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

Appearance: Copper golden color with a semi frothy one finger off white head

Smell: Bright citrus, pine, tropical, grassy, honey biscuit malt

Taste: Zesty citrus (lemon, grapefruit, orange), pine, grassy, bitter. Slight pale malt, but could use more

Mouthfeel: Heavy light body; Smooth with a moderately bitter finish

Overall: Someone please tell me the difference between a pale ale and a session ipa. Anyways, I prefer this over Founders All Day and Stone's Go To. Its light and has plenty of citrus hops but not overly so and bitter like Go To or too malty like All Day. They found a nice balance with this one just like Head Hunter. It also helps that I usually get Fat Head's beers within a week or two of bottling. Between this, Head Hunter, and JUJU, they're amongst the leading breweries in the world when it comes to IPAs! However, I think $12 a six pack is a little steep for a session ipa, and may as well grab Head Hunter over this every time.

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

Slightly hazy, orange-gold in colour with a decent head.

Very forward with sweet citrusy hop notes of clementine. Only slightly piney with a lightly sweet malt backbone.

The taste begins sweet, citrusy and refreshing. The light malt backbone probably contributes to the very orange-y sweetness that carries throughout the drier, slightly resinous finish.

Light mouthfeel but more toward the medium side of things, with a nice carbonation.

Overall a very refreshing and flavourful session ale.
