4.05/5  rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Poured out a clear light golden one finger white head. Tones of carbonation streaming up from the the bottom.

S - The nose is a beautiful mango, grapefruit, sweet smelling brew. This is really appealing.

T - I get a light dose of hops bitterness, with a pine flavor, slight mango, slight grapefruit, a sweet malt backbone to balance it out. Pretty light on the flavor here, and the flavor fades fast and does not stick around like most IPA's. Makes you want to drink more. I could slam this but will not because it is really nice and light.

M - Light bodied easy drinking beer that is highly carbonated which gives this a nice crisp feel.

O - This is a definite session ale which drinks nice and goes down really easy. Not sure if the hop flavor really lives up to a traditional IPA coming in weaker than the standard. It does however have a really nice smell on it and it is a definite great session brew. Well done, I can see myself session these from time to time. Cheers!

3.76/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

I think it's a stretch to call this an IPA, even a session one. From the nose and the taste, it's really (IMO) a hybrid of an American pale ale and a German pilsner. Nice light golden color, slightly hazy, with vibrant head. Lots of carbonation. Hop aroma runs the gamut from citrus to tropical to grassy. Definitely not complaints there. Mouthfeel is thin, which is exactly what you want in this type of beer. Taste is heavy on what tastes like pilsner malt, with light grassy/floral hoppiness.

All in all, a solid offering thats super refreshing and perfect for the summer. Certainly worth picking up a six pack, just not quite what I was expecting.
