Pours a clear golden color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Has a fresh grapefruit/lemon zesty aroma. There is a good piney hop throughout the taste. Lemon seems to predominate over the grapefruit. It seems a little more tart at the end. Has a soapy, astringent aftertaste. Good IPA.

Sunshine with off white sticky froth. 4
Big herb, skunk and lemon nose. 4.25
Lemon hard candy, a hit of pineapple, then grass and white pine hops to close. 4.25
Citra hop end and tight linger.
Crisp, sherbet-y, just past light. 4.25

-- Super-bright. Love that house yeast, as always. Though not all that tropical, this is the first Session IPA that can compare to All Day. 4.25

Has to be the best session IPA on the widely distro market. Very clean, great hop flavor and a brew I will keep grabbing and going for.

Comes across watered down. Least favorites of the session IPAs.

Clear, crisp yellow with a frothy white foam. Strong, pleasant fruity smell of citrus. Tastes strongly of grapefruit, fairly sweet, hoppy but not very bitter. A very pleasant beer, great for drinking in larger quantities due to its low ABV and light character.

Frankly, I'm a huge fan of the lower alcohol "session" beers as a rule. so my opinion is probably a bit biased.
The color is hazy & golden with fair to average carbonation. light citrusy aroma. Its a "light IPA" so the taste isnt going to bowl you over, but its so much more complex and enjoyable than something produced by Imbev. Goes wonderfully with anything grilled.

I've been looking for a decent session IPA for some time. This is one of the best I've tried with a noticeable hop bitterness that seemed lemony on my taste buds. Like most session IPAs, it is a bit thin compared to the IPAs with 6 to 8% alcohol.

A - Pale yellow with bright white head. No retention.

S - Perfume, floral, hops, crackers, yeast.

T - A love tap of hops up front, citrus, piney.

O - Meh. In the wave of session ales, this one doesn't cut it.
