3.84/5 rDev -0.3%
Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: medium golden hue with a little touch of haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a thin layer of ivory foam which dissipates quickly. It's alright.
Smell: sweet, tangeriney hops on a somewhat grainy malt background. There's almost a candy-like quality to the tangerine. Amarillos, maybe? In any case, quite enticing.
Taste: grainy malt base with some citrusy, tangeriney hops as in the aroma. A touch of sweetness backs it up. Quite tasty for a lower-ABV kind of brew. I like it.
Mouthfeel: light body with a good level of carbonation, generating a nice creaminess with a refreshing lightness.
Overall: a highly drinkable brew, I could see myself quaffing this all summer if I had the chance.

Pours darker blond with a finger of white head.
Smell is really hoppy, fresh cut grass.
Taste is grassy, a bit stale, a bit of mild fruit. It’s got taste, but not a good one.
Very light bodied.
Session IPA is not one of my favorite styles. This one is middle of the road in a sub-par style. I can drink it, but I wouldn’t pursue it.

I'm surprised by how many high marks this had. Maybe I got a bad 6 pack or something, but this was nothing special. No malt at all, only piney aroma and taste. I'm not saying it's bad by any stretch, but just not enough going on to give it superb marks. I'd compare the sixer I had to a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, with less taste and aroma.
All I got from this was some piney hops and that's it. No complexity at all to round out the beer.
