Best tasting session IPA I have had. Nice and hoppy full body taste, very smooth finish, I purchase these in 15 pack cans and it's very reasonably priced.

Perfect session IPA, reminds me of moon man with a little more bitterness. Refreshing, good color for the style with nice head retention. Slightly floral with citrus. I love it

Poured into a tumbler from a 12 oz bottle

Color is clear gold with a frothy white head that slowly receded to clumpy islands. Lacing is okay. Smell is really nice - tropical and citrus fruit. Flavor is also very good. It's a little subdued, being a session IPA, but still very tasty. Body is light/medium with good carbonation. Overall, one of the first session IPA I've had that I actually would enjoy sessioning.

Heavy grapefruit, a bit much for me otherwise would be a 4. Good balance malt, crisp and not too dry

Poured from a tap into a 16 oz pint glass, an unremarkable blonde-gold color with a short lived white head that left a lot of lace. Mild hop aroma. Tastes strongly of piney resin and bright citrus hops, rather astringent at first, almost more Pine-Sol than pine, but then rounds out with a little more malt for a clean light finish. Mouthfeel is pleasant and slightly sticky. The overall flavor profile just slightly off-key, the front a tad too bitter, the finish a tad too watery. This reminds me of sodas or juice drinks with reduced sugar: my tongue misses the boozy heft of the real thing. However when you want those bitter hops but only a minor buzz, this gets the job done and is fairly pleasant.
