look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle poured into Pilsner glass.

Paired w/ Spicy Thai food.

Appearance of a nice golden color w/ white head and strong lacing.

I was expecting it to be more hoppy than it actually was...Maybe the fact that it's "Sessionable". Nice, mellow, hoppiness to it, and wasn't quite as piney as some of the other over-the-top hoppy beers I've had in the past. Nice carbonation, and light/medium body.

This is a decent first experience with WBC's brews. Looking forward to trying some more of their beers.

3.3/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

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.

3.36/5  rDev +8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours deep golden with a white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of citric and floral notes.

The taste is of a general hop bitterness mixed in with malt sweetness. Pine juice, aspirin and a hint of honey in the finish. Dryness lingers more than taste.

Rather thin for an IPA, though I suppose that that, along with the more modest abv level, makes it more "sessionable".

This, to me, is more of an APA that leans towards the hoppy side. Doesn't stand out as particularly noteworthy, especially in the taste, but it's not bad if you want some hops with lower abv.
