hopscotch (9082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Draft... Pours clear and yellow with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Good retention. Huge, wonderful aroma of earthy, cat-pissy simcoe and fruity citra hops. Light-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor furnishes citrusy, mildly earthy bitterness. Crisp, zippy, refreshing finish. Excellent session IPA. A joy to drink it fresh and from the tap.

Foxbush (1264) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2014
12 oz bottle at Christina’s in Strasburg,VA The IPA poured a hazy gold with a white head in the glass jar. The ale was keep too cold to get much aroma. It pours a deep gold color with a fluffy off white head. The taste was clean and dry with some resin. The lower alcohol is easy too drink but lacks some of the character that IPAs have. The citra hops offers some citrus to taste. The light body ale had average carbonation. The dry finish had some resin at the end. This is a lightweight IPA.

mattern33 (99) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Very light clear color. Nice, although mild, initial hop aroma. Very light/mild IPA. Good taste but mild. Minor hop bite on palate nut balanced to light flavor. Overall a solid light IPA.

Theydon_Bois (8276) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle at home, from Wegmans Downington, 04/12/13. Lightly hazed golden orange with a good sized off white head that retains well. Nose is earthy hops, pithy citrics, toasted malt, bitter orange, straw. Taste comprises dankish hops, orange pith, toasted malt, light caramel notes, citric tang, soft bread dough. Light to medium in bodiment, fine carbonation, crisp clean climax with gentle grassy hop bitterness. Easy drinking sessionable affair if this beer had been brewed and added in England this would be another golden blonde for the stat page !

keepersj12 (2679) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hershiser2 (1210) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours golden-amber with a small head. Smells of grapefruit, floral hops... tastes like the smell of urinal cakes. Floral... air-freshener-like.

boxofrane (2093) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle from Mari’s. Pours clear orange with a small white head, light carbonation. The aroma is a blend of orange, pine, and maybe a little grapefruit. The taste has a light bitterness, a bit of an earthiness, orange juice. Pretty good.

nuplastikk (4332) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2013
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.

MadRobin (1893) - Silver Spring, USA - SEP 30, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
