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.

Transfer from BA review on 5-12-14- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden yellow color with a one finger head of white foam. Tons of carbonation bubbles can be seen streaming up through the brew. The head fades over a moderate amount of time leaving a fantastic level of foamy rings of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – For a session IPA, the aroma of the beer surprisingly heavy on the grapefruit hop smell. Along with the more bitter grapefruit are some other aromas of a tangerine and mango sweetness with a little bit of a grassy and cracker aroma as well Overall the aroma is rather nice. Taste – The taste begins with a smooth bready flavor mixed with a little bit of a grapefruit hop taste. As the taste advances the breadiness remains as a base for the brew, with it being joined later on by a little bit of a grainy taste toward the end. All the while the little bit of orange and caramel flavor that are present upfront seem to intensify in nature as the flavor moves on to the end. Later on in the taste, as the grapefruit hop increases a bit in intensity, other flavors of a lemongrass and a light floral hop taste come to the tongue. With these new found hop flavors and the nice increase in the sweeter and malty flavors of the brew, a very smooth, yet moderately hopped and enjoyable flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – For an only 4.6 % abv brew, the body of the beer is on the thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. While normally a lighter body and very high carbonation would be better for the session style, for amplifying the malt and the hop the slightly thicker (at least for a 4.6 % abv.) and lower carbonation do the brew nicely and really make this a nice session IPA. Overall – This is so far the best session IPA that I have had. Unlike most session IPA, it has a degree of balance due to a more malty and sweet presence and doesn’t taste like I am drinking hops mixed with water. This was very enjoyable session IPA and one I would certainly recommend.

CanIHave4Beers (3321) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours attractively enough, very pale with a big white head and lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is fruity with melon and grapefruit being the dominant players. It’s nicely aromatic & very hop forward, cool.

The flavor is hop forward with a low to medium level of bitterness. The fruity hop character is really nice as is the light clean & crisp maltiness. The beer is basically pretty dry, & the finish is quick.

Pretty darn good.

Luvystypotables (696) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Wonderful aroma of floral hops, and a hint of dried fruit. Pale straw colored with lasting thick white well laced head. Light bodied with a dry feel and a floral hops taste. With a slightly chalky hops finish.

Appearance: pours with a very big off white head, the beer is very clear slightly light gold color, head settles into a nice density and lasts Aroma: grass, pine, citrus, spice, smells good Taste: lightly toasted malt, pretty bitter, has nice hop flavors besides the bitterness like pine and grass Palate: average carbonation, bitter aftertaste, light mouthfeel Overall: this beer doesn’t dissapoint, very nice hop flavors and lots of bitterness yet with a low abv, another good example of my favorite style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - Pours a clear, light yellow with a fairly big head. Big, juicy aromas of citrus and pine. Great initial mouth feel. Aromas continue,but lightly. Very refreshing and session-able, one of the best session IPAs around.

12oz bottle. Pours a sparkling light golden color with generous foamy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is dank with hoppy notes of tropical fruit. Hoppy and tropical flavors in this. Light bodied with a bitter finish. More interesting than most session IPAs out there.
