Great smell and initial hoppy taste but it?s quickly replaced by something kind of watery and a little irrelevant which is a bit of a shame.

12 oz. can. Pours a hazy gold color with a brief white head that settles to an almost non-existent film. Aroma is a good mix of citrus and pine hops with a malt background. Like the aroma, the taste leans to the hops but there is some malt mixed in. The finish is a little dry with the pine hops coming to the forefront and I get a little fruit too. This tastes like a stronger IPA, but the lower ABV is welcome. Good one!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opalescent darker golden to orange colour, moderate sized yellowish head, which disappears quite quickly; aroma of pine resin, overripe tropical fruits, mango, green tea notes and some minimal bread; a bit watery taste with tropical fruits, resins, green tea again, grapefruit and some caramel; refreshing beer; perfect choice for a hot summer evening

As far as session IPAs go, this one never disappoints. Always easy to get and drinkable.
Nice aroma with enough IBUs to make a hop head sober all day.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is what all the rage is about? Props for keeping the abv low while retaining character but this is wildly overrated. Aroma and taste are both unfinished and lacking. Dry and palate hanging finish is oily and piney but again weak. Id pass on this one.

Pours clear golden with a white head. Nice balanced malt base with plenty of hops. Dry and bitter finish. Nothing exciting, but a decent solid session beer.

Citrus hop aroma. Pours golden with a bunch of a head. Taste is just kind of bitter. Low hop flavor. Not quite sweet. Some yeast flavor I think. Unexciting. Thin body.
