Aroma is fresh cut grass, super fresh pine, light grapefruit. Mouthfeel is super sessionable and refreshing with notes of pine, dank herb, and grapefruit.

64oz fresh growler sent to GT2 via Unclerudy. Thanks guys! Pours clear, light yellow. Aroma is delicate and floral, clearly dry hopped to death with tropical hops. Summer garden, orange blossom, mango, womens’ perfume, gardenia blossom. Taste is pineapple juice, orange juice, papaya, vanilla, balancing herbal hops. Palate is light, easy to drink. Could drink a bucket if it wouldn’t make my ass huge, but then the abv is low enough that I CAN drink a bucket! Win.

Growler mega fresh thanks to Unclerudy for Growler Swap of Doom. Pours with some serious rocky white head. Holy cow. Massive retention. Brilliant clear light gold SRM. Nose is really insane the amount of papaya, starfruit, vanilla, light butterscotch. One of the best hoppy noses I’ve experienced. Taste is very light, mildy soapy, with some light herbal hops and sweet yellow fruits- papaya, mango, kumquat. Really tropical overall and immensely refreshing. Loved this one. No stickiness, no nuttiness, no specialty malts, no syrup, no candy, no tea, no husky tannins. Boss.

This one poured a straw yellor color with a white head. Aroma was of light fruit and light grass, with some grain in there as well. Flavor was similar, mild hops, but flavorful, and completely clean with no sweetness getting in the way at all. Much like All Day IPA but cleaner and more refreshing.

One of the best "session" ipas. Herbal, but citrusy, definitely composed in the west coast manner. Oh so drinkable.

Cask at Rattle&Hum, NYC. Pale golden beer with almost no head. Lovely pine apple aroma, peach, pear, some plum, citrus, floral, herbal, hay, lemongrass, citrus, pine, balanced hops, hay, some spicy notes, lemon and some perfume. Hoppy grassy flavor, citrus, grapes, peach, pear, mango, pine needles, hay, perfume notes, lovely bitterness all the way to the end. A little thin, but the aroma and flavor so makes up for that. Wonderful!

Low abv IPA, not what I would ordinarily look for but surprisingly satisfying. Lots of citrus (orange dominance) followed by a lemon finish.

On tap at the brewery. The best one I had that day. Really good IPA. Very drinkable while still being packed full of hops and flavor.

Draught from Blind Tiger NYC. Looked hand pump pulled but it wasn’t. Bright golden clear yellow...classic IPA look but no head or lace. Aroma was a hop lovers dream of fresh flowers and tropical sweet and citrus fruits. Flavor was classic sweet grapefruit, some fresh pine, nice crisp malts. Body was very light and fresh. Went down easy. Why can’t there be more IPAs like this. Very sessionable.
