a well hopped and very drinkable session ipa, different than many in several respects. its light on the malt but not watery, golden in color, dry, and still quite flavorful. its light there on purpose and it makes sense. the hops are still really intense, very much west coasty, oily, and bitter. resinous and piney for me, with a long lingering punch on the finish, orange peel and grapefruit notes to this as well. i like that its still bitter, so many of these just go for the dry hop juicy thing, and we end up not really having an ipa at all, so this smartly avoids that. it also tastes kind of classic to me on the hops, maybe simcoe and cascade or something, vegetal and fresh, very northwestern, and well dosed. i could drink a lot of this, but its not quite as easy going as a lot of session beers are. its more like a low alcohol normal ipa than it is reduced in any way other than the strength. i alway enjoy drinking new beers from these guys, somehow still under the radar it seems after all these great beers...

The appearance was a slightly clear yellow body, one finger white foamy head that lasts for a good full minute before dieing, moderate carbonation is seen rising. The smell had zesty hops up front with a nice light citrusy punch trying to come through, light malt presence. The taste was spicy yet somewhat sweet, light malt presence comes in there, spicy aftertaste, dry finish. The palate sat about a light to medium, sessionable, adequate carbonation for the style and for me. Overall, this is a good spicy AIPA that I would have again.

On tap at Blu Wolf Bistro in Rochester, NY.

This pours a clear light golden amber, with a small head and lots of lacing.

This smells like crackery mlt, clean pine, grassiness, floral aromas, and a hint of soap.

This is quite dry, with very little fruity hop flavor. There's a snap of sturdy crackery malt, upon which clean grassy and piney hops are laid down. There's a little bit of perfume/soap on the finish, but it's nothing crazy. There's almost an entire lack of sweetness here.

This is very dry and very crisp in the body, with a good level of carbonation, and an unsurprisingly light body.

I don't really like session IPAs, but this is quite good for the style. I could see getting this one again.

Had on tap and rubs barbecue in detroit before the guns and roses concert. This was a very decent session with an intense aroma for such a low alcohol content ipa. Very easy drinking. Wish kunhnhenn would disrepute to stores again. I would by this in a heartbeat to drink on a warm summer day.
