Lovely clear golden amber. Nice head and goodly lacing.
Smell is dank and earthy. Lots of hops of the English earth. Some light citrus. Bready malt. Taste is perfect. Dry hoppy ale that is crisp while having a satisfying punch. Support dry finish with lots of hop oil lingering. Feel is as I said crisp with nice mildly effervescent carbonation. A perfect American expression of a mild ale.

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.
