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.
