Pours a clear yellow... I'd have trouble picking this out of a crowd of "Lite" beers if it weren't for the fluffy white head and strong sticky lacing.

The aroma is the best thing this beer has going for it. Big fruity hop aromas make you think this is could be a real IPA. (Spoiler Alert: It's not.)

The taste is much like the smell, but toned way down. The bitterness really overpowered the hop flavors for me, and the whole thing was way too thin. Every time I took a sip I was wondering where my beer went.

Overall, it's a decent brew that lives up to it's name as a session IPA. It's not something I would reach for again, though. If you're staring at the window of your local store and looking for something light to bring to the BBQ I recommend reaching for Stone's, Southern Tier's or Founders' interpretations on the style way before this one.

Poured from a bottle into a pub glass.
Appearance - about as clear as you can get. Tons of champagne carbonation that forms a big, thick white head. Nice lacing.
Smell - crisp, clean citrus hop nose!
Taste - refreshing and obviously light. Follows the nose nicely.
Feel - hop forward and refreshing, but too light for me.
Overall - I'm having this in CO in Feb...I'd rather have it in July. Still a very good beer!
