j12601 (6927) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle at the Dad Pad. Pours a hazed gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Big musky citrus. Medium bodied, musky citrus, soft musk and funky yeast. Tart citrus, long musky citrus. Quite tasty.

Maddog (403) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle from The Warren Store or Hunger Mountain Co-op. A great session IPA, probably the best yet. The pour is cloudy yellow and the aroma is dank hops. Pretty straight forward flavors of citrus hops. Thinnish body as expected from a session. Good beer, good memories of a wonderful Vermont trip.

jredmond (5673) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle from the market release. Pours a bright hazy yellow with thick white lacing. Aroma is strong lemon funk, dank hop and tropical fruits. Really nice lemony nose. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with the lemon fruit flavor dominating; additional notes of melon, dank hop, fresh lemongrass and citra. A really nice session IPA.

PhillyCraft (3455) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2014 Bottle from release, pours piss yellow with light head if any. We’ll carbonated and thin in body. Aroma is scallion, cheese, mango, tang, sulfur, pineapple, grass, and some more funk. Flavor is most of the same. I’m finding it hard to believe this is only citra, seems like some other very dank hops are in here. If not, the citra crop this year is ultra, ultra, skunky. It’s ok, nowhere near as good as the #2 on cask or spring fever a couple years back.

Pretty sure this is the Citra version. 22 oz bomber from the Warren store into a belcher pint. Pours a hazy light amber/almost adjunct yellow body with a finger of soapy white foam. Nose is huge tropical fruits, light dankness and some biscuits. Definitely citra. Taste is tropical fruits and clean crackery malts. A blast of flavor before being washed away completely leaving behind only a light bitterness. Unbelievably drinkable and one of the best session IPA’s I’ve had, which is impressive considering the amount of session beers that are getting churned out nowadays. It’s so drinkable, it’s a shame it’s so limited.

Fantastic Session IPA. All hop flavor and aroma upfront with little to no drawbacks being a Session IPA. Wave after wave of hop flavor with resinous stickyness and oily hop feeling on the tongue. Just a tad bit dry on the aftertaste but very hard to complain about in this type of beer.
