3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours a clear orange gold. Fluffy finger of white head. Aroma is citrusy with some notes of resin, lemon, black pepper, skunk, orange. Medium bodied, with notes of biscuit, and a grainy finish. Citrus is less pronounced than on the nose but still present. Overall a nice low-alcohol but full flavored brew that would be nice for lunch on a summer day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serviceable IPA on tap at The Cannery Row. Some European hop, citrus fruity, citra like aroma. Spicy which lends taste at this surprisingly low abv. Little sweetness, this is bitter heavy. Medium bodied. Cloudy yellow with some retained head. Not so drinkable, even after it warmed, but served too cold.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Damn, Lagunitas hits it again with this brew! Served with a nice sized foamy, cream-colored head that slowly settles to a light cover and lots of lace. Color is a clear, pale gold with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is a very pleasing and aromatic blend of hop, malt, caramel, fruit, citrus, with a bit of pine. Flavor’s like nose, sweet/bitter/carbonic tang all perfectly balanced. Body is perhaps a trifle thin, carbonation is great. Finish is like flavor, average length, and superbly drinkable.

A rare lower alcohol IPA in bottle at Stoneyard. Really tasty offering from start to finish. Not as overpowering as some. Pine + tropical notes in the nose. Tropical feel to the palate along with some malty notes. Really nice.

Clear pale golden color, foamy white head. Citrus filled hop aroma, with some tropical fruits and cereal notes. Big hop flavor for a beer of its size. Fruity, apricot flavors with a light grassy bitterness. Nice session beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a golden with almost no head. Aroma is mildly hoppy and not much else. Deffinatly lets you know you are drinking an IPA. Flavor is an even better dose of piney hops. Not much in the way of malt and it’s kinda thin but I guess that’s what keeps the alcohol down. It’s got enough hop bite and you could deffinatly drink this all day.

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Carpool in Herndon, VA.
Clear, sparkling, yellow with a slight chartreuse tinge with medium-sized white head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of mango, tangerine citrus, peach and pineapple, Lovely.
Taste of pineapple, citrus, grapefruit rind and caramel.
Light body and medium carbonation.
Amazingly powerful and complex aroma that is not matched in the taste. Rather thin body, but overall an fine job for a low ABV IPA.
