COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes you want a beer, then you realize how much crap you need to do before you call it a day. This is it. Nicely dosed with Big, Round Hop Flavors and a Toasty Malt Foundation to satisfy your every need. But it still lets you stay in the game to do what needs to be done. Yup.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2012
On tap at Tylerís, Durham. Great to see so many quality craft breweries putting thought into well-balanced session beers, and this is one of the finer examples. Nice light orange pour, billowy carbonation. Dry hops and citrus in the nose, giving an impression of overall crispness. Certainly borne out in the light, elegant flavors. Plenty of depth and complexity though, all the traits of an IPA at sub-5%. Kudos.

Pours a light, amber color with a white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops. Flavor is earthy as well with the virus and pine. Overall pretty good.

On draft at Fatheads. Poured clear gold with thin white head. Floral, grassy nose. Sharp citrus hop bite with piney notes. Thin to medium bodied. Well done.

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2012
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Straw color with a medium, white, frothy head; head dissipates into a ring quickly but leaves plenty of lacing, and head is revived easily with swirling. Aroma massively grapefruit and pine. Flavor... boy, this is an odd one... taste is instant pineapple; then, grapefruit, pine, lemon, oregano, possibly juniper. Palate medium-thin but quite frothy in the mouth. Surprising amount of flavor for the low level of alcohol. Maybe a few more of these and I could rate this higher a point or two higher, but itís just so unusual that Iím struggling with that. That said, a beer like this at 4.65% abv really makes me wonder why Bud Light exists.

I love everything about this beer. Itís just a flawless, fresh, bottled IPA to consume on a day off, one after another. I love itís ABV. Great mouthfeel. Excellent malt backbone. Tasty, lemony hops. Big Hops. Please make more.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fresh citric hops, almost tropical, with floral and piney notes, and a light pale malty base. Good stuff.
