Pours a golden somewhat hazy orange/brown color and leaves the same color body with a finger’s worth of foamy white head that quickly dies leaving a good amount of foamy clingy lacing in rings; the aroma has the hops coming through in a slightly piney yet citrusy sort of fashion, nicely done and bitter, super light amount of malts; the taste is mainly bitter to start, and a slight malty flavoring does eventually settle in as it warms; dry bitter aftertaste and finish; its pretty easy on the palate and is fairly sessionable, carbonation is good for the style; overall, I’m pretty sure Two Beers did exactly what they wanted to do: 1) IPA 2) sessionable 3) flavorful and I’ll add "backpackable" and well worthy to come back to.

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.
