Exactly what they said and are going for. The hops add the extra for the almost ipa, but it’s still a lower level of the pale variety. Pine scent and a touch of citrus hops. The taste is refreshing and easy. Not over or underwhelming. Bottle

Great beer when you rate it for what it is. Only 5.1% so you can drink it all day, yet still has plenty of hop flavor. As pale ales go, I really can only think of a few that do it better. This is my summer go to beer. Hoppy, crisp, good floral aroma, drinkable all day. Nuff said.

For me Sidekick is a great lawnmower beer. Not quite a Session IPA and not really a Summer seasonal. Light, citrus hops and aroma work well in this APA. Looked right a home in my Schimdt’s of Philadelphia beer glass.

Draft at roundhouse. Light grassy aroma. Very clear pale yellow. Taste is faintly grassy with a non descrpt sweetness. Quenching but seems muted in the hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled brew from a beer festival poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent light orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of mild citrus breads and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 16oz can, into a nonic pint glass. Pours a light, cloudy yellow with lasting thin layer of head and great lacing. Very pale as pale ales go. Aroma is sweet fruit juicy and maybe some grass. Taste is short and fresh, almost tart with some straw and grape or raspberry. Lively carbonation and relatively light aftertaste make this really sessionable and nice for a hot day outside. Nice!
