On draft at The Ginger Man, NYC.

Poured a light brassy hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The snell featured a juicy soft citrus and light doughiness.

The taste offered upfront citric and herbal hips with shots of pine and white pepper as well. A nice smooth malt rounded out the flavor.

The mouthfeel was typical of the session IPA with a lingering bitterness.

Overall a very tasty and über hoppy session.

Serving type: on-tap

Can dated 6/12/14

Hazy yellow golden pour with good head retention. Light, sweet fruity aromas of orange citrus and mango with a background of pine. Very pleasant fresh hop taste that is a nice combination of citrus, floral and pine. There is a nice bitter bite on the back end but still very light. The only off flavor is a bit of soapiness. Very light mouthfeel on the watery side. Light but creamy carbonation. This is excellent for a "session" IPA. The can says its crushable and does not lie. It may be watery and even a bit soapy, but it offers excellent fresh hop flavors in a lower alcohol, pleasant and easy drinking beer.

3.24/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance - Deep Gold, Head about 1 inch, and a lot of lacing
Smell - citrus (grapefruit and lemon citrus), sweet malt smell, and piney hops. So good!
Taste - Citrus (grapefruit and lemon), followed by herbal hops, and a sweeter malt flavor. Very smooth and easy to drink. Also, I'm getting something that is slightly soapy.
Overall - For some reason, I was getting a slight soap quality. Not strong but faint. my glass was clean. But also, Im still new to evaluating beers, so I'm not sure what it was exactly. That's what put me off.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12 oz. Can into Tulip glass.

A: Bright orange/yellow. Large frothy white head. Good retention and decent lacing.

S: Strong juicy citrus. Fresh bright hops. Tropical. Mild malts.

T/M: Juicy tropical citrus. Pine and herbal hops. Bitter but not to the extreme. Crisp
and easy to drink. Balanced well with malts. Some light grains pop up. Hop bitterness
lingers in the aftertaste.

O: Great session IPA. Easily one of the better ones. The taste is strong and flavorful yet
the beer has an easy laid back juicy feel to it. It's also balanced better than other session
IPA's I've had. Great for summer or whenever.

Cheers!!

Drank it out of the can. Aroma was citrus fruit, grapefruit, citrus hops, lemon zest, grains and bread/malt. Hops were not very strong, but the grapefruit bitterness showed through the most. Tastes of grapefruit, floral hops, lemon, citrus hops, malt, light caramel, herbs and very mild floral spices. Subdued hop flavor which seems to match the session IPA style, but it had enough flavor to make it sessionable and relatively tasty. Mouthfeel is very light, crisp and almost watery, with a light body, mild carbonation and a slightly bitter finish with hints of grapefruit that trails off dry. Not as much flavor as the Founder's All Day IPA or Firestone Walker Easy Jack, but a decent beer that's perfect for drinking at a summer party. I drank 4 of these tonight, it's a definite session beer and easy to drink.
