4.01/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. Bottled on 2/11/2013 (just over 1 month old)

Pours out a clear golden color with maybe a bit of orange coming through. About one fingers worth of white head that was short lived. Spotty lacing.

A nice fresh hop aroma. Somewhat pungent. Ripe tropical fruits, fresh pine, and fresh citrus peel.

Some nice hop flavors, citrus and pine with some ripe tropical fruits, but it falls on its face on the back end with a thin almost watery feel. No real malt flavors noticeable. Finishes clean with a good hop bitterness. A bit of breadiness noticeable as it warms, perhaps more of a yeasty breadiness?

Light bodied, but quite refreshing and drinkable.

I enjoyed this beer, mostly due to its light drinkable ABV, but still some nice hop flavors. I could see myself buying this again.

a beautifully clean copper/gold color with a finger of white head, lots of visible carbonation. smells very hoppy, grapefruit, pine, caramel. the flavor is mostly hoppy, definitely tasting the 2row, grapefruit, pine. medium body on the lighter side, moderate carbonation. a very refreshing and tasty ipa. the lower alcohol percentage makes it a perfect summer beer.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.25

Let me start off by saying that this whole "session (insert beer here) drives me crazy. A session IPA is a pale ale. A session imperial stout is a stout. A session doppelbock is a bock. This is not an IPA, no matter what you call it. My review reflects rating this as an IPA, of which classification it officially belongs.

Pours a wonderful golden amber color with a small and slightly wispy white head. There is some sporadic lacing, but nothing like most IPAs I see.

The aroma is wonderful. Full of fresh hoppiness. Citrus and piney. Grapefruit, lemon zest, caramel malts to a lesser extent.

The flavor is awesome for a pale ale. Plenty of hop flavor, some fresh baked bread, a bit of grainy malt which I love, light malts, dry as a bone.

The mouthfeel is nowhere close for the style. Very watery and thin, super dry, high carbonation, but a solid bit of bitterness. Think IPA plus tap water.

I enjoy the aromas and flavor but the mouthfeel and alcohol are completely non existent, which is a big part of an IPA.

Thanks to grub for this one.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle, bottled 02/28/12.

Appearance: A thick head at the beginning but rapidly decreases to a thin ring and doesn't leave much lacing. The tiny bubbles racing up in the pale gold body are nice to look.

Smell: Grassy, a bit catty and some vegetal tones. Surprisingly powerful aroma.

Taste: Vegetal hops, burst of grapefruit but the follow-up is lacking a bit. The hops do shine though a bit.

Mouthfeel: Body is light and it's very easy to drink but it's rather ordinary.

Overall: I love session and low ABV beers but this one doesn't fully do it for me. Definitely easy to put away a few but not engaging enough to make me want to.
