A- Clear pale straw colored body with a frothy bone-white head. Could easily be mistaken for a light beer.

S- Any sign of a light beer vanishes with the nose. Huge piney hop aromas with some citrus, sweet malt and a note of fresh grass. Very nice aroma.

T- Hops continue to come through in the taste, with pine being at the forefront. Malt comes though slightly on the back end with a bitter finish.

M- Medium-high carbonation with a light-medium body. Very refreshing and very drinkable.

O- Impressive IPA even without knowing the abv. The fact that this can be sessioned is an added bonus.

A: Pours a perfectly clear pale gold. Big fizzy white head. Fades at a moderate pace, leaving lots of bit fluffy tufts of lacing behind.

S: Really nice citrusy and tropical fruit hops. Get orange and pineapple mainly it seems. Malt seems to bring a bit of toasted bread. Wonderfully crisp and sharp aroma, especially for such a weak ABV brew.

T: Again, more citrus and tropical fruit up front, mildly sweet. Not a typical caramel malt in the middle, it's more of a toasted bread than anything. Biscuity, to be specific. Finish is more biscuit and some grassiness with touches of tropical fruits and citrus. Not overly bitter but there's definitely a nice bite to it.

M: Light bodied, simple.

O: A really nice sessionable IPA. Has a prominent hop bite up front but not overpowering. Crisp and tasty. Drinkable and smooth.

12oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint.

A - Straw golden and one shade short of brilliant. Moderate sized white head falls to a small cap after while. Left me with a couple small spots of lacing.

S - Strong pine edge to the hops. Background of fresh citrus hops. Faint little bit of graininess.

T - Any sign of malt is swallowed up quickly. Big hop flavors come through with some melon tones to them but also prickly pine. Moderate bitterness is smooth and bright. Hop flavor lasts for a short stint after finish.

M - Medium carbonation, medium to medium-light body, dry.

O - Very sessionable IPA. Light color is a nice twist. Every bit of smell a good American IPA has. Big on flavor lighter on bitterness. Very easy drinking and great for a hot summers day.

Very clear light golden, not much head to speak of. Aromas and flavors are very herbal and flowery. Really the hop's game here. Light and fizzy. A lick of citrus with each sip. For a second, I thought this beer was called EveryDay. That's what it could be called. It's absolutely phenomenal and I want to drink it all day long.

12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Dec. 2, 2012 (purchased the 6-pack for $9.99 at Plaza Wine & Spirits in Mira Mesa (San Diego) on Dec. 2, 2012. Golden pale with about a finger of white head with a pretty weak retention all-around.

Very good smell right from the get-go. Got sharp bitter hops right away, giving way to floral hops. Original hops seemed to be citrus with grapefruit, orange and pine coming in.

Tasted a lot like the smell, but not as potent. Got the bitter hops up front - grapefruit, orange, tangerine and pine.

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.

A very good beer from a very good brewery. No surprise here.

12oz bottled August 22nd 2012. Served at around 40F.

Pours mostly clear, ever so slightly hazy gold with a two finger white head that recedes to a nice cap and leaves pretty drippy rings of lacing behind.

Aroma is citrus, primarily lemon, floral hops, light bready malt. Very good strength. Simple, but effective.

Flavor follows suit with juicy lemon hops, a little grapefruit and orange, hint of pine, bready/cracker malt which is light and unobtrusive, nice bitterness, no alcohol. Finishes dry and light.

Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied, a little sticky, good carbonation.

IMO they nailed it on this one. Really nice hop aroma and flavor, good bitterness, but keepin’ the alcohol low, making for a very tasty Session IPA. Even at 3 months old it’s still got big aroma and flavor. Nice.
