I think it's a stretch to call this an IPA, even a session one. From the nose and the taste, it's really (IMO) a hybrid of an American pale ale and a German pilsner. Nice light golden color, slightly hazy, with vibrant head. Lots of carbonation. Hop aroma runs the gamut from citrus to tropical to grassy. Definitely not complaints there. Mouthfeel is thin, which is exactly what you want in this type of beer. Taste is heavy on what tastes like pilsner malt, with light grassy/floral hoppiness.

All in all, a solid offering thats super refreshing and perfect for the summer. Certainly worth picking up a six pack, just not quite what I was expecting.

Good summer time thirst-quenching ipa. Light, very low bitterness, smooth finish.
