COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This poundable session IPA is brewed with 2-row barley and a touch of caramel malt for depth, accented with loads and loads of late-addition Citra hops. The hops provide an IPA-sized dose of intensely fruity hop aroma without an overly bitter finish.

Growler from Eric - thanks! Bold orange pour with a soapy white head. Really nice juicy citrus elements, some pine, just a touch dank. This is quite good!

Draft at Churchkey during DC Craft Beer Week. Thanks to solidfunk. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma was some light citrus notes, touch of pine, armpit? Flavor was light pine, armpit sweat, not my favorite, but easy to drink.

Growler from the brewery. Pours clear amber color with white head. Citrus hop and caramel aromas. Grapefruit and pine flavors with a hint of grass and maltiness. Medium body with average carbonation. Decent.

glennmastrange (2311) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Tap. Moderate malt aromas of roasted and caramel, harsh hops of pine and turpentine, moderate soap for the yeast, with slovent, medicine and faint dried fruit in the background. Head is small, creamy, white with good slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear medium amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a tart finish. This Session IPA is just a little hampered by the harsh hop profile.

Golden in color with good head retention. Noise is citrus and sweet. Citra hops linger on the back of the tongue.

On tap at the Buddha. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Citrusy hop aromas. Light and crisp with citrus and grapefruit hop notes. Good body with nice malt backbone. Good mouthfeel and body. Nice.
