4.51/5  rDev +19.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottled on 04/22/14:

Pours slightly hazed golden with a foamy/creamy off-white head that stays around. Rings of lacing stick.

The smell is very robust - citrus and pine.

Tastes like a rich, hoppy, citrusy/grapefruity, piney/resinous, IPA with a balancing sweetness in the middle from a firm malty backbone. Finishes with a refreshing bitter dryness.

The feel is lighter for an IPA, as expected with more "sessionable" character and abv level. Refreshing.

This is a rich/robust IPA for a lower alcohol brew. Very easy to drink. Very hoppy, with a refreshing bitterness. An outstanding "session" IPA to say the least!

L: Pours hazy gold producing a 1” cream colored foam collar that takes 3” to fully integrate itself back into the beer leaving a thin, lacy film. S: a herbal biscuit scent with some floral notes mixed with fresh mown grass and a little pine rise form the glass. T: The palate features light melon, bery and citrus flavors in balance with a grassier, herbal hop bitterness. It all rides on a backbone of lightly sweet malt that dries out by the finish. F: Very creamy with a medium light body, medium carbonation. O: This is a very full flavored sessionable beer that is well worth repeating.

12 oz bottle stil had a thin coat of sediment on the bottom after a full pour. Th lightly hazy, golden-amber body wa topped by a very good off-white head that left decent lacing. Plenty of fruity-herbal hoppy aroma, and nearly as much in tasting. Still, with a light body that is noticeably light for an IPA, this drinks like the session IPA it is. Recommended as such, or as a hoppy APA.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is bright lemon and grapefruit.
The taste has a moderate bitterness, the middle is a bit of a crash of bitter and sweet, but still fine.
The texture is crisp.
Enjoyable.
