Sample at the tasting room. This beer pours a clear dark golden color with a medium foamy white head that burns away slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of citrus, hops and pale malt. The finish is crisp with a grapefruit and hops aftertaste. Solid session IPA all around.

Light amber color out of the growler that my mom picked up from the brewery, with a sticky, egg shell head. Really big, fresh hoppy nose with ruby red grapefruit, kiwi, honey and other tropical fruits. Iím surprised at the ABV as this drinks like a much bigger beer. Lightish body but with lots of sparkling hops flavors. Grapefruit Jolly Rancher, apricot jelly, peach and pineapple notes. There is a long, comforting hop burn in the finish and some alcohol notes. Boy this feels bigger than 4.9%. I almost never get to Wooster, but my mom works there. I am looking forward to more growlers of their other beers in the future.
