look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours dark golden with a white head with good retention. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of citrus and tropical fruits - esp. grapefruit and banana.

The taste is citric/tropical with caramel backing. There is a slight metallic touch in the finish. Finishes dry with a brief aftertaste.

It has a smooth, crisp medium body.

It is "sessionable", so the name fits. To me it's more of a hoppy pale ale than a traditional American IPA. A nice beer with a moderate abv.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Pours a gorgeous orange-honey color with a solid, finger high, off-white/light tan head. Only slightly hazy, light gets all the way through but is filtered and it actually makes the color pop more, in my estimation. Good lacing as well.
Smell is hops (grapefruit with a hint of pine), wood, malt, all balanced very well.
Taste is spot on with the olfactory presence, grapefruit/pine hops, wood and malt notes. Very well balanced with the hops being exactly where they should be. A light medicinal not creeps in during the aftertaste but does not detract at all from the experience.
Watery at the start and through the middle, the body fills in just at the swallow ending up medium. Carbonation is medium plus. For an IPA it is rather less biting than most though not smooth as I cannot bring myself to describe any IPA that way (save a double/imperial). Well named, I could easily drink several of these throughout the day. Sadly, I only have two.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Tan with orange tinges, pretty clear, good head and lace.

Aroma is very nice, plenty hoppy and inviting, more than you'd expect from anything with "session" in the name. Same goes for the taste, it's plenty IPA-like, while being superbly drinkable, even almost summertime lawnmower drinkable. "Refreshing" isn't an IPA type of term very often, but this time it just about fits.

Definitely recommended.
