Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours hazy orange gold with a large white head. Light fruit/citric aroma. Med body, nearly. Flavor is fairly bitter, fruit (suggesting peach), citrus, maybe a bit of pine. Nice caramel backbone - very light. It drinks well, and tho other session IPAs may have more flavor, it is nice. Finishing reasonably bitter.

DYCSoccer17 (3321) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 5, 2014
20 ounce sample on tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Aroma is herbal and a little spicy. Nothing else really. Mildly hazy golden body with a medium, fairly strong off-yellow head present. Starts with a weird papery flavoring, before an earthy, dirty, and mossy hop bitterness takes over. Moderately bitter. Not a fan of this.

Terminus (3242) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Tap at a bar in Albuquerque called back alley pours bright light orange with a pinch of haze. Nose is floral fruity cereal. Flavors follow suit with bright fruity notes. This maybe a pinch old yet still pretty good. Softbody and lite palate. Wish I had this more fresh! HHaslam grainy notes as well long in the finish. Palate is lite and with lots of carbonation. Decent session ipa

Beaver (1297) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2014
16 oz can. Pours c;ear golden orange with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is lots of resiny, piney, slightly dank hops with a little sweet malt and fruit.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with some tropical fruit and resiny, piney, slightly dank hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, an excellent session IPA - my favorite so far.

Trade from theothermatt-thanks again! Deep straw color, persistent lacing. Lightly dank hop nose with some tropical elements. Crisp, dry, dustiness, with some piney hops on the finish. Crushable. >>Update: Just finished the last bit in the glass and it had warmed up considerably and got a big burst of the agave nectar.
