3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
3.8% 605 yen can from Tsutaya Saketen drunk at the airport. It pours a deep gold with a thick fluffy off white head. The nose is a great hoppy pine. Medium bodied with a smooth chewy mouthfeel. The taste is green piney hops though this has been in my bag all day so I doubt I am at the correct serving temperature. For those who like piney hop notes this is the perfect session IPA, myself I prefer fruity hops. Still a damn good session IPA with a satisfying body and good flavor not an easy trick for low ABV beers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden brown from the can with fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is great hoppy citrus notes that go into nice malty backbone. Taste follows, way more than the 3.8% abv would make you assume. Very nice beer, definitely will be drinking a few of these.

Shared 12 oz. can donated to our tasting session by the local Wirtz rep, poured to snifters, showing a clear, amber hue, with a presentable, but short lived layer of off white, head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was dank, expressive greenery, herbs, and a touch of citrus. Light bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was similar notes as the aroma, added a bit of pine, and expressed more of the full flavored, dark side of the hops. Quite surprising for such a low abv., session brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from Premier Gourmet. Pours a clear orange colour with modest-sized off-white head. Aroma has big resiny hops, some floral and fruity character as well as some graininess. Flavour is solid resin, some floral hops, a little citrus and an underlying graininess. Decent bitterness in finish. Good one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out a nice copper color with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet citrusy hops, light floral notes, some tropical fruit and light cracker. Taste is complex for so low Abv. Nice citrus, tropical fruit light cracker malts. Damn lots of flavor and super crushable

Can. Piney nose, thick floral notes, too. Medium straw color, thick head. Pine, mixed tropical fruit. goes to moderate bitterness, and has some hop tracks in final. Thin-medium body. Light enough and tasty enough, as a session beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small, tight, white head, good lace and a clear, copper hued appearence. Nice flowery, grassy nose with light fruity citrusy notes. Nice mouthfeel, good carbonation, lightly oily and a hint resiny, clean and light. Dry, pale malts, nicely biscuity and freshly grainy, slightly juicy hops and a clean dry finish with a balanced bitterness. Cool little quaffer! Pretty tasty, clean aromas, nice mouth feel for such a small brew. Cans from statelineliquors.
