Poured to a Ora et Labora taster.

A: The body is extremely water with a yellow hue and with a white head, showing average retention. If it wasn't for the style, I'd really say this could be a hoppy lager.
S: The aroma is mostly resinous with just a small hint of orange peel.
T: Taste is subtle, as subtle as a Session IPA can get. Mostly resinous but fresh, ends with a light hoppy touch bringing everything together.
M: Body is low, carbonation is good, alcohol is unnoticeable and bitterness is medium high.
O: Body could have a better presentation but, overall, a good Session IPA.

Pours very pale, even for a session IPA, with a medium-large head that leaves a bit of lace. Nose is lightly refreshing with some sweetness and fruit...lightly tropical and citrusy. Taste is a bit on the light/watery side. Not a lot of flavor, but is crisp and crushable. If it wasn't so overpriced for what it is, this might be a summertime lawnmower beer. Overall, just okay and not one I'd go back to if there were other options.

Can pour into 2/3 pint glass.

Tasty, easy drinking session IPA. Does exactly what it says on the tin. Clearly not a complex beer for pontificating over, this is nonetheless perfect for sitting and shooting the breeze with your amigos. Nothing to complain about here.

I like. Cheers!

I tried the Neck Oil at the Pink Moon Saloon in Adelaide. I didn't have time to write a review on the spot. From what I remember I thought it was pretty good. Poured a golden clear with white head. The scent had some citrus notes. The taste was decently balanced. Overall its worth a shot.
