COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve created an easy to drink crisp, hoppy ale that is truly pale in color without sacrificing the hop character you expect in an IPA. To make a delicious "sessionable" beer, we selected citrusy centennial hops and an experimental variety from the Northwest U.S.. Look for this unique hop character balanced by the backgroudn nuttiness of Maris Otter malt. Not too filling, not overbearing-just laid back and drinkable!

marcus (6586) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Pours clear golden with a clinging off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a thin pale malt flavor with light hop bitterness. Yes, it’s an ok session beer.

HighlanderOne (1016) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Poured from bottle. Strange vegetable aroma (boiled cauliflower?). Clear gold with barely a head. Flavors, well, hand soap and metal cleaner. Experimental hops? I believe this experiment failed. This is awful and I need to dump it out now.

Spicy hop notes commandeer this thin IPA entry. Good flavorful summer quencher but lacking malt backbone. Nice light amber hue.

cheap (4109) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Smell is a little metalic. Nice head on a clear pale lager lookin thing. Taste is up there as far as hoppiness goes but the mild alky attitude makes it easiier to like for this lager lover. Good smooth co2 makes this easier to enjoy. Yes, hop bitterness builds thru the session and continues to medim IPA levels. Very acceptable beer that cariies true ipa flavor without the magnification factor on the attitude. I probably would not clasify this as a terribly on style ipa.

BucannonXC5 (883) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. About two fingers of head. Color was honey caramel golden, a bit like apple juice or dehydrated urine. Bubbly gray-white lacing that pleasantly lasted for a bit. Foamy gray lacing on the sides that lasted throughout. Smelled spicy piny hops. Kind of a lemon-lime whiff with a spice in there (maybe pepper?) Bitter on the nose. Good smell overall. Still that piny taste in the hops, but more watery than I thought it would be. Also some honey in there. Lime citrus hops as well. Very bitter finish. Medium body. Thin, watery texture. Below average carbonation. Long lasting bitter finish. Started out well but the taste and feel were the weak points. The Rye IPA that I had in the 12-pack of summers was much better.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a golden yellow with little to no head. The aroma does have a floral hoppy note with bits of citrus in it as promised. But it was also rather grainy. The body is a little under medium. The taste brings out a solid hop bitterness but it ends clean.

12 oz. bottle. Pours light gold with thin white head. With my recent move towards high alcohol ales, I was somewhat surprised by how drinkable (i.e. chuggable) this was. After reading the bottle’s description and seeing the alcohol content (4.7), this makes sense. IPA not usually my beer of choice with seafood, but the citrusy notes and drinkability made this one perfect.

Bottle. I’m glad to see that this style of low ABV "IPA" is becoming more standard, and I’m eager to see how this one pans out. Pours a clear light gold with a decent head that dies to a thin film in short order. Aromas are weakly hoppy... soap, lemony citrus and a little resin are what I’m picking up... almost like Pine Sol or something. Flavor is weakly malty with a decent, but not overpowering hops presence that fits in line with expectations from the aromas... lemon, pine and soap. Not a hop tea, but not exactly earth-shattering. Still, I could sip down a few of these and still get the lawn done.
