Is insanely dry hopped with Centennial Hops. This pale copper colored ale has a flowery hop aroma and a bold hop bitterness. Hop Heads Only Please!

Not bad for a session IPA. Great appearance with a large fluffy frothy long lasting head, and some lace. Color is a slightly hazy honey amber. Aroma is hops, pine resin, caramel. Flavor’s like nose, Bittersweet up front with a bit of carbonic tang, some off flavors in the finish. Body is a tad thin and carbonation a bit light. I recall having this before and it being better.

mile (3830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 14, 2015
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and some tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel - light bread and some tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, some caramel - light bread and tropical fruitiness, some piney - grapefruit hoppyness. Sweetish IPA with notes of bread - could use more bitterness (and less caramel).

I have always understood that an IPA was, by definition, a higher ABV brew meant originally to withstand lengthy travel to India by ship, but here we have a low ABV ale calling itself an IPA. Odd. Never before seen this brand here in Massachusetts, so I gave it a shot. Poured into an English pub glass, it smells good, retains a head, tastes good enough and has a nice hoppy finish. Decent, but undistinguished APA. Might be tempted to buy this again if it was cheaper.

On tap at Dan's. The pour is a golden color with a decent white head and some great clingy lace. The aroma is big on the citrus and floral hops. Tropical fruits come through on the back end and the smell is just great. The flavor is a bit more malt forward than the nose would lead on. The floral hops and tropical fruits are definitely relaxed. The mouth feel is a touch thin with a good carbonation and a quick fading, albeit mildly bitter hop finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Distinctively an IPA but unlike any other. Lighter body, milder hoppiness, more rounded fruitiness. Highly drinkable and quite refreshing. Kudos for the relatively low abv.

Pours a copperish/rich gold color with a minimal head leaving some lacing. Great aroma of well blended citrus and piney hops, sweet malt and a hint of biscuit. I enjoy how the hop combination compliments the light caramel malts. It's not a huge IPA but has more body than a typical IPA.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours a copper amber color with a thin off-white head. Floral hops, pine needles, tree sap, caramel on the nose. Taste is fairly well-balanced with the malts and hops working together. Low ABV but nice resiny flavor.

MrHangover (4019) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear darker amber beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is rahter floral, some herbal, leafy hops, grassy notes and a malty touch. Flavor is mildly bitter for IPA standards, yet full bodied and hoppy. Guessing it must be an older bottle, most hop characters have faded a bit, but it’s stlll nice and hoppy and certainly enjoyable. Decent.
