12oz bottle. Pours a semi hazy brownish straw color with almost no head. Some lacing. The aroma is biscuity malts and some light floral hops. The taste is much like the aroma. Mostly the malt flavor up front followed by some light floral hops. Bready with a floral, almost soapy, finish. Virtually no alcohol flavor, as expected, with a light mouthfeel. Tastes like an alright Pale Ale. Since this bills itself as a "Session" ale, I have to say this is nowhere near as good as some of the better ones out there. Overall, ok in a mix 12 pack but I'd never buy it on its own.

Hazy orange body, topped by two fingers of off-white foam.

Fruity citrus aroma. Fresh.

Slippery light sweetness, the malt does not make a strong impression. Very fruity. Bitter snap at the swallow.

Very prickly, excessively so, mouthfeel.

Another "session IPA" that amounts to sacrifices too much in the malt department. Billed as between a pale and an IPA, it's comes across as an over hopped blonde ale. Seriously needs more balance.
