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.

On tap at brewery. Nose is straight up danky. String citra and beyond type of hop. Refreshingly light palate, minimal sweetness. This is a great pale ale. Probably two to three times as much hops as a pale ale from a year ago. Definitely over the top and double yummy. ---Rated via intercellular device

Poured a light gold color with aromas of pine, malt and citrus. Flavors match the aromas clean and refreshing. Highly crushable, dare I say dangerously delicious?

BBB63 (6154) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Great carbonation in this growler (almost too good), moderately juicy and lightly dank bitters, very dry finish which actually makes it a bit less sessionable. Overall a good lower’d ABV hoppy beer but there are better versions out there.

Pours light gold and crystal clear with a thick white head. Aroma is sweet mango-tropical fruit. Taste is easy mango-like tropical hops with a tinge of red grapefruit - that’s the beginning. A mild grainy malt kicks in for the mid followed by an easy bitter finish. A session ale to be appreciated.

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!

4oz pour at Churchkey DC pours a hazy gold with some sudsy, white head. Nose is nice and grassy, chivey notes, mild malt, mild pine. Flavor is solid, malty, chivey, grassy, mild onion patch, mild soap, a little lemon tea. Clean, soft finish.

A very nice session IPA. Light pine and grapefruit. Pours cloudy golden with good head and lacing. Great backyard beer I could drink all day. Some bitter finish. Tap at Churchkey.

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.
