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.

32 ounce growler. Thanks Luis! Pours a somewhat cloudy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is citrus, floral, sweet malt, and pine. Easy to drink. Nice Session IPA.

Marheb (1970) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
Des massives notes de pêches et de fruits très mûr avec une amertume dissipée qui laisse les sucres bien en place. Pas très complexe mais se boit comme un jus.

Not a fan of this one. Golden color with nice foam. Overpowering grassy and hay flavors spoil the palate and finish.

From a phone note. Some point on my spring training baseball trip to Tampa: cloudy orange pour. bread, citrus, pine aroma. tastes floral, mint, easy drinking, resin. 7.2

1 litre growler poured a hazy gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of bread, earthiness, light grapefruit and light pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness and light pine with a smooth dry bitter lingering earthy finish.

dinkle50 (943) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Pale golden pour with a barely there head. Biting mouthfeel that was a little harsh. Taste is very grassy and green. Lots of earth. A long bitter finish that is super dry ends this one. Way too carbonated for my liking.

Draft at Proof. Clear light golden pour with a bubbly white head. Citrus, cat pee and onion hops in the aroma. Similar flavor with a super light body and zestiness. Totally crushable and tasty.

mverity (263) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Pours a straw color with some white head that faded quickly into a thin collar. Good lacing though. Aroma is watery caramel, floral and earthy hops. Taste is about the same. Definitely thinner than most session IPAs. Low-medium carbonation and very light body.

PhillyCraft (3148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2014 Growler shared with Alan, pours clearish copper with thin white head, sporadic lacing. Aromas of toasted malt, marshmallow, and hops. Taste is the same, very malty and too sweet. Not that crushable. Tried again in philly, more grapefruit and tangerine.

Growler thanks to Randall! Pours a clear golden orange with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of earthy citrus with backing notes of cake batter and sweet grains. Flavor has a strong malt profile with a bit of a cake batter note with and earthy but sweet citrus finish.
