Very low on the malt flavor, I'd prefer a bit stronger malt flavor. Good choice if you're looking for something subtle.

A: The beer is a little hazy yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of orange citrus and pine are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of mangos and orange citrus along with some notes of pine towards the finish. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is perfectly sessionable and packs in a complex amount of hop flavors in the taste.

Serving type: can

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass

L: Clear light golden pour. Massive frothy white head. Loads of lacing.

S: Fruit and citrus. Slight pine.

T/F: Light grains... somewhat thin as expected. Great flavor and bitterness... grapefruit rind, tangerine, and tropicals. A little peppery. Good carbonation. Finish is tropical fruit juice and citrus.

O: Just like the name suggests... this is a super session IPA. They pack a lot of hop flavor into a low ABV offering that you can pretty much drink all day. Worthy.
