One of my fav places in SD for beer. This one. Is very hoppy floral in. Nature. The flavor has some mild malts. The hop flavor is mostly flora hops very bitter/smooth character if that makes sense.

Pours a hazy copper orange with two finger head that leaves a few mins after pouring. Smell is of dank piney citrus hops. Taste is piney, citrusy/grapefruit hop blast. The finish is dry and crisp. The mouthfeel is light and dry. Overall the best session ipa I?ve had to date!

Tap. Pours a golden orange, with a thick slightly yellow head. Aroma is tropical hops. Taste is tropical bitterness, and is exceptionally well balanced.

Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael! The beer appears straw yellow and slightly hazy. The head is thick and white, displays lasting retention, and leaves ample lacing on the tulip glass. The aroma...wow. One of the best aromas in a pale ale I have ever experienced. This would give any IPA more than a run for its money. Fresh hops and a blast of varied citrus. The flavor is absolutely phenomenal. This is perhaps the most drinkable and enjoyable <6% beer I have had the pleasure to sample. Perfect? Ya, pretty much. My highest recommendation.

Tap @ Answer. Hazy dark golden with decent head and light lacing. Cat piss, some resin, some pith- nice full aroma. Flavor follows. Tongue scraper.

Thanks! to Abijen. 650 ml. bottle sampled @ ZZT XIII. Lightly hazy golden, little white head. Nose is chockful of lovely onion hops, garlic, pine peel. Taste is rich grass, onion, garlic, dank, rich, light malts. Very nice rich hop oil body. Very nice beer, at 5.25 % you could just as easily call this one an IPA as opposed to a Session IPA but that is marketing. Kids these days with their session fluff.

Bottle from Craft Ale House, and I am absolutely turgid to find this one. Pours relatively clear dark straw with 2-finger off-white head. The head is loud, and sounds like a nymphomaniac opening and closing her labia digitally. Nose is gigantic resin, resin to spare, must be at least 100 plus IBU here, plus pineapple, white pepper. Tastes hoppy, resiny, with a huge IBU load, pineapple, dryness and bitterness throughout, and an overall flavor, nose, and finish that gives hop heads wet dreams. If you are sessioning this, then you better be a goddamned hophead, and you better pack an all day lunch.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2014 Great tropical fruit flavors in this one, sweet melons dominate the palate and the bitterness is very mild for a beer with this much flavor and such a muted malt profile. Really, really good stuff.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2011 A fresh growler provided by Alex, drank from a Cigar City snifter... The body is a bright dark clear gold with a beautiful off-white head. The head rises a few fingers and settles with a nice cap, decent lacing. Crystal colors and contrast, looks great... The aroma is very sharp, at the most basic level its a mixture of catty/dank and sweet amarillo like hops. Other notes of pine and lemon, very good. Its sweet but dank... The taste isn’t as sweet as the nose, more of steady hops throughout, not super bitter though. Light grapefruit on the front. This is an apa that tastes like an ipa but drinks like an apa. Has to be one of the most flavorful drinkable 5% beers out there. The aroma is outstanding, well worth trying.
