I had two pints of this yesterday for lunch. It wasn't advertised by the waiter as a session IPA, so I thought it was a regular strength offering. I too found the taste to be quite different. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but about half-way through the first pint I started enjoying it more and ordered the second one.
Interestingly I did not notice the thinness others have spoken about. But I wasn't out to evaluate a beer, just to enjoy one with lunch and a good conversation, so my focus was divided.
My favorite session IPA currently is Fort George's Suicide Squeeze (only available in cans & kegs as far as I know). It does have a fairly thin body but the hop flavor and aroma make up for it. It is very refreshing I think.
