5.6% is considered a session ale? I need to get off this planet. It’s a good beer, but please - session should not be mentioned in this bible book. Low rankings purely on the misleading name. Please. Call me an asshole. nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle from AZ Wine. Filtered amber color with a frothy beige head. Smells odd. Distant hops, toffee, red licorice. Tastes of sweet malts, cardamom, pale malt. Too candy shop. bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2012
Clear amber body with short head. Oranges on the aroma, medium body, grapefruit and light caramel notes. Tasty. tnkw01 (1756) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle. Copperish-amber color. Decent head. Aroma, that pleasant floral hop aroma not the nasty one. Same with the taste. Nice delish floral-citrus hops taste with slight malt undertones. Not bad. IPA_Monster (2) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 3, 2012 does not count
Picked this one up at Whole Foods from the bottle. Beer poured a dark haze with nice lacing. Pleasant citrus aroma and nice initial flavor. However, the finish was rather bland/weak without the expected bite. Thus, I would say it’s smooth but not particularly memorable.

12 ounce bottle. Not quite sure where I got it. Pours a clear amber color with a thin creamy off-white head. Decent head retention. Citrus hop aroma with caramel malts. The taste is bitter citrus hops and caramel malts. Medium bodied, refreshing, moderate lingering bitterness, high carbonation. Straightforward and very drinkable.

Comes out of the tap an opaque dark honey-golden with a thick, fine-bubbled, pale wheat head. Aroma is VERY hoppy, more woody than evergreen, with fruity and malty hints. Flavor is mainly hoppy, quite bitter and woody, with malty and fruity notes and a whisper of honey. Firm, ragged texture has plenty of life and fizz. If you like IPAs, this one is for you. Dry-hopped beers rock! esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Cloudy amber with a medium slowly fading tan head. Aroma is floral and earthy with some caramel beneath. Taste is floral with caramel, burnt malt and mild bitterness. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle. Copper colored clear. Faint citrus hop aroma. Head vanishes fast. Nice flavor for a session ale.

Instantly became one of my favorite pale ales. It is very well balanced unlike a lot of so-called pale ales out there. It has a nice sweetness from the hops on the front of the tongue, then gives you a bit of bitterness as well as body/mouthfeel to balance out the bitterness as it heads back in your tongue and down your throat.
