COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our session IPA is copper in color with just enough malt sweetness and body to provide balance to a beer with bold hop flavor and aroma achieved by big charges of Mosaic hops in the brew house. This beer was dry hopped with a blend of Cascade, Amarillo, Centennial, and Citra.

12oz bottle. Slightly hazy golden color with one finger white head. Citrus aroma. Lighter citrus taste, but very good for a session IPA.

12oz bottle, from Dutch’s. Enjoyed just after the 5.7% Single-Wide IPA. Best by date reads 5/07/15. Orange golden color, mildly hazy with lots of fine particles in the body... I didn’t notice that in the regular IPA. Thin off-white head, leaving decent bits of lace. Much like the regular IPA, though, a lot of white bready malt, some grassy hop, mild citrus and mild spiciness. Mild bite. Seeing the tea notes that reggiedunlop mentioned. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet taste. Medium body, lightly slick. Kind of soft, light to moderate strength carbonation. Alright, but below-average for the style. I much preferred the balance of the Single-Wide. Seemed easier to drink, too.

Lightly hazy golden-orange colored body, medium sized airy white head, spotty lacing, Floral notes dominate followed by mixed citrus and pineapple and mild cracker. Medium to light bodied with moderate to soft carbonation, mild bitterness, semi-dry throughout.

Mostly clear gold draft at Good Dog. Some foamy head and lace. Body feels modestly full of rich hop flavors. Blonde malts. Reasonably balanced.

Aroma is very citrusy hops in a great way. Pours from tap into a pint glass a golden yellow color with a thick finger of head. Taste is a very fruity hop flavor with a tiny malt background. Really delicious and drinkable. Mouth feel is thin and moderate carbonation.

reggiedunlop (3340) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Pours a clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma has light juicy citrus...orange, grapefruit, pineapple. Flavor follows suit...fairly juicy...mild bitterness and a bit of hay. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a dry citrus/tea finish.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2014
This pours a yellow body filled with zillions of bubbles supporting a rocky white head. It’s got a very light aroma, sweet grain and some lemon. It tastes of a honey loaf sweetness along with some lemon and a bit of zest. No appreciable amount of bitterness (to a hop-head) ever really emerges. I realize that the goal is to create a sessionable brew, and the moderate ABV provides that; but what is prohibiting "Session IPA" brewers from adding more bittering hops?

This actually surprised me. Love the mix of hops used, but the Citra really stands out to me. A pretty full-flavored sessions IPA IMHO.

Bottle at Twisted Brew. Cloudy good color with a huge foamy white head. Great sweet, citrus hop aroma. Nice flavor with some oranges and then light, lingering bitterness. Nice for a session.

Bottle. Yellow pour with white head. Herbal, grassy, citrus hop aromas. Grassy and herbal flavors, no citrus to speak off.
