Pours super clear gold, white frothy head. Aroma is clean pale malt, faint citrus, biscuit... Not much going on. Flavor is pretty much the same, a clean sessionable beer... But lacking flavor.

Cloudy golden color with white head. Citrus aroma with pineapple, papaya, and biscuit malt herbal finish. Really light watery citrus flavor with pineapple, some mineral chewiness, and grapefruit finish. Tastes nice but is too watery.

Quite nice although a little thin. Nice in aroma and taste but nothing else special to tell about it.

Soft, sunrise golden tan hue with a thinnish, but resilient head. Cold hope nose, with a gentle minerally touch. Touch of co-humulone in the body, watered down. Rounded, muted floral and bitter hop notes.

12 oz. bottle at Cost Plus. Distinct, pleasant citrus aroma. Hop bitterness up front, floral and grapefruit on a light, sweet, bready malt base. Finishes dry. Clean and crisp with good carbonation. Tasty and refreshing. A classic session IPA.

Bottle. Clear darker gold. Malted citrus aroma. The taste is heavy on garlic with light pale malts, very bland middle and finish. Decent but, not very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2015 Bottle 12/15/14
Light orange pour, decent head. Nose is dominated by tropical fruit -- pineapple in particular. The garlic comes on harder in the flavor, backed (but just barely) by cracker malts. The beer comes off as thin, but now that I see the 4% ABV this is more forgivable. Iím not sure why it is listed as a session IPA; it doesnít seem to carry the hop punch youíd expect for the style. That can be a very good thing in a well-balanced APA, but thatís not what is going on here. Iíd drink this one in a pinch at a conference or such, but thatís about it. 7/3/6/3/11=3.0
Revisit, can in Moab. This time it really hits the spot. A nice low abv pale ale (again, not a true session IPA), lots of tropical fruit in the nose. Iíd go more like 7/3/7/3/13=3.3. Iíll bump this up somewhat.
