Can. Pours hazy copper with a fluffy white head. Amber-style malts and earthy hops come through on the nose for me. Taste is mostly bitter with some citrus hops and malt peeking through. Not a favorite but drinkable and pretty impressive for under 4%.

Also on tap at Capone’s. This beer is a fantastic, full of flavor beer, in a small package. Low ABV makes for a great easy drinking session beer. Very clear in appearance. The aroma is very citrus, and the taste concurs. The malt is obviously light in this beer. This is a great IPA, with a solid hop background and foreground.

Served cold from tap at brewery. My girlfriend thought it was very tropical, smelled like passionfruit and tasted like mangos. It definitely had a citrus/fruit aroma to it, with some hops up front and a light finish.

Clear copper with small bubbly head. Nice aroma of light roast and spicy hops. Very spicy bite, caramal and slightly bready malt base with very spicy, piney, slightly resiny hop bite, long mild bitter finish. Very pleasant surprise for a beer labeled "session ale," i was expecting bland and boring.

Poured from a can. Hazy amber. Huge, white head. Lots of lacing. Big piny aroma with a hint of citrus. Tastes the same as it smells.

Spoons in Peckham, 23rd Oct 2013. Cask vers. So here we have it....the Session IPA....the latest innovation from California. Except this looks and tastes more like a hoppy bitter and real session-able beers with US IPA style flavour profiles have been available over on this side of the Atlantic for years anyway. Alright but expected much more.

Can poured into a pint glass. Pours dark orange with a tan head. Aroma is mostly citrus. Taste is unique for an IPA... mostly caramel and brown sugar sweetness. Smells like an IPA but drinks like an Irish red ale. Not bad, but not what I’d expect from a session IPA.

RBSG08 tap. Amber pour with nice dim. head. Fruit, hop, citrus. There is an "airy" dryness to it which is very light and easy to drink with nice flavors.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This might be a new favorite session IPA. The aroma is heavy, dank and herbal with scant note of citrus and yeast funk. The flavor is potent and hoppy with some funk and spice from the yeast. Lighter bodied, but solid and balanced. I’m a little surprised my rating is a bit higher than most... I will say this, I had this beer immediately after a Lagunitas Sucks and I still thought it had legit aroma, flavor and drinkability...

Again not really impressed. Bad after taste as far as I am concerned. Not one for me.
