3.53/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

poured into a pint glass - it was amber in color with a good level of carbonations; some foam which dissipated quickly

S: mostly malt aromas
T: tasted more like an amber lager; did not sense any flavors that I usually taste in an IPA

overall: it was ok and drinkable. however, there are others I would prefer when looking for an IPA

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance: Orange/copper in appearance with about 1 finger of white head. Sediment is seen on bottom of glass
Smell: Strong hops with hints of citrus.
Taste: Bitterness of the hops is the first thing that is noticed (though it is expected, given that this is an IPA). Just like the aroma, hints of citrus are noticed in the taste. There is also a mildly bitter aftertaste that is somewhat unpleasant.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with strong carbonation. Goes down pretty easily.
Overall: Pretty good IPA.

Not a bad session, just not my favorite. Appears golden-orange in the glass with haze an a lesser off white head. Smells of hops and a faint caramel and citrus scent. Taste is a little weak but decent and not extraordinary, hops, malt, caramel with a bit of citrus. This is a good session, and I'd try another.

Not a big fan of the title "session IPA " they only call it that to keep the 3 letters in the name because they sell beer. The style should be called " hoppy pale" . That being said, this one is delicious ! Big citrus, easy drinking . If Lakefront had distro in NC I could see drinking this one all summer . Cheers!

Sediment in the bottle, pours golden without too much head and very little lingering lace. Light carbonation. Excellent hoppy smell and taste with a nice IPA bite for taste. An excellent choice and one I'll keep in my rotation.

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.
