I had this on tap at Russian River served chilled in a Nonic.

The color is golden amber with great clarity and thick white cream with average bead and lace that sticks. The smell is very nice, lots of citrus and herbal hop aromas with mild yeast and malt essence. The feel is great, very dry and not super bitter with a light toasted malt texture and moderate carbonation.

The flavor is very good, lots of hops yet still somewhat balanced by the malt which has a light toasted taste with slight nutty quality that combines well with the herbal and subtle citrus hop flavor. The overall impression is a solid hoppy session beer, very nice dry finish and easy to quaff with enough malt to support the bitterness level which is something I like compared to other 'session IPA's' which can be unbalanced and overly bitter.

Growler to the dome. Poured into SN imperial pint.

A: Pours a clear pale golden with an impressively huge, thick, greasy, and dense off-white head that slowly faded into a very thick and rocky film that lasted the whole glass through. Sticky sheets of airy lace were left down the glass.
S: Citrus dominates with hints of sweet tangerine and orange zest, but I get a fair amount of mango and pineapple mixed in as well. Bready pale malt pokes through the scent. Light overall, but what’s there is great.
T: Light and easy flavors of mild citrus juice and watery pale malt. Not much going on except a few citrus hints and floral hoppy notes. The finish is more sweet than bitter, with a touch of the mango and pineapple from the nose, and the aftertaste is quick, light, and bready, with a linger kiss of grapefruit pith.
M: Despite the head, carbonation is rather low, with a light body and light and quaffable mouthfeel. Drinks well.
O: Decent flavor profile, extremely light scent and flavor, and light and easy to drink. Definitely a session ipa, but I wish it had just a touch more. This was very easy to drink over the course of an evening, and I would do so again, but overall this isn’t anything spectacular.

Part of a sampler at the brewery. This had a clear light golden pour with small white ring of head. Juicy citrus hops on the very delicate aroma, slight sweetness, and some floral notes. Bitter up front--similar flavor to blind pig but lighter--with citrus notes and very little malt backing. Medium plus carb and light mouthfeel. Good stuff and very easy drinking.
