3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler that I bought for TURDFERGSON, which he then generously shared with me. Nose of lovely citrusy hops; some resin and skunk as well. Just mad freshness. Taste is slightly thin, as expected, but still full of flavor. Extra points for clocking in under 5%. I could (and hopefully will) drink a lot of this.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy head. Good head retention, nice lacing. Aroma of resin, pine, herbal, citrus hops. The taste is bitter resin, pine hops and pale malts. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

Draft at the brewpub. This is my kind of beer. Hoppy nose, grassy, citrus, piney... Taste is citrus, piney, grassy but well balanced and easy to drink. Could of swore this beer had a nice dankyness to it but took terrible notes. Body is on the lighter side but tons of flavor for a low alcohol content beer. Overall good stuff!

Pours orange-gold with a bubbly head. Lots of citrus hop aromas. Fresh and lively. Packs a ton of flavor for a low alcohol beer. Clean palate and not too drying. Awesome!

10 oz at the brewpub. Here?s another excellent hoppy beer from Wicked Weed. Though this is lighter, it doesn?t sacrifice so much body as to be confused with an APA. Loads of hops are everywhere. It?s primarily evergreen, almost minty with a backdrop of citrus. Flavor is all about the hops with more bitterness cutting through the flavor. Notes of rosemary, pine and citrus everywhere. Really great beer, especially for a <%5.

32oz growler, thanks to durhambeer for picking me up growlers from the brewery. Pours hazy orange golden, medium small bubbled sudsy white head. Nose is lots of tropical fruits including coconut, skunky dank pot, pine, light must, guava, light pepper , Belgian yeast esters. Flavor is super smooth. Maybe the Belgian type yeast they are using is meant to dry out the beer as much as possible, I’m not sure. It’s kind of annoying, and I’m still unsure how I feel about it. But for a 4.5%, I can’t argue that this isn’t a pretty fuckin awesome ipa.
