Draft. Golden pour with frothy white head. Tropical fruit, grapefruit, grassy fresh hop tones. Flavor lacks any strength of hop flavor, letdown on flavor.

I was disappointed with this one. Had a tuna fishing trip out of San Diego, but this just seemed too watered down surprisingly, even for the "style" of session IPA. I mean, it did taste like a light IPA as opposed to an American pale, but the flavor just didn’t work for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz can from Hoboken Vine, 5/15/15
Aroma: The aroma is mostly resiny/pine hops, some clean lemon/citrus hops come through too
Appearance: Clear and bright orange in color with a frothing, lasting beige head and sheeting lace
Flavor: A lightly sweet taste, very clean from a flavor perspective, with a medium bitter finish
Palate: It has a quite smooth and clean feel, a lighter body, soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Pretty much right on what I look for in a Session IPA. Nice flavor. Easy drinking. Low alcohol. It is a hint thin compared to the best ones, but otherwise, as you’d expect from Ballast Point, this is excellent.

12oz can in a tulip. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral and earthy hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with some bitterness at the end. Average texture. A pretty good session IPA, but not the best beer ever.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours clear orange, large puffy off-white head, dissipates slowly, nice residual lacing. Aroma is perfume, pine, grapefruit, herbal. Flavor follows, light sweet and light bitter, a bit buttery, lots of perfumy hop presence. Light body, pretty solid beer for <4%.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can from Xroads. Poured a nice looking rusty orange with a large frothy eggshell colored head. Aroma/flavor of dry citrus rind, amber malts, grain, lemon, passion fruit and a slight touch of copper. Medium body with aggressive carbonation and a lingering dry bitterness. This is really good and then when you consider the ABV it’s like WOW!!!

oof, or better yet, OLOF. This sucked. Tasted like cardboard, i know sessions are all about the nuances but this was LAME. Nothing, just wet cardboard.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Strong pine needle nose with pencil shavings also prominent, dandelions. Crystal clear amber, thick yellow head, good lacing. Grass and dandelions, kind of buttery, not really diacetyl, more like buttercups. Light body, easy carbonation. One of the better session IPAs available.
