COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This West Coast IPA was made to be a session IPA. It is very light gold in col-or with an intensely hopped nose. It has a high citrus hop flavor with a dry crisp aftertaste. If you like the DRIPA and want to last longer, try the Fluffer..

Awesome session IPA. Pours gold with a thin white head. Nice tropical fruit aroma, pineapple and tangerine in front. Great taste, tropical fruit with a little pine in the finish. Nice carbonation, medium body, very refreshing. Great beer.

Itís like a more bitter version of all day ipa. Pretty much the same. Itís really really good, and hoppy off the deep end. Love it

Iíve never been a fan of sessions ipa, usually has no body, just fizz. This holds up through finish. Hop, grapefruit, smooth light beer.

tectactoe (3084) - Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2015
UPDATED: APR 14, 2015 Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Pale straw-yellow in color. Almost like Mottís apple juice with a mild haze. Small, foamy, bright white head fades quickly. Highly citric hop aroma, also with some very faint undertones of tropical fruits as well. Orange rind, peach, grapefruit peel, pineapple, & a hint of mango. Lots of pine, resin, moderate hemp oil, & a touch of floral notes in the periphery. The flavor showcases that raw hop abrasion even more. Heavy notes of pine sap, pine needles, resinous hop oils, & staunch florals make quick work of the palate. Nice level of bitterness. The back-end shows a brighter side once the initial hop bite fades; citrus peel, grass, grapefruit, peach. Wet & slightly weedy finish; crisp body, just a touch oily. Like a mini-DRIPA in a lot of ways. Really tasty stuff.

Super clear straw yellow with just a puddle of white haze on top. Average carbonation, thinner viscosity clean finish. Rich chestnuty malt aroma with a heap of florals. Lots of floral hops and nutty taste, very crisp flavor. Pretty good session. Similar to all day ipa.

Pailhead (5443) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - DEC 15, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of citrus, light lemon, grapefruit, and a hint of pine. Itís a transparent golden-orange with a small white head that leaves some thin webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus with a touch of lemon. The finish has moderate grapefruit and some faint florals. Itís light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Draft at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. Pours orange with a thin white head. Leaves a lot of white lacing. Nice floral notes on the nose. Solid grapefruit notes on the nose. Feels a bit thin on the tongue. Itís a clean finisher. Not as exciting as Iíd hoped.
