look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

A - Can dated 6/9/2014 - less than a month old. Took a couple pulls straight from the can then poured the rest into a 10oz tasting glass. Slightly hazy dark gold. Thick white head leaves moderate lacing.

S - Not picking up much. When the can was first popped I got a big dose of earthy hops, but not in the glass I'm getting light malt, and even lighter hops.

T - Makes up for the smell. Not as much hops as I would'v expected even for a "session" IPA. The malt is very powerful. An unobstructed view to the caramel, malty sweetness. Bitterness creeps back in between sips.

M - Best feature of the brew. Drinks like an IPA. Most sessions are too light. This is nicely thick for the style. Medium carb. Lingers on the palate.

O - This is a good not great brew. Worth trying it out.

Serving type: can

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a tulip, this one is a crisp and clear gold with a thin film of head.

Smells of dry, toasty caramel with an ambiguous woody hop. A little discouraging.

Tastes of dirty pine hops with a touch of malt that is reminiscent of cheap basement beer. The hops are pleasant enough to make this work.

Feels clean and big with a very complimentary carbonation.

Not the best example of the style, but still extremely drinkable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Can dated 5/12/14 (so just over a month old) into an IPA glass—thanks HopSynonymous (who based on other reviews must be a pusher of this stuff or something).

Look: pale yellow, active carbonation, with a giant fluffy head that dissipates to a thin film after a minute.

Smell: bursting with tropical citrus fruits—not the biting citrus of Sucks, but sweeter fruits like mango. A hint of marshmallow.

Taste: follows the aroma, but with a bite of bitterness, and a slightly watery flavor. Some weak malts. Maybe a hint of a smoky or woody note.

Feel: light body, a bit thin, and fairly dry. Doesn't quite deliver on the smoothness I expected given the creamy head, but it's not bad.

Overall: if this is classified as a session IPA, then it's probably the best I've had; that being said, even if this were on shelves near me, I doubt I'd get it that often, when I could bump up a few %abv and get something a lot richer in flavor.
