UPDATED: SEP 3, 2015 Easily one of the best session IPA’s/APA’s that I’ve had. Clear, amber. Not sweet but not parched, tasty esters. Got to chatting with Joe Ostaszewski, former FSU footballer about his Saving Justin child obesity crusade, and it seemed rude to take replete notes. Still, very nice. On tap, Brass Tap, Tallahassee Midtown.

can. Golden with one finger head. Very light body with big citrus hops. Some minerally, earthy notes as well. I really dug the crisp hop flavors from this. Medium bitterness.

Un nez splendide aussi puissant que leur ipa. Une charge juteuse plus qu’intéressante, amertume moyenne, croustillance extrême avec un certain sucre résiduel qui disparait totalement au final.

Pours a bright gold with a good-sized off-white head. The aroma is very nice, with some floral and citrus hops that aren’t too overpowering, but are well situated for the style. The taste has the floral and fruity character from the hops, a little bit of bitterness, and a little bit of bready malt. Light to medium-bodied with good carbonation. Not as enjoyable overall as some of the other Ballast Point offerings, but a very nice and sessionable hoppy brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of cirtus, grapefruit, and hops. Very nice aroma for such a low alcohol beer. Poured amber in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Slightly hazy. Lightly sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops, citrus, grapefruit, malt, and slight caramel. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, medium to heavily bitter, hop, grapefruit, malt, and caramel finish. This beer demonstrates that 3.5%ABV does not mean no flavor. I am impressed.

12 oz.can. Clear amber with almost a film of lasting bubbles. Aroma is resin, earthy leaf, orange zest, toasted pecan and a bit of toffee. Flavor is a very nice mix of the same, with a steady drying undercurrent of resin and a bit of white pepper. Body is more light than medium and has a bit too much fizz, but offers a very sessionable dry-leaning balance.

Copper colored beer from a can. Mostly clear with a cream colored head. The smell is malty, caramel, pine, fruit, and good. The taste is pine, bitterness, some sharpness, fruit, good. Good overall tiny bit harsh that leads to a slight off balance.
