Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden orange color with a half finger white foam head that immediately fades into a very thin ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind.
Dank, floral hop aroma with lots of resinous pine and earthy grass character countered by subtle citrus fruit and a pale malt backbone. Slightly spicy with grass, pine needle and über-fresh sticky buds followed by some grapefruit, pineapple, biscuit and graham cracker. Kind of reminds me of fresh cut grass. Very nice!
Medium bodied with a crisp and spicy earthy hop bite that lingers over the sweeter fruit notes and pale malt backbone into a dry finish. Fresh juicy hops with some dry, earthy bitterness and resinous pine flavor countered by hints of grapefruit, mango and pineapple. Could use a bit more citrus/tropical fruit flavor but there is enough there to add complexity and balance out the bitterness. Underneath, there is a pale malt backbone that really helps balance things out without taking away from the hop flavors. Some bread, biscuit, graham cracker and a touch of sweetness rounding things out in the finish. Really tasty and excellently balanced with a low ABV making this beer extremely drinkable. Not the most flavorful or aggressively hopped IPA but it’s really nice and I could see myself drinking this "all day". AwaKe (300) - Laval, CANADA - NOV 11, 2015
En bouteille. Couleur blonde assez pâlotte, belle mousse blanche aérienne. Arôme de pins et d?agrumes, goût similaire, un peu dilué, mais avec une belle amertume. Palais très faible, effervescence élevée. Très désaltérante. Giochaurand (533) - FINLAND - NOV 7, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2015 Bottle. Pours clear golde with low head. Aroma is grapefruit, herbs and hops. Taste is grapefruit, orange peel and resin. Not bad. madchemist83 (272) - USA - NOV 6, 2015
Aromas of resin, pine and sweet citrus. Golden brown with small white head. Spot on taste albeit a bit watered down at the end. Reminds me down to earth from 21st ammendment. For 19 bucks a 15 (!) pack can’t beat this. I can drink it all day. themightylazza (108) - - NOV 6, 2015
An Orange coloured ipa, the label of a session ale is well merited, as the accent is on freshness over excessive hop bitterness. It is a little lacking in aroma, mostly stale hops, a crisp malty flavour with tangy Orange citrous and well balanced bitter hop finish. I had this in Byron restaurant recently and it went very well with the burger too. Bravo

This is an excellent example of the sub-5% ABV IPA style. Unlike those that lack malt depth and hop balance, this one nails it. Overall, the best session IPA I have tasted. rekvium (426) - Odense C, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2016 From tap at Den Smagløse. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of hay and stale hops, bread, cereal, citrus fruits, a bit tangerine. Taste is lots of stale hops, citrus, hay, cereal. I can taste that this would be really good when fresh. This is old...
New rating: 25/1-16... Fresh, citrus, juice, peaches, tropical, light pine. Much better!!! Svesse (8982) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2015
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 19 Sep 2015) Pale amber colour with dense, off-white head. Malty, hoppy nose with citrus, orange, grapefruit and a touch of tea. Malty, hoppy taste with notes of citrus, tea, orange peel, grapefruit, toast, some resin and a generous citric bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Fresh and tasty, highly drinkable. Nice one.

Can 355 ml. Golden hay with a light hade and thin head with little lacing. This is a true favourite of minne among session IPAs. There is so much hops yet balanced notes of grass and some resin notes as well. Overall bitterness level is great for a session beer. sir__v (2630) - FRANCE - OCT 30, 2015
