Draft at winners circle. Pours copper with a dense but small had. Aroma is really nice and full of piney hops. The taste is medium bitter and very tasty for a low abv ipa. I’m very impressed with this and could enjoy in a session for sure.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A clear amber pour with a smallish light beige head. Lots of juicy grapefruits, zesty citrus rinds, resiny pine needles, and an earthy graininess in the somewhat perfumed/grassy aroma. Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. A tad watery here and there. The taste starts with a crackery graininess. Earthy and wheaty in the middle. Some zesty citrus fruits and rinds at the end. Finishes crisp and slightly dry. One-sided, but very poundable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. A decent IPA, but my least favorite offering from Weyerbacher. Grass hop scent, very faint, with a little sweet citrus on the finish. Translucent bronze pour, foamy head. LIghter than medium body with a slightly sticky feel. Bitter grass hop taste, very one dimensional. I’ll stick with the Double Simcoe or the Infused Hop from Weyerbacher in the future.
