This is my idea of a Light IPA - 5% abv! Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a copper glow and a ridiculously large six centimetre tall pure white, soapy head. Aroma of grass, soap, yeast, light bread and quite a bit of tropical fruit sweetness. Light to Medium-bodied; Mellow malts up front, but a large soap presence along with a bunch of grassy and herbal hops coupled with a faint sweetness and some light yeast complexities on the tail end. Aftertaste is nice and rounded, but a good balance and nice kick compared to other beers in the style. Overall, this is a nice IPA and bridges the gap of Light IPA and normal IPA, but this is a good average drinking beer if you want a bit more hops. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in New York (Columbus Circle), New York on 27-November-2015 for US$5,99 sampled at home in Washington on 14-April-2016.

Tropical citrus aroma in a hazy light gold pour. Restrained hop forward balance with light fruity body and a pithy finish. Pretty much as it says on the package.

Draft at Tanner Smiths in Midtown, 11/13/15. It pours a rather hazy orange color. Aroma and flavor have some fruity hops and some pale and toasted malt notes. Not watery and easy drinking at a lowish ABV. Solid overall. I enjoyed it.

Interesting low abv ipa with intense hop aroma. High carbonation with low foam and golden color. Worth trying

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2015 16 oz bottle from Beer Table Pantry. Hazy yellow amber, not much head. Pine hop boiled sweet aroma. Lime biscuit flavour. Bitter citrus aftertaste. Quite blunt and dry.

Very smooth tropical fruit aroma and taste - hardly know it is a session beer as it goes down as there is none of the slight wateriness you get with most sessions. Great IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Purportedly a session, though doubtfully possible. Hobby bitter, refreshing, froathy, fruity citrus notes

Bierleichen, Queens tap: pours orange with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruit. Taste is fruity and not too hoppy but with enough. Not too blatantly a session ipa either. Light sweetness and slightly dry at the finish. It ok.
