Fizzy. A bit stringent. Does taste like an IPA. Hate to be harsh, but a really boring beer. Bought a case (in cans) but I cant drink more than one at a time. Def not an all day brew for m.e

On tap at Murphy's in Sunnyside, NY. Drank 10.3.14.

This is my first foray into the Session IPA style, and the following review should reflect that. I recognize that the style it meant to be a lighter, lower ABV, more drinkable IPA... so lets see what we've got.

A: Pours a very light, clear amber, leaning heavily towards golden coloring, capped with one and half fingers of fluffy pure white head. The head is slow settling, and retains its fluff until its gone. Visually it struck me as a tame pale ale with a perkier head.

S: Complete and total surprise. Would not have thought that a 4.7% ABV IPA could pack this kind of aroma. Lots of hops, grapefruit, tart tangerine, apricot, pineapple. Tart and juicy with very little malt. Not as complex, or rich as bigger hop bomb beers, but given the desired nature of this beer it is quite impressive.

T: And now I understand the style. The taste just can't keep up with the aroma. Yes, you get the bright hops, subtle caramel from the malt, and an acidic tinge of citrus... but its all very... light. And after following up on the style, that seems to be the point.

M: Light, dry, lots of carbonation bouncing all over the tongue. Absolutely effortless to drink. I was quickly finding myself needing another just minutes after sitting down.

O: Centennial Light. The "lets do some day drinking" beer for the IPA fan. Would I drink it again? Sure. Will I ever set out to drink it again? Nope. I would rather just get a case of Centennial and pace myself.

When fresh and out of a can, this beer is addictive. The can is empty before I know it. I truly love it when it's on point. The problem is that you never know if it will be great or mediocre til you buy it.

Got this at a local college bar. Here goes:

A: Very good. Orange-yellow with a massive head that leaves adequate lacing. Clear to boot.

S: Nice and robust. A citrus backbone complimented by tropical smells such as pineapple and mango. Grassy notes as well.

T: Disappointing. Not as robust as the smell. Taste follows the nose, except that it's very, very light and watery.

M: Light, watery and no carbonation. Kind of a disappointment.

O: OK, just nothing to write home about. Stone's session IPA - Go-To IPA - is far, far better. The latter has a similar but much more robust taste. It also has a ton of carbonation that mitigates the light mouthfeel. Not so with this beer.

Never poured it out of the can. Smells super piney. Tastes just the same. Just a touch of bitter. So easy to drink. Exactly what it says it is. I could drink these all day at the beach. I might even be able to talk some of my cheap beer drinking friends to try this. Wow an IPA that is not over the top and is ok with itself.
