look: 4 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

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.

3.58/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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

On tap at Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a lightly hazy light orange, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like light grapefruit, pineapple, other tropical fruits, and pine.

This is a really nice session IPA, and one of the best I've ever had. It's a very well balanced flavor, meaning you could probably drink a lot of it, if you so chose. It's got a really nice soft and fruity hop character up front, light but super tasty, with a mildly bitter finish that reminds me of pine and grapefruit rind.

This is pretty light bodied, but not thin, with a good level of carbonation.

This is pretty easily one of the best session IPAs on the market. I would love to see this canned some day.

I was really impressed with this beer. Pours slightly hazy. Nice aroma and crisp feel, but the taste is really remarkable. Not aggressively hopped and absolutely perfectly balanced. I love juicy hop bombs, but this is a very nice change of pace. Probably one of the best sessions I've had.

First time at Industrial arts yesterday and this is one brew I would certainly drink again. Nothing crazy here, no juice bomb or in your face hops, just a nice - tasty - easy to drink IPA. Low ABV but flavorful. Well done
