CBC Session 1. Lightly hazy gold beer, small pale cream coloured head. Palate is slightly dry and crisp. Thin pale malts. Hops are a light fresh orange with a little peel and a whisper of lemon. Light crisp finish. Nice enough just a bit thin.

RobertDale (3564) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - APR 24, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Comes a clear pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical, and floral. Taste is similar. This is an excellent session IPA.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2014
32oz tall swing top growler, courtesy of markwise, pours with a gold body that has a slight haze and supports a wispy dirty white head. The aroma is pretty full with cloves, sort of pilsner like malts, apricot and wheat notes. Interesting. The taste delivers citrusy tartness with lemon and grapefruit and then it gets into citrus hop flavor. Behind those notes is a wheat sort of hefeweizen feel with cloves and a touch of banana. Again, interesting.

mverity (264) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Great appearance, good head retention, great lacing. Light and slightly creamy in the mouthfeel, although a tad thin. Aroma is watery floral and some grassy sweetness. Taste is also floral and grainy/grassy sweetness. Not bad, but thin, even for a session.

Cloudy yellow color, fluffy white head. Hoppy, citrus, sweet scent. Sweet, fruity, hoppy taste. Hoppy aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Hoppy, sweet scent.

MartinT (7956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Mild caramel and spiciness joins discreet oranges and earthy hops in this ever-so-soft Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty amber.
-‘IPA’?! The hops are way too mild.
-Drinkability is high.
-The flavour profile is approachable and refined.
-This is certainly well brewed, but there is nothing to hang onto flavour-wise (like a basic Sam Adams seasonal, for example). So some disappointment is bound to occur with a beer billed as a ‘Session IPA’…

On tap at Cajun Café on the Bayou.

Draft. Pours bright hazy orange with light cream colored head with a nice collar. Smell is heavy citrus, grapefruit, tangerine. Taste follows, heavy citrus, nice hop bite. Well balanced, great stuff.
