3.83/5 rDev +13%
This is a crystal clear pale copper colored beer with a nice airy, frothy head that's a good 3/4ths inch tall. The nose gives moderately abundant citrus hop notes. The taste--actually not all that bitter. Hop flavor is fairly light as well, with grassy, citrus hints. Malt, naturally, is very light. This beer is on the low-end of hoppiness as far as session IPAs go, but it is fairly drinkable.

3.53/5 rDev +4.1%
Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Shaker pint glass. No evident freshness dating. Received in beer-of-the-month club from Tami.
A: Slightly hazy amber with 1-2 finger nearly white, frothy hed with good retention and sheets of lacing down the glass.
S: Dank hops and medium-dark crystal malts, some nutty, woody aromas but not a lot there.
T: The flavor is not an IPA style flavor -- this fits more into the session APA or session amber ale category. The flavor is balanced, but I would say more malt-dominated with medium-dark crystal maltiness and a light orange and grapefruit citrus hoppiness. A little bit of fruity yeast esters. All in all, not bad but not really an IPA in any form.
M: Light-medium body which is amazing given the 4% ABV with light-medium carbonation and pretty dry finish.
O: Not a beer I would seek out but not bad. More fits the session ale (APA or amber, probably more session English IPA or amber IMO) category.
