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

Bottle from Elizabeth Station, Bellingham; 5.25% ABV, bb 20 Apr 2016
Hazy golden to amber color, medium sized head. The aroma balances three hop components, the fruity, the resiny and the dunk. The mouthfeel is dry but not weak; nice malt profile, a bit of cereals and bread, maybe a touch of rye, before the strong bitterness; the hop flavor is mainly resiny, with some bitter orange peel.
Very well made.

clear amber color; nice citrusy hop aroma; citrusy, grassy hop flavor; very light malt base; really nice hop profile, but I would have preferred a little more body and malt to balance it out ( I know it’s a session beer)

Golden colour with thin head. Aroma and flavour are certainly in the category of earthy, resinous, piney hop.

Aroma resin, spruce, citrus, Appearance orange, clear, minimal head, white foam, Taste medium bitterness, light sweetness, Palate medium body, sticky, soft carbonation, bitter, Overall a medium bitter beer, but that bitterness lingers for a while. This one is right on the line in the bitterness department. I would not suggest this beer to a friend.

On tap at Novare Res. Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of grassy oranges with some light sugary cereals in the back. Taste is moderately bitter and piny slash fruity. Moderate body and carbonation. Does not feel like a session IPA by any mean but I wasn’t looking for that especially anyway. Just a really nice hop fix!

Draught at Watering Hole. Great stuff, nicely smooth and balanced with a complex citrus hop bouquet, biscuit malt, bready mouthfeel, dry finish. That must be simply amazing drank at the source, yummy!

Keg @ Bishops Arms Hornsgatan. Almost clear golden, white lacing head. Hoppy fruity aroma with citrus zest and pine. Smooth mid-dry mouthfeel. Hoppy taste, peach, orange, citrus zest, grapefruit, black tea and pine. Chalky dry finish with lingering bitterness.

Beautiful hoppy aroma. The bitterness and carbonation tickle every tastebud and finish crisply. The hoppiness hangs on the palate for a while but it does so mildly. This is a really good ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear copper with light head. Nose is pine, tropical fruit and grass. Grass is dominant in the flavour and there’s also some citrus. An excellent beer and average IPA.

On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Fresh and hoppy smell with citrus and tea. Similar taste, light bready body. Easy to drink. Nice.
