I'm a small person with a very low tolerance for alcohol, so this has become my go-to IPA. Is it the best in the world? Of course not. But it's very reasonably priced (less than a dollar a can) and I can finish several in one sitting comfortably. Not as 'chewy' as full-strength IPAs, but the juicy hop terpenes kick more than makes up for the slightly thin malt palate. Long, satisfying finish.

Pretty good beer. Never disappoints. First drink or last drink of the night, it will go down smooth.

Have been enjoying out of the can at home. Crisp, the right amount of bitterness without being cloying or heavy and finishes clean. Definitely a fan.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into IPA Glass. The color is golden honey with a thick milk white head and generous lacing. It smells of grapefruit, pine, hops, and a little bit of malt. The taste of the grapefruit and hops is somewhat muted - like craft light beer. As a session IPA, it is very easy drinking; nicely carbonated and smooth. This beer achieves its purpose: a light, easy drinking IPA that is perfect for outdoor events.

Don't remember being a huge fan of this one, but had a nice, cold-stored bottle recently and man was it tasty. Really nice nose, grassy, light citrus or perhaps even flecks of tropical fruit, a just a hint of dankness/pungency. Palate finds a way to not get too thin, though the carb combines with the attenuation to create a pretty buzzy feel. Still, a nice mix of hop flavor with the faintest of crackery malt backdrops. This thing works, and it works well.

Balanced, delicate, exquisite, soul hovering whiskey all the time about the character of this beer.

Well, i guess it wasn't clear what "all day" really means.
This is one refreshing, smooth, easy going beverage. What a nice balance between malt and hops. Feels light and aromatic. Nice one.
