4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It is, by far, the best low alcohol IPA I have tasted. Seems most of the low alcohol (below 6%) IPA’s lack taste and aroma, but this one tastes and smells like a REAL IPA. I will definitely buy some of this and use it as a staple.

(En fût au Draft Republic): Grosses agrumes roses et verdure fraiche dans une présence en bouche super juteuse. L’amertume est râpeuse et adéquatement asséchante pour une buvabilité exemplaire.

Bottle. Drank after a hard days work outside in 105 degree heat. My brain is totally fried, but this beer sure hits the spot and starts the recovery process. I get mildly bitter grapefruit in both the nose and the taste. Light palate, easy finish. Decent Session ale. Me like.

Aroma is lemon grass, pineapple, straw. Fruity foresty citrusy hop forward aroma and taste, unsweet lean pale malts, clean and sessional. Its a very good example of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy amber color, dull hue, with small head. Nice aroma of resiny hops. Dry mouthfeel, expectedly weak, the malt has a bit too much cereal character (think of Non-Alcohol type of thing), strong bitterness, good hop resin presence, only light hop fruitiness, a bit astringent in the end.
It seems unfresh.

Type: 22-oz. bottle
Glass: Manzanita pint glass
From: Costco in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: March 29, 2015
Consumed: March 31, 2015
Poured a golden, pale, clear color with two fingers of off-white, frothy head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom, reminding me of a snow globe. Below average wet spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. Average retention. (Sight - 3.88)
Smelled sharp pine, grapefruit, Citra, Cascade, lime, floral, mango, tropical, caramel, light nectarine blossom and lemon zest. (Smell - 4.25)
Taste wasn’t nearly as good as the nose. Maltier as well. Got caramel, Cascade, Citra, floral, pine and earthy grapefruit rind. (Taste - 3.75)
Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Lively-to-average carbonation. Abrupt finish. Crisp and refreshing. (Feel - 3.75)
This was OK for a session IPA and not a bad pickup for $3.79. Thank you Costco. (Overall - 3.75)
