COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Session is in. Starting with a blend of west coast hops for a balanced, bitter effect. We close the session out by dry hopping the beer for a nice resiny mouth feel.

milewide (1394) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2014
Very much unfiltered, which I appreciate! Modest aroma of herbal hops, with medium bitterness in aftertaste. $5.99/bomber was a nice surprise.

snoworsummer (1613) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2014
From a bomber. Pours very cloudy orange gold with lots of yeast in there. Thick, bubbly off white head. Tastes mild hops, nutty, not too much bitterness, gourd, vegetable. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like hops, musk, and sweet, nutty citrus.

sonnycheeba (3049) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear gold with creamy off-white head. Aroma is cereal and caramel malts, light grassiness, light toast, and and light vegetal notes. Flavor is dry malts, some hop bitterness, faint grapefruit, and some vegetal notes; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Kinz (3189) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Roughly six month old bottle. Poured a medium amber gold orange, light haze, nice head. Aroma was grassy and citric hop. Flavor was lightly caramel accented malts, and a hop profile that matched the nose. A bit more grassy and floral than expected, would have liked a bit more fruitiness. But not bad.

jflopsu (439) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Pours a light yellow. Has a strong hop aroma that’s a bit smoky. Has a sweet citrus flavor to start with a hoppy and smoky taste. Finshes very smoky.

BVery (5617) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. Mostly clear golden orange pour with a big pillowy white head. Very dank line and grassy hops. Smooth palate, nice hop edge but pretty well balanced. Not bad!

sloth (2401) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Medium sized white head with good retention and lacing. Lightly hazy, gold colored brew. Nose of pine and citrus, lightly fruity and grainy. Almost medium bodied with a nice carbonation and a little juicyness. nice balance of citrusy hops and bready, pale malts. Nice, clean bitterness to round things out. An easy quaffer.

jbruner (1998) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle from February 2013 shared thanks to Tim and Rachel. Pours a hazy gold with bubbly white head. Aroma of bready grain and floral grassy hops. Taste follows, nice balance, definitely sessionable, slight bitterness on the back end.

Gachupines (798) - USA - OCT 27, 2013
Somewhat hazy straw yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is light hops with a tiny amount of citrus. Flavor is rounded hoppiness with a light pine finish. Could use a little more malt to balance and create a fuller body. Hops are actually fairly faint for an IPA and it comes off mildly watery. It also has an odd smokey finish as well. Not bad, definitely sessionable, but doesn’t leave a huge impression. Wife: 3.3

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2013
This brew pours a cloudy dark amber color with a medium foamy white head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of hops, citrus and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of piney hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
