12 oz can poured. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a big foam head. This beers has an amazing, lemony hop aroma. Very light, and it’s no secret. Watery hop flavor, though not bad. Finishes a little empty. All things considered, this is a decent session. Just lacks a little in flavor. I can drink these all day though.

[3/2/15] Draught at Fremont Brewing in Seattle. Slightly hazy gold. Aroma of some butter and slightly fruity hops. Flavor has some butter, fruity hops and a bitterish finish. Light-bodied. Could’ve been very nice without the diacetyl.

12 oz single can from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Pale, light orange and hazy appearance with a lingering, sticky white head. Aroma of citrus, pale malts, bread, floral notes, pine and a touch of hop resin. Similar flavor, grainy, husky and moderately bitter with a touch of sweetness. Light and easy to drink, but pretty average for a SIPA.

So tasty. However it's really an IPA lite. This may be cool on the east coast but out west it's too light. Session style it fun. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Purchased from Mile High. Canned on January 5, 2015. This is a good looking, very clear light amber beer with a ring of a white head. Aroma is very, very good. This is one of the best smelling beers I’ve had in a short while. Real, pungent hop aromas of pine and citrus with gentle melon pop out. Palate is light, of course, but perfect for the style. Straightforward hop delivery with loads of citrus and pine flavor, but without aggressive bitterness. This is very clean and a great representation of a session IPA. There is a persistent crackery, nutty flavor that sets this one apart from others in the style. Something other than pale malt and crystal is making itself well known. Great beer.

Slightly hazy light gold with a rocky/foamy white head. Nice bitter leafy and slightly lemony hop aroma with a bit of sweet cracker malt behind it. Lovely flavor that has a nice caramel/cracker/nutty tone from start to finish, even lingering a bit, with a lovely balancing floral/grassy hop bite (mostly at the start--the finish is almost all malt.) Definitely quaffable yet nicely bitter with a gentle citric bitterness/sweetness.
