4.24/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a nice orangy straw color, with a nice head. Pretty clear. Very nice looking beer! Smell is moderate hoppiness; citrus, a bit of skunk... The taste follows suit; very clean, crips, not a lot of malt, but enough. Nice hoppiness. It's quintessential session ipa and one of the better ones. It's a tad thin, but virtually all beers in this style are. Overall, a great, refreshing beer with low abv and good hop flavor. As always, since its abv is below 7%, it's getting mediocre ratings on here, but it deserves better. If you like "session ipa's", you will like this one.

Consumed 8/23/14

A: Honey colored with some orange and gold - pours with a small, white head, fades to a small cap, leaves some decent streaks of lacing

S: Very nice, above average for a session IPA - bright citrus hop profile with orange, tangerine, and some grapefruit flesh - some zest and floral citrus - low sweetness, very pale malts, very light overall

T: Hop soda - nice hoppy flavors match up with the aroma - tangerine, orange, and grapefruit - medium level of bitterness - maybe some melon, too - somewhat juicy, very bright - extremely pale, lightly bready malts, virtually no sweetness

M: Light body, nicely carbonated, extremely easy to drink

O: Being this good is not easy

This is the best "session" IPA I've had. As usual, it's not fair to compare it to a "real" IPA, but it's remarkable for what it is. If Firestone Walker puts this in cans, I would probably keep this stocked all summer.

Pale yellow with a fluffy white foam head. Bread, oranges, and herbal in the nose. Light-bodied, grapefruit, citric, grassy, tannic, orange rinds with a dry, mineral finish. Packed with flavor and extremely drinkable.

A very solid session beer for those looking for light and hoppy.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw yellow with a medium creamy white head that goes to a thin film, leaves a little lacing and then almost disappears.

The aroma is very subdued - slightly vegetative, piney, resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with some spicy, peppery, piney hops. The mouthfeel is light bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, an OK blandish session IPA. There's almost no nose, it's pretty thin, the flavors are OK but it's a bit on the sweet side.

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

Appearance: 1 inch head, gold in color, high carbonation, clear

Smell: tangerines and tropical fruits

Taste: tangerine, toasted malt, orange, light grapefruit and pine

Mouthfeel: slightly bitter, light bodied with high carbonation

Overall: A nice, citrusy and light IPA. I like other beers from Firestone Walker better, but if I am looking for a nice IPA to sip, I will reach for this.
