Great session IPA that accentuates the Citra hop character. Canned makes it a great go-to.

Overall this is my favorite session IPA that also happens to be hopped with my favorite hop variety. Aromatic, tasty and smooth, with a very nice dry and bitter finish. Awesome.

I was skeptical of this at first because session IPAs usually leave me a bit disappointed, but this was fantastic. Poured from a 16oz can into a large pub glass. Look is a bright golden with a finger sized head that faded fairly quick but left a decent bit of lacing. Smell is tropical fruit and citrus peel. Taste is much better than anticipated with loads of Citra hop character that develops a bit on the pallet and lingers long after the swallow, which I didn't expect from such a low abv IPA. Feel is a bit thin, but nothing I didn't expect from a session IPA. Overall, very pleased and surprised! Definitely would recommend this, especially for the super reasonable price (2 bucks and some change) for the pint sized can.

One of the better session IPA's I have had recently but the price could be better.

Amazingly flavorful session. Citrus is very strong but not harsh like some others heavily hopped with citra. This is legit crushable despite how freaking hoppy it is

L: A straw to yellow pour with a slight haze produces a sudsy off-white 3” foam collar that is moderately persistent.

S: Hoppy citrus aromas blending lemon, lime and orange, light malts. Hop aromas are medium, malt aromas are medium low.

T: Big lime to lemon citrusy flavors with a medium low malt background.

F: Medium light body with medium high carbonation

O: Very refreshing and flavorful with a mild kick.

I knew what I was getting before I ever tasted this light bodied session ale. The name of the beer lays it right out for you. I felt like Fred Flintstone sliding off my dinosaur excavator, seamlessly sliding into my stone car, following the first sip. The beer rolled easily down the throat and dropped subtle grapefruit notes all the way to the bottom. Great summer beer.

Great session IPA. Absolutely kills it at just 4.5 ABV. Essentially the same as Coors Light in terms of alcohol - really makes you respect what Evil Twin has done here - bringing forth a truly Full flavored brew at a minimum ABV. Bravo! Summer delight
