Shared with Strykzone of Facebook Chat. This poured a rich amber color with a good sized white head and and very good lacing. Nose of citrus and pine. Medium body. The favor was big on hops, with a lot of citrus and floral hops. Lots of bitterness that continued into the finish. I suppose there are malts in there somewhere but this was really hop forward.

16 ounce can from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This was coppery with some haze. A big fluffy head that left clingy lacing. A light aroma of citrus. The flavor brought bitterness and hops of citrus and floral notes. This was definitely hop heavy and could have used a little more malts for better balance. A nice beer.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Herbal/grassy, fruity (apricot) aroma. Mild hop flavor; herbal with orange-y fruit. Light-colored caramel malt flavor; a little too much of it. A little bready flavor. Moderate but harsh bitter aftertaste.

500ml can from douglass88. Slightly pale and mostly clear orange gold with a generous white head. Some grass, mild citrus hops, decent malt. Moderate carbonation and body, decent hopiness and flavour especially considering the low abv (and would make this easy to drink one or two of in the summer on a porch), bitter with a bit of fruity sweetness, becomes dry with a pleasant but simple finish.

Pint at Frankie D’s. Really cloudy pour, no head. Aroma is muted but suggests som decent citrus could occur in the flavor. There’s some American hoppiness going on, but it’s more like a middle of the road APA. Finish is juicy like grapefruit and tangerine. It aight.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Decent IPA aroma and flavor. This was tasty and a light 4% IPA it has the goods for a light alcohol beer.

Had this in Park City Utah at the Canyons. Draft pour. Golden color with no head, maybe cuz it was in a plastic cup. Taste was grassy with lemon. Hops was noticeable but no over powering. Very crisp taste and refreshing. Mouthfeel was thin, but I didn’t mind. I thought it was a good beer

Pours yellow-gold with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit and floral. Taste of grapefruit, resin, caramel, and a hint of tropical fruit. Mild bitter finish. Palate is disappointingly thin, though not surprising for 4%. Overall the mouthfeel is the biggest downside to this beer and I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of hop flavor. Also like the 16 oz can.

Tap at the brewpub-pours lite orange with a small fizzy white head. nose of lite faint hops, cereal and some lite diacytl. wow, not much going on here due to the low abv. I hope these breweries learn from those that are doing low abv ipas now and change their recipe. Lite floral and pine hop flavors with not much else-watery body with lite fruity finish. nothing too special here.
