12oz bottle, served in a tulip glass.

A: Hazy, golden-amber pour; a finger's worth of off-white foam on the pour; head quickly reduces to a fine layer of bubbles; clingy lacing

S: Initial notes of pine, grapefruit, citrus rind (lemon peel maybe?) and grassy hops; the malt backbone is relatively missing in the aroma - maybe a faint hint of doughy bread, but that's all.

T: The first wave across the tongue reveals flavors of bitter grapefruit and citrus rind; some pine and a sweeter, grassy note darts through the middle; the malt remains relatively tame, just a light biscuit flavor revealing its presence behind the grassy hop note; finish is drying and slightly astringent, with lingering notes of herbs and mint from the hops.

M: Slick body with sufficient carbonation to lend a crisp, lighter edge

O: While session IPAs are a very popular trend these days, I'm not entirely sold on this offering. While the low-ABV package means you can enjoy a couple these beers in a single sitting, the flavors leave something to be desired, meaning I probably wouldn't drink more than one anyways. Personally, I would like to see more balance and sweetness from the malts backbone.
