Appearance - 4/5
very clear light orange. About one finger of head, disspates down to a minimal layer of head on the top of the beer. An average amount of carbonation can be seen rising from the beer.

Smell - 3.75/5
Strong pine hops smell. Can't really smell anything else.

Taste - 4.25/5
The pine-hops taste is not as strong as the smell, rather it is balanced with a light malts taste. I really like the taste, because it provides the pine taste, but almot no bitterness. I definitely see this being a session beer, as the name suggests.

Mouthfeel - 4/5
Slightly less than medium body. Smooth, with only a hint of bitterness. A medium amount of light carbonation. The carbonation level fits nicely with the rest of the beer.

Overall - 4/5
Overall, this is a good, sessionable IPA. I'm not an IPA fan, but I could see myself easily drinking a few of these in one sitting no problem. A highly drinkable IPA. Recommended for those who are just trying to break into the IPA style, or those who enjoy IPAs only occasionally.

For a session, it's great! Light enough for anytime of day, yet it has a strong hop forward taste that packs a crisp, pine/floral punch. Great outta the can...My go-to for the outdoors!

This is my go to beer and one that got me into the realm of IPAS.

Mediocre beer. Good in the summer. Like that it comes in cans. Eh

A very flavorful IPA for such a low ABV. Lacks the backbone of a true IPA and is a bit watery. This brew has a nice piney, citrusy flavor. If I was looking for a session IPA I think I prefer Stone levitation Ale to this brew.

It tastes great, low ABV, inexpensive, and comes in 15-packs in cans. My fridge is always stocked. If you haven't tried it yet, go for it.
