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.

Wittales (698) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 8, 2015
Appearance was clear yellow with white lasting creamy 1 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are light citrus, pils malt, grass and hay. Taste are simple pils sweetness with soft lemon, grapefruit and floral spivey hops. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with light body, an average length soft citrusy finish. Overall, I like it, needs more flavor hops thou.

Bottle from Liz. Pours translucent gold with a slight white head. Aroma seems floral/noble. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly malty with a pretty decent dose of hop - which seems to be grassy/floral. Not all that strong, but decent. Take it to the lake!

Earthy floral hop aroma with bready malt, light caramel. Light golden color slightly hazy with lasting bubbly white head Earthy hop flavor with bready maltiness, well balanced. Light bodied with medium co2, quick hoppy finish. Enjoyable easy drinking ale. Well balanced and interesting enough to ask for another ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

To glass: Slightly skunky smell. Extremely clear. Very light golden color. Long lasting thin, foamy head. Nice stream of tiny bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Tastes of herbal hops w/ light citrus and floral notes. Tart, semi-dry finish. A bit off in the initial smelling...but I like it. A good session beer to hand to a devout Bud, Michelob, Miller (etc) drinker. Very nice appearance but could be hoppier.....and maltier....at least it’s not watered down..LOL

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2015
[Tap] Golden pour with a light haze to it. A decent amount of head and lacing as you drink it. Aromas of crisp hops, biscuit, perfume and some grass. Notes of caramel, dough, biscuit and fresh grassy hops in the flavor. Clean and crisp overall. Creamy mouthfeel is somewhat unexpected, but welcomed.

Poured a 12oz brown bottle into a nonic pint glass at Jed’s party, thanks for sharing. Clear golden colour with sudsy white foam. Super grainy with just a hint of breadiness and sweetness, like a classic Pilsener. I’m not sure how they get away with calling this a Session IPA, though. It really wasn’t very hoppy, not even to the level of most flagship pale ales. Pleasant and drinkable, but overall mild impression. Light body, strong carbonation, dry finish.

Bottle. Pale yellow with large frothy off white head. Aroma of grain and light citrus hops. Light body, lemon, light hop bitterness, and light sweetness.

12oz bottle. Medium gold, white head. Hoppy, citrusy aroma, spruce, grapefruit, mineral. Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Hoppy, fruity taste, citrus, grapefruit, caramel. Balanced and sessionable. (2014-04-06)

Pourse a very pale yellow clear with 1 finger head and heavy Lacing. Prominent toasted malt. Mildly sweet and moderately bitter. Moderate carbonation, a little on the thinner side, but expected with a session. Medium bitter finish. I’d drink this on a warm summer day.
