COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve created an easy to drink crisp, hoppy ale that is truly pale in color without sacrificing the hop character you expect in an IPA. To make a delicious "sessionable" beer, we selected citrusy centennial hops and an experimental variety from the Northwest U.S.. Look for this unique hop character balanced by the backgroudn nuttiness of Maris Otter malt. Not too filling, not overbearing-just laid back and drinkable!

Bottle from the Folsom BevMo. Pours light orange gold witha a slight creamy white head. Aroma is mostly malt and cooked fruit. Med minus body. Flavor is light malt and light citrus. It is hoppy. It’s decently bitter. Beats the crap out of BL fer sure. My nomination for a day at the lake.

Drake (8503) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of bitter herbal hops and toasted malts. The taste is bitter herbal hops, faint apple and not much else. Thin-medium bodied. Meh.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours translucent gold with white clingy head. Nose is pale malt, tropical fruity hops, and some florals. Tastes medium to light in palate density, not terribly complex, with hopcitrus, earthy pale malt, mild florals and peppery notes. Not as good as the white IPA, but I could drink 6 or 10 of these.

shrubber85 (7571) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle. Orange juice and pine/orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Watery orange juice and lightly bitter pine/citrus peel flavor. Very light body. Bland and unexciting.

marcus (6441) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Pours clear golden with a clinging off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a thin pale malt flavor with light hop bitterness. Yes, it’s an ok session beer.

blipp (6072) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Bottle. Clear gold with a fluffy off white head. Grainy pale malty and floral, medium bitterness and low sweetness. Lighter earthy notes. Quite drinkable, but nothing memorable.

unclemattie (4168) - Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2012
12oz bottle. Clear pale color, thin white head. Aroma of earth, nutty malt, some pine and citrus. Thin bodied. Easy to drink, Session Ale for sure. Tastes of pale malts, some sharp bitterness in the finish. More of an English Style IPA with American hops. (3392)

cheap (4019) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Smell is a little metalic. Nice head on a clear pale lager lookin thing. Taste is up there as far as hoppiness goes but the mild alky attitude makes it easiier to like for this lager lover. Good smooth co2 makes this easier to enjoy. Yes, hop bitterness builds thru the session and continues to medim IPA levels. Very acceptable beer that cariies true ipa flavor without the magnification factor on the attitude. I probably would not clasify this as a terribly on style ipa.

TURDFERGUSON (3951) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Super clean, light suspended dust. Nose is super grainy and vegetal. I honestly did not expect it to be this bad. Flavor is similar but you can actually taste a little bit of centennial hop and that signature saranac metallic yeast. Ugh.
