On tap. Pours a pale amber with next to no head retention. This is yet another example of an attempt to water down a standard IPA and pass it off as something total new. Essentially, this really lacks has a substantial pine note up front, followed by a touch of citrus. Like most other Sesion IPA's , this fails to make the cake.

Pours a light clear golden/amber with a medium head.
Smell is slightly sweet with a hint of citrus.
Taste is a good blend of citrus and pine. Sessionable indeed.

Clear amber color, citrus hop aroma. Not your usual extreme heavily hopped ipa with a strong pine smell or dry finish. This is what i found appealling about this brew. Was able to enjoy all components of this beer instead of just battling the hop taste

Clearly an "east coast" variety of IPA. I really like the improved balance relative to the west coast brethren - I guess more like I think the style was intended. Not really as copper as expected though head retention and lacing was fair. Floral character was not over the top, but pleasant. Malty, not sticky but it works with good carbonartion and a really nice balanced finish.

Those expecting a hop wallop will surely be disappinted; I thought it was a really nice beer and well represented the style.
