Poured to a tan head with moderate retention and lacing. Appearance was a golden honey, slight haze. Aroma was hoppy with citrus, pine and grain mixed in. Nice taste with strong hop and citrus on the front with a little malt on the back. Mouthfeel was light, almost water like, with a grain aftertaste.

Poured this AIPA from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a light amber color, produced an average white head , featured average retention and average lacing. The aroma consisted of biscuit malt, pine and citric grapefruit. Medium bodied, there was a foundation of sweet malted grain, toffee and an average amount of piney hops- citric grapefruit as well. Overall its an entry level IPA it is what it says it is...a session beer. It will do the trick, but there are much better IPA's out there.

Poured into a snifter on 2/20/12

Bottled 01/04/12

Sun-faded gold and honey color; aside from a minor haziness it has a pretty sheen. One finger of foam is capped by 1/3rd inch of soapy bubbles. The foam is gone quickly while the bubbles hang on longer. Lace is ok; some patches manage to catch.

The aroma finds notes of floral and grassy hops, pine, lemon and citrus zest, sugar cookies and a hint of honey. All this is well and good. Then, after sitting for a few minutes, overtones of hairspray creep in, and there's an occasional notion of cooked veggies (though low in the mix).

Thankfully the veggies aren't to be found come sippin' time. Though an ambiance of aerosol does exist, it's milder than in the aroma and the hops taste pretty much as they should - lots of pine with citric pith and peel and such. This is very dry throughout. The malt profile is more neutral here - it's clean and has only a mild cracker characteristic.

Light bodied and on the thin side. Neither is a bad thing (it's appropriate for the beer) but carbonation is fast and rather sharp, at least upfront, which makes for a biting drinking experience. Finishes dry with residual bitterness and a faint dusty biscuit note.

This is decent, but it's not something I'm likely to get again any time soon. That said, it's easily drinkable and I'm not one to complain about an IPA with a reasonable abv being available.
