12oz bottle thanks to Eric. Pours out a crisp golden topped with a white head. Nose is light grassy hops and some floral notes. Taste is more of the nice grassy hops and some floral notes.

Draft at the source. Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma is mango, orange, grapefruit. Very fruity. Flavor is light malts, mango, orange. Grapefruit peel bitterness in the finish. Full bodied and flavorful for a session. Well done.

AirForceHops (8171) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 1, 2015
12 oz. bottle at Julio’s Liquor Brewfest. Hazy yellow color with thin head in a 3 oz sample glass. Aroma is a myriad of fruits, grapefruit zest, orange, maybe peach and light resin.

The fruit is the first thing that hits my tongue and after would a modest grain bill. The finish has some pine. The thing I always get from a session IPA is a light watered down mouthfeel. This does NOT feel watery; I really appreciate that because it’s not easy to make a session feel like a higher gravity ale. The hop profile also gives a larger flavor then what it is. Wow, a session IPA done correctly. Nice job here.

ClarkVV (7050) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Undated bottle from Downtown liquors, drunk 8/7/15.
Good, frothy pour with a clear, peachy-gold body. White head is well-retained.
Soft tangerine, spongecake, lemon icing and some more robust spruce-like notes make their way out in the aroma. Clean, as always from Ipswich, with good attenuation and no astringency problems. No alcohol or flaws, low acidity/resin.
Straightforward citrus melange in the flavor also shows a little more challenging pine while lemons, tangerines and some strong grassiness round out the profile. Medium-dry body has a crackery-like malt texture, with ample carbonation and no alcohol or flaws. Not going to win the GABF gold, but it’s just another clean, well-made, unremarkable beer from Ipswich. Can certainly get behind that.

Bottle from the mix-pack. Pours out a clear light amber. Huge complex evergreen-floral-spice aromas and flavors. Light body. Lingering light finish. Great hop profile. A very impressive session IPA.

emacgee (4721) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Pours a clean light copper amber with one to two fingers of sandy off-white head. Nose shows citrus and bright resin with a light garlicy/onion note and fresh/green hop character. Grassy bitterness in the flavor with some toasted malt notes and very light bodied. Grassy and very light and dry.

3.2
BVery (11491) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Clear light gold pour with a white head. Very soft all around, with a bit of carbonation bite on the tongue. Slightly dry finish. Nice citrus / tropical fruit notes.

BroSpud (2303) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 28, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours a pale golden with a white head. Surprising amount of flavor i such a lightweight IPA. Nice citrus hop notes, very drinkable. Good beer to have on hand.

3.1
crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JAN 16, 2015
A golden body with a nice white head that had good retention and lace. A mild aroma of floral and citrus hops and some light toasted malts. Flavor was mild and well balanced. Slightly dry in the finish. Okay I guess. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
