The best session ipa in my opinion. Fruity and hoppy on the nose but smooth taste.

The best session IPA I've had. Alot of flavor, citrusy and piney.

Good beer if you're in the mood for an IPA or if you prefer them. Has that standard hoppy taste with a smooth finish. Doesn't come with that after bite you get with a lot of other IPAs but is quite good

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is dominated by strong grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, pine, a surprising level of bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall an enjoyable beer I could down several of with ease.

4.12/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a slightly burnished gold with a two-finger width white, bubbly head that quickly disperses into a thin froth on the surface, minimal lacing.

Aroma: Faint floral accents and hops mixed with a little fruitiness.

Taste: A bitter bite with fruity aftertaste, balanced fairly well so as not to overwhelm.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation on the tongue, fairly smooth, with a lingering bitter bite on the back end. Just a tad watery.

Overall: This is a very serviceable IPA that doesn't blow you out of the room, but lets the flavor linger throughout. A nicely balanced brew.

Pretty good session IPA. The mouthfeel is a little watery, but the smell is excellently grapefruity and floral, and the taste has a nice grapefruit bitterness to it. I could drink this daily.

Yes, definitely grapefruit smell and taste. The hops punch your tastebuds around. A little loud but its what you expect from an IPA. Nice mouthfeel. Overall not bad at all.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pale yellow gold in color with a little bit of haze in there. A small white head on top.

S: Grapefruit, and a touch of pine. But mostly grapefruit.

T: Holy grapefruit. Nice and clean, with some biscuit flavors, and light bread. The finish is a little thin, but overall very tasty.

M: Medium light in body, with fairly high carbonation. A somewhat thin finish makes it easy drinking, but also semi-watery. But seeing as how it is a session IPA, I don't think that's a major detractor.

O: Overall tasty, refreshing, and something I could destroy on a hot summer day.

Barely an ipa. Does qualify as a lager

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Small head, more carbonation than most. Small amount of lacing that disappeared as you drank.

Faint copper color, more of a gold color. Hop smell is not over bearing and it went down smooth. Good session IPA. Probably closer to the top for the price. I'll buy this again.

3.87/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: This beer pours a beautiful light amber gold color like a beautiful white head. The lacing disappears as the beer n consumed

Smell: A wonderful smell of pine and citrus.

Taste: Like most “session” IPA, this one is off balance. The hops hit you strong but there is no malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: A light beer with heavy hops.

Overall: This is one of the first "Session" IPA's that started a bad idea. In reality, these are over hopped pale ales and this one does not disappoint by being off balance. There is no malt backbone found in a good IPA.

Good Session IPA, not watery at all, and the name speaks for itself. Good session-able IPA.

On tap poured into a pint glass. A nice golden color, small half in. head on it that dissipated after a bit. Nice honey and bread smell, good floral notes up front with strong hoppy after taste. Real solid IPA. Very enjoyable in a mild way.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a very pretty golden amber/copper color with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Yep, that’s an IPA! Tons of floral, grassy, piney, citrusy hops up front, followed by some bready, biscuity, toasted malt and a touch of caramel and brown sugar.

Taste: It’s an IPA! But a seriously, perfectly balanced IPA! I get lots of piney, floral, citrusy hops up front, immediately followed by tons of bready, biscutiy toasted malt and quite a bit of caramel-like sweetness. Quite delicious, actually.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and both smooth and effervescent at the same time. With an ABV of 4.7%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a very well balanced, very tasty IPA. And that’s coming from a guy who doesn’t typically like IPAs. There are certainly some assertive hops in this beer, but it’s perfectly balanced with a huge malt backbone. I’ll certainly drink this again!

Very solid beer. Toned down flavors, so perhaps an "entry level" IPA. Super drinkability and very sessionable. At 4.7% for an actually decent IPA, I'd say that's a success. You can keep up with your friends who drink mass produced beer without being the first one to puke on your own lap.

One of my favorite session IPAs. Very citrusy and hoppy with a low alcohol content which allows one to enjoy "all day". My only complaint with this beer is I have noticed a touch of inconsistency with the taste of the beer from time to time. One of my favorite beers to have by the campfire in the summertime! Highly recommend!
