From the 650 ml. bottle dated Jan 2014. Sampled on March 16, 2014 so reasonably fresh.
The pour is a cloudy golden amber color with a quick white head that becomes a ring for the remainder of the session.
The aroma has a short burst of toasted biscuit malts but then the four hops that are used to brew this really kick in and emit a floral, grassy scent.
Light body mostly but also smooth.
Like the taste, the flavor evolves from a quick introduction of caramel and biscuit malts to an explosion of citrus and biter hops that linger quite some time at the finish. Smuttynose says they do not want to call this a session beer but in the end that's what it is.

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.
Full on sticky frothing, mildly dull golden hue. Citrus pith and wild flowers with some biscuity malt make for a very aromatic nose. Snappy crispness in a fluffy body. Assertive hoppiness start to finish, bitterness is pretty sharp but lets the malt make camp. Underlying breadiness. Lots of citrus rind with a yeasty earthiness.
Super hoppy session beer, fun to knock back if you are into intensely hoppy beers.

Had a pint at Cannibal in Kips Bay. Love me a lower ABV pale. I'd believe you if you said it's a session IPA, but it's not quite burying with hops like Stone Go To or Founders All-Day, however. The aroma is a bit subdued, it's lacking a big pop of hops, but does have a pleasant mix of bready malt and citrus. The flavor picks up the hops with a cutting grapefruit bitterness and light grassy and pine notes. It's a simpler profile, but clean and tasty. The body is also on the lighter side for the style, in the neighborhood of a great session beer.
