Thanks hophound for this one.

Well, I liked this one pretty well as a standard American IPA, but then I read that they are describing it as a West Coast IPA...Hmmm not quite.
From their website:

"The beer is a drinkable West Coast IPA. It pours a golden amber with a big white head. It has a big citrusy nose with a slight note of fresh oranges.

Malty and sweet up front. Lighter bodied than might be expected. The hop bitter, orange peel and hop flavor seem to all kick in at the finish. Remarkably easy to drink for an IPA with the orange notes more of a secret ingredient than a dominant flavor."

Poured golden amber as stated. I did get some orange on the nose. Some in the taste as well. Enough malt to let me know it was there, but...
Well the slightly bready malt is present along with orange and slightly grass-leaning hops that tease in the resin direction. The finish is a bit light, and yes it's pretty smooth.

Pretty good. But can this be BOTH a WEST COAST IPA AND A SESSION IPA? That's what they seem to be saying. Take the West Coast descriptor off and it's a pretty good IPA.
