This is my second, and last, " session" ipa. To me insipid in all aspects of taste along with a rough unpleasant finish. Anyhow will save some bucks by just sipping a good ipa or apa

Thanks southbierbro! Pours a bright pale yellow with a hint of haze with a white head. The smell is lemon, wort, hay, grass - fresh. The taste is lemon, grass, hay and wort as the smell indicated. Light in body with average carbonation. An easy drinker that has a fresh taste.

Thanks to John for sharing. Very floral
in the nose. Fresh and very dry. Nearly no sweetness. Dry, hoppy intense and floral with lots of citrus. The aftertaste is smooth, very dry, very bitter, floral and great! 13/12/12/13

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!
