Draft at The Beer Authority, Seattle. Bubbly head on more clear dark gold. Lighter body of course, much more like an amber-malt pale. Some hop, crisp certainly, but overall vacant malts. Very clean, some bittering on finish. Nice enough. ben4321 (6739) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Location: 12 oz can from Hoboken Vine, 5/15/15

Aroma: The aroma is mostly resiny/pine hops, some clean lemon/citrus hops come through too
Appearance: Clear and bright orange in color with a frothing, lasting beige head and sheeting lace
Flavor: A lightly sweet taste, very clean from a flavor perspective, with a medium bitter finish
Palate: It has a quite smooth and clean feel, a lighter body, soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Pretty much right on what I look for in a Session IPA. Nice flavor. Easy drinking. Low alcohol. It is a hint thin compared to the best ones, but otherwise, as you’d expect from Ballast Point, this is excellent.
It pours crystal clear golden copper with a beige head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit, toasty/cracker malt and some floral notes. It has a light body with a lot of moderate intensity carbonation. The taste is on the woody papery side with cracker and citrus zest. The finish is quite bitter. Pretty solid for a 3.8% beer. Think I prefer the mango version, but both are solid. egajdzis (6730) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Lightly hazy orange amber color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, light pine, citrus fruits, and some toast. Taste of citrus, pine, toffee, grapefruit, grass, and a bitter finish. obguthr (6659) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Can: Strong pine needle nose with pencil shavings also prominent, dandelions. Crystal clear amber, thick yellow head, good lacing. Grass and dandelions, kind of buttery, not really diacetyl, more like buttercups. Light body, easy carbonation. One of the better session IPAs available.

Canned version, golden color with no head, great floral citrus aroma and flavor, smooth body with light bread, good finish Suttree (6505) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Can from Bearden Beer Market. Orange, with a lot of white foam. Smells grassy, very green, and a good deal of citrus. Taste is grassy and citrusy hops, hint of caramel, and more hops in the finish. I liked it... jgb9348 (6482) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Light copper coloured body with a amber glow and a thin, soapy white head, only about a centimetre tall. Aroma of fresh grassy hops with a touch of herbs, soap and some very mild bitterness, but not much at all. Super light-bodied; Very mild flavour of grass, herbs, hops, resin and a faint bit of pine - the hops are noticeable, but very mild, and the beer goes down very easily given that there isn’t much malt here at all. Aftertaste shows the grass and hay with little else, a touch of light tropical fruit flavours and that’s about it. Overall, a good beer for the style - shows the hops, shows a touch of bitterness, a tiny bit of complexity, yet remains super easy to drink and doesn’t show any alcohol at all - perfect for the summertime, which is just about everyday in California! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 12-July-2015 for US$1,79 sampled on the train from Washington to New York (while in New Jersey) on 18-December-2015. dmac (6459) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2015
12oz can from Xroads. Poured a nice looking rusty orange with a large frothy eggshell colored head. Aroma/flavor of dry citrus rind, amber malts, grain, lemon, passion fruit and a slight touch of copper. Medium body with aggressive carbonation and a lingering dry bitterness. This is really good and then when you consider the ABV it’s like WOW!!! nuplastikk (6453) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2015 12oz can. $9.99 six pack. A great example of the style. First of all it is 3.8%, whereas most session IPAs tend to just sneak under 5.0%. Whatever...this is excellent either way. Solid, steady hop bill. Mellow citrus grapefruit tones fitting for the style. The malt has a little depth to it to, not the seltzer feel. Solid offering.
