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!

Definition of a session beer. The name says it all.
