4.5/5  rDev +17.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottled on 04/22/14:

Pours slightly hazed golden with a foamy/creamy off-white head that stays around. Rings of lacing stick.

The smell is very robust - citrus and pine.

Tastes like a rich, hoppy, citrusy/grapefruity, piney/resinous, IPA with a balancing sweetness in the middle from a firm malty backbone. Finishes with a refreshing bitter dryness.

The feel is lighter for an IPA, as expected with more "sessionable" character and abv level. Refreshing.

This is a rich/robust IPA for a lower alcohol brew. Very easy to drink. Very hoppy, with a refreshing bitterness. An outstanding "session" IPA to say the least!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a hazed, light coppery body with a near white head, small in stature.

Smell: Bready pale malts with a bit of sugar and spice. Lightly floral, melon-scented hops with a sliver of fresh, glistening herb.

Taste: The Extended Play India-Style Session Ale kicks off with pale malts housing a bready quality and restrained sweetness. Floral, fruity hops with a little green herbal hint. Subtly bitter. Remains a bit bready for the softly bittersweet, smooth finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Agreeably decent and would have no reservations about having another.

3.83/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Slightly hazy light amber beer that wields a graded foam cap of translucent white.

Thin citrusy and fruity hoppiness with a sessionable balance with the malts. Quite bright, and a little sweet, with orchard fruits and chamomile and faint tropicalia. Enjoyable, but thin, nonetheless.

Hop tea bitterness with steeped humulus over brittle ale construction. Very thin in malts, now. Pale and washed out. Hops rise above, as they damn well should, but there's little else going on other than some faint grassiness. Crunchy bitterness seems perky, but remains moderate in magnitude. It opens with a burst. Flavors delving into tangerine, peach, orange blossom, white tea, and faint piney woodiness. Such an easy drink. The flavors are really easy, but really good. This is indicative of what it's supposed to be, and I'm almost sold on the session IPA concept. As per Extended Play, the mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Overall, pretty solid. No discernible alcohol, nice chunky carbonation. I like it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy, golden color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of earthy malt, sweet malt, citrus hops, floral notes, and slight alcohol. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hops, citrus, hint of floral, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma, but weak body and complexity.

Not at all impressed, and baffled that this beer is deemed an IPA. It's a pale ale, and a weak one at that. At approximately 4% potency, and hardly any hop to note, I wouldn't recommend this beer to anyone. Inflated price tag on a poor beer was a double whammy.

this one is a little late to the session ipa party, which has been full swing since early spring. to me, its dumbed down a bit too much, not as fun and brightly hopped as the best in the genre, and it gets lost a bit next to beers like easy jack, all day, daytime, and the like. boring pale malt base and just not enough hops to get me to where this seems anything like an ipa. its just not bold enough. i do appreciate its drinkability, decent carbonation, and clean finish, and think its fine summer ale. but to call this an ipa, and put it out as an answer to some of those previously mentioned is a fools errand. not bad, just not up to the high bar thats already been set. may work in markets where those others are unavailable, or for those seeking a less hop forward session beer.
