4.11/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: 4.25 Slightly hazy, pale gold with a two-inch off-white head that dissipates rather quickly.

S: 4.25 Lots of citrusy hops (mostly grapefruit) with some dank and pine in there as well.

T: 4 Similar to the nose, but toned down a bit. There’s much more bready malt on the palate than expected. Malt adds a bit of sweetness that goes well with the grapefruit flavors. Very little hop bitterness.

M: 4 A little on the thin side, but considering that this is a session IPA it’s quite nice. Very refreshing and easy to throw back a couple.

O: 4.25 I really enjoy how much hop flavor and aroma are delivered in such an easy drinking beer. Not a lot going on and not going to blow your mind with hops or complexity, but still a very flavorful, refreshing beer.

The key to my beer heart when it comes to session ales, comes down to a simple ratio:

Lowest ABV:Most Taste

To me a session beer needs to stick to its guns and keep the booze light, but keep the taste heavy. This one is almost there. The ABV is relatively low (4.65%) and the taste is good. It's nice and hoppy, but that taste is gone almost right after you send it down your thirsty gullet. It doesn't quite live up to that nice dank smell you get out of the bottle, but I think it's a keeper nonetheless. While I'm certain there are probably heavier tasting sessions' out there, I think the taste bang is right for the ABV buck.
