Pale golden see through, bottled this tastes like citric, hops clean finish almost watered down hop pellets go figure. Bright white head fine even speckled lacing down the sides of the glass. Aroma has a nice aromatic quality with herbal citric hops and a nice pleasant biscuit malt profile very clean overall. Flavor is where it falls a bit flat. Bitter hop pellets watered down clean malt profile, I guess it's a way to save calories but flavor wise these leaves a hophead wanting way more. I'm glad every one is brewing a version of this but look they can be flavorful and have some serious malt texture and complexity. I had the Thirsty Dog version weighing in at 4% abv last night, it had flavor all day on tap...I want more session IPAs like that and less that tasted like a watered down malt base infused with hop pellets. I'm not being harsh here, I'm just being constructive it's a great style when executed properly but many brewers are jumping on the bandwagon before perfecting their version. Mouthfeel is thin nearly like carbonated water too carbonated at that, slick hop oils just barely grace the palate bitterness lingers creating a very dry finish with little to not residual malts. Overall, I think I expressed my opinion on this topic.

Super clear pale gold with a medium sized white head. Lace is spotty and scattered. Head fades fairly quickly to a ring and patchy sheet over the beer surface. Aroma is grassy, dry, spicy, maybe a touch metallic (something I didn't notice in the first two of these I had), with light crackery grains, and faint lemon. Nice breadiness works through as it warms. Taste is a lot alike and better. Fresh grains, white dough, saltine crackers w/out the salt, lemon and citrus rind, spicy, brisk grassiness, implosively dry and crisply bitter. Mouthfeel is grainy/resinous and slick with festive carbonation. This sticks on the palate a bit after each sip with elongated bitter hop sensations. Very drinkable and quite refreshing.

Easy IPA is a good title for this. Its not fruity hop forward at all, more german, czech, and in general green/naturey in its hoppiness. The malt grain presence in this is very nice and holds up the bitterness just right.

Picked up a single at Euro Mart, dated best by Nov 10. It poured a clear gold with a short white head. The aroma is a pleasant resiny citrus, but it's far too mild. The hops carry over into the flavor with a little more herbal lemon rind and a touch of toasty malts. This would make a fine blond ale or extra pale ale, but it can't hold up to Founders All-Day, Lagunitas Daytime, or Stone's Go-To IPA.
