COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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)

500 ml bottled purchased as part of the 8 bottle mixed pack at Gomer’s on State Line in Kansas City, Missouri. The beers opens with a pop. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a billowy three inch snow white head. Head takes a long time to fall. The aroma is faint grass with tangerine citrus with cracker malt. The taste is a mix of the citrus peel from the nose, and a not entirely clean mineral earth and the cracker malt in the back. The hop flavors are faint and flat, not sure on age of this one - the bottle says date is stamped on the neck, though I didn’t see any visible date markings. The palate is light to medium bodied with spritz carbonation and a dry mostly clean finish.

Bottle, citrus and hop nose, but overflowing carbonation. Taste of carbonic acid and not much else. Hope this was just a batch as it is way over carbonated.

More of a lager in appearance than an IPA. Light hints of citrus, more of sprouted grains. Flavored is light and refreshing with a hoppy end. Palate is mixed with lager and IPA, acidic but smooth. Will try again.

Patrickctenchi (4604) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Draft: Hazy, yellow/amber with a small white head. Butterscotch, grain scent. Taste is malty, sweet and buttery, ending with a very light citrus-peel bitter. ...bready... Not bad, just a little outside the norm for the style.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head. Floral aroma. Taste is sweet malt, some breadiness and light grapefruit hop character.

shrubber85 (8772) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Draft. Caramel/light butterscotch and barley malt aroma. Pale yellow with small head. Sweet light butterscotch malt and light orange peel flavor. Good but not a typical SIPA - not sure if my glass was from an older keg.

Pour is a cloudy orange with a huge white head. Aroma is a moderate amount of citrus hops after the head dies down. Flavor is again a ok hop presence with some grainy malt and a thin mouthfeel. Finish is a bit watery but the hops stay around for a while. Ok I guess. It’s a session alright as things are a bit too light all around.
