This is the most flavorful beer I've ever had that's less than 5% alcohol. The hops really come through here- easily drinkable but enjoyable. Wish I had discovered this during the summer!

The grapefruit flavors drip out of this one. All the hops of a DIPA but in a...errr.... 1/2IPA? A bit of necessary loss of points on palate and overall due to the lack of alcohol, but hard to bash someone for what they are going for. A great use of hops gets them to this score. Their marketing is true, yet...do we need a craft beer for the MGD65 market? Hell, I dunno, tasty ass hops!

Draft at Capone’s. Pours hazy dull gold with white head that laces well. Nose is big floral hops, Saazy, with some spicy and fruity notes. Tasted hoppy, floral, with finishing spicy and Saazy hops and peppery crispness.

My new fav daily drinker. Fantastic aroma and great taste. Light and refreshing without being bland. Malt backbone is mostly lost in glorious dank aroma and citrus flavor. Sure hope they keep this on for a year rounder.

Smells like pine, marijuana, and some sweet. Pours a somewhat pretty bright yellow. Flavours are pine needles...thin mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Jackson Avenue Pub in Naperville, IL. Pours a crystal clear, straw-gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is very fruity with a nice juicy citrus hop element plus a grainy pale malting. Grassy with some floral tropical fruits, a bit of a lemon-zest, a light earth, and a touch of toast. Flavor isn’t as vibrant and fruity, but still really nice. Citrusy florals with some grass and a light earthiness, a few tropical fruits, and a nice bitterness throughout. Grainy pale malt backing with a touch of toast before this finishes crisp, clean, moderately bitter, and dry before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Light body and a crisp, moderate carbonation. Overall, a really solid, flavorful IPA. Lots of fruity hops and a firm bitterness, but really crisp, light, and refreshing thanks to the lower ABV%. Good one.

9 Oct 2012, bottle. pale yellow, clear, occasional bubbles. fantastic grapefruit aroma; slightly sweet, big citrus, doesn’t smell too aggressive. thin body and moderately fizzy. taste is pine and mild grapefruit rind. very crisp, no lingering bitterness. i’m having a hard time thinking of this as an ipa. it is very crisp and bitter but lacks alcohol and body. still, very good.
