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

teorn88 (6194) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2016
12oz bottle from Beer Gonzo. It pours a clean golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is medium sweet resist and piney with notes of grass, dried leaves and pine cones. Taste has a little mellow fruity sweetness with a note prominent bitter resinous feel. Leafy and earthy, piney hops. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, decent. These beers don’t travel week across the pond

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

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 (153) - 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.
