Light golden in color with a foamy white head. The aroma is slightly spicy with notes of citrus fruits like grapefruit, orange and tangerine. The spice and citrus flavors from the American hops dominate but are backed up by the slight malt flavor of the grains. It has moderate carbonation and a dry, hoppy finish. It is light in calories and carbs but still big on flavor. 118 Calories and 7g of carbs to be exact.

Floating Dock Light IPA by 3 Daughters Brewing is being judged as a 21B Specialty IPA-Session Strength IPA. This beer pours a pale gold in the glass with hints of amber and a billow off-white head. The nose initially is a bit grassy and vegetal, light citrus notes and faint sweet malt. It seems to have some age on it, but I sampled this 3 times and I believe it to be the character of the beer. In the taste, the bitterness is sharp and aggressive, at times unpleasant. The hop flavor is quite light, tending towards lemon and grass, along with that vegetal note again.
