Pale slightly cloudy yellow body, off white foamy head, plenty of carbonation. Smell includes buttery verging on butterscotch light malt, tangerine. Flavor is mildly bitter, tangerine, mild grapefruit, pleasant vanilla-like malt. Harsh carbonation burns the throat, otherwise light and enjoyable body.
It's totally drinkable, the butter aspect in the nose is even welcome, but just not a lot of big character, which is still possible in a session beer. Feel is reminiscent of mass-produced yellow fizz, but if it's drank by an open mind it can add to the character.

This is just not a good beer. Diacetyl like crazy and generally tasted like bad home brew. I really don't like to disparage beers but this was not enjoyable.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Getting the night started with a session IPA. Why not? This stuff pours a clear straw-brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises light candied lemon peel, mild buttery biscuit, and a kiss of sweet flowers. The taste generally brings in more of the same, though the flavors all seem watered-down to a decent degree. Blandness in spades, unfortunately. The body is a medium light, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly watery feel. Overall, I understand the appeal of lower-alcohol IPAs and such, but examples like this tend to ruin the idea for me. This is just too watery and watered-down for its own good (and definitely for my good). Pass.

Not a lot of flavor going on, not what I'm looking for in a session IPA
