deyholla (8032) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a near clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is full of pine notes with a good amount of underlying grass and a sweet grain and hay backbone. Flavor begins with a light grassy note but quickly grows in intensity to a bitter pine note with only a slight grain backbone.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a medium white head. A rich floral nose with some citrus. Smooth, light flavors, low bitterness, citrus, grapefruit especially, orange peel. Very nice. Both a big beer and isn’t meant to be.

Draft to taster at Odd Side. Looks alright; light for an IPA though, even if it is a session; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells solid; Simcoe hops. Tastes like it smells with a solid, light mouthfeel. A solid session IPA.
