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.

Amber color with a relatively thin head.
Lots of peaches in the aroma.
Sweet malty flavor with a good deal of earthy, pine and citric hops. Hints of apricot and guaraná soda.
Very dry, even astringent, and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with low carbonation but with an effervescent sensation.
Quite flavorful IPA, its name probably refers to the relatively low alcohol content while its drinkability is regular for an IPA.

Bottle poured into pint. Not bad at all.

Three finger head after a rough pour faded after ninety seconds

Burnt orange color

Smells of pine and resin

Taste: alcohol, floral hop, and pine

Mouthfeel: oily and pleasant

Overall, this is a good beer!

poured 12oz bottle into pint glass

A - Pours a light sun color with a slight hue of lime. Nice 2 finger white bubbly head and lacing galore.

S - Light citrus and floral hops, not really any malt or sweet smell.

T - Not too exciting as it is just some floral, citrus hop juice and no real malt to speak of.

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation. A lot like the "fizzy yellow beer" feel

O - As an IPA it is weak since there really is no malt to speak of. As a session ale it is pretty good as a light, refreshing drink on a hot day. Not much separates this from Lagunitas Daytime or Central Waters Hop Rise.
