Overall, this is very similar to Founders All Day IPA Session Ale. This lags a little behind the Founder's product but not by much. It has a great taste, with plenty of happiness and bitter and got to love the low ABV. Just like the Founder's All Day IPA Session Ale, you could drink this all day.

Surprisingly delicious ale that I agree is very sessionable. Nice golden color, decent head with some lingering lacing. Smells of citrus hops, tastes of malt, caramel, wheat and more sweet citrus than herbal or floral hops. Smooth finish, clean mouthfeel, great carbonation throughout. No real bitterness at the finish. I would definitely have more than one of these on a hot day.

Picked-up a mixed twelve-pack of can for twenty two forty nine at Fritzies in Beach Haven, NJ. Have heard of this brewery before, but never tried, as it is not distributed in MA. Decent low-ABV brew.

Looks like a Pilsner, smells like a subtle citrus piney malt, tastes smooth like a Session should and has a very good mouth feel. Drink 8 of these out on the river and you’ll have a good day.

12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 7/4/2018. Bit of a gusher can. Pours slightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, honey, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, fairly sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.7%, Overall this is a delicious session IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful with an impressive malt body for the ABV from Victory malts; and I loved the Centennial, Zythos, Amarillo, Galaxy hop profile as expected. Juicy/light dank hops, balanced malts. Not overly bitter or malty either way. A very enjoyable offering and impressive style example.

I got a few cans of this in a Terrapin IPA Variety Pack. It’s pretty good for a session ale. Smooth and crisp with a nice bitter taste. Similar to Founders All Day. I’d pick this up in a 12-pack if I found one.

Light copper colored with a half inch of creamy off white. Moderate lacing. I'm smelling a light lemon hop note. I'm tasting a light lemon to grassy hop flavor along with some gentle, light, crackery malt. The mouth is fairly smooth and crisp.

Poured into a snifter. Golden color with a two-finger off-white head. Nice lacing in the glass. Nice aroma with grapefruit pith and some earthiness. A little pine also. The taste was primarily bitter citrus, rounded out with a little pine and grass. Dry, bready malt that stayed out of the way. Light bodied but did not seem watery. Crisp finish. I enjoyed this one.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours orange-yellow with a small white head. Smells of citrus hops, not too strong, but not weak either. Tastes of citrus and earthy hops, nice combination. Beer is light bodied and very easy drinking. Overall, an above average beer.
