4/5 rDev +3.9%
On tap at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.
Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus fruit and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty, light, and easy to drink.

3.76/5 rDev -2.3%
Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit
Smell: A ton of toasted malts with a hint of citrus
Taste: As with the aroma, I get a lot of toasted malt, but the hops shine a little more in the flavor
Mouthfeel; Full body for the abv, but light for the style, as I was expecting. Crisp and refreshing with slight bitterness
Overall: Ill be the first to admit that I don't get the "session IPA" style. Isn't that what a pale ale is? Anyways, I appreciate that they can pull bold flavors with as little abv as my PBR. But I'd rather have a few regular IPAs or IIPAs with more flavor than a bunch of these, especially for the price. I will consider buying this again if I really do need to drink a low abv without sacrificing flavor. As far as All Day vs. Go To goes, I was blown away with Go To compared to this. More bright fruit flavor and less malt. The date was rubbed off on this bottle, so I will have to reevaluate a confirmed fresh one.
