Pours an almost clear medium straw producing 2 fingers of shortlived, white, frothy head that leaves a narrow ring of lace. Aroma is aromatic herbal/floral hop hints & a little sweet caramel malt. Taste is mostly herbal & citrus hops swimming in a moderate caramel malt background with a hint of cabbage/onion. The second session IPA I've had in 2 days with fairly robust flavor for what it is. Mouthfeel is light-moderate bodied, moderate carbonation, creamy & smooth.

Very light golden color. Made me a little apprehensive after the pour for an IPA. Complete change of heart once my nose caught the wonderful smells of fresh fruit and citrus aromas. Flavors of grapefruit, pine, green apple and some wheat. Beautiful balance and nice carbonation. Somewhat dry and light hop finish. I'm a big fan of IPA'S. This is not a traditional IPA, however it was a pleasant surprise. Would be my go to beer for a day at the beach when you plan on drinking more than one.

This is a fantastic sessionable IPA. That same great Lagunitas taste with a lighter mouthfeel and lower ABV.

One of my favorite session IPA's, this beer has enough flavor to curb my craving for something heavier.

Clear, light-yellow beer with a one finger high head that dissapears fast. A little lacing stays on the glass.

Nose: Green apple, pear, grapefruit, grass, pineapple, citrus and crackers.
Taste: Citrus, wheat and pine.
Body: Light body wwith a crisp carbonation. Oily texture.

Easy drinkable Session IPA!

Poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass.

A - 1.75 - Pours a very clear gold. Low head potential and retention. Spotty lacing.
S - 4.5 - Lots of bright, vibrant and juicy tropical fruits. Peaches, mangos, grapefruit, pineapple and hops.
T - 2.5 - Unfortunately, most of the aroma is lost in the taste. Tastes like a basic pilsner with just slightly more hoppiness than a standard domestic brew.
F - 2.5 - Quite thin and watery.
O - 2.5 - Just a little bit too mild for me, even for a session IPA, this is quite light. This would make a good transition beer for someone who only drinks domestic and wants to try something a little stronger, but for an IPA drinker with even a little bit of experience, this won't impress and will be a quite watery, bland IPA.
