look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a: extremely clear straw yellow color with a 3 finger frothy uneven white head

s: oniony garlicy hop smell right away. pineapple, mango, apricot, and a nice fresh grassy aroma. also a chewy sweet malt backbone. i suppose there is some of what people like to call 'cat piss' in here as well. cheezing balls over here

t: its very mild and smooth. it follows the nose in a very mellow way. its juicy pineapple/mango and tropical fruit, with some of that garlicy flavors as well. still picking up some of the chewy malts in the backgrounds - its a very light toffee flavor. ends same as the nose, fresh and grassy. slight grapefruit bitterness

m: its a lighter mouthfeel, but as mentioned, its a bit chewy.

o: this is my first session ipa, and i'm a fan. its the same as a normal ipa, just mellow. i don't want to say watered down - because thats not right, and incorrect. everything is just slightly toned down. this has a good balance of malt, juicy fruits, and just the slightest cut of bitterness. this actually reminds me of a toned down Flower Power

Appearance is light yellow golden with slightest bit of a haziness with frothy white head dissipating slowly. Sweet bright citrusy floral hop aromas very inviting and fruity, tangerine undertones to it. Hoppy spicy bite on tongue to a fruitiness mid sip to bready smooth finish. Tastes of orange, grassy hops and some sort of berry bread. Mouthfeel is light to medium with crisp carbonation and a dry finish. Tasty brew, a lot of flavor for such low abv.

Bottled Jan. 20 2014.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip.

a: Clear gold with a finger thick white head which receded quickly to fairly even thin surface foam and moderate lacing.

s: Medium citrus.

t: Quite strong citrus hops up front over a light malt base. Bitterness is pronounced on the palate and tongue. Bitter finish.

m: Light to moderate.

o: A hop-dominated low ABV IPA. Good summer brew if hops bitterness is your thing. I prefer Lagunitas regular IPA over this, and Sucks way over both of them. Their hop bite is easier to take and more pleasantly citrusy than here, and their malt bases are significantly more substantial.

Poured an attractive clear golden color with a thin head of white foam that quickly dissipated to a
ring of white leaving some lacing down the glass. It looks light for an IPA, but otherwise looks quite good. Scents of citrus peel, pine resin, cedar, and faint grassy aromas. A good, hop-dominated, West Coast IPA style aroma. Very nice. Flavor begins with a big burst of hop flavor, with bitter citrus peel, citrus pith, pine resin, and some grapefruit rind and grassy hop flavors that become more prominent towards the finish. Finish is hops, grassy and grapefruit rind as noted above, but with a little bit of grainy malt showing through. Aftertaste is hop bitterness. A very hop forward flavor, infact almost entirely hops, with very little malt presence at all. Still very good as a hop forward beer. Mouthfeel is light bodied and slightly watery, with a resiounous and semi-drying feel and moderate carbonation. Quite easy to drink as a result, very much feels like a session ale should. Overall this is an excellent session ale and light beer with a bold, hop-forward flavor and aroma that puts it a cut above any light lager offerings. While not quite as good as a full fledged IPA, it is a nice warm weather beer and an excellent session offering. On those merits its worth drinking regularly.
