A very crisp, light and complex APA. The beer is very hazy, which helps to create an excellent mouthfeel. Citrus scents and flavors are hard to pin down (peach? mango?) and there's just a trace of pine.

Poured from a 16oz can

It is a slightly foggy, dark burnt orange to bronze color. Decent amount of sticky off-white head.

It smells and tastes like dull (not dull boring)/ earthy orange, peach, and pink grapefruit. Kind of like a fruited unsweetened tea. Basically fruit rinds and pulp with no sweetness and some herbal/floral notes. Pretty good for a "session". It drinks a little more like a 6% + beer with a decent amount of body. I liked this one. Thought it was pretty good for a lower alcohol ipa. Just not sure if the, flattened flavors and feel are intentional or not. It could use a little more pop/bite.

Upfront I get resin without too much pine followed by some generic tropical fruit notes. Medium-light body with a bit of slickness that turns me off a bit. This was pretty good when I was sipping it absent mindedly while cooking dinner but didn't hold up as well to a more critical appraisal.

16 oz. can. Hazy orange with a big white head. Smells of tropical fruits, pine resin, and a little diacetyl. Tastes citrusy. Piney. Creamy pale malt. Grassy and just a little bit buttery. Light body. Not really worth drinking.

Poured from undated 16 oz can.

A: Hazy orange with one finger white head. Short retention and light lacing.

S: Grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple and biscuit malts. Hints of pine.

T: Grapefruit, peaches, orange juice, and caramel.

M: Medium body with light carbonation. A touch heavy for a session IPA.

O: Tasty but a little malty and heavy for my idea of a session IPA.

Lightly hazed peach iced tea color (sort of a dull, light bronze) with three fingers of off-white head that leave modest lacing.

Peach iced tea smell, too. Delicately fruity up front (peach, strawberry, tropical fruit) with some earthy, tea-like character behind.

The taste is reversed: more earthy than peachy, although there's still some fruit in there. Not particularly bitter, with the tea and slight fruit in the aftertaste as well.

Fairly light bodied with an almost still feel, although it's by no means under-carbonated.

As a Session IPA, it's fine, but nothing I'd go out of my way to have again. Wish it had some bitterness to it. No canned-on date, so impossible to say its age.

Thanks to @SammyJaxxx for this gem.
Pours a brassy to gold hue. Slightly hazy. Fluffy white head. Illite Lacing
Smells of subtle grapefruit notes with a bit of tropical feel, followed by a hint of pine.
Taste is more pithy grapefruit, but not overwhelming. Also the pine comes through. Even, not over the top, yet still a bit bitter for the whole ride.
Mouthfeel is on the lite side, which I expect for a session IPA. Carbonation stays with it.

tall can w/o canning date or best before dating

Pours lightly hazed lighter amber, minor off white cap and leaves a few bits of lacing

Bright grapefruit nose

Flavorful sessioner with grapefruit notes all over it

Kinda sick of every brewer under the sun taking a stab at this style...but this one is quite drinkable
