COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes you want a beer, then you realize how much crap you need to do before you call it a day. This is it. Nicely dosed with Big, Round Hop Flavors and a Toasty Malt Foundation to satisfy your every need. But it still lets you stay in the game to do what needs to be done. Yup.

Golden brew with lots of pine and cedar aroma. Taste is loaded with pine hops. So while it smells and tastes great it is thin and watery and for the low ABV it has the big ABV price. Had been looked at this one but had been turned away by the low alcohol content but then HEB finally pulled some packs to sell as singles. Now I can say I tried it and yes it is good but still not something I will purchase again.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 On tap at Beer Keyaki shared by Todd from Beercats. A clear light gold with a substantial foamy head & great lacing. Medium bodied. The taste is very bitter, piney, ascerbic but clean. A good session IPA for those who wants bitterness. ---Lagunitas Daytime IPA 4.65% Bottle from CBB 605 yen. It has a great sweet floral/citrusy hop bouquet that is more my speed than the Soul Style IPA from Green Flash. Light straw gold color to accompany a light verging on thin body. This falls prey to the session IPA trap of a body that is too light. The taste is sweet, fruits, herbacious hops and prickly piney bitter hops but well balanced. Tasty. As I continue drinking it the hops build up giving me pine bark & more fruitiness. Very promising in a sessionable ale. Was better the second time around from the bottle.

Pours a yellow-orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, cracker malts, light tropical fruits, and light dankness. Taste is similar to the with some light toasted malts. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi-moderately bitter, medium finish. Overall,a tasty, refreshing session IPA that is just a tad below Stone’s Go To.

Incredibly, incredibly impressed. I always thought a session IPA was oxymoronic. This totally proves me wrong. Completely solid, and <5% ABV to boot. Color me impressed! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light, straw color with a white head. Aroma is slightly grassy and floral. Lightly hoppy and crisp, great summertime IPA. Wife: 4.1

My idea. I speak. People mumble. They listened. Now you can get IPA flavor in a bottle without getting stupid drunk. You’re welcome.

rougeau13 (2119) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Citrusy caramel aroma. Lightly malty, mostly hoppy, semi-bitter flavor. Light-medium bodied with average bubbles. Certainly an above average session beer.

Very drinkable. Good but light hop profile. Floral and citrus notes. Refreshing. Great for a hot day

Pours a clear golden yellow with light white head. Very floral on the nose, some pine and grapefruit too; all follow onto the palate, with the floral notes dominating. Finishes with hop resin.

[Bottle] Yellow in color with a small cap of white head. Floral and spice in the nose. Taste is of citrus, pine cones, tropical fruits and mild caramel. Nice mouthfeel and body for the style. Happy to see them brew this session beer.
