L: Pours a hazey gold with a fast falling head with very little lacing
S: smell is earthy with floral and citrus
T: taste is just as it smells with the floral notes coming in hot
Overall my favorite session ipa. It’s sophistictaed enough to pour into a tulip glass and enjoy with a meal but light enough to drink straight from the can while day drinking. Well done by Golden Road

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz can into a tulip

L: Clear light golden pour. 1.5 fingers of foamy white lace... falls fast with a nice ring of lacing.

S: Crackery grains and light citrus. Floral notes and fruit.

T/F: Light grains and light bodied brew... citrusy hops.. some tropical notes. Floral and a little earthy. Well carbonated. Finish is mildly juicy.

O: Not the best session... but also far from the worst. Easy drinking... nothing offensive here, but not one I'd seek out either.

Straw colored and a quickly receeding head from tap at Bubba's Pot Stove Restaurant in Quakertown. Citrus and sweetness on the nose of this one. Taste is a bit more piney with some grapefruit citrus elements. Some bitterness to the finish. Decent carbonation and a thinner mouthfeel.

A sessionbable and dry IPA. Citrus and grapefruit aromas give way to a taste with slightly more pine. Pour is a clear light gold with no head or much lacing. Overall, worth a shot as your potential session IPA.

This beer pours a cloudy gold color with a slim head. The smell is a subtle balance of hops and citrus, and the taste is deliciously citrus with hop undertones. This is a tasty, somewhat sour and easy-drinking session.

My 1st from a cool LA brewer, integrated well into that huge metropolis.
Following the American business model, they can an AIPA. Part good, part OK

15 pack at Kroger, canned on 5/17/17 (yikes)

A: Giant f'ing head. So big I had to slow my pour on the second can. Long lasting head. Laces the glass. Lots of bubbles.

S: light citrus, light cracker

T: Some zest, some pineapple, light bread, light pine. Light everything. But it's there. It's not hop water. I'm going to tack on a little extra in the score because it's in there and balanced, nice effort here on a session. It's like a good pilsner with a little extra hop, actually quite good.

M: Dry finish. Light on the mouth (there's that word again). Medium carbonation. Light bodied. It's a refreshing beer. I could drink the whole 15 pack.

O: This is a pretty good session IPA, and it is VERY easy to drink. I'm pretty impressed. For those days, or nights, you don't want to get plastered off a few beers this is a very good choice, much better than the adjunct swill and really not that much more coin for it. A really good easy-going beer.
