Goodgrief (1973) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Golden colored pour, small head. Aroma of citrus. Light citrus fruit, moderate citrus hops. A surprising amount of flavor and sweetness for a session. One of the best sessions, which isn’t a style that normally thrills. Got too sweet and lost its refreshiveness as it warmed, which is my fault for letting sit by the grill. Good beer.

Can: The aroma consists of light-moderate citrus, tropical fruits, light grapefruit, and lemon peel. It pours a slightly hazed golden-orange with a one finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some minimal thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate citrus with a touch of tropical fruit. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit, mild pine, and a touch of lemon peel. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Benzai (12605) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2016
Can shared by Countbeer, train tasting. Lightly hazy pale golden color, small white head. Aroma is malts, superbly hoppy. Taste lightly malts, hops, bitter hops, a slight piney hop touch. Dry finish. A bit thin texture, average carbonation. Decent.

koleminer20 (2115) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 15, 2016
12 oz can shared with ebone1988. The pour is a darker orangey gold with a thin film of white head that had has a nice bit of lace and a thicker collar. The aroma is dank as hell. There is a ton of Amarillo in this. The bitterness, the dankness, everything. There is so much Amarillo and I’m not a fan of this particular hop. The flavor is much of the same. The dank and bitter hops are just all Amarillo. The mouth feel is pretty great. It’s light and crisp with a light carbonation and a a lingeringly bitter and dank hop. It’s an interesting brew, but this just plays to my dislike of the Amarillo hop.

skmikeg (1678) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2016
UPours cloudy bright orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, dank hops, tropical fruits, grassy hops, and light biscuit malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, long finish. Overall, a excllent session IPA that is super refreshing and drinkable.

commonmac (1000) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Can picked up at a Burlington beer store. Consumed with commonshawn, rosskyle, and samadouche outside at the hotel. Light straw golden. Aroma is hop forward with nice pine and floral qualities. Taste is mostly pine and citrus peel from hops. Maintains a healthy malt balance as a backbone. Fits the description of a session IPA perfectly. Almost a hint floral notes accenting the finish. Perfect for a sunny, early summer day.

Can in Burlington with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. Very smooth and easy to drink , a bit oily. Lightly flavored and hopped. Very good for this style.
