Easy IPA is very dry and bitter as compared to other all day ipas. Pours a clear yellow with white head that is leaving some lace. Bitter hops steal the nose and dominates the taste, although there are hints of citrus on the back end of the draw. Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a decent beer.

rating this one not as an individual beer in isolation, but against the crowded world of session ipas. this is pretty weak in comparison, although not a bad beer at all, it just doesnt have that defining element. not even close. a very blonde beer that smells of pilsener malt and not much more. some citrus forward hops in the flavor, but its more bitterness than anything else, and really pretty average all up. the hops do nothing new, and dont have all that much flavor. meanwhile the grain is more intrusive than it needs to be in taste, but super light in body to the point of almost being watery. carbonation is awesome though, and at the very least the beer is refreshing enough. i need more interesting hops, and i need a little more integration of the elements. its the same slightly off yeast profile i always get from these guys too, like they ferment everything a few degrees to warm. not a bad beer, but weak on the spectrum of american craft session ipa.

3/15/15 (Bottle) -Golden slightly brown pour, mild carbonation, nominal aroma. Nice taste of citrus and hops, somewhat bitter but pleasant. Feel medium build, nice carbonation and kick despite low ABV. Overall good beer.

Surprisingly tasty. Was looking for a good but lighter ABV IPA and this is just what this beer delivers. After rating another Flying Dog on the low side I felt I should try another one in their lineup. Glad I did. Very nice citrus scent especially of grapefruit with a very on point IPA taste. Thumbs up to this one.

Nice clear gold with head full of randomly sized bubbles. Head receded to a ring which scattered splotchy lace on the glass.

Mild aromas of citrous hit my schnozz.

Taste was a heavy duty (for a 4.7 beer) grapefruit hops punch in the palate.

More body here than you might think with just the right amount of carbonation.

I could drink this all day. Good stuff!

Luckily tonight I am in the mood for lower ABV alternatives since I don't usually get session IPA's.

A - A very bright shade of yellow with no tint of orange or brown. Head is also minimal with just a 1/4 inch that sits to a mild lace ring.
S - Has some hop bitterness herbal yet citrus like. Good malt balance with no offensive odors.
T - Mild twang of bitter hops, good malt balance and as expected a bit light on flavor.
M - Has a good body for a session IPA not watery but decent.

Overall it's good and I am glad I picked on up.
