look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass

L: Clear light golden pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head. Solid lacing.

S: Crisp and hoppy. Good pine/resin notes.

T/F: Light malts.... grains giving way to a nice bitter hop presence. Good notes of pine and evergreen. Orange rind, coriander, and mild fruit. Light in body as intended, but with more oomph than most sessions. Finish is bitter. Well carbonated.

O: A very flavorful session IPA... one of the best I've had, and one that you could literally drink all day if so inclined.

Nice refreshing beer. Picked up a 19oz can for a couple bucks, def worth the price.
Hoppy flavor of an IPA, but not overly bitter. This is a good budget beer for a hot day.

I like this stuff. A nice IPA, with the hops flavor and bite I enjoy, without kicking my butt with high ABV. Excellent.

Amber body

Flavors are bright with light floral hops followed by a burst of bitterness and then bright light malts.

Carbonation is quite heavy but it's not out of character for the style.

Pretty good.

Clear, amber body with a light, white head, middling retention.
Beautiful aroma, floral and fruity like a walk through an orchard; peach, mango, rose petals.
Toasted malts and some fruitiness, but not as much as the aroma, touch of pineapple, dry finish and the hops kick in at the perfect level, mildly pithy; light-medium body , good carbonation.
Overall it has amazing balance, and is interesting without being TOO interesting - could definitely drink this one all day.

Had this from a 330 ml bottle. When poured out, it generates a huge white and frothy head, over a golden coloured brew. The aromas of this session IPA are rich in hoppy notes, especially of florals and fruits, all nicely balanced and distinct. Taste is less distinct, there are some floral, grass, pine and citrus notes, but seem a bit watered down and indistinct, except for a light bitter sweetness. The finish is medium, and it ends with a bit of a watery texture and note, although the average level of carbonation does make it smooth for most part. Net, great aromas, but a bit indistinct on he taste.
