On tap at Kuhnhenn Brewpub. Straw yellow with a medium white crown. Aroma of pine, woodsy hops, pale malt and some floral notes. Taste is very mild with light floral hops, mild citrus and a pale malt backer. Prickly and gritty with mild bitterness. Iíll skip the fluffer and go right to the real thing.

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.

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.
