COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Truth is, everyone has a birthday. And when you want to celebrate, this Session IPA is a gift to the senses. Made with 6 different hops, this bold brew is refreshing enough to enjoy again and again. Now, make a wish and blow out the candles. But don’t tell anyone, or your wish won’t come true

One of the best beers that I have had. Not as complex as Dogfish Head IPA, but more complete than most other sessions.

Pours clear golden-ish orange with a modest white bubbly head which soon recedes. Aroma is orange, tropical fruits, slight caramel. Taste is orange sweet, mango sweet, highly bitter, grassy and slight pine notes.

IslandHaole (1228) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Medium golden color with an off-white head, good lacing. Nice aroma, fruity hops and caramel. Lots of malt up front, sweet stone fruit, soft, juicy plums with pine resin, clean finish. Now this is a good session brew, I could drink copious quantities of this.

AdolfoCC (146) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - JUN 6, 2016
Servida en un Spiegelau IPA. APARIENCIA: de color ámbar con algunos destellos naranjas, se observa cristalina con una moderada a alta actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color blanco de mediana retención, de burbujas compactas. AROMA: los lúpulos de carácter herbal predominan totalmente, notas de pino, resina, dankness, algo condimentado como ajo/cebolla, se alcanza a percibir algunas notas frutales como mango, piña y dulzor de las maltas pero queda totalmente opacado por la intensidad del carácter herbal de los lúpulos. SABOR: desde el instante que el líquido toca la boca se siente un amargor medio alto, seguido del carácter herbal de los lúpulos que predomina, notas de pino, resina, dankness, ajo/cebolla es lo que destaca, atrás de ello muy ligeras notas frutales y dulzor de maltas totalmente opacado por lo anterior; en el retrogusto queda un amargor medio alto seco pegado al paladar. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero más cargado hacia lo ligero, ligera sensación oleosa y carbonatación media. RESUMEN: excelente IPA, lúpulo líquido.

Excellent. Real hoppy flavor and a real nice aroma. One of the better hoppy beers i’ve had in awhile.

rondphoto (3839) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 4, 2016
bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Aroma of citrus hops and a little malt. Nearly clear medium golden amber color, frothy white two-finger head, strips of lace. Taste is malt followed by citrus hops and medium carbonation. Unpretentious, falls easily down my throat, balanced, and really good. I will buy this one

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2016 Draft to taster at cappy?s pour avg gold with thin white head. Nose cat pee, fresh cut grass, resin. Taste resinous up front, tropical fruit, light grass. Moderate bitter finish. Nice nose, then the flavoring hop doesn?t match.

Arayaga2 (2099) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Violet’s first taste! Golden color with a thick white head. Sweet tangerine aroma is pretty great. You get some of that in taste, but more pithy than anything else. $3/12oz

BlackHaddock (6038) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2016
12oz bottle in the Californian sunshine on 1st June 2016 outside our holiday cabin at Big Bear Lake. Amber and hoppy! A decent blend of flavours with the hops leading in both the nose and taste stakes, piney with a malty base, liked it.
