4.13/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: A beautiful IPA. A very nice rocky white head with great retention and very nice lacing. A very clear golden color.

Nose: Dank, hoppy, and fresh, a little egg, or cream and the end.

Taste: Dry and crispy up front. A little metallic and hops dry at the end. Not too much malt activity. Metallic, medicinal, and a little bit of hops.

Notes: A nice and flavorful session IPA.

Thanks to fatbeats18 for sending this one over as an extra.

A: Pours a slightly hazy, pale straw yellow with 1.5 fingers width of off white colored head, which dissipates down fairly quickly and leaves some nice honeycomb lacing.

S: Lots of piney, and floral hops. A minty character. Lemon-lime and citrus zest.

T: Flavors as a whole are kind of muted, although there is a fairly big piney bitterness. Some citrus rind as well, and the minty character I picked up in the aroma. Pale malts to balance it out. Fairly simple, but pretty good.

M/D: Medium body, carbonation on the heavier end but appropriate, somewhat drying, drinkability is average.

O: Pretty good session IPA. Nothing crazy, but certainly worth a try.

L: Bubbly head and hazy gold. Exactly what I want an IPA to look like.

S: Hops, pine, and a hint of mint maybe? Theres something different in the smell, just a hint of fruity-citric scents.

T: The smell kind of made me expect a little more from it. Its very mild for a western IPA I think. Decently hoppy, with very little malt. Pine taste toward the back. Fairly straightforward as far as IPAs are concerned but I guess thats what I should expect from a session.

F: Light body, hoppy pops on the tongue. The feeling fades quick and leaves nothing to really remind you of the taste.

O: Not a bad session, but not as flavorful as I was hoping. Good for someone just starting on IPAs or someone who needs to keep a clear head, but still wants a beer.

Great session IPA. Good balance. Seems to be their most popular.
