COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You know those epic days that start with an idea, turn into a dare and end with a great story to tell? This is the beer for those days. Crisp and refreshing like any respectable session ale, but a bit more hop-forward and flavorful than some. Perfect for going with the flow.

Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow with a bubbly white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has some grass with a bit of underlying light citrus and a touch of light grain. Flavor starts with grass and light grain that mellow in to a thin finish.

Strykzone (4812) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pint at Three Kings. This is a nice version of a session IPA. It had a decent malt backbone which too many lack. It also brought some nice lemon grass and black pepper. Nice flavor and complexity.

wchesser (1114) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Clear light gold with pretty persistent lacing. Nose is some light grassy hops. Clean enough, light bready malts. Not sure I’d call this an IPA even in the session category, but fine for what it is I suppose.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a pale gold body that has a faint haze and supports a thin white head. The mild aroma offers up Noble hoppy floral and spicy and slightly earthy notes as well as a bit of malt graininess. The taste starts hoppy with moderate levels of floral to herbal to earthy citrus like hop bitterness and flavor. To midway malts come to the surface that are sweet and malty as well as a bit biscuit like and add a nice depth to the hoppiness. Tasty Pale Ale like session brew.

Huhzubendah (2415) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 28, 2014
On draft at Wyoming’s Rib & Chop House. The beer is clear and pale yellow with an inch of pure white head. The aroma brings grain, lightly toasted bread, lemon drops. Hints of fruit with a biscuit malt presence throughout. Light bodied and quaffable with moderate carbonation. A decent beer.

DrSilverworm (6011) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2014
12oz bottle, from Lukas Liquors in Missouri. Best before 8/15/14. Half hazy golden yellow color. Thin off-white head. Leaves some ropes of lace. Nice zesty grassy aroma. Medium body. Kind of crisp, lightly rough moderate carbonation. Light dry finish. Good bigger bitter taste, lighter sweet. Solid session IPA. Enjoy the unusual flavor profile - more of a zesty floral hop. Plain white bread malt. Solid stuff.

UncleKorm (743) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle poured a pale yellow hue w/ large foamy head and some sticky lacing. Medium citrusy aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are biscuit, straw, and lemon. Light bodied.

TXBadger (1250) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Pours a very nice slightly hazy yellow gold color with white head. Floral notes, some grass, and just a bit of citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes clean and crisp. Very nice example of the style.

dfinney23 (1582) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Pours light gold with a thin white head. Grassy aroma. Light and crisp with a shot of grass and pine in the finish.

Barreras (942) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Pours a clear yellow color with a clean almost invisible aroma. Light malt flavor mixed with a slight hint of fruit. A mellow hop and overall flavor that lends itself to easy drinking. Minimal bitterness on the palate, allowing for easy drinkability.
