A - Partly hazy, with nice carbonation. Very small, 1/2 finger head that quickly dissipated (may have been an older bottle).
S - Very nice note of grapefruit. Very even smell.
T - Lovely even flavor: grapefruit peel, lovely bitterness mid-tongue.
M - Easy to drink, with the sweetness and the bitterness well-balanced and hitting the right spots.
O - This isn't the most full-flavored IPA, but it isn't supposed to be. In fact, it comes across as good, if not better, than much higher ABV IPAs. My first sip, I was disappointed, until I remembered it's 4.7%; every sip thereafter just got better and better. A very solid beer, all the way to the bottom of the glass.

Single can from a friend, no apparent date code. Poured into an All Day IPA pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden body with an inch of soapy, white head. The head hangs around for a few minutes, but eventually recedes to a wispy cap, leaving no lacing as I drink. It looks like a decent, but not spectacular, IPA.
S: Opening the can releases quite the burst of aroma; in the glass, I get an ample display of citrusy hops and fairly strong grain scent. Not bad at all for such a "small" beer.
T: A bit of citrusy hops, some more generic hop bitterness, and a lot of grain. Finishes with an interplay of hop bitterness and malt sweetness, though as the beer warms more of a lingering grainy bitterness shows up. On the whole, the flavor is good, but I don't see myself drinking this "all day."
M: Medium-bodied, with a grainy mouthfeel. I wasn't expecting much, and it delivers.
O: As an IPA, this would be a one-time beer for me. As a "Session IPA," it really does manage to hit all the notes while keeping the ABV low.
