3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice and easy drinking. Lots of flavor for a low ABV brew. Pours hazy yellow with a small head. The aroma is misty sweet malt. The flavor has the sweetness up front then ends with the pine and citrus from the hops. The finish is nicely dry and refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Bowie. Filtered orange-yellow body, respectable creamy off-white head. Big citra hop flavor. The malt bill is solid, maybe a touch thicker than others in the style. Still nails it, solid Citra Pale Ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap 5 oz. sample at DuClaw in Bowie, MD.
Clear, light yellow-amber with an off-white head and good lacing.
Aroma of pine, citrus, caramel, bread and mango.
Taste of pine, orange, caramel, mango, floral hops and bread. The interesting opposition of malt and hops seems not so much like a balance as a tug of war.
Medium body and medium carbonation.

This wasnt a bad low alcohol IPA but i dont really get the fractional bit. Just call it a pale ale and be done with it.
