Baby Diamonds is excellent beer...compared to other sessions such as Pinner, Even Keel, Easy IPA, even Boat and All Day, this one easily wins in flavor and complexity. It's only possible downfall (and only reason to believe this is under 5% ABV...) is the mouthfeel, which comes across a touch over-carbonated, hinting at a weaker grain bill.

Drank this from the can at first, then poured the second half or so into a Tired Hands tiku glass. It pours incredibly hazy and while look is a subjective measure, I love the look of this brew. It just looks so homey and fresh..

Aroma is wonderful...eerily similar to that of Heady Topper. And yes, that's a good thing. The nose features grapefruit prominently, though over time it transitions to become more earthy and comforting. Flavors are right up there with the best 7-8% abv IPAs and if it wasn't for the slight over-carbonation, this would be nearly perfect. As it is, it's the best sub-5% IPA i've had.

Just picked up today at Other Half. Poured from a 16oz can into a Speiglau IPA glass.

Look is cloudy pale yellow with a frothy head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is light orange hard candy. Like an herbal bitter orange and spun sugar.

Does not taste like a 4.8% session IPA. Has a lot more of a full flavor with lots of malt. Only hint that it is session is a slight thinness on the body. But that is such a small part of this beer.

16oz. can into a Surly teku.

Nose is citrus. Sugary with hints of starfruit and honey. Beer opens sweet. I get lychee, mango, clementines and starfruit. Some grassiness in the middle provides a little balance but it isn't much. Very muted bitterness. Body is light with ample carbonation. Prickly and aggressive in the mouth and goes down crisp and refreshing. Solid. Very drinkable.

A perfectly sessionable beer. Enjoyable and pretty packed with flavor for the ABVs.

This is a perfect drinking beer. Plenty of character for a low abv IPA, other half nailed it with this one
