What a fantastic IPA! Aroma is an IPA-style hops, not real bitter, but yet incredibly great-tasting. The low alcohol is welcome too. The variety of hops is what makes this beer shine. The name is perplexing, but I do like the concept of a getting a great taste without the snobbish attitude – a working man’s IPA. Love this beer, don’t see how it could be any better.

This poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of tropical and.citrusy hops. Flavor was similar, a bit watery, bit its a session ipa, it should be hop water.

Yes, there are tons of beers just like this one out there but very few for this price point. Pours a clear light yellow with a white head. Aromas of big citrus , mango, tangerine, lime. Taste is well balanced for the style. Sweet upfront with a slight bitter crisp finish. Great session IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from total wine. A bit aggressive on the aroma with light sweetness but there are some nice citrus hops working in there. Flavor has a lot of light citrus, orange, touch of lemon. Light caramel malt to round things out a bit. Good sessionable but there are a million others I could reach for that are just as good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light copper body under a fizzy one finger off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is a little too sweet with crystal malt, but there’s some decent citrusy hops in there. The flavor is pretty thin, some light sweet caramel and crystal malt under a minimally bitter floral and citrusy hoppiness. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a short finish. Pretty boring and bland stuff.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear straw yellow with a thin lace of white head. Aroma is mainly bitter pine hops with light sweet citrus. Flavor is an effervescent citrus with some muscadine grape notes on the back end. For the price this is a highly enjoyable IPA albeit a bit shallow, but I guess that is why it is marketed as a session ale. If you have the choice between this and some other standard domestic beer I recommend giving it a shot.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear golden pour with a nice sized white head. Aroma is primarily floral with light citrus. Nice body, medium carbonation. More floral hops, some pine. Feels and tastes more substantial than the low abv. Good session brew.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice clear orangey amber with a frothy ivory head. Hey aroma has an undertone of orange and grapefruit. Flavor is so-so, hoppy, a little fruity, a mite malty, not much but palatable. Texture has average thickness and little fizz. OK, give ’em a chance - they’re all about just beer.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear light amber colour. Lots of piney and slightly floral hops. Some diacetyl underneath that. Taste is quite a bit heavier on the diacetyl, and though it has a fair bit of hop bitterness, it’s not enough to cover it up. Really missing the point of session IPA.
