Pours a fast fading low head with only little lacing. Looks to be a dark pils, clear, deeper orange but still on the light side for an IPA. Smells of intricate citrus, pine, pitch, balsam, and something I can't identify. Taste is grapefruit up front, the lightest rind nearest the pulp. Really terrific, high carbonation, fast, and cool, bitter notes are medium high, but somewhat muted, with inviting sustain. Mouth-feel is fast, refreshing, but the hop echo is of moderately long notes, with bitterness fading near the end. I really think this is a terrific IPA, and I've had lots of this since my first sip in April. Of all the craft beers I love, and I've loved lots, this one maybe really is my 'go to' session ale. A repeater, for sure. Does different things than some of my favorite ales out there...standing somewhat alone in my experience... A good follow up after a higher % (D)IPA.

Im not big in to the session ipa trend. Id rather have something bolder, but with that being said this is by far the best session ipa I've ever had. So much hop flavor packed into that 4.7% abc. Great job founders!

One of the best session ales I've had. Very light but packs a solid grapefruit, lemon-piney bitterness. Pretty balanced tho and the low abv makes for some serious crushability. Perfect summer/springtime beer.
