The inspiration for this beer was to brew a nice ‘session IPA’. We’ve basically achieved this by taking a standard American IPA and ‘brewing it out’ to about half the stats. Dry-hopped with Willamette, Mt. Hood and Cascade hops. ABV- 4.0%, IBU’s- 25, OG – 10.5 Plato (Tall Pilsner)

Tap at the brewery, pours an unclear amber orange with a nice white head and lacing in the glass, the aroma has a decent amount of hops and citrus on the nose, a little bit of fruit as well, the flavor has a slight hop front end with a smooth finish, for 4% it’s pretty nice but it doesn’t have the overall punch of a normal IPA, good for what it is.

Draft at Urban Chestnut. Session IPA. Pours pale and hazed with a white head. Nose is grainy with a moderate hop note. Citrus and hairspray. On tasting, grainy, medium bitterness and grassy. Lacks IPA character overall. Needs more clean hops. Meh.

Draft @ Urban Chestnut A - Pours a hazy amber with one finger off white head. Ok retention/lacing. S - Nice subtle citrus nose. T - Mild malt flavor, citrus hops, particularly grapefruit notes. M - Light bodied. Soft carbonation. Refreshing & drinkable. Mild bitter hop finish. O - Simple, but tasty.

growler... not a big fan of this, bright gold with good carbonation... the nose has a weird bo note that thankfully doesn’t come through on the taste, even though it doesn’t taste great, ok

Strykzone (4912) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Draft at the brewery. Coppery golden with a smallish off white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is very pleasant with citrus hops leading. The flavor is even nicer. Again, citrusy hops. Applesauce, caramel, grain, and a hint of spice. The hops are both US and European, probably Hallertau. There is a bit of grass. The hops light up the tongue nicely. I love the Ow ABV. Nice.

on tap-pours a tight white head and cloudy orange color. Aroma is pine/grassy, light/medium malt. Taste is grassy/pine hops, light malt-bready/maybe some caramel.

tap. notes of bitter grass and juicy grapefruit, with a touch of orange and dry herbs. would prefer a bit more balance to session this all night, as it is, it is a bit too abrasively bitter. but still quite enjoyable to drink, and surely enjoyed the glass of this i had. clean, well made, solid beer. happy to see more session ipas.

tap-pours cloudy orange w,ith quite a bit of haze and a soapy white head with some decent lacing. sweet grainy nose of popcorn (not diacytl) earthy hops, grains and sweet malt (carmel?) . doesnt come across as an ipa to me, but more ofa pale ale. not much hops really hence why i dont think its an ipa. good for what it is. hard to describe.
