We’re diggin’ the trend of the lighter hopped IPAs coming out so v.15 of the 4D follows in those footsteps. Visually the beer looks much lighter in flavor so it is somewhat deceiving when it gives you a nice little hop tap to the palate. We called it Trading Places keeping with the 80’s pop culture theme and the concept of the hoppier taste Trading Places with the lighter colored beer. Plus, we just love that movie. Light sunshiny yellow with just a tint of orange, Trading Places will signal your taste buds that you’re in for a lighter bodied pounder. Aromatically you are warned there is more to this beer. Bright citrus orange blends with fleshy stone fruit such as peach and mango. In the distance is a hint of muscadine. On the palate you instantly realize this is no palate washer. Bitterness makes way for the spicy rye note all wrapped up in a medium bodied blast of hop goodness.

On tap at Taco Mac while watching some basketball. Crisp clean drink with a light yellow color. White head. Grassy and light citrus hop flavors and aromas. Good amount of hops while still staying balanced.

Golden color with a white head. Aroma is faint citrus and pine. The flavor is slightly bitter with mostly lemon flavors. Mild flavor going on here. Nothing big and bold here but tastes good nonetheless. Overall good session stuff.

Sample in a flight at Ale Yeah! Pours a light orange, with a small, beige head. The aroma is oranges, pear, grapefruit, and white bread. Sweet, with a mild hop bitterness. Light to medium body, thick, and sticky, with a hoppy, bitter finish. Overall, this is a nice, citrusy, drinkable IPA. Not bad!

Pours a clear, bubbly straw yellow with an OK eggshell head. Not impressive, but this is just square one. Aroma is hoppy and resiny with a fruity hint, not strong but appealing. Flavor, happily, is bolder than the aroma, hoppy and resiny with citrus and peach hints. Texture is quite fizzy but a tad wan. OK, not their best version of Deep^4, but pleasing nonetheless.
