It's a session, right?
What I look for in a session is something that gives me a good taste that I can have more than once.
I happen to like IPAs and hop-forward or at least non-fruit-oriented taste forward beers and this super session provides that. I'm very content and happy with the flavor it provides. If you like a similar flavor-forward style of actual beer, you will find this beer also quite suitable. Look for it and drink it. Nice stuff.

From the can, it pours a slightly hazy golden color with a nice fluffy head. Hops Hops and hops in the nose, a bit of pine and maybe some citrus. Flavorful in the mouth, with piney hops bursting through in a delectable explosion in the mouth. Yum!!

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.
