4.23/5  rDev +5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a hazy goldenstraw color capped by a snow white head of foam that leaves lovely swathes of lace

Smell: Pink grapefruit, tangelo and a hint of peaches and cream

Taste: Just a hint of fresh baked bread on the front end and then the hops take over, bringing delicate citrus and a hint of peaches and cream, in the middle; the finish is dry and the flavor fades a bit, but the cream lingers a bit, adding complexity

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: I am ecstatic when I find good session beers and I imagine a delicate one like this one needs to be consumed very fresh; as it was just released last weekend, I was excited to taste it

Thanks, Denzo, for the opportunity

First had on tap at ProPig, but this review is from the bottle.

Poured into a Lawson's becher, hazy, bright amber color, with a half inch of white head that sank to a ringlet, and laced the glass generously. Nice aroma full of pine and citrus, fresh hops. For a lower ABV brew, this beer is loaded with flavor, crisp, citrus hops, pine needles, some light sugary sweetness, and a bready pale malt base. Pretty much everything a good IPA should be, at a super sessionable ABV. Light-medium body, crisp, super drinkable. Drink this fresh and cold! I'm almost sorry I didn't get more than 2 bottles of it.

a style of beer I would love to see more of, this brew from lawsons should be the blueprint. if these were available super cheap, I think water, orange juice, tea, and other staple beverages would fall out of my diet entirely. an average looking pour, pale and popping off with soda-like carbonation that helps a two finger white lacey head build. the nose on it is really fresh zesty hops, has to be citra or sorachi ace. there is so much lemon and tangerine to this that im not sure what other varieties it could be. the flavor is exactly like the orange starburst from the tropical flavors light blue pack. sweet and citrusy, fresh as anything, perfect. there is a surprising degree of light malt balance to this, as its not just all hops the whole way through. low on bitterness, its actually a grassy cleanness that washes through the finish. my bottle said 3.8% abv, not 3.3% as listed, but I found it to be just right. light enough to drink it down and be refreshed, but sturdy enough to still be a beer really. light body, fantastic carbonation, and an overall level of satisfaction that is extremely high. if I end up spending my summer in the champlain valley, I will be hammering this stuff.

Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul.

Copper orange body with a half inch of head. Aromas include a bouquet of citrus and tropical fruits. Flavor is more of the same with pineapple, orange, mango, finishing with grapefruit zest. Citrus rind and lingering bitter finish. Thin body, but that's to be expected in a >4% session IPA. Refreshing and easy drinking. Good stuff.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden orange. Nice white head. Good surface foam.

Smell - Piney grassy hops. Not much else. But it smells very good.

Taste - Again hop forward. Grass and pine. Just a bit of grainy malt. Simple, light, and good. Medium low bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Light, medium carbonation. Very drinkable.

Overall - Excellent light IPA. Hop forward with just enough malt. Lingering hop flavor is the only thing that bugs me.
