This IPA is a dark yellow with a translucency that's close to opaque. It develops a thick, rocky, foamy pure white head that rises to one finger in height and shows moderate retention. It doesn't take too long to fall but leaves a strong layer on top for the full session and drops heavy lacing behind.
There's lots of a pithy, woody sort of bitterness to this IPA, with some herb and perhaps grassy notes along with a perfumey overtone. It flashes some malty sweetness in the middle, something somewhat bready with just a ghost of honey before the herb and wood kick back in.
The body is medium, leaning light but with heft and depth. There's plenty of consistent crispness biting nicely but not taking away from the softness. There's a very nice flowing creaminess that rides right along with the bite all the way.

Bottle from Sully's
Crystal clear solid golden color with a good sized bone white head that shows moderate retention. Huge grapefruit and lemon citrus on the nose backed up by hints of earth and pine with a bit of crackery bready malt beneath. The flavor is light crackery maltiness with plenty of pink grapefruity hop flavor with some earthy resin playing a supporting role. Light mineral water flavor bugs me a bit, but that seems to be common to these new session IPA style brews. Light body with a moderate level of carbonation. I keep trying, but I still can't get into this genre. I always feel that these are somehow flawed ipa's without enough body to back up the hops.

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface
S: Light aromas of grapefruit hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has light to moderate flavors of grapefruit. Only a slight amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is extremely easy to drink and perfectly sessionable, but both the smell and taste seem muted.

Champagne blonde with pocked white froth that trails. 4
Oyster crackers and lemon zest on the nose. 4
Saltines up front, big grapefruit, kumquat, and pith hops. 3.75
Lemsip finish and numbing linger.
Light, fizzy, crisp. 3.75

-- Lean and mean. No crystal + real IBUs = punching above its weight. Better than Hipster or ones cut from the same cloth. At the same time, would I drink this all day? A bit watery and light on aroma in the end. 4
