COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottled; Special - June to August 2013.
Note: Although the bottle is labelled 2.7%, it’s actually 2.8%, same as ther draught.

The goal was to create a beer with flavour, balance and body at only 2.8%, a Quarter IPA, QIPA if you will. Heavily hopped but with low bitterness this beer pops with notes of mango and grapefruit and is the perfect summer beer.

sebletitje (6819) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2014
Bouteille 50cl @ Il Pretesto, Bologna. Dorée, col blanc fin. Arôme est léger houblonné fruité avec pas mal d’agrumes et de pamplemousse arrivant plus sur le devant. Le côté malt demeure léger avec un petit côté de moût. Palais est houblonné, ici aussi assez léger. Fleuri et fruité avec un pamplemousse plus présent et un tropical de mangue arrivant plus discrètement. Pointe de malt cara, léger pâle. A 2.8%, super à boire.

olsvammel (3325) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle from NK food store. Hoppy smell with citrus, mango, some tropical fruits. Similar taste. Nice medium strong bitterness. Very nice low ABV. I don’t even think about the low ABV.

What a great beer, 2nd time I’ve had this in a bottle, I can’t believe it’s only 2.7%. Very hoppy, citrus fruits, very easy to drink (my wife enjoyed a bottle also) Nice American style IPA

Ragnampiza (497) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - OCT 2, 2014
500 ml bottle from Les Vignerons. Light sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with a nice, creamy and persistent off white head. Lovely fresh and intense tropical fruits nose, plenty of hoppiness, some bitter orange peel, very sticky resinous feel as well. If the aroma could indicate a 6+ABV IPA, one little sip is enough to understande the difference. Very watery, thin, feeling almost like bitter and astringent hops extract. But still, plenty of flavour, decent bitterness, lingering fruity and slightly caramel forward aftertaste. Average carbonation, light body, creamy texture. Very good for what it is, but I still can’t find a <3% IPA I really enjoy that much.

Cask conditioned handpump Craft Beer Co EC1 London 28/07/14. A golden coloured beer with a white head. Nice and hoppy although there is a bit of papery thinness I find with such low ABV hoppy beers. Good citrus notes. A bit of lime. If it had more body would be truly excellent.

OMG! What a great session beer. Worth every penny. And I found it at the local grocery store in conservative Sweden. I wish just that more craft breweries would try to make more low alcohol beer with lots of taste. Getting pissed is such a waste.
