MadRobin (1869) - Silver Spring, USA - JUL 29, 2014
On tap at Scion restaurant in Silver Spring, MD. Clear, bright yellow with an off-white head and fair to good lacing. Aroma of herbal and citric hops, bread and toast. Taste of citrus (mainly sweet lemon and tangerine), herbal hops, white bread, light fruit and toast. Medium body and medium/low carbonization. While there is nothing exceptional about this beer, it is pleasant and enjoyable. You could easily order this beer all evening and enjoy the last one as much as the first. Perhaps, that in itself is exceptional. I'm more of a two and done person, but it's certainly nice to see that tasty session brews are becoming more widely available. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nephilium (1326) - Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Moderate floral hop aroma, pours a clear light yellow with a thin white head. The flavor is predominantly hops, with spicy notes and a long bitter finish. Very light bodied and easy drinking. Not a bad beer, but I would much rather reach for a real IPA.

HonkeyBra (3280) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pale golden pour with a medium white head. Aroma of herbal hops, lemon, and floral notes. Flavor is hop forward and crisp, mild malt backing. Moderate bitterness. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes hoppy. This is a pretty good session IPA.

ttutony (639) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Mild hop aroma. Balanced citrus and resin hops on the palate with a toast, bread, and slightly caramel malt backbone. Nice session beer for when you want some hops in the mix.

radio_nowhere (757) - Maryland, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle from summer selections pack into snifter glass, clear golden color with slightest amber hue and bright white head. Aroma of grapefruity/lemon hops and faint grass. Taste adds notes of earthy/piney hop bitterness, orange peel and biscuit. Light body, low-moderate carbonation, dry, astringent with bitter hoppy finish. Its powerful for being so light bodied, good and obviously sessionable!

tom10101 (2664) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle (12 oz). Enjoy by 15 oct 2014. Courtesy of Minderbinder, thanks! Slightly hazy bright golden with a medium easy to revive white head and some lacing. Aroma is of grapefruits, cereals, lemony notes and grassy notes. Taste is of grapefruits, cereals, light but effective malt backbone, lemon, grassy notes and light bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Dry finish. Crisp. Clean. Super drinkable and quenching. Very good!

RyanK (180) - Rhode Island, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a clear bright yellow with sparse sediment floating around in it. Very bubbly and has a white fizzy head that quickly fizzes down to lacing. Smells light, grapefruit pineapple lemon flavors shine bright and no malt. These flavors shine through in the taste, I would definitely say it is bright and crisp as described. Definitely packs a hop punch but has no malt and makes this beer as incomplete as any other session IPA. The finish fades out bitter and leaves you wanting more, but I mean more out of this beer.

Pailhead (4635) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate citrus, tropical fruits,grapefruit, and a touch of grass. It pours a transparent dull yellow/gold with some sediment that float to the bottom of the glass. It has a two finger white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There are some soapy rings left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with starts with a quick dose of light sweet citrus with a hint of tropical fruit. The finish has moderate grapefruit, light dank flavors, faint lemon peel, and a touch of grass/straw. Its light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, I really dig Session IPAs and this is very tasty. Id like to see this in its own 6-pack.
