COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long days and warm nights awaken the city. The list of neighborhood festivals is endless. As is the great music that brings us together in parks and parking lots. We brewed our Session IPA to be easy drinking and endlessly refreshing, so you can enjoy every encore. Bright note of fresh oranges and other citrus fruit with a mild body that is crisp on the palate.

Admin Note: Although this is similar to Forcone, Goose Island assures me this beer is a different recipe for large scale release in 2014 evolved from that original batch for Pitchfork Music Festival 2013.

Style et résumé: IPA d’été.
Comment: Canette de 473ml.
Portrait: Un liquide dorée pâle avec une mousse blanche. Un nez frais d’agrumes, de quartier d’oranges et de malt blond. Une bouche moyenne fraiche avec des notes d’agrumes et d’herbe. Une texture correcte. Une finale simple mais tout de même efficace pour ce genre de produit.
Note: 6+/10

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2016
Pale straw-golden pour. The aroma is light and zesty. There’s a bit of lemon and orange zest with a touch of zestiness and a bit of light fruit. Light fruit and kiwi. Tropical. Decent.

GlennHendry (288) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2016
Grassy aroma with some citrus. Smooth and light on the tongue. A palate tickler with decent taste but the hops are muted. Enjoyable enough.

kevinsenn (1993) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle. Grassy and slightly fruity aroma. Floral and fruity taste with mild bitterness and clean finish. Sessionable, but not exciting in any way.

355ml bottle at Matt’s. Aroma and taste are hoppy, fruity, slightly sweet, some chemical notes. Meh.

mcberko (14401) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out a very soapy, floral hops, some detergent, and biscuity malt. Flavour is very dull, with soapy floral hops and dry biscuity malt. Very dull, soapy and uninspired. Meh.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
Hazy golden color with small fruity head. Mild aroma of cereals, but also with a pleasant mellow fruity touch. The mouthfeel is very dry, appropriate for the style, the malt has some timid cereal character, it has a reasonable bitterness level, a mild herbaceous touch from the hops, and not much more hop quality. A bit weak in the final.
The aroma is more satisfying than the flavor.
Pleasant drink for a BBQ afternoon.

AirForceHops (6185) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 27, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Slight copper color, weak head retention. Nose is light toasted grain and light hints of pine.

Flavor is ok. Toasted grain/ bready malt backbone. Decent amount of citrus. The body and texture is better than a lot of other “session” IPA’s on the market. Doesn’t come off watery at all. Obviously nothing in the top tier of the style here but it is respectable.

DuffMan (9541) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2016
On tap @ Royal Oak in Ottawa. Clear orange-tinted gold, receding white head. Light orange peel and faint earthy notes, mild bitterness. Not awful, but nothing I’d rush back to.

bunget (844) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2016
Can. Pale yellow body, medium white head with poor retention, no lacing. Pleasant aroma of grass, oranges, acacia honey and some pungent spices, mostly peppercorn. Taste of grassy hops, grapefruit zest, a touch of yeast and some spices. Not bad.
