3.88/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives slightly hazy and goldenstraw colored with a modest head; a few strands of lacing

Smell: Floral and citrusy, with hints of mango and grapefruit

Taste: Minimal malt flavors (just a hint of grain) and the hops take over, bringing tropical fruit and grapefruit tones; clean, dry finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Gets the job done and a decent drinker; I have had other hop profiles I like better but this was still enjoyable

So I had this the first time during the reunion weekend in the midwest in 2014. A somewhat cloudy golden pour, 3/5" white head on top. Good middle of the road dry hopping, perhaps Amarillo going on.

Taste, nice light body, respectable hopping. Nothing reinventing the wheel, this does make sense for a good summertime camping trip in the humid midwest. Standard citrus feels. Not overly bitter, in the 50ish ibu range. This is a good example of a hoppy session ipa just right for summertime.

Solid enough little session IPA...Nice bright citrusy aroma with lemons, and tangerines.

Relatively balanced on the taste with a light crackery malt and citrus and tropical fruits...tough of pine on the finish.

Body fits the style. Not a super assertive take on the style but a nice enjoyable flavorful beer.

Best by Aug, 2016 on bottle.

50 IBU Session IPA tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 1 pint can on August 22, 2015. Look is gold, not quite cloudy but not clear either, small head that dissipates fast, and some faint lacing. Smell is citrus fruit, pine, floral hops and honey. Taste is bitter citrus, pine, grass and some sweet honey notes. Feel is light with a crisp and somewhat bitter finish.
