Smooth sipping goodness. Smells like a forest mixed with a citrus grove. Very drinkable.

Pours a clear deep amber with a huge, well retained white head that left spots of lacing. Smells of citrus fruits, hops and some malt. Tastes of grapefruit, orange, pine, bready malts, grass and a hint of peach. Light to medium bodied, well carbonated, crisp and extremely refreshing. Excellent beer especially at 4.8% ABV.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Packaged May 14th 2018

Pale amber body color, and quite clear, with some very fast rising fine carbonation. Soapy white head, with also soapy retention stretching to make three fingers in height. Settles down at a good but not too quick pace, with minimal lacing.

Light bodied aroma, sensing a little hop quality a bit of earth and green musty herbs a bit. Quite floral mix of dirt, with little sense of sweet malt backbone also. Kind of crispy like body sensing it seems too. Very garden like smelling, and green.

Palate seems to take the light quality to another level. Very pappery malt body, even for a session beer, making for quite a fleeting flavor and experience. Wet tasting hop, with a washing almost neutral malt flavor. Green herbs, and touches of chlorphyl like flavor on the finish. Flirting almost chalky aftertaste and mouthfeel.

Unfortunately not really doing much for me, even for a session IPA. Interesting hop aroma, but needs some malt contrast to balance.

Poured from a 12oz can with a packaged on date of 4/25/18; into a pub glass.
Appearance- gold with some oily sediment and plenty of carbonation bubbles that work to sustain a medium thick, soapy white head. Lacing is adequate adequate.
Smell- oily herbal hops with a touch of tropical fruit notes.
Taste- the flavors detected from the nose come through loud and proud from the first sip, thus presenting as a standard IPA, as opposed to a session!
Feel - comes off much stronger than the 4.8%ABV; nice bitter start with a mildly dry finish!
Overall - top notch session that doesn’t sacrifice flavor in order to obtain a low ABV; this is a keeper!

In a world of bigger and more exotic IPAs, any type of sessionable hoppy ale is going to have a hard time standing out. But this may be the best I've had to date because the taste is very robust and actually outdoes the somewhat subdued nose.

On tap at Blackback Pub in Waterbury, VT after a bruising 9-hour drive from southern PA. A clear amber with a persistent off-white head. Initial impression was pine, grapefruit, and orange, with a dose of bready malts to balance things. Mouthfeel is easy to drink; carbonation is perfect. Finish is dry and a little bitter. A lot of flavor for a session beer.
