4 oz draft pour at Spacebar, shared by GenDV138, thanks Donnie! Poured a very slightly hazy, chilled hazy golden yellow color with a small off-white head. Aroma was citrus, floral hop notes, light wheat, grain. Mild citrus. Lemon and orange. Juicy. Nice. NotABeerFan (52) - GLASGOW, SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2018
Cask ale, beer mug, Wetherspoons, Cumbernauld. What a disappointment, strong hop nose and fairly hoppy flavour, which I liked but tasted like hoppy water, not beer. When pulled, it took a while to clear and settle, the head was dense and long lasting suggesting good carbonation, but it was pretty flat. And classic Wetherspoons, the cask ales always seem to be a few degrees warmer than I prefer. GenDV138 (8072) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2018

Tangerine and grapefruit nose, honey underneath. Hazy amber, medium yellow head, nice lace. Honey, dandelion, and grapefruit. Resinous tangerine finish. Light body, moderate carbonation. Very hoppy and tasty, but too bitter for the style.

2015 BJCP Category: 21B Specialty IPA
AROMA: Moderately strong hop aromatics of citrus and tropical fruit; candy. Minor grass character. No malt distinctiveness. 9/12
APPEARANCE: Pale orange hue (5-7 SRM); hazy body. Moderate off-white froth retains and laces well. 3/3
FLAVOR: Fairly strong dry hop bitterness throughout. Citrusy flavor is most dominate throughout the first half, but not juicy per se. There is an underlying taste akin to tea leaves. Slight astringency due to dry, crushed vitamin-like bitterness. Malt offers balances but no character of its own. Palette is rather simple and repetitive overall. 13/20
MOUTHFEEL: Light bodied; medium-high carbonation. Somewhat refreshing while in the mouth; but the aftertaste is a dry, somewhat astringent sensation. Sessionable at 4.5% ABV. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Technically it has what you want in a SIPA, but offers nothing new. Fine, but not great. 6/10
TOTAL SCORE: 34/50
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2017 Superb. Utterly superb. My hunt for a sessionable IPA has come to a close with the discovery of this gem from the masters at SixPoint, home of one of my all time favorites, Hi-Res.
Great sessionable IPA's are very hard to pull off, but Lo-Res delivers the hop punch and light malt balance necessary to satisfy and keep quaffing without hitting the floor. It's almost like you're drinking hop juice alone. This beer is now in my fridge as a staple along with veggies and meats.
