Light amber colour. Fresh, floral aroma evokes tropical fruits. Not bad body for a low alcohol beer. Lots of bitterness and tropical fruit flavour. I like the concept of the San Diego Session, and this one is done very well.

This is the second time I’ve had this beer. The first time was at Blue Palms and then at Ballast Point. I was not impressed the first time, but figured I would give it another chance.
A: The beer is a very clear light golden color with a thin layer of white foam that leaves a bit of lacing on the glass.
S: Considering the description and all the mentioning of dry-hopping, I had high expectations. This is a pretty fragrant beer, especially for a pale. Lots of citrus hop aromas going on here.
T: This definitely has more of an IPA flavor to it. A lot of bitter pine and grapefruit flavors from the hops with hardly any malt flavor. You would not expect this to be such a low gravity beer.
M: The beer is quite light on the tongue, but that is the point of it. Very lively carbonation helps to keep it light as well.
D: This is a beer I wish was more readily available (even bottled). An amazing session beer and very refreshing. It’s nice to see such a flavorful, low alcohol beer like this.
