I'm surprised by how many high marks this had. Maybe I got a bad 6 pack or something, but this was nothing special. No malt at all, only piney aroma and taste. I'm not saying it's bad by any stretch, but just not enough going on to give it superb marks. I'd compare the sixer I had to a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, with less taste and aroma.

All I got from this was some piney hops and that's it. No complexity at all to round out the beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Bottle into glass

A - Clear light orange/yellow. Pours a medium head that recedes to a ring around the edge. Moderate/minimal lacing.

S - Not a huge nose, faint tropical hops and light malt

T - Overall taste is lacking as well. Starts with a little bread, then hops with lemon, pinneapple and grapefruit, finishes with a little funk and pine pricklyness. The funk, pine, and bread tastes linger on the palate. Overall a little bland, watery, and prickly

M - High carbonation and light/watery body

O - Not nearly as much character as I hoped for. There are plenty of other beers that I would rather drink all day

Served from a 12oz bottle.

A: beautiful amber color, but little to no head.

S: maybe it's because I drink a lot of IPAs, but I could barely tell this was an IPA. Probably because it is a sessions IPA, but there are subtle hoppy, floral scents.

T: mild IPA taste. Again due to the sessions IPA style.

M: easy to drink, goes down smooth.

O: I am not a fan of sessions IPAs so this does not get a favorable rating for me. If these are your style, I think it would hit the spot, but I like my IPAs powerful.
