Bottle. I have to say, I really love "session" IPAs. Golden in color with a nice head. Hoppy, citrus, spruce aroma. Taste is a mild citrus and spruce. Not a blow your taste buds away IPA just a perfect tasting one.

Straw pour, white head. Aroma is floral, citrus, and yeast. Flavor is very grassy and floral with pale malt backbone. A bit thin. Disappointing.

pours unclear pale yellow with a small white cap, reviving and leaving some lacing. spicy and crackery pils maltiness, floral citrus, subtle nz-like hops, light fruitiness - pears and white grapes; some peach candies, catpee, leafy herbal tea - touch of soil/dirt. light carbonation, light body - slightly watery; balanced spicy-citrusy finish. nz/american/english session ipa. very nice!

ben4321 (5902) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2015
Location: Draft at Blind Tiger, 3/15/2015

Aroma: Lighter aroma, some grapefruit/tropical hops, resiny notes, and a little onion
Appearance: It is clear gold in color, with a white head and some solid lace
Flavor: This one has a pretty good hop profile, leaning bitter, and just lightly sweet
Palate: It is light bodied and easy drinking, with a soft feel, and a clean, dry finish
Overall Impression: Pretty solid Session IPA, but not one of the better ones in the style. Drinkable beer overall though. You could certainly do worse than to take down a few of these in a session.

Gachupines (1252) - USA - APR 13, 2015
Clear golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is very slight hops. Flavor is light with some crisp bitter hops. Clean finish, perhaps a bit too light, even for a session IPA. Wife: 3.3

Draught @ Albion. Very pale yellow with small creamy white head, piney hops aroma, low carbonation, thin body, strong hops taste, abrupt finish with little hops aftertaste. A nice anniversary brew!

The closest to a 3.2 beer I have, as befits National Beer Day. 12 oz. bottle sent for review. Had this maybe 2 months, and the "Enjoy by" date is May18, but theres still a nice nose of hops as I open the cap and hear the inviting "pssssht!". Pour is very light, like a "regular" Pale lager, except for a haze from visible particles of hops floating around. Aroma is strong on those catbox" hops I actually like; Amarillo, Simcoe, etc., or so I think. Taste is full of the same kind of hops I caught in the nose, intensely bitter and resiny. Yet fun for hop heads anywhere. Light malts, of course, and a bit gassy. Almost as if someone snuck into a megabrewery and dumped some actual flavor into the kettle. Then I find some notes of black peppercorn as I near the bottom of the glass. I might personally like more malt backbone, but that would take it out of the "sessionable" category. Dry finishes wraps up the bottle. Definitely something you could have several servings of in a night, and just might want to.

For a low malt session IPA, its pretty good. The aroma is sort of faint, but if you let it warm a bit the notes are of lemon, slightly earthy, and some indistinguishable citrus fruitiness. The flavors are nice and hop forward. The malt profile is almost nonexistent and really not whats on show here. The hop flavors are earthy and fruity--it has a very pure, simple flavor. You know what I mean? Finish is not bitter but refreshing. Overall, its a fall asleep in the sun in your backyard kind of brew.
