All I can say is the alcohol contet is the same as bud light or all the other light beers and this beer is a waterfall of flavor! A must try if you can get!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Cloudy yellowish pour, a finger of soapy white head, solid lacing.

Citra bomb aroma,very fruity,very tropical, very hop forward aroma.

Taste not quite as bright and bouncy as the nose (was likely vigorously dry hopped) with lots of juicy citra hop character, grapefruit and tangerine.

Mouthfeel is relatively light and somewhat thin, fully realizing this is meant to be a "session" beer (that conflicts with the brand name, which is difficult to build up a session's worth of bottles), some of the entries I've had from Cali deliver a bit more in this department in recent months.

My main reason for writing this review on SS#1 (Citra) is that others are writing/posting recent reviews for "super session" #2 (Amarillo) and #3 (Sorachi Ace) under the Citra version listed above.The problem lies in LFL not differentiating the hop variety as all 3 varieties have shared the same label that doesn't state the name of the hop being featured (and that will likely be the case with the Galaxy and Mosaic Super Session to be released). The end result is a clusterf#ck of reviews for the Citra version (which hasn't been out in 2 months) when folks are actually sampling the more recent Amarillo or Sorachi Ace offerings.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Fresh bottle pour--
A: Cloudy straw yellow, merengue-like head, no sediment

S: Not abundant-- faint smell of hops, lemon oil, and ginger

T: Crisp flavor of hops, a hint of lemon, mango and ginger. Mild bitter finish with minimal malt characteristics.

M: good carbonation, oily

O: A really fine, if understated, easy drinking ale. I could easily drink several of these without getting fatigued... Another winner from Lawson's and Vermont!
