4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Brass Monkey, NY. Clear deep golden color with thin creamy white head, good lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of strong citrus and floral hops, grassy, biscuit malt and mild yeast. Taste starts with moderate sweet malt, following is citric and grassy sour, while finish is moderate bitter with long aftertaste. Full body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Pleasantly refreshing everyday IPA...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Drafts at Ginger Man NYC, 11/23/13
Aroma: The aroma is clean and light hops, citrus and floral, and some light malt notes
Appearance: This beer pours a copper color with a decent sized white head atop it
Flavor: The taste is clean and light with a nice blend of hop bitterness and mild sweetness
Palate: Light bodied, with a low ABV and plenty of drinkability as is common among session IPAs
I thought this was a more than solid example of the style. I could easily drink a ton of these, and it is a perfect beer for that. That being said, it isn’t particularly exceptional in any of its components. Just a well-made, very drinkable, low ABV IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can into a pint glass.
Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a thin fizzy white head. Really nothing in the way of head retention or lacing.
Aroma of fruity and grassy hops really punches through along with what I can only describe as a "Schlafly aroma" that I detect in many of their brews. The light citrus is pleasing, though.
More lemon/lime citrus in the taste and it follows the smell nearly exactly. Some hay and grass in there as well along with a touch of light malt. Bitterness is fairly light and the mouthfeel is thin and water but that is to be expected. Very crisp and dry finish.
Overall, this beer is a decent session IPA but not one of the best out there. I much prefer Founders All Day IPA and Lagunitas Daytime. Still, it’s ok for what it is.
