Poured to a tan head with moderate retention and lacing. Appearance was a golden honey, slight haze. Aroma was hoppy with citrus, pine and grain mixed in. Nice taste with strong hop and citrus on the front with a little malt on the back. Mouthfeel was light, almost water like, with a grain aftertaste.

Serving type: can

I spied this with my little eye in The Fridge's cooler during a recent visit. The CANQuest (TM) has been rolling right along since my return from CANorado and today is another day of CANs.

From the CAN: "Brewed for us."; "Crack it. Pour it. Love it."; "Session Ale [-] The beer you've been waiting for. Keeps your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp. An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatics and a clean finish. The perfect reward for an honest day's work and the ultimate companion to celebrate life's simple pleasures."; "Drink responsibly. They don't serve Founders in the Clink."

The Crack was music to mine ears and I was anxious to get started so I employed an inverted Glug to kick things off. I ended up with a massive two fingers of foamy, rocky eggshell-white head with decent retention. Color was a beautiful amber (SRM = between 9 and 13) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was VERY pine-y and I had to glance at the ABV to remind myself that it is a sessionable beer. Mouthfeel was kind of thin and watery for the style, but if that is the trade-off between taste and low ABV, I will take it without complaint. The taste was more muted than what the nose had led me to expect and it actually had a very mellow tea-like quality on the tongue. Finish was equally mellow and slightly hypnotic. I felt like I was ready for a nap.

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.
