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.

Bottle, pours a nice golden amber, first sip was expecting something else but this session ale settles well and leaves a nice aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (9016) - 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 (783) - 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.

Tranquillity (1743) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2016
Canned from LCBO. Clear body, small white head. Weak aroma, bland. Tastes like a European lager! Big bubbles, weak finish.

lesifflebiere (1618) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2016
Blonde, parfaitement limpide et dorée, cercle de mousse blanche en surface. Nez de pamplemousse et de fruits tropicaux variés, le typique pour ce style. C’est une boisson sèche, tranchante, pas si amère pourtant, mais seulement mince et axée sur l’arôme un peu terreux, épicé et agrumé des houblons. Une bonne session, sinon un peu convenue.

Pint can pour. Clear, golden, good carbonation. Light and crisp taste. Underwhelming nose and flavor.

Frothmeister (706) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2016
473ml can. Pours a clear gold with an off-white head. On the nose, resinous hops, caramel malt notes, a strange but not unwelcome note of fresh raspberries, grapefruit, and light peach. Taste wise, caramel malt, apricot, faint almost cherry candy notes, and a light resinous hops that head into watery mineral sided bitterness, with peach and citrus in the finish. It’s solid.

Lots of the advertised sweet orange aromas hit my nose on the pour. The body disappoints looking a little thin and watery. It has a nice light refreshing mouthfeel, that has me checking the can to see if it is even 5% abv, and that sweet orange is back this time on the tongue. Not what I would call a robust IPA, but it is quite refreshing and quaffable on a hot day watching the Blue Jays and Red Sox in a tight game.

AwaKe (211) - Laval, CANADA - MAY 26, 2016
Bu à même la canette. Arômes fruitées et frais. Très parfumé au goût, houblons west coast, agrumes avec un soupçon de malt pâle en fin de bouche. Palais très mince. Définitivement la meilleure session "commerciale" dispo au Québec.

Lubiere (12553) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2016
A golden ipa with a thin lacing off white head . In aroma, nice biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, grapefruit pulp, nice and smooth. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with citrusy floral hops, light mineral notes, light session ipa very nice. On tap at Festibière de Gatineau 2016.
