20oz IPA glass. Pours light orange, with a quick dissipating light head. Fairly stick lacing throughout.
Smells of hearty hops, orange/GF with a hint of lemon. Light on the malt. Tastes of GF upfront with a round of citrus and hops cutting right through. Bitterness on the side, MF is carbonated, but well done for a 3.8ABV session. It has become my go-to session beer.

Golden/copper ale with a mean head
Smells very hoppy and springy, a near perfect pale ale aroma
Very unique spicy and citrusy hop taste with a bitter finish
Overall definitely a good session with tons of flavor

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours orange yellow with a fluffy one finger head. Smells of citrus and piney hops, very hop forward for a session. Tastes of citrus hops with decent malt backbone, predominately tropical citrus. Beer is light bodied and every easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.

Enjoying this on my sister's porch in Oakland, CA while on vacation. It is tasty, with decent but not overpowering hop flavors, and crazy drinkable, at a puny 3.8% abv, less than Coors light. Tight in texture and well engineered throughout.
Definitely in the style of "daydrinking"IPAs. This is a nice impression of a "diet" IPA that you can inbibe all day.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy golden burnt orange to yellow color with a slim finger’s worth of white foaminess that quickly dissipated leaving some ever so light stringy lacing sticking in parts and then sliding. The smell had a sweet to slightly piney aromatic hops in front of a light caramel malt. The taste combined freshly and gracefully the hops to the malts leaving no aftertaste and a semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice sessionable aspect running about it. The carbonation was somewhat smooth but also a semi - sharp bitter bite on the tongue. Overall, I say this was definitely one of the better session IPA’s I’ve had.
