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.

jercraigs (8753) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2015
2015-09-20. Crisp amber body, near headless. Aroma is mild, English malt character, touch of caramel and treacle. Flavour is malty with a decent bitterness as well. Average to light bodied palate, very low carbonation. Not much to it, possibly a bit stale? Disappointing. Tap vs cask not indicated, at Royal Navy Volunteer, Bristol.

Martinus (4062) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2015
Amber colour, white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, tropical fruits, passion fruit. Rather bitter flavour, resin, hops. Quite thin (not surprising). Hoppy finish. Really nice session IPA.

AWS9 (574) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle. kind of boring copper-honey pour with minimal bubbly head. Quite prominent hop nose - well done on that. Has an initial bitterness, and I swear I am getting the "mango" and "grapefruit" in the finish. Damn well done for a low-alcohol option!

leaparsons (8976) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Keg, Brewdog Leicester. Hazy golden with an off white foam. Leafy, floral and sudsy with mellow tropical fruit. Lightly nutty cereal body with crackers. Yeasty with mellow oranges. Light but good.

Pours cloudy amber with a large frothy white head. Aromas of grapefruit, pine cones, grass, peach, apricot. Taste is grapefeuit, grass, apricot, pine cones, peach. A bit thin palate-wise, but very good for such a low abv beer!

nice nice session. cocktail like fruitiness is to the fore. ample flavour. some complexity. feels like actual fruits rather than hops, like a hawaiian ipa. for the abc this is incredible
