Transfer from BA review on 2-3-14- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a light golden color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, fading to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a grapefruit citrus hop smell mixed with a bit of pine and grassy hops. Along with these smells are some lighter bready and caramel smells producing a mild but pleasant IPA smell. Taste – The taste begins with a cracker taste along with a bit of caramel and citrus sweetness. Some light pine hop tastes are present upfront, later being joined by some flavors of a grapefruit hop nature. The grapefruit grows stronger to the end of the taste with a grassy hop taste also coming to the tongue. Some more orange sweetness and caramel come to the tongue at the end of the taste, mixing with the nice hop profile to leave a smooth, slightly sweet, but moderately hopped and crisp taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel-The body of the beer is rather thin with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are fantastic for the lower abv. and sweeter flavors of the brew all while still supporting the hop taste to really produce a nice easy drinking IPA. Overall – A very nice session at only 4.5 % abv. A flavorful and nicely hopped beer with a great drinkability.

A very nice, hoppy, light, almost airy session IPA that has a mild flowery and citrus taste to it. It's not very strong but would make a lovely summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2015 *is this the same beer as the hop ticket version? -- this one seems to have more of a dry, peppery, pilsner element -- with less juicy hop presence -- if my memory serves me correctly... assuming that, I would rate this lower as a session ipa, but it is definitely a very well balanced, light, hoppy pilsner type brew...just not great hop dimension...a bit too dry and bitter to get high ratings as a session ipa... hop ticket: aroma is apple skin, hay and dry pine - flavor has dry green apple, melon, sap, and dry citrus -- not too dank but still interesting - great stuff

nuplastikk (4852) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2014
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy yellow-tan body. Excessively foamy head, took awhile to pour the whole bottle into the glass. Still before the best by date, but probably a little past its prime. Still has a nice bright hop bill...maybe amarillo, some citrus tones. Highly sessionable as intended, and pretty boldly hopped. Pretty good stuff.

gripweed57 (824) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Light golden with a big rocky white head. Fragrant pine hop aroma. Subtle bitter hop flavor upfront is balanced nicely by a toasted malt background. Slightly bready malt character yields to a dry peppery hop finish. Very drinkable as one would expect for a Session IPA.

Leafs93 (1792) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pours pale gold with a small to medium white head. Aroma is citrus, herbal and floral...smells great. Taste is sweet with a big dose of hoppy bitterness up front that slowly mellows. Light bodied with a smooth texture. A very solid, may I say exceptional Session IPA.
