Incredible to believe that this is only 4.5% abv, it packs as much punch as almost any imperial mosaic-based IPA. Super juicy, tropical, and simultaneously crushable. I'm just glad this is in cans so that I can continue to drink so much of it this summer.

Great session IPA. It smells like I'm stuffing my face in a bag of hop pellets. It's floral and grassy at first, then turns juicy as it warms. The underlining toasty malts appear briefly to punch up the character, but then earthy and peachy hops roll through the semi-dry finish. Go find some.

Edit again. Have bought 3 succesful 6 packs (feb/mar 16). As before, light refreshing, great hop aroma and a nice low level of bitterness. Good

EDIT: The quality of this beer has decreased substanitally the last several times ive bout it (Nov/Dec 2015). Enhanced bitterness, decreased hop aroma, and an overall unpleasant taste are leading me to purchase this less and less. Very sad. But i must change my grade. You used to open this beer to a floral explosion, but no longer. Well, twas a time



Wow, for a session ipa this is amazing, maybe one of the best ive had of this style. I love citra and mosaic, so this fresh is just a bomb of those in your mouth. Not perfect, as its a bit sweet for my tastes, but this is easily as good as yellow rose

12oz can poured into a tall pint tumbler.

Never heard of this beer before, but it pours a slightly turbid, bright yellow with a big fluffy 2-3 finger head that leaves a nice sample of lacing throughout. What immediately stands out to me is an enticing lemondrop candy aroma, backed subtly by slightly herbaceous notes and a hint of spent grains to balance. With most session brews, brewers seem to nail the nose but lose all that glorious, anticipated flavor. Not this one! The taste almost perfectly mimics the aroma, lemon peel, candied citrus, just the right hint of baked bread for spot-on balance. High & tight carbonation, absolutely crush...err, sessionable. They didn't lie! If this was local I'd plow through these by the case. So friggin' good, possibly my favorite session ale out there right now.

This is a terrific example of a session
I can't really agree or understand a review that references watered down.
I don't think the intent was to act like a 7%.
Aroma, taste, and feel are all there.

12 ounce can into a tulip.

Frothy and firm pale white head. Scattered lacing as the head retreats. Golden and a tad cloudy in the body. Clearly light on the malts. 4.5

Smells lovely. Fresh mango, floral and grassy. The aroma doesn't sustain or wallop me in the face though, which is a bit of a disappointment. 3.75

Flavor is a combination of dank weed and semi-ripe mangos or other pungent fruit. A nice funky hop flavor lingers like some good weed does on your clothes in first period home room. I'd love these flavors if they were more pronounced and didn't feel watered down. 3.5

As I said, it feels a tad watered down, but it also has a dank, slightly spicy and lightly bitter mouthfeel. It drinks easily definitely. 3.5

Nice and light but perhaps too light.

12oz can, wine glass, canned 5/18/17.

Typical golden rod ale with a sudsy white head. This modern session IPA is just slightly hazy. That good finger of head leaves just a few vapor trails of lace on the glass.

Floral, white pepper, white grapes, yellow grapefruit hop aromas. Musty.

Crisp is my first impression. Citrus hops, lychee, white grapes overlay a very pleasing crisp grainy malt base.

This an effervescent and refreshing beer. It has lots of bubbles and a light body.

This is one of my top session IPAs. It doesn't feel less than it's big brothers, but manages to be more refreshing than them.
