Never had a session IPA. This one coming from a reputed lager loving brewmaster. I poured into a small 60's era Schlitz tapper glass. Nice pour, head fell into a thick creamy top, nice lace on glass.
Nice light amber color, with a light, clean pine resin wiff. The smell is quite complex. Take it deep, smell, and it has a sweet, buttery, honey-like aroma. Really nice, and different. The hop is laid aside.
Taste..first impression, dry, flat bitterness, watery. The beer when first poured looks full of carbonation. It is the opposite, really flat. The first impression is still what I'm getting out of this session. I dont know if I like it, or not. Well this site says a session beer gets better the more you drink, so...2nd beer, dry, flat, bitter, less watery. Very dry on the back of the tongue, a little malt coming through.
Im starting to like this. Was the long lost Ballintines IPA of old like this. A easy drinking lower alcohol brew.
3rd beer..yeah I can see this being a long session of enjoyment. I can enjoy that with a S.N. Celebration Ale, but this goes does easier, and dangerously quicker. Very good. I'm a lager man first, but this is very nice.
Another sweet brew from Wisconsin.

Serving: Bottle into pint
Served: 22 June 2014
Appearance: Pours a very pale yellow with a billowy white head that sticks around for a long time. Minimal to no lacing. If it weren't for the awful piss-yellow color on this one, it would look like a pretty darn good beer.
Smell: Citrus and floral notes. Cascade hops for sure.
Taste: Lots of citrus hoppiness from the Cascades. Not much malt character to speak of. Semi-sweet finish, interestingly with a strange marginally astringent edge to the back end.
Mouthfeel: Extremely thin. High carbonation.
Overall: An okay beer, but nothing special. I would like to see the malts a bit darker, so that it is less painfully obvious that this brewery is making as minimal of a pale malt backbone as possible and then over-hopping to give the beer flavor. A good malt backbone would add just the right amount of requisite backbone to this beer, which is sorely lacking.
