetness. The flavor is decent. It isn’t too sweet which is nice. It also isn’t too massively hopped. With .5% less abv it does have a better flavor than Founders All Day IPA. It is not too sweet, but still nectary. Plenty of fruits and citru, medium to low bitterness in the finish. It looks like the cans are brewed at Latrobe. The bottled version is fine, it looks like the canned version has some issues.

12oz bottle, shared by robotopera. Date notched is 1/12. Hazy amber color. Good citrus hops, caramel malts. Little off-white head leaves subtle, mellow flavor, but it’s good and drinkable. Lighter carbonation, clean finish. Alicia calls it "watery". Light bitter. Light pine, grapefruit. Would revisit with a fresher sample.
