This beer deserves to be reviewed for what it is. It doesn't aim to look up to its older brothers 90 minute and 120 minute. It's content being the lighter session IPA, and I love drinking it.
The beer a golden/orange color with a foamy head that displays fantastic retention and sticky lacing. The smell is complex--the hops provide some citrus and pine aromas, but the malt also adds bread and other scents I couldn't identify. The taste is complex and delicious. The taste is oily from the hops, and yet there's the bread flavor from the malt that reminds me a bit a nice amber ale. And, the yeast adds some additional complexity that challenges my palate (in a good way).
The mouthfeel is on the thinner side, as it needs to be for a session IPA, and the carbonation keeps this crisp without going overboard. Overall, this is easily one of the most drinkable IPAs one can find while still offering an impressive flavor profile. This really is a beer that one could drink any day of the year and not be disappointed. Again, this isn't supposed to compete with the 120 minute IPA for hop flavor, but instead is supposed to offer a great alternative for someone looking for a session beer, and this succeeds wonderfully.
