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.

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.

Lighter in hops. Very bubbly and effervescent mouthful. Lighter in flavor.

Served in a tumbler at Mundelein Brewfest 2014.

Heading over to Lakefront's station to try out their new-ish "session IPA". It pours a clear pale-ish brass topped by a finger or so of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises flowers, mild grass, light pine needle, light grapefruit rind, and a kiss or two of honey. The taste brings in more of the same, the honey coming through stronger than before, though it's still a definite second fiddle to everything else. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a nice "session IPA", something I could see drinking again, though it's not exciting enough for me to demand one.
