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.

natejgood (476) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Pours very light hazy gold. Head as white as Santaís beard. Minimal bubbles resigning from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of oranges, honey and brown sugar. Interesting aroma for an IPA. Crisp light flavor. A bit of hoppy bitterness on the finish. None of the sweetness I was expecting based on the aroma. Beer is slightly fuzzy in the mouth. Pretty taste session IPA.

TheKernOwl (182) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2016
Piney, somewhat Creamy nose (due to brioche-y malt), but with a bit of grassy and [steak] pepper sauce. Pretty rounded fruits on the tongue (apple, lemon, pear?). Nice, but letís be honest - if the big selling point is flavour at low ABV, there are definitely better ones out there. UKís Siren QIPA is v good. Similar strength, but slightly better, from US is Stoneís Go-To IPA.

Ron (3552) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle. A light golden pour with a nice white head. Aroma is hoppy, light fruits, smells sweet. Flavor is mild. Itís crisp and refreshing. A lighter session IPA. The lower alcohol does make it a good choice for summer.

Strykzone (6640) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Clear white gold with a big fluffy white head. Interesting lacing. A nice big classic west coast IPA aroma with a lot of pine. The flavor has lesser pine with grass and lemon. Tropical fruit with mangoes and pears. I like a flavorful session IPA.

beer_rookie (383) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Pours a greenish yellow color. Slight haze. White head, about two fingers. Good retention, good lacing.

Aroma is pine bark, orange zest, mango. Itís light, but very nice.

Taste is pine resin, orange zest, mango. Bready, and grassy hops. It is pretty bright in the taste.

Mouthfeel is medium light. Itís clean, bright, refreshing. I think it does the trick. Great for sessioning.

Overall, itís good. I like the brightness of it. Good IPA qualities, but toned down. I would buy this again, I would probably recommend this. Itís not great as an IPA, but as a session IPA, I think itís one of the best.
