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.

jjsint (2260) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2016
Bottle from the Magpie and Crown, Brentford. Dark gold, hazy, with a decent-sized off-white head. Some lacing. Mango and papaya dominate the aroma, but there’s an odd plastic note with something else akin to mosquito spray. Doesn’t completely spoil it but knocks it back a notch. Taste is balanced, sweeter than most session IPAs, and there’s a savoury note akin to pumpkin. Long finish is much more bitter as the tangy hops linger. Not perfect but my God there’s bags of character for this ABV.

Vignale (3258) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2016
Flaska från ICA, Möllan, Malmö. Fin doft med grön humle, tallskott, citrus och aningen tropisk frukt främst mango. Ok kropp, lite fruktig, tallskott relativt stram med medelstor beska med citrusvita och aningen resin. Ändå ok balans. Gott.

puren (675) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - JUL 28, 2016
nieprzejrzyste, pomarańczowe, bardzo obfita mydlana piana bardzo szybko znika;
intensywny chmielowy - marakuja, ziemia, mango i inna egzotyka;
ciało średnie, puszyste, średnio nasycone, ziemiste, z goryczkowym finiszem;
lekka słodycz, owoce egzotyczne i silna nie za długa trawiasta goryczka;
przyjemne, wyraźnie chmielowe, o pięknym aromacie i świetnie niskiej zawartości alkoholu.

ThreeCats (804) - ISRAEL - JUN 25, 2016
Clearish good with nice head. Aroma is just a tropical fruit salad, with loads of papaya and mango, simply fantastic. Taste has a good zest to it lemon rind and melon, all the hop happiness, without the crazy ABV. Great and drinkable

Bottle from M&S. Good effort this. You would be fooled into thinking that this was much stronger than it actually is. Lots of flavour here. Joins my Low/Non Alcohol Hall Of Fame. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheKernOwl (174) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Incredible tropical pine and mango aroma for a 2.8%. Nice creaminess, then finish a little faint. Have a feeling that come the summer, we’ll all be sailing half mast.
