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.

Tastes appropriately for something low abv but with ipa ingredients. Like an ipa light. Has a weak, sorta watery finish but the flavors are all there. Pungent but not too much. Itís weird because I like big ipas but this beer exists to be drinkable. Good for a football game if you donít want to drink lager

Approximately 15 pints from a keg at the beach. Shitty phone notes during this mass consumption. I did barely get tired of this beer by the end, but this is certainly an All Day drinker. Golden orange pour with large dense white head. Scent is mostly citrus and pine with a minor malt baking. Taste is the same. Mild bitterness, extremely sessionable.

A bottle at home. Nice, smooth and easy to drink. The taste has sweet malts, which are balanced by sensible amount of bitterness.

A very friendly beer for those new to IPA style beer. It has a low ibu count which makes it not too bitter and hence the reason itís considered a session beer. An overall great taste!

Pours a clear amber with a foamy white head. Smells of grapefruit, pine, hint of baked bread in malts. Taste is bitter and moderately sweet - spruce and citrus hops with a mild malt backing.
