Toasty aroma with a mildly spicy hop presence.
Amber but just a little murky. Nice dense tan head.
Soft bittering right away and the lingering is not too intense either and pleasant as well. Enjoyable complexity to the hop flavors and not classic styles. Stronger malt presence than many and less sweet too, yet clearly stated.
Moderate feel and nicely carbonated.
Again, if drinkability was still listed this would be high. A nice beer of lower alcohol and good enjoyable flavors.

Pours a brownish copper with a thin layer of head. There was some nice lace on the glass in spite of the thin head. The earthy hop nose might be the best part of this offering. Carmel malts are upfront in the flavor profile, but overall the taste is fairly light. The finish is pleasantly hoppy.

I'd call this a solid APA, but the brewer considers it a "sessionable" IPA. In that case, it falls a bit short.

Had this on 2013-07-21 in Maple Grove, MN

A - Pretty clear golden-amber with a 1.4-finger off-white head and moderate lacing.

S - Light floral hops and faint sweet malt. Somehow reminds me of a lightly-perfumed soap. Pretty mild.

T - Lightly roasted malt, tea, tangerine flesh and zest. Finishes dry with moderate lingering bitterness. Quite balanced until the very end. Would have liked more flavor on the front and middle of the tongue.

M - Light body and light-medium carbonation.

O - Tasty for a lower ABV brew but nowhere near as dramatic as a 21st Amendment Bitter American or a Founders All Day IPA. Decent price though. A nice summer thirst quencher in a pinch.
