Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a light orange/gold with a finger-width of white head on top. Light retention. The nose is bursting with citrus and pine needles! Sharp and inviting aroma. The mouth is crisp and clean. Easy finish. This beer starts out with a nice bitter smack, but this hesitates and finishes with a sweet citrus flavor of orange and tangerine. Well balanced. This cures my craving for the bitterness, but is also quite refreshing and easy to consume. Not the standard for IPAs no doubt, but this one holds its own while also taking on some characteristics of a "sessioner" - lighter ABV, clean, tasty. I liked it.

A good session ale that went well with a chicken and aubergine curry(eggplant!. Not my favourite session ale but I would go back to it again. I had this draught on a trip to Cape Cod at Local 186 burger bar and it holds up well in the bottle too, although draught wins hands down. Mild on the hop front in comparison to many US IPA’s. Good beer.

Bottle. Pours an orange amber with a good-sized, white head. Aroma is pine grapefruit and passionfruit. Taste is much of the same. Light with strong carbonation. Nice drinkability.

Session IPAs have their place in the warmer months during the daytime hours, where drinking a high ABV, full bodied beer just doesn’t seem like a good idea. This Founders offering pours a light bodied yellow gold and exudes lots of earthy and fruit-forward hop notes. Definitely get some clementines, nectarine and grapefruit. Thin bodied mouthfeel with soda-water carbonation. This beer is a showcase of the marvels of dry hopping. Lots of delicious hoppiness packed into a smaller profile. Lacks depth and backbone compared to its APA, IPA and DIPA brethren, but definitely fills a gap for beer drinkers or want something light but wouldn’t be caught dead with a macro light, shandy or hefe.

This Indian pale ale at only 4.7% were said to be the ultimate way to celebrate life’s small pleasures and the perfect gift for a day’s honest work. I could not agree more, after a walk in the garden, this American pale ale (or IPA) is a great brewed experience. Partly cloudy yellow / orange color with a somewhat weak foam, which provide very little lace on the glass. The fragrance is adorned with American hops which provide a nice citrus and pine aroma. A little dry, but what a fresh and delicious hoppy flavor of citrus fruits like lemon and orange. The beer is dry hopped to give a long lasting flavor with a pleasant bitter aftertaste, as the beer seem good and rich, despite the "low" rates. Damn who, however, have a whole box of this wonderful hoppy summer drink.

On tap at a local bar. Pleasant and easy drinking beer. Light and easy to go down. Nice hop flavor but not too strong. Did notice some cardboard like after taste. May be old stock?

Bottle. Hazy copper body with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, flowers. Taste is clean and crisp fruity hops of the tropical kind, with a light piney finish. A really nice example of a "low abv" ipa

The name says it all: easy to drink anytime, but still has a lot of character and flavour! Perfectly balanced hoppy citrus flavour with a solid malt body.

Bottle 33cl. Light Amber with a minimal white head. Very hoppy nose with some citrus and floral sence. Medium bitter with a nice hippy end. Impressive aroma and taste for this low alc. Beer.

12oz can from a 15 pack. Aroma and taste of pine. Easy to put more than a few of these down. This is currently my go to session beer. Cheers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one came in a can from a 12 pack. It pours an amber yellow with a short lived head. The malt was a simple cereal profile with a slight hay component. The hops followed distinctly with a resin/spruce blend and finished clean without an over lingering of hop juice. Definitely All Day material.
