COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes you want a beer, then you realize how much crap you need to do before you call it a day. This is it. Nicely dosed with Big, Round Hop Flavors and a Toasty Malt Foundation to satisfy your every need. But it still lets you stay in the game to do what needs to be done. Yup.

12 oz Wow... Very strong and hoppy aroma with herbal, floral and weedy elements. Has the power of a double IPA. The flavor packs plenty of hops but is, of course, not as intense as the aroma suggests...not as bitter, having only a mild bitterness. Also a bit more fruity. O: extraordinary version of a session ipa, with plenty of flavor and a remarkably full and strong aroma. Best of this specific style (so far). Would earn a higher rating but for my preference for a fruitier hop mix.

Ferris (2041) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2014
Draft - Grassy, lemon hops with a light sweetness. Pale gold with a rich white head. Fresh leafy hops, citrus and grass again. Refreshing and light, very nice.

Fantomasus (200) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Pours a pale straw with a head that gets flimsy pretty fast. Aroma is pleasant (maybe my favorite feature): hay, hops are floral/herbs, some cheese. Taste is weighted towards sour and bitter. Palate is really watery and thin but refreshing. It’s a good beer. Highly drinkable but not worthy of some of the 4.0+ ratings I read.

Wow!! Another amazing IPA by Lagunitas. Excellent hoppy resinous aroma. Taste is so so crisp and clean and smooth with lots of carbonation and no bitterness. So easy to drink. Very happy flavor with a bit of malt to even things out. Clear yellow color.

The gold standard for session IPAs. Rich hoppy nose - I actually preferred the nose to Lagunitas Sucks’, tasted on the same evening - with a balanced hop flavor. Best of all is the ABV - enjoy a 6-pack while watching the game and you’ll have a way better time than your Bud Light buddies (though they might feel better the next morning).

trujahwarrior (480) - Monroe, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2014
12oz bottle poured into my ipa glass. Pours a clear straw yellow color with a medium whit head that leaves light lacing. Smells of pine, citrus and resin. Tastes of the same things in the smell with a good hop presence. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Great flavor for a session ipa on the same level as All day ipa from Founders but with more of a west coast infuence. Great beer.

A golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is big on citrus, some pine, and yeast. The flavor is lemon and pine with a little funk in the finish.

ellolovey (428) - Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color with a foamy white head. Some lacing. Aroma of citrus rinds, hint of pine, and lemongrass. Very crisp and refreshing. The perfect session ale! Taste of lemon and orange zest, pine, grass, and some wheat. Not a fan of pale ales, but I am loving this!

Butters (3686) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Clear yellow pour with fair white ring of head. Very nice and sessionable apa. All the Big "C" hops are there. Pretty much a classic or the style. Big citrus and foresty hops. Bitterness with bite, but not really overpowering at all. A very solid APA.
