Perfect Day is a ridiculously delicious, supremely drinkable beer that goes down like a session style pale but packs the hop flavor of a big IPA; which it is. ... El Dorado, Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops give Perfect Day flavors and aromas of citrus and fruits. There is also a distinct aroma and flavor of white grapes that come from the very unique Nelson Sauvin hops. We dry hopped Perfect Day with equal parts El Dorado and Citra for extra hoppy perfection. Last but not least a touch of Rye malt was used to add a subtle complexity and to compliment all of that hop flavor.

Draft sample at their brewpub, pale golden color with white head. Aroma notes of huge grapefruit, citrus and some grass. Taste adds citrus zest, pine and some tropical/dank notes. Light-medium body, moderate-low carbonation, dry, sticky with lingering citrus finish. Very grapefruit strong IPA.

Panzuriel (1558) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2015
On tap at Asheville Pizza and Brewing. Perfect Day is a lighter golden pour with a moderate amount of small white bubbles. The nose is a nice blend of citrus and evergreen hop aromas. The taste is light citrus with some sweet malt presence. Body is medium and lively. Pleasant finish.

Dogbrick (10009) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Sample at the brewpub. Pale golden color with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of tropical fruit, mild hops and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short fruity hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

Had this on tap at Asheville Pizza and Brewing. Yellowish orange in appearance with a medium, white head. The aroma is a fresh citrus, pine, orange peel. This beer has prominent tropical notes, citrus, pine, fruity, light-medium bitterness. All in all, very smooth, refreshing and tasty beer. Very good.

Golden with ample head. Smells floral plus pithy. Taste is actually a little wheaty them lightly hoppy. I usually like them as little bigger.
