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: I’ve 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, it’s a simplistic, enjoyable small IPA.
M: I look for these kind of beers to be crisp and light - and this fits that criteria well. I’d 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, there’s only one so far I can say I loved (DayTime). Not to mention, session IPAs don’t make a huge amount of sense from a monetary standpoint. Having said that, between All Day and Centennial, I’d choose this one every single time.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light crisp ipa, typical American hops. Obviously not so full in body. I did enjoy it though but as it’s not really low abv I’d go with the normal ipa, as that has still lots more to offer. (33cl can from Beer City)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOTTLE 355 ML from Bov. No bottling date printed. Sweet tropical fruit in the nose, very little malts (a touch of honey maybe?), no pine or dank to balance the fruity sweetness. The taste is similar - tropical sweetness, clean moderate zesty bitter finish, and... a watery body in between. Good, but at 4,7%, even though „session”, I would expect at least some body from an IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle brought from Malt Attacks. Golden, foamy head that fades quickly. Not too much happening in the aroma, some exotic hoppiness. Metallic, exotic, hoppy taste. Good considering the ABV, but not much more than that. I prefer any low ABV De La Senne makes to this one!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of citrus rinds. Flavor is mild and somewhat bland. I know it’s a session beer, but I didn’t think that means its flavor needs to be so faded. Very thin and lacking any real body or significant mouthfeel. Not my type of IPA.
