This IPA is good but and has a good hint of malt along side of three hops. It may not be my favorite IPA but I could really drink it all day long.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lively, clear amber beer with very little head. Floral, grassy aroma. The flavour is quite dry with a light hop taste and a twist of bitter grapefruit. As you get through it the malt starts to come through more and more but the finish is crisp and bitter. Unspectacular but I can see why it’s labelled a session ale.

35,5cl bottle from Meny, Ringnes park. Pours clear, deep golden with a white head. Hoppy aroma with citrus, pine, malt and hints of tropical fruits and honey. Moderate to medium sweet with nice fruity and hoppy flavours and a fairly dry and bitter finish. Nice, refreshing and certainly sessionable.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Hotel glass
From: Whole Foods in Tempe, Ariz.
Purchased: May 15, 2014
Consumed: May 15, 2014
Misc.: Bottled March 21, 2014
Poured a golden, pale, clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head that dissipated in a short while. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Below average foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Minimal-to-below average retention.
Smelled sharp grapefruit, citrus hops, grapefruit rind, floral hops, tropical hops, bitter spices and tangerine. Yummy.
Tasted not quite as potent as the smell. Got sharp grapefruit, grapefruit juice, grapefruit rind and grapefruit with sugar. Grapefruit I tell you! Also floral hops, citrus hops, tropical notes and orange rind.
Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Refreshing, slightly bitter finish.
Arguably the best session IPA I’ve ever had (know that there are probably five). Really good.

Pours slightly hazy light copper color with white head. Aroma is grassy, pineapple and citrus. Light malt start with tropical fruit and pineapple flavors. Finish is light citrus and crisp. No lingering hop bitterness. Really good flavor. Could definately drink this one all day long.
