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.

Sampled from bottle @ ChrisO after GBBF day 3. Clear a bit pale golden color, average sized white head that leaves fair lacing. Smell and taste lightly malts, slightly hops, lightly citrus, lightly zesty, lightly bitter. Average body and carbonation. Hmm I’m not really impressed by this one.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 Clear yellow. White head. Aroma of grain, corn, straw, and grass. Taste is grainy, a little sweet, and just barely bitter. Light-medium bodied and a little dry.

Grassy hop nose and flavor dominate while some light sweet pale malts shine through to balance this palatable and easy-drinking, but non-boring session ale. Just a touch over on the bittering hops. While it may not measure up to my favorite IPA, it’s more hoppy than your average session beer, which is appreciated.

Bottle to glass. Pale yellow color with thick white head. Aroma is grainy, more like a pils. Not much hop aroma, no detectable malts. Taste is mildly hoppy, with some grains and grass. Very mild bitterness. Palate is thin body, medium carbonation. More like a pale lager, with a bit more flavor. Not the best session beer available, there are plenty of others with way more flavor. Never again! Never again!

Very light straw color with thin bright white head. Lightly hoppy aroma. Light flavor as well. No5 bad for a session but I sure would like some more hops.

Bif (1416) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw color with a small head. Aroma of citrus, malt sweetness and grass. Taste of citrus, light malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, light crispness, clean smooth and refreshing. Nicely crafted. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy.

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.

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.
