Thanks to Sanderson for another IPA from a brewery that I’ve already had two good ones from; so expectations are not muted. 12 oz. can. No reviews yet? Really?

The pour is a clear light yellow. Nose is a lovely honeyed floral tea. Very nice.

Life Jacket…my kids mocked me not three weeks ago in the canoe when I called my PFD a life jacket.
This shares the weakness of so many ‘session’ IPAs in that it can’t hide the underlying water; this tastes like you could rehydrate with it after a run. Otherwise it follows the nose faithfully: light honey, slight Earl Grey (or whatever, I couldn’t tell Earl Gray from Lipton – those are both teas, right?), mild mid-palate bitterness. Certainly easy to drink, but drying, not at all like a cold glass of water. Very clean.

Brewed very true to the made-up style, this is smooth with a capital S. Pretty good beer.

Solid IPA from 7 seas. Strong aroma and descent hop presence.
