3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12/31/12. Happy New Year! 11.2oz bottle from Grassroots Natural Market. The label says India Pale Ale 2.7%. Woot!
Mostly clear golden pour with a fizzy off-white head that sticks pretty well and laces in sloppy sheets. Fresh green hop aroma with some pale malts and corniness in there. Lightly bitter, lightly sour/acidic hop flavor with a lingering pale malt presence and even more lingering dry bitterness. Goes down easy. Tasty.

Pours gold with a nice white head. A little sediment. Nice piney hops on the nose. Uncomplex, quite bitter. Fizzy mouthfeel, a little watery. Short finish. Never had a low alcohol beer, might as well make a US craft my first. Not a bad pale ale.
