A solid session IPA. Enough bitter and hop flavor to make it close to an IPA and smooth and simple enough to make it a session ale. Very pale and a little hazy, but this is not a fruity drink. Hops are herbal and grassy with a little citrus. Big full very white head. Even though it's session size the hop bite and ample carbonation will slow down the intakes. But the takes are satisfying enough with a soft finishing bitterness and lingering hop flavor to make pauses pleasing.
Of course I'm a sucker for the dead head art.

12 oz can into IPA glass. Date 6/5/18.
Look is semi clear golden yellow. Smell is light tropical fruit. Taste follows and is nice. Feel is light. Overall a very nice session but I would not seek out but would drink again.

Strong front end. Needs something to round that front taste out. A skunky/bitter end.

Taste rating in words: it's a spray in the mouth, all up in there.

Pours a hazy straw color. 2/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of floral hops, slight spicy hops, hint of citrus hops, and an earthiness. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Fits the style of an American IPA. There is an elevated bitterness. Tastes of hint of citrus hops, floral hops, slight spicy hops, hint of pale malt, earthiness,hint of pineapple, and a hint of mango. Overall, good appearance, but average otherwise.

03/12/18 stamped on bottom of can.
Light biscuit malt with some cereal grain on the nose with grapefruit, lemon, and honeysuckle hopping and mild dank overtones.
Flavor is delicious with crackery pale malt with grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon/lime with floral and light dank herbal hop notes. Mild bitterness and clean.
Feel is light but not watery with medium carbonation. Highly drinkable.
Impressive session IPA by name but drinks more like an APA to me.
