One of the better session IPAs I've had, which is no small feat based on my suspicion of the style. Big old citric nose, and a tangy hoppy palate. Easily compares with the best American versions of the style. (208 characters)

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

Appearance - Very pale streaming gold in colour with a big rock white foam head with what is best described as so, so retention.

Smell - Pine, passion fruit with pineapple dominate the nose of this fruity brew. There are also floral and grassy notes to be found in here too.

Taste - This one is dominated by a fruity front. Grapefruit, Passion fruit, Pineapple along with blood orange. The blood orange bitter end is strong and the pine element to the hop is also very pleasing.

Mouth feel - Crisp fresh sparkling and heavy on the linger.

Overall - Very tasty and well enough balanced for a style that is famously lacking in the balance department. (653 characters)

Has a hazy, peach-straw color, with a huge, bubbly head.

Lemony aromas fill the room just after opening the can. Offers up an intense, hop driven, citrus infused dankness. Incredibly rich on the citrus, accompanied by mango and kiwi, putting together a fruity, hop forward nose.

Has a light body, with a citrussy, dough mouthfeel, finishing with refreshing, crisp lemony hops.

Tastes of bready malts, amped up by a slightly prickly, lively carbonation, introducing bitter, citraic hops to the palate. Produces a very refreshing appearance, with hops converting into a leavy direction during the finish, while still being heavy on the citrus, together with a mineralic, fitting aqueous quality.

Fantastic, light and refreshing session Ipa, while delivering a convincing taste diversity, with just the right amount of hops in it. (834 characters)

Solid session ale - pours a light yellow to golden in color with a thin head and lacing. Juicy citrus and lemon with well enough pronounced hops. Goes down very easily. (168 characters)

Poured from the can a clear yellow colour. Aromas of citrus, hops, lemon and grapefruit. Like the title says, this is a 'session IPA.' Flavours are mild, making this a sessionable ale. Citrus hops and light malts are well balanced, with the malt back fading away with only a smooth hop body left to finish it out.

Would I buy this beer again? Yes. (351 characters)

A 330ml can with a BB of Feb 2015. Acquired a little while back from Trembling Madness in York. Described as a session IPA; I love the bizarre artwork.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. A hazy golden hue with fine sediment and medium carbonation. Produces a massive head of creamy white foam with good retention; this slowly reduces to a thick surface layer. Nice lacing.

S: Aroma of bountiful fruitiness with hints of grapefruit, lime, citrus, white grape, mild melon, tropical fruits, subtle grass, light malt and earthy yeast. Delicious.

T: Tastes of wonderfully fruity aromatic hops with a crisp, bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lime, citrus, white grape, melon, tropical fruits, grass/hay, subtle grainy malt, earthy yeast and mild stewed hops. Well-attenuated, followed by a stinging hop-driven bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with pleasant carbonation and decent body. Hop oils tantalise the palate. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of citrus, bitter aromatic hops, earthy yeast and faint malt.

O: Fantastic - an amazingly hoppy brew that goes down a treat. Looks lovely, while the aroma and flavour are superb. Lashings of citrus and fruity hop notes backed up by subtle malt and yeast. Good body; perhaps a shade too thin. Wonderful, and demonstrates that IPAs don't have to be herculean in strength to deliver. An excellent brew - don't pass it up if you have the chance to try it. (1,462 characters)

Drank at its original brewery home.
Hazy amber color with a head that keeps a constant ring and leave some laces.
Predominant aroma of tropical fruits and sweet peaches.
Flavor is a festival of tropical fruits, papaya, peaches, passion fruit and pineapples on a base of slightly toasted malts. Hints of pine and honey. Dry aftertaste with a pleasant long bitterness.
Medium body with low carbonation.
Smooth and flavorful beer, very fruity, a nice surprise. (457 characters)
