Sometimes you want a beer, then you realize how much crap you need to do before you call it a day. This is it. Nicely dosed with Big, Round Hop Flavors and a Toasty Malt Foundation to satisfy your every need. But it still lets you stay in the game to do what needs to be done. Yup.

The only one of these session ipas to flood the market I really like so far. Achieved a balance and feel of a beer instead of hop water. Very nice dank weed tasting profile.

Poured from a bottle a very light straw color with a thin white head. Aroma is very floral, peach and apricot. Light bitter and lively carbonation. Abrupt finish. Its got potential, and probably nails its goal of being a "day time" beer.

Nice aggressive hop profile in the aroma - problem is it feels a bit thin and lacks a syrupy malt body to carry the hops. It feels a tad thin.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2014 the more I drink this, the more I realize how balanced the resinous hop flavors and malts are - nothing bitter, nothing too caramelly just a straight forward, light, but resinous brew>>> aroma isnt big - some nice pine and tangerine aromas with a bit of earthiness - flavor a bit bigger with some nice depth - smooth dry pine, mango jam, and some light toasty malt sweetness - very low bitterness, no dankness - just smooth and very well balanced with a nice sappy hop background - follow up a more bitter brew with this and itll surprise you...

Light yellow pour with full nose of grapefruit. Nice bitter taste. Med carbonation with bitter aftertaste. A little thin but to be expected for the abv. Well above average session.

Transfer from BA review on 5-12-14- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance The beer pours a clear golden yellow color with a one finger head of white foam. Tons of carbonation bubbles can be seen streaming up through the brew. The head fades over a moderate amount of time leaving a fantastic level of foamy rings of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell For a session IPA, the aroma of the beer surprisingly heavy on the grapefruit hop smell. Along with the more bitter grapefruit are some other aromas of a tangerine and mango sweetness with a little bit of a grassy and cracker aroma as well Overall the aroma is rather nice. Taste The taste begins with a smooth bready flavor mixed with a little bit of a grapefruit hop taste. As the taste advances the breadiness remains as a base for the brew, with it being joined later on by a little bit of a grainy taste toward the end. All the while the little bit of orange and caramel flavor that are present upfront seem to intensify in nature as the flavor moves on to the end. Later on in the taste, as the grapefruit hop increases a bit in intensity, other flavors of a lemongrass and a light floral hop taste come to the tongue. With these new found hop flavors and the nice increase in the sweeter and malty flavors of the brew, a very smooth, yet moderately hopped and enjoyable flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel For an only 4.6 % abv brew, the body of the beer is on the thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. While normally a lighter body and very high carbonation would be better for the session style, for amplifying the malt and the hop the slightly thicker (at least for a 4.6 % abv.) and lower carbonation do the brew nicely and really make this a nice session IPA. Overall This is so far the best session IPA that I have had. Unlike most session IPA, it has a degree of balance due to a more malty and sweet presence and doesnt taste like I am drinking hops mixed with water. This was very enjoyable session IPA and one I would certainly recommend.

Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours attractively enough, very pale with a big white head and lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is fruity with melon and grapefruit being the dominant players. Its nicely aromatic & very hop forward, cool.

The flavor is hop forward with a low to medium level of bitterness. The fruity hop character is really nice as is the light clean & crisp maltiness. The beer is basically pretty dry, & the finish is quick.

Pretty darn good.

Wonderful aroma of floral hops, and a hint of dried fruit. Pale straw colored with lasting thick white well laced head. Light bodied with a dry feel and a floral hops taste. With a slightly chalky hops finish.
