COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pygmy Owl is an IPA with full fledged hop taste and aroma, yet is remarkably low in alcohol. In fact, it clocks in at only 4.2% ABV. An IPA with full flavor, but without the harsh bitterness. And the best part, you can have more than one without getting that drunkied up feeling.
Availability: February-April

Really light IPA....pretty good though. Really light on alcohol content as well. Worth a try though.

pale yellow, no foam at all left after short minute. Aroma is leathery, not pleasant. Light bitter taste, barley aftertaste. (Houston 201408)

Gerbeer (1721) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear yellowish straw color with very little head. Aromas of paper, pork rinds, pineapple and straw. Light flavors of grass, melons, pineapple and cardboard. A good attempt, but seems like a good IPA cut with an industrial lager.

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 26, 2014
A dirty golden color with a froth white head. Balanced hop and malt aromas. Smooth hops that get balanced by the malt and then rinse clean. Very refreshing and smooth great body that rinses surprisingly clean.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2014
It’s getting harder and harder to find a new (to me) IPA on the shelves during this Session IPA fad-craze-whatever now that the weather is warm. T^his one pours a pale yellow body filled with bubbles, all under a skinny near film of a head. It smells purdy, grapefruit and lemon zest with a faint pale malt sweetness. The body seems a bit watery. It tastes lemony with a weak malt sweetness and really is lacking in bitterness until the finish, and then it’s fairly faint. This had a promising beginning, but kind of fizzled out.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from Metro Liquor, Victoria
Hazy blond color with small head. Both aroma and flavor have a paper character; the body is thin; it has a light citrusy touch, and correct bitterness.
Boring.

cards04 (1706) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
Average. Pours a boring yellow. Some fruity aromas and flavors. Some paper flavors as well. Pretty boring session.

Cavie (3780) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a light head. Aroma is citrusy hops, spicy pine, fresh notes. Flavor is dry hops. Light thin mouthfeel. Dry hops, bitter finish. Plain.

Itty Bitty in alcohol, perhaps, but not in taste with pine and citrus dominating. Light and refreshing.
