5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Can:   Soft, a little sweet, some powdered sugar like citrusy bits.   Not as crisp as the Easy Jack I had just before this.   This one has a lot more pith that lingers, and its drier.   More citrus peel too.   More like a regular IPA, albeit the citrusy bitterness doesn’t last long.   Decent.

Zeswaft (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Can. Light copper color with a substantial amount of fine floaters. Boarderline too many. Aroma of caramel and pine hops. Flavor is nice and balanced. Caramel malts and pine and grapefruit. Surprisingly complex and flavorful fo a 4.5% IPA. All the flavors just a little thin on the mouthfeel. Possibly one of the best session IPA’s I’ve ever head.

nimbleprop (4809) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 22, 2014
16oz can pours a hazy orange with some swirling white head. Nose is nice, dusty hop pellets, lime, tangerine, orange, mild pine, mild soap, a hint of malt sweetness. Flavor is solid, lime, tangerine, soap, a little honey comb, some mild pine. Zesty, clean, refreshing finish. Very good.

pdx77 (1329) - Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2014
From can. Light golden with a lot of floating particles. Aroma is grapefruit and nectarine. Taste is ruby red grapefruit, lemon, and some bittersweet citrus. Drinks easily and has a lot of citrus flavor and pleasing bitterness.

pdx76 (617) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Can - pours cloudy golden with a ton of sediment and thick white head. Nose of grapefruit and hops. Taste is of mellow hop, orange grapefruit, and lemon. Almost tastes like a radler to me, very smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BuckeyeBoy (2692) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 16, 2014
On tap at bier thirty. Pours out a cloudy golden topped with a white head. Nose is citrus lemon grass orange and floral hops. Taste is all the hops combined with a nice cereal malt.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Hazy dark gold under a thin foamy white head. Nose is dank with some leafy farm picked hops and a bit of marajuana, maybe a touch of lime zest as well. Bitter leafy hop flavor on the front with some subtle dank weed tones, and a little mixed citrus zest. Earthy slightly resinous flavor on the finish.

skoisirius (1632) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Another dip into the Session IPA. This version gives you a really nice sweet malty nose that leads into similar flavors, hints of tropical fruits, a decent medium body, and a nice sour pine hop towards the finish.

jcartamdg (1942) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours a hazy orange gold with a thick white head. Aroma of grapefruit, grassy with sweet maltiness. Taste is bitter citrus, earthy notes with a malty backbone. Nice citrus forward session ipa

Tmoney99 (10570) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Can shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This a solid brew.
