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.

Bottle. No date on the bottle but fresh on the shelf this week and tastes fresher than I remember having it previously. And as always, freshness is a big deal with these session IPAs. Pours very light and clear, looks like a lager. Getting big punchy hops up front with light malt. Not harsh, bitter, or overly thin. I don’t love this style but I do enjoy both hops and afternoon beers so I keep coming back. This one does the job when it’s fresh like this.

Being English and heavily into the growing craft scene many foreign beers are compared with our national counterparts. This one has a doppelganger. It looks, smells, tastes and resembles Kernel Pale Ales. Very light lemon in colour with clean white head that dissapates rapidly (unlike Kernel). Citrus led aroma, with lemon and some grapefruit. Spicy pangs and some florals. Fresh and inviting if a little one-paced. Taste is more citrus and spicy, floral bitterness. Malt makes a cameo appearance in biscuit form. Light palate but does not faill into the oft-seen trap of becoming watery.

Poured into a shaker. Light gold color with a small white head. Aroma is very hop forward with lots of floral and citrus character. Flavor starts with some light biscuity malt and transitions into floral and citrusy hop notes. Nicely hopped and very fresh tasting. Medium-light body with crisp carbonation. Awesome for a lighter session IPA.

DrunkSanta410 (247) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Pours a pale yellow, with light white head. The color of a bud or Coors light. Aroma is hoppy, light citrus notes and pine notes. Taste is grapefruit peel, citrus. Juicy body, with a somewhat dry and bitter finish. Light malts. Pretty good session beer!

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2014
It took me three different bottle openers to get the beer out of this, so it had better be good! (Harumph!) It (eventually) pours a pale yellow body, moderately bubbly, with a modest white head. There’s little trace of malt in the aroma and the hops come across in a zesty, citric, and (alas) cat box fashion. The flavor has a mild cereal and bread malt backbone with hop tastes reflective of the nose. There’s only a mild bitterness to it. The finish is a bit watery with a light lemon bitterness. Just okay.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein strohgelbes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch intensiv hopfig, grasig, tropische Früchte. Geschmack sehr fruchtig hopfig, bitter, grasig, tropische Früchte, leicht, süffig.

jmohno (1059) - Iowa, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Pilsnery light gold. Good foamy head but disapates shortly with lace. Good aroma with stone fruit,citrus, maybe some sweet malts. Good taste kinda hoppy floral,citrus,,toast malts, grassy finish, citrus finish. Cleanish but not boring, has a classic Lagunitas taste in a lighter beer.

Kinz (3274) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Poured a light gold, good head. Aroma is floral and citric hops. Flavor is light crackery malts followed by more floral and undefined citrus hops. Finishes a touch earthy. Sort of an American Bitter in my book. Nice.

olio (6106) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2014
355 ml bottle. No freshness info.
Pours clear pale golden color with large white head. Very nice floral hoppy aroma, pine needles, some gooseberry bush and lemony fruits. Lemony fruits on the flavor, a bit oily feel to it, resinous hops on the aftertaste. Very tasty and feels quite fresh.
