Sampled from a bottle purchased at Fortnum and Mason. Pours a pale golden colour with a white head. Light aroma, but bright citrus hop flavours. The malt and grain base is quite light, but there are plenty of interesting flavours - lime, grapefruit, orange and grass - from the hops. Moderately bitter finish, and not too astringent. Pleasant American-style IPA. skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Pours light copper with a half finger white head which fades to decent lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, dank hops. tropical fruits, sand some grassy hops. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with the addition of some light bready malts. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi-moderately bitter, medium finish. Overall, a tasty, easy drinking session IPA. Dredd (938) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2014
Pour is light apricot amber with thin head. Spicy aroma with a good whack of stone fruit. Flavor is a restrained ipa with plenty of malt, singer fruit and an affirmative finish but not cloying. As the name sessional implies, more than one can be drunk without destroying the palate. Trappist1 (646) - Diest, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2014

From notes. Tasted on 6/5/13 on draft at The Bridge during a baseball trip with Adam and Taylor, and several times in cans since it has come to Nashville. Pours bright orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to rocky, average, sticky lace. The nose is bright citrus and somewhat herbal hops with just a touch of light grainy cereal malt. The flavor is all about the bright, light citrus, a touch of floral fruit, with just enough of the cereal malt for a backbone. The body is light with a somewhat sticky texture, average carbonation, and a long bright citrus, lightly bitter finish.

@ Archive in a can. Pretty good aromas and flavours packed into a moderate 4.7% mmmbeer (1419) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2014
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent enlightened copper color when held to a light source, white ring around the vessel for a head with no lacing upon it, high-light carbonation. Hearty aroma of pine and citrus. Hits the mouth with a medium body, hops have mellowed a little because it’s been sitting in my fridge for about a month- but it still packs a good size punch. Middle has a the peak of the hop wave, followed by some good size acidity on the finish with a twang of caramel. It works for me! obe83 (75) - Livorno, ITALY - DEC 22, 2014
La birra da tutti i giorni di nome e di fatto!!! Bionda chiara con poca schiuma bianca che però persiste. Al naso è profumatissima. Tutto il bouqet tipico dei luppoli americani, erbaceo, resinoso agrumato e anche qualche sentore di frutti tropicali prepara perfettamente a quello che ti aspetti in fase di beva. Infatti gli odori freschi si ritrovano anche in bocca, con note di crosta di pane data dal malto, perfettamente bilanciati col finale amaricante persistente e piacevolissimo (42 IBU). La bassa gradazione alcolica, il corpo medio e la carbonazione abbondante la rendopno di una facilità di bevuta disarmante. Stessi in america ne potresti bere un "growler" a pasto!!! Ideale per dissetarsi in estate!!! TOP!!! SotallyTober (94) - Channahon, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours a light copper with thin off white head. No lacing present. There’s a pine, herbal, and mild fruit aroma. Flavor’s of lemon, pine, grass, and floral notes. Medium/ light body that’s dry and bitter on the palate. Nice overall session IPA.
