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.

Does it always have to be big? I don’t know. Probably not... but when I drink this one I can’t help but feel like there’s something missing. The aroma is full and floral and on the palate you do get a nice blast of bitterness, but there just isn’t much there behind it. Okay but I can’t see desiring it strongly.

Does his skin fall off or something? I don’t want to replace the bedding. Just get him out. .. Gold amber .. Medium foam in your jacket .. . Hops: for your session pleasure .. . 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.

Thin yellow pour, scant head. Pine and grapefruit in the nose. Bitter. Middle is soft grain. Bitter, medium finish. Good work.

jefcon (1327) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2014
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.

lb4lb (2224) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2014
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.

12 oz bottle. Pours pilsner gold with a thick airy head. Pine, citrus, grass aroma. Very light mouthfeel. Mild bitterness, lemon. Soapy.

Lothore (455) - California, USA - APR 18, 2014
A- Pours a light yellow hue with a small head that fades quickly with some lacing. S- Citrus, bready. T- Floral, citrusey hops all the way through with a lingering hop bitterness. M- Medium bodied and effervescent. D- Amazingly drinkable. I will keep this in the normal rotation as a session beer.

rlgk (9492) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2014
Bottle at the hotel room in San Diego. Clear pale golden beer with a decent airy white head. Hoppy pine apple aroma, mango, grassy, citrus, floral, caramel, hay notes, some passion fruit. Hoppy floral flavor, pine apples, mango notes, grapes, some hay. Rather thin bodied, but apart from that it’s really nice.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2014
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.

fidelis83 (1831) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 5, 2014
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.
