look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Adequate finger high head of loose off-white bubbles, not quite foam per se, clears off swiftly to a ring around the edges, the lacing is super-thin but does form decently wide streaks before evaporating. Yellow gold colored liquid with a soft orange cast, only a few fat bubbles visible, scattered about, looks “basic” and unassuming. Piney nose with raw grains, grass, yeast and grapefruit rinds, more floral than fruity, more wheat as it warms, overall has a fresh, taut character, good balance and no burn. Medium-bodied, tight and slightly overly aggressive carbonation, keeps it scrubbing into the tongue which favors bitterness over sweetness. Pepper and herbaceous green grass, grains, pine, black tea leaf, the blood orange and grapefruit pith drying. Thin dusting of cocoa and allusion to anise, malts not contributing much to the final equation. Seems to pull back on just about every ingredient, wants a close race among them all, as a result more calculatedly balanced than integrated. You lose interest after the second bottle.

4.03/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Aroma: Super bold aroma for a session ale, only 4.7% ABV. Bold grapefuit citrus from American hops, a good dose of fresh pine needles. Moderate pale malt sweetness.

Appearance: Medium gold color, like apple juice. Just a touch of haze. Head pours small and is clean white. Low retention and low to medium lacing.

Taste: Impressed immediately. Bold sweet citrus, almost all grapefruit. Moderate pale malt sweetness. Mild grains.

Mouthfeel: Medium-low body. Creamy. Finishes very dry. The mild carbonation is felt after the swallow.

Overall: I could drink a few of these... Nice low ABV for a change, but the flavor was not sacrificed. The malt flavor could have been a bit bolder, but it works well, I can't imagine a better tasting Session IPA given the ABV restriction.

4.21/5  rDev +9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 6.7.12, poured into a Founders Pint glass

A. I poured this one with care, but recall that a hard pour results in a big foamy head; this one faded quickly to a thin white head that rests in a ring up against the interior of the glass. Light in color, orange/yellow, and translucent.

S. Light floral hops, light pine involved, as well, along with citrus. Natural aromas, with everything a bit muted.

T. Follows the nose, except for some very interesting natural flavors coming through; wheat and grass.

M. Light carbonation, very refreshing, goeas down very easy...perfect summer beer, or a beer for any season.

O. Love it.

This beer is awesome. An absolutely well-executed session beer. If you can ignore the fact the IPAs really aren't' supposed to **be** session beers, this beer will satisfy the beer geek who is desperate for a flavorful beer that they can actually have with lunch and not trash the rest of their day.

The beer is a little over-carbonated for it's intended purpose, and I have been pouring these vigorously, and have even resorted to stirring the beer in the glass with a fork to get the carbonation level closer to cask-like. The head is a lovely white with moderate retention--lacing sticks to the glass the whole way through. The nose of the beer is pine resiny. Really inviting. The bitterness here is intense and at 42IBUs, and especially sharp considering the light body--and this pronounced bitterness is the only "flaw" I can fault the beer for (though, I'm not actually sure what a session IPA *should* be like in terms of bitterness ;). In any case the bitterness and dryness of the beer conspire together to make the brew especially drinkable, with the end of one sip begging for the beginning of another. If this beer were more widely available (and perhaps a little cheaper) this would be stocked in my fridge all the time.
