Thanks to iNBe. Now, I’m all about full flavored low ABV beers. And this was a good attempt but the balance and flavor combinations were a bit odd keeping this from being rated higher. Serving: Bottle

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a clear gold with a large mostly-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of breadyy malt, pepper, a bit of paper and citrusy hops. Very slightly watery flavour is hoppy first followed by bready malt and a moderate bitter finish -- simple but good. Average bodied. A good, not great, Session Ale -- but that abv is too high to be a true Session.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted on tap at Taháa Twisted Tiki Bar in Manchester Grove. It poured a slightly hazy golden amber colour. Lots of citrusy, fruity, black peppery hops, but an odd farmhouse-ish, composty aspect reminiscent of saison or berlinner weiss. Since no one else is reporting those flavours, I suspect a minor line infection. Under the circumstances, it was okay but not a very pleasantly balanced beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Bright golden color with a decent fluffy white head.
Pleasant fruity aromas with tropical notes and some sweet malt.
Sweetish toffee flavors, mellow fruitiness, clean light caramel malt, medium bitterness.
Light-med body, effervescent, clean and lacks some oomph. OK.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light copper/golden color with a small fluffy head. The aroma smells odd light pine, sweet malt, and a touch of oranges. Light, crisp drinker, with some light hop flavor but significant malt. Not bad but seems like a regular pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle in Cedar Rapids. A decent IPA. It has all the classic flavors with a very bitter finish. I find the hops and bitterness a bit unbalanced, though--a rough edge to the beer.
