Bottle, a few months old. I’ve had this many times, and consider it the paradigmatic session IPA. It has great balance, nice bitterness and some light malt sweetness. Dominant notes are grapefruit, pine, caramel, and grass. A lovely beer with full flavor and abv under 5%. Best consumed in quantity during the day.

bigcat03 (263) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle poured into a New Belgium globe glass. A nice clear amber color with a small off white head. A little bit of everything in the aroma. Pine, grass, grapefruit...all there. Everything is there in the taste as well along with a little malty sweetness. Aftertaste doesn’t linger. Lively carbonation that doesn’t sting and a good medium body. GREAT beer that you can drink a few of and not even think twice!

Pours a nice deep golden color. Aromas of hops/citrus. Medium hop flavors with malts and a dry finish. Easy drinking, would be a good session beer.

Moolesen (477) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2016
Draught at BJ’s in Dublin Ohio, US. Dark golden with a white head. Heap of fresh hops in the aroma, pine and grapefruit. A bit thin/watery in the mouth but with plenty of hop flavours. Short finish.

Bottle. About the best bottled beer I have tried. Extremely tasty, full-bodied IPA, with only 4.7 ABV. Bravo!

beer_rookie (402) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Pours a honey gold color. Somewhat cloudy with sediment hanging around in there. Nice white head. Okay retention, okay lacing. Pretty well carbonated.

Aroma is not as bold as a regular IPA, but still nice. Earthy hops, pine, orange zest. I smell yeast, and caramel. Caramel is more prevalent in this than most IPAs.

Taste is well balanced between sweet and bitter. It’s about as balanced as you’ll get in an IPA. All the aroma qualities come out in the taste. Good flavor for session IPA.

Mouthfeel is medium light. There’s lots of flavor in this. I would guess the heavy carbonation is what does this. It’s very active in carbonation on the tongue. This is not only sessionable, but sustainable. Man, I could probably drink a gallon of this without realizing it. Finishes slightly orange zest bitter.

Overall, this is mighty fine. After a hard day at my soul sucking job, this is a great way to unwind. Sure, you might say it’s needs higher ABV...nah...this is good just like it is. Yes, I would drink it again. Yes, I would buy it again, and yes, I would recommend it.

BlackHaddock (6321) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Draft pint in The Duke, Walthamstow on 24th April 2016. Slight haze to the orange pour with a fading off-white head. Nice balance to the hop centric brew with enough malts to stop the beer being too bitter. Liked it.
