Nice malt balance with hood punching though. Hazy golden color and very easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wchesser (1670) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Slightly cloudy deep yellow. Nose is green and citrus hops, slightly earthy. Flavor follows with nice hop bitterness. Has that odd slightly pool chemically thing going on I always get from session IPAs, but less than most.

BroSpud (1947) - , Massachusetts, USA - JAN 31, 2016
12oz can purchased in Warren, VT. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Delicious IPA, probably the finest session IPA money can buy.

blueshockey24 (184) - Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Can. Pours cloudy straw/hay color with thick white head. Aroma is Grapefruit and Pineapple citrus. Taste is sweet pine/dank with a little pineapple and a bitter hoppy grapefruit finish. Great session.

hackobock (2766) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2016
July 16, 2015. On tap at Three Penny Taproom.
Light hazy golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity with orange, grapefruit, pineapple, light herbal and some biscuit notes. Taste is light to medium sweet, medium bitter. Finish is light dry grassy and herbal bitterness, light sweet fruitiness with some pineapple and orange. Light to medium bodied, slight oily soft carbonation.
Great session IPA with a quite creamy texture for the low ABV.

Stoned99 (843) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2016
On tap at Blackback Pub. Aroma: loads of citrus which I enjoy. App: clear golden, small white head and good lacing. Taste and palate: thin body, fruity but not that much, on the limit of being watery, moderate high carbonation, medium bitter finish. Overall: easy to drink, maybe a bit too much carbs for a session. Anyway, good session ipa.

rodenbach99 (3775) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2016
En fût au Blackpack. Une bière jaune dorée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez peu bavard à la limite fade. La bouche est sur le même registre avec une drôle d’amertume herbacée. Elle est fade et manque de oumphe.

PhatB420 (792) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 27, 2015
12oz can into glass. Pours a modest tan peach. Firm white, fluffed head, cloud lacing. Aroma of a danty ipa, cone hops, pine, orange, melon. Taste of the same, yet missing the hop bite in in end, substituted by a rather bland diet beer taste, such is the session. Great aroma, poundable, decent.

canary dog (724) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Amazingly fresh and fluffy. Although rich, west coast hops define this beer, it doesn’t ever become cloying or sticky. In fact, it is almost quaffable. Refreshing and light for such a style, but also remarkably flavorful.

Stine (1734) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2015 Bright, pale hued orange. Powerfully dank and softly spicy dry-hopped aroma and flavor. Dried herbs provide some snappiness amidst the resins. Field grasses and hints of metallic, earthy tang keep the citrus piths and white peach juices from shining so brightly. Simple honeyed grains are there in adequate, balancing quantity. An herbal, weedy dry-hopped chill pervades the flavor. Lean and addictively crisp mouthfeel. There is no outstanding piquancy here or stunning tropical fruit clarity; this isn’t emotive, it’s effective.
