Draft at Reno’s East (from notes). Really light and starts off with some nice citrus and a little pine. The flavors all quickly fade though. Really good for a super low ABV session beer.

Cloudy golden pour with a huge head. Crazy carbonation here, may be a problem bottle. Aroma is full of passion fruit and other tropical fruits. Insane carbonation. Mouth stings due to this. Taste is really light. Hints of citrus and a little passion fruit. Really dry finish. I just can’t get over the insane carbonation here. Kind of ruined this beer for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, slightly hazy golden color with medium white head. Aroma is citrus with some slighy floral notes. Taste is hoppy, pineapple and some faint resin notes, just enough malt for it not being very unbalanced. Light palate, dry and refreshing with a mild bitter aftertaste. Extremely enjoyable for such a low abv, definitely one to keep on stock for the summer.

Draft at Rezervoir Lounge - pours a light gold with a slight haziness . Great citrusy pine aroma . Taste is a little thin even for a session IPA . Kind of bready on the finish . Ok I guess .

HopCat in East Lansing. This beer is surprising. Shorts got it right with this 3.5% session. The appearance is a very light gold, and the aroma is surprisingly deep. A good amount of citrus and a large amount of hops seem present, though I don’t know of this is the case. The taste is just as it smells. A bit citrusy and very hoppy. The finish is dry, but hardly lingers.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a honey color. Medium sized white head. Some lacing. Nice big hoppy grapefruit aroma. Note that at this point I’m pretty excited. Unfortunately the next step is to taste it. Sadly the taste doesn’t live up to the excitement caused by the aroma. I pick up some citrus and pine, but it seems very watery. I get the fact that its got to be hard to make something with such a low ABV, but it really seems watered down. Plenty of respect to Shorts to put out something that you can drink all day without feeling the effects, but it really is just ok. Not able to compete with Founders All Day IPA session ale in taste.

Bottle, pours a hazy orange with white head. Aroma is floral and grassy hops. Taste is grassy and earthy as well, with a decent amount of bitterness. A good amount of taste given the low abv.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy golden orange color with a white head. Aromas of grapefruit, herbal, lemon, pine and grass. Nice and well balanced aromas and taste of grapefruit, herbal, pine, grass, bread, earth, and spiciness. A good bitterness on the finish. Nice session IPA.
