A very light blonde with a slight haze. A definite citrus aroma. A very crisp and lush taste with a clean dry finish. For a slightly hopped pale ale, this is a favorite.

Great session beer. Not my favorite session beer but definitely doesn't disappoint.

(drank on 17 Nov 2015, bottled in June 2015, sitting on shelf with dust on it - poured into a shaker)

L: pale gold liquid with a moderate haze - this is how it should be and it's safe to assume what the taste has in store... head really collapsed quick - can only guess it's the age/handling

S: smell is still kickin'... dried grapefruit rind, tobacco, little bit of dried mango, maybe some white grape in the back... I should really know what particular hops these are by now - they're using some of my favorites here... little bit of toasted grain poking through, but the hops are dominant here

T: noticeably light up front, dare I say watery - the malt flavor is super subdued and clean, not much crystal presence... sharp, piney bitterness bites immediately as well... certainly a rounded, spicy zip to the hops with a grassy pop in the middle and a floral, bitter citrus rind thread in the aftertaste...

F: very thin and dry, as expected, but more so than the lot of this type... slight smoothness to its flow, mild resiny film left over

O: gotta laugh at this session IPA genre - they're all just American-grade hopped-up pale ales of adjunct lager strength... the British counterpart to these would just be called IPAs and would merely be less biting bitter (think Deuchars IPA)... good, even with age, but with Easy Jack available, why drink this?

The off-white froth quickly passes the rim of the glass and protrudes dominant and unwavering above its surroundings. Color is yellow with a boisterous bubble activity ongoing. Faint herbal hops, grass, lemon and light fruits to the nose. Has a light fruit middle with some grass and straw mixed in before finishing with a faint herbal hops. Goes down crisp with an exceptionally light body.

Not many of the qualities of an IPA or even an APA. Not that many qualities at all for that matter.
