12oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a thin, soapy white head that quickly fades into a few bubble. No lacing to speak of.

Aroma of juicy tropical fruit with some hefty floral notes thrown in there as well. A touch of grass too. Really quite nice.

The flavor is extremely juicy and mango and passionfruit. More flowers and light hints of grass. There is a very light note of caramel and bread in the background but it is all but covered up by the hops. Moderate bitterness but the mouthfeel is very light and watery as to be expected from such a low-alcohol beer.

I happen to really like the Session IPA style and this beer fits the bill perfectly. Another great beer from this brewery. (720 characters)

pours golden, slightly hazy, short head, leaves good lacing
strong citra hop smell, fresh baked bread smell, a little off, zucchini bread?
citra hops dominate a nicely pale malted ale, clean but tasty.
medium light body, nothing bad
this is a nice well balanced very zen hoppy pale brew (286 characters)

An average to good session ipa. For me I did enjoy it but it falls into the grassy, dandelion and piney sect of the style with a heavy watered down feel and taste. (163 characters)

Very nice session brew from one of my favorite local brewers. Smooth, appropriately hoppy, and, most importantly, very drinkable. Thumbs up! (142 characters)

I'm not a fan of a Session IPA, just hoppy water, but this has a great feel and smoothness. My problem is the hop profile is very chivey and has a touch of onion. Oh, that's not my favorite. So it's not my style and not my hops. (228 characters)
