Bottle from Habersham, Savannah. It pours clear orange with a small white head. The nose is fresh pine, orange, tangerine, tinned fruit and light toast.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours amber with a thin off white head. Not much for aroma, a bit of fruity hop. Flavor is nice, a pretty mellow IPA which is more my speed. The big thing about this beer is the amount of flavor they got in it for a low ABV, very impressive and lives up to the name. I could have had a few more of these.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden color; Light to medium body; Aroma of rich floral hops, pine, & citrus; Flavor of malt, pine hops, some caramel, and citrus; Finish is slightly bitter; Nicely balanced; Overall, comes across a little too light (maybe thatís the point) - but a solid session IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Tap East Festival. Light gold with a small head. The nose is countryside meadow. Light grassy hops. A bit of lemon cake and bread. The taste is light floral hops, grass. Fairly soft and approachable. Some brioche. Light bitter finish. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, a pretty easy-drinking beer. Not taxing on the palate. The kind of thing youíd bring to a BBQ on a warm day, I guess.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. I gave the appearance a 1 because I obviously couldnít fairly judge it in a bottle. That being said this beer is great! A beer that has a soft malty finish, an IPA you can actually drink ALL DAY.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a moderately clear amber color. The head is about one finger high and white, with a somewhat rough-looking texture. It retains itself alright, though, and leaves some lacing on the side of the glass.
S: Iíve noticed how I kind of like catty IPAs, and this one fits that mold. The hops also provide melon, mango, and herbal notes. There is a touch of sweetness, as well.
T: The first sip strikes me weirdly with its finishing herbal hop tones. After another sip, it smooths out nicely. There are twinges of juicy tropical fruits on the front end; I wish this was more pronounced. Otherwise, itís a simplistic, enjoyable small IPA.
M: I look for these kind of beers to be crisp and light - and this fits that criteria well. Iíd enjoy it more if some of the finishing astringency was cleaned up a touch, but this still has good drinkability.
O: Good, not great. As much as I love trying these session IPAs, thereís only one so far I can say I loved (DayTime). Not to mention, session IPAs donít make a huge amount of sense from a monetary standpoint. Having said that, between All Day and Centennial, Iíd choose this one every single time.

Just like it says on the bottle, this beer is very session-able. Aroma of hops. A clean and crisp flavor with a mild sweetness and a soft bite at the finish. Thanks for the trade JB.
