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

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.
