Lowrider is a very highly hopped yet low-alcohol IPA style beer. We decided it was time to buck the trend of stronger, high alcohol IPA’s and IIPA’s.

Bottle from Antarabanga Enterprise, Penang. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is caramel malt, weedy resin hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a dry malt, metallic, woody hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Considering the ABV it's not bad. Didn't really taste like a low alcohol beer at all.

Draft at Brew Craft in Tauranga. Son of a... bartender asked if I was sure I wanted this because it’s a low alcohol and I was like BITCH I’M A F***ING TICKER AND DAMMIT THIS IS MY 9TH BEER HERE SO I THINK I’VE EARNED THE RIGHT MEOW TO ORDER THIS PLUS IT’S TOP 50 IN STYLE ON RATEBEER!!! Damn, my kind gets no respect, yet I still believe we’re the most evolved form of humankind, sitting here outside on a nice New Zealand late summer day destroying our livers, ignoring other people, and running up crazy beer totals meow. Won’t be so funny meow when I get to 5000 ticks, the lifelong goal of most people on earth, will it meow? Meow before I was so rudely interrupted (cat game score 5 for those keeping track)... Clear copper with a well-formed white head. Aroma is caramel, pineapple, biscuit, light fruits. Flavor is light, malty, biscuit and grain, some pineapple. Lighter feel with average carbonation. Good for what it is meow (6).

Light peachy forefront. Well balanced sweet and deticant. A well balanced hoppy beer

explosivedog (1999) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2016
On tap at 16 Tun. Aroma is sweet and fruity, almost bordering on white chocolate. Flavour has a bit more fruit to it, but it’s also quite watery.

adasko (2233) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 22, 2016
Juicy, fruity aroma - pineapple, mango, papaya. Dark golden color, poor head, nice lacing. In taste it’s rather empty and flat, but hey it’s 2,5 abv beer. Still is quite hoppy, quite fruity. Rather low bitterness but it gives what it should - very refreshing, crisp, easy drinking.

Bottle from New World Wellington (December 2015). Pale golden, white head, tropical fruit aromas, juicy fruity hops, solid malt, light body, medium bitterness. Excellent light beer!

blipp (10184) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 9, 2015
Draft. Gold with a white head. Sweet malts, spoiled fruit, diacetyl, and a thin mouthfeel. Not completely horrible, but definitely underattenuated and thin.

KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 17, 2015
This beer is amazing. 2.7% and it tasted like a full IPA. They acheived what they set out to do. it is not a diluted weak thin bodied waste of time and money.

Why bother calling this an IPA? Aroma is of tropical fruits and aged cheese. Flavor is as expected for a 2.7% brew. Tropical fruit from hops and not much else. Thin body supported by hops rather than malt. All things considered you could do worse with a low alcohol beer.

Fruity quite refreshing beer. A strong lingering on the back if the palette with flavors of grapefruit, Mandarin and maybe mango. Very enjoyable and definitely a summer drink for me.
