3.71/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- pours a slightly hazy pale golden color with a huge foamy and frothy white head that retains long after the pour, eventually leaving some nice lace behind

S- bready and doughy malt aromas mixed with fruity hops

T- slightly toasted malt up front with some fruity and piney hops, slightly tangy fruity kick on the finish with some piney hop linger

M- medium-light body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy and frothy mouthfeel and a crisp dry finish

O- it's hard for me to distinguish the difference between session IPAs and pale ales most of the time, but it's impressive that they were able to pack this much hop bitterness into less than 5%

3.8/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

It pours copper with frothy white head. Smell is hops and a subtle earthiness. Flavor is fresh, floral hops with a clean, not too bitter finish. Honestly, this reminds me why Sierra Nevada was the first craft beer (no etymology wars please :) ) I tried and liked. And it reminds me, although I am a die-hard Belgian ale fan, I was first a fan of IPA's. Mouthfeel is light and soft. Overall, this is a really nice, really approachable version of the style.
