Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Light floral notes with an undertone of lemon. Pours a clear amber with a full white head. Mild floral notes with a touch of sweet lemon coming through, fading to a bitterness with a touch of rind. The lemon is subdued in this one but there. Light bodied, not a bad session IPA. ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 6, 2016
12 oz. bottle from Meijer; best by 8/2016. Aroma: Dried floral notes nearly balanced with lemon; lighter, but present cereal malts. Appearance: Pours a mostly clear light copper with soft carbonation holding up a foamy bone head that settles into a bubbly skin. Flavor: More lemony than floral, but the lemon notes have an almost detergent-like quality; more cereals midway through and onward; the finish is mostly dry and lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: The lemon/floral mixture here was odd to me, but certainly not a bad beer by any means.

12 oz bottle best by 08/11/16. Pours clear orange with a white head. Just about the definition of a session ipa. Light and crisp. Could definitely drink this all day.
They should can it! Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Light refreshing floral citrusy hop aroma with a hint of lemon Come from this clear medium yellow brew. Lightish body and hop flavor up front. There's a sweetish flavor trying to sneak it's way in trying to balance bitter and sweet. Does well. There is a slight lemon flavor but the aftertaste is bitter with more lemon. Not a bad brew DialSquare (5123) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2016

superspak (5890) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2016
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 8/3/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, orange peel, light pine, light honey, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops, lemon, and light-moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, orange peel, pine, light honey, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/citrus rind/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, orange rind, pine, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops, lemon, and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and no astringent hop flavors after the finish. Good dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately sticky, and lightly bready/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very nice session IPA All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops, lemon, and light-moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering. Bill Becker (1370) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Pours a clear gold with good head of foam.
Smells hoppy with notes of lemon citrus and hint of bread.
Light bitterness with lemon zest. Light presence of malt that leans towards the bready side. Pretty balanced for this not my favorite style.
Light bodied and pretty drinkable.

Light copper pour with white head. Aroma is grain and mild citrus. Taste is watered down version of what I would expect from deschutes. JohnGalt1 (1721) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 29, 2016
12oz bottle from the COOP.. pours polished straw... foamy white head... earthy pale malt with a perfectly balanced citrusy hoppiness... I dig the whole "session" movement, and I think Deschutes actually hooked earlier than most, but never really put anything out there until now.. . IndianaRed (4941) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 28, 2016
On Tap at Bittercreek, Boise slightly hazy orange/golden. Nice heavy thick lacing Light bodied but still a nice malt profile. A touch biscuity and nice fresh mostly piney hop flavors for a session.
