poured out of bottle into wine glass

look - clear, coppery
smell - not much, little malts
taste - watery, malts watery, very drinkable
feel - water (theme) little effervescence
overall - drinkable,I know the watery review sounds negative but honestly a much better version of some crappier light beers I drink. I'd consider putting it into a summertime rotation on a long day of drinking.

Not at all impressed, and baffled that this beer is deemed an IPA. It's a pale ale, and a weak one at that. At approximately 4% potency, and hardly any hop to note, I wouldn't recommend this beer to anyone. Inflated price tag on a poor beer was a double whammy.

Not impressed with this one, just a watery, spritzy version of an ipa to jump onto the "session ipa" craze (not sure it is really a craze, but as there used be none called that and a line of people including me hoping for well-done low abv beers of several categories, and now I see a new beer labelled "session" practically every time I go out). When the structures is so spare, the beer really needs finer carbonation and a careful touch to shine. Simply did not happen here. This is more like I added some club soda to my ipa.
