(21A. American IPA) This IPA has familiar grapefruit and lemon hop aromas and a low ethanol note. Overall it smells citrusy-sweet, without the intensity found in some examples. It is orange in color and has a dense, white head that lasts forever—a welcome trait for a canned beer. This beer tastes lightly sweet with the same citrusy hops found in the aroma. Bitterness is moderately high and there is another trace of alcohol in the finish. This IPA’s body is lighter than many other examples, which creates an enjoyable, fluffy mouthfeel. This example has all the well-known traits of an IPA, but isn’t particularly flavorful. HI-5 is good, but the bar is just too high to make this one worth seeking out.
