3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from Malt & Vine. Pours translucent gold with a foamy white head. Aroma of green grassy/herby hops. Med + body. Flavor is herb/grass over pale malt. This is a light beer, carbohydrate wise, but pretty heavy on the hop. Which seems to be a mix of pine and citrus after thinking about it. No real hop burn, but there seems to be a hoppy oiliness in the mouth. It cannot be, but I’ll posit this is as hoppy as many DIPAs and more than many IPAs. Amazing for such a low ABV ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma has moderate cracker and pale malt background. Moderate hop character with citrus and tropical fruit being most dominant but with a fairly strong resin note as well.
Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a big white head that has moderately good retention. Moderately high lacing and faint legs.
Flavor starts with slightly sweet cracker and biscuit notes. Moderate hop notes with citrus and tropical fruit well balanced. Moderately strong pine resin note. Bitterness is also moderately strong. Finish has another cracker malt resurgence along with a light lingering resiny bitterness. Faint fruitiness in finish as well.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Faint astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall a very enjoyable pale ale. Nice light malt character with a good assertive bitterness. The hop character could be a bit brighter but this balance allows for a good make character which is more to style. I could definitely drink a few of these.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from can to tulip. Clear with a pale golden color. Thick white head diminishing to a thin layer within a few minutes. Passion fruit and grapefruit aroma. Fruit and light malt carries through sip. Finishes with a sharp bitterness and biscuit. Leaves me wanting another sip. Great sessionable beer.
