Appearance - 4/5
very clear light orange. About one finger of head, disspates down to a minimal layer of head on the top of the beer. An average amount of carbonation can be seen rising from the beer.

Smell - 3.75/5
Strong pine hops smell. Can't really smell anything else.

Taste - 4.25/5
The pine-hops taste is not as strong as the smell, rather it is balanced with a light malts taste. I really like the taste, because it provides the pine taste, but almot no bitterness. I definitely see this being a session beer, as the name suggests.

Mouthfeel - 4/5
Slightly less than medium body. Smooth, with only a hint of bitterness. A medium amount of light carbonation. The carbonation level fits nicely with the rest of the beer.

Overall - 4/5
Overall, this is a good, sessionable IPA. I'm not an IPA fan, but I could see myself easily drinking a few of these in one sitting no problem. A highly drinkable IPA. Recommended for those who are just trying to break into the IPA style, or those who enjoy IPAs only occasionally.

For a session, it's great! Light enough for anytime of day, yet it has a strong hop forward taste that packs a crisp, pine/floral punch. Great outta the can...My go-to for the outdoors!

Had this right after a Victory 19 Anniversary Session IPA. This paled in comparison. This beer disappointed in everything but appearance as the color was a nice dark gold and had some lacing. Not a fan of session IPA's. If I want to have a few lower ABV beers, I'll drink some pilsners.

Great floral aromas, a solid ipa that can be enjoyed "all day."

Mediocre beer. Good in the summer. Like that it comes in cans. Eh

A very flavorful IPA for such a low ABV. Lacks the backbone of a true IPA and is a bit watery. This brew has a nice piney, citrusy flavor. If I was looking for a session IPA I think I prefer Stone levitation Ale to this brew.
