Aroma: Soft orange blossom and honey notes. Candied oranges and moderate fruity esters (pear, fresh melon) are at the forefront.
Appearance: Amber pour with golden edging. Low white head that doesn't retain well.
Flavor: Firm earthy bitterness up front followed by orange rind and some lemon fruit flavor. Balance is firmly bitter and finish is bone dry. No malt flavors to speak of. The hops really shine.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied and moderately high carbonation. Just a touch of hop-derived astringency.
Overall impression: Delivers as advertised. Nice approachable hoppy beer that you can enjoy a couple pints of. Highly recommended.
Serving type: bottle

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.
