Faint yellow soapy white head that wouldn't go away. Aroma was decently hoppy, not like your juggernaut session ipa's, this is clearly second tier.

Hops come out taste/mouthfeel wise more than they did aroma. A lot of old school hops, American style. Its a pretty good session ipa. Better options, but definitely a worthy adversary.

Copper gold with a white head that lasts several minutes. Aromas of pineapple, orange rind, honey, and cereal grains. Flavor is grainy & nutty, with light hops flavors. Medium-light body, light bitterness, very drinkable. Long-lasting lemony bitterness with a light aftertaste of lemongrass.

Reading over my review, I think it sounds better than it is.

Attractive golden color with a generous foam in the Pilsner-style glass. Pleasant sudsy mouthfeel. Expansive aroma of flowery hops with a resiny note.

Fairly bitter but not excessive. There is just a slight malty sweetness and a wisp of malty body. Slightly bready. Tangy and a little sharp. Quite swiggable. Aftertaste is thoroughly bitter. More of a resiny hop taste. Reminds me of an actual Pilsner.

I think this is one of the better lighter-style IPAs that I've had. Of course, there's a significant difference between 4.8% and 4.0, which is more like a low-alcohol brew. From the 12 oz can purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.
