Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Getting the night started with a session IPA. Why not? This stuff pours a clear straw-brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises light candied lemon peel, mild buttery biscuit, and a kiss of sweet flowers. The taste generally brings in more of the same, though the flavors all seem watered-down to a decent degree. Blandness in spades, unfortunately. The body is a medium light, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly watery feel. Overall, I understand the appeal of lower-alcohol IPAs and such, but examples like this tend to ruin the idea for me. This is just too watery and watered-down for its own good (and definitely for my good). Pass.

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.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, pine, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, hint of alcohol, and a hint of caramel malt. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, pine, sweet malt, slight pale malt, and a hint of caramel malt. Overall, good appearance, but all other aspects are average.

A solid, basic, run of the mill session IPA...nothing jumps out...not tremendously bright or juicy...body fits the style and really this is a decent enough beer....citrus/floral like hopping....not real assertive but nice enough....caramel like malt....pretty balanced....soild..
