2/7/16 drinking, 11/11/15 bottled on

L: bright pale gold, strong clarity, thin white head that quickly settled out. Poor head retention

S: Low aromatics, clean, slightly sweet, light tangerine or orange. Lack of strong aromatics

T: Balanced bitterness, with some mild bready background. Hop flavors of citrus and some piney resin in the back, but overall fairly low prominence for an IPA. Very high drinkability, which goes for it being a session ale. Some very low lingering citrus peel, but mostly a clean end once you swallow.

F: Higher carbonation helps keep it light and refreshing, scrubbing bubbles keeping it easy to consume and palate cleansing. Lighter body is bulked up by the carbonation, helping to prevent a watery session ale feel.

O: A very drinkable session IPA with a nice palate cleansing level of elevated carbonation and clean bitterness. Stronger aromatics would be nice, and a more pronounced hop flavor, but this bottle also is almost 3 months old, so I'm not surprised if things died down some. "All Day" is right, as I could see a summer day of bbq and downing several without feeling overwhelmed.

12-oz can into Belgian ale glass

A - 2-finger off-white head over a slightly-cloudy body of golden amber, high visible carbonation

S - grapefruit, touch of tropical fruit, maybe a little floral

T - grapefruit, touch of pine, floral, crackers

M - light/medium body, highly carbonated

O - I guess I'm just not big on session IPAs. They have the smell and taste of regular IPAs, but toned down. I would prefer full-strength smell, taste, and body. That said, for a session ale this is pretty decent.
