Picked up a growler at the brewery yesterday at the release after enjoying a few pints. Growler poured into my new sandy & bruce snifter (july 22, 2012 - thanks phil!)
a - brew has really nice transparent soft yellow with hints of orange. Looks lush and rich. Nice finger of foamy bubbly head that didn't hang too long, but left islands of bubbles and large spots of lacing on the glass. Swirling the glass brought it all back to life in a single swirl and some visible carbonation could be seen dancing to the surface of the brew at a slow steady pace.
s - nose is ipa...all day. Soft but bright citric notes and hints of tropical fruit. Smells like an ipa should...with even some nice sweet candy notes on the finish of a big whiff. Really nice.
t - taste is fairly bold for such a sessionable brew. Big tropical fruit notes leading with citric and an almost tangerine vibe. Sift bitterness on the finish.
m - mouth is a bit watery but still medium bodied and what i would expect from a session ipa. I could drink this one all day though!
o - overall, this is one of the better offerings to come from gsb. Kind of like a field 5 lite but nowhere as dank. This can totally hang with all day ipa and for me, i prefer this over all day. Really nice to see the local guys hitting it hard. Keep an eye on gsb in 2014, some really great stuff a brewing out in bayshore. Keep up the good work. Local boys done great! Very much worth checking out. Cant wait for bottles to hit shelves!

Lovely golden straw color with a sizable head and a goodly amount of lacing. Some carbonation steaming up. Retention is dent but the beer stays covered all the way down. Nose has a grew combination of earthy hops and sweet light malt. I'm guessing pilsner by the color and lovely bread notes mixed with honey. There is a hint of pine and mint as well. Taste is superb with a hoppy front that peels back to reveal a solid malt grain and bread core. Finish is dry, firmly hopped, and a little long, leaving a blend of earth and light citrus with lingering hop oiliness. This is a perfect weight with a crispish carbonation that might be just a little soft, but it's not bothering me. Lowish abv means more glasses to enjoy and with the flavor of this one enjoyment is quite high! My first from this brewery and what a treat.

Pours a golfs straw color with some honey highlights. Big frothy white head that settles into a puffy cap and sweet webby lacing.
The aroma is light but has a nice grapefruit hop scent. Slight grass. Not much from the malt.
Very light malt flavor, almost watery but no off adjuncty flavors. More of a grassy hop but does have some citrus and a dry bitterness. Not much else going on but that is ok. It's a session IPA.
The feel is light and has weak carbonation so it feels lighter than it is. Nice bitterness in the finish.
A good but not great session IPA. Not quite as flavorful as All Day IPA. Could use more active carbonation. I would buy these again as it has nice flavor and drinks well

On draft at the brewery.
Poured a hazy brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was Goid retention and lacing.
The smell featured a light citrusy zest with a touch of pine.
The taste offered a vibrant citric hop with a secondary pine atop a grainy pale malt.
The mouthfeel was light with a vigorous carbonation.
Overall a tasty and super quaffable hop experience.
