Heavy grapefruit, a bit much for me otherwise would be a 4. Good balance malt, crisp and not too dry

Poured from a tap into a 16 oz pint glass, an unremarkable blonde-gold color with a short lived white head that left a lot of lace. Mild hop aroma. Tastes strongly of piney resin and bright citrus hops, rather astringent at first, almost more Pine-Sol than pine, but then rounds out with a little more malt for a clean light finish. Mouthfeel is pleasant and slightly sticky. The overall flavor profile just slightly off-key, the front a tad too bitter, the finish a tad too watery. This reminds me of sodas or juice drinks with reduced sugar: my tongue misses the boozy heft of the real thing. However when you want those bitter hops but only a minor buzz, this gets the job done and is fairly pleasant.

All the facets of an IPA like the bitterness, stinky Hop breath, and satiating of the pine tree palate without all the buzz. I guess I'm happy that I can reliably go beer for beer with my Bud drinking friends IPA style now without looking (or feeling) inadequate....at the same time it's a bummer that I'm gonna have to drink a few more of these IPAs before I'm feeling good. Though it may take one or two more to get me going, that's okay, because this one has a bright, citrus flavor to it that tastes pretty good actually.

A - Pours a clear golden orange with a two-finger foamy white. The head dissapates quickly and leaves some soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is floral hops and citrus.

T - The flavor starts with a nice hit of piney hops that quickly into some nice citrus and bready malts.

M - Light bodied with high carbonation. The mouthfeel is crisp with a dry finish.

O - This is a great session IPA. Perfect for a drinking session or a warm day.

Look: Nice hazy golden color with a quickly dissipating head. Minimal lacing.

Smell: The smell is light and hard to distinguish. I suppose its a result of its low ABV and light body, but what little smell there is, is pleasant. Citrus with light hops. Melon and orange come through. Very light and refreshing.

Taste: Hops peak and fall quickly, leaving citrus throughout the entire sip. Alcohol is nonexistant, obviously, which is welcome with its light and refreshing nature. IPA style is present without having to go to the nth degree with its typical features. Extremely tasty. Can't wait to sip this at a BBQ or while camping during the summer. I want to see how it will hold up as it gets warm in the heat of outdoor activity, which might effect its taste (particularly in the can). This will likely be avoided considering the fact that it is drinkable and goes fast.

Feel: Very thin, but fits with the session style and taste of the brew. Salivation from the small hop hit and citrus keeps it from being TOO thin. Good.

Overall: Easily the best session IPA i've ever heard. No reason to ever drink a bud light again with this beer. Easily worth the extra money for a 15 pack as opposed to a 12er for 18 for little difference in price. Glad I found it.
