Why are you breathing on me?! .. . Easy and giddy to drink to drink to drink .. . A great example of this rising style .. . . Now, if you will excuse me, I have to not speak to you people any longer. Thank you.

Solid IPA -- there is so much flavor in it. Puts other session beers to shame with fully-formed hop flavors of grass, lemon, apricot and pine. Nice backing malts, not sweet and not dry, with a dusky day’s-work-done malt backbone.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden with white frothy head. Smell is grapefruit citrus hops. Taste is dry and quite hoppy flavored without huge bitterness or a syrupy sweet backbone. Like a hop tea. A bit earthy. Very easy drinking and flavorful. Perfect full body and very crisp carbonation. Good stuff.

Hoppy floral flavor, pine apples, mango notes, grapes, some hay. Rather thin bodied, but apart from that it’s really nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pale yellow, with a thin, quickly fading head. A very floral aroma, with some citrus notes. Feels light bodied, with an almost pilsner quality. I’m not sure what a Fractional IPA is, though.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy greenish pale gold with a 1 finger, soapy to creamy off white head. Aroma is big on citrus hops, some light cereal and toasty malt, hints of tropical fruit, floral and grassy hops. Flavor is toasty Pale malt, light bready notes, a hint of berry fruit, acidic citrus hoppy twang and a little grassiness to the finish. Light body, spritzy carbonation, thin, slightly oily, but acidic feel. Good stuff overall, great aroma, but it sort of goes downhill from there.
