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.

Lukaduke (2652) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pours a deep hazy brown sienna color with a two finger foam. Nose is shredded wheat and a touch of grassy citrus and cardboard, The palate is malty and murky... no real hop appeal except a lot of bitterness that burns a bit on the finish. Not a fan.

Various bottled batches.
Foamy white head tops a lightly hazy soft-blond-hued body, with modest retention.
Fresh, floral and citric hops in the nose are backed by pillowy but well-attenuated malts. Nicely extracted honey aromatics, with crisp acids that neither build up or dominate. Clean, with just a tinge of tropical fruits and plentiful vibrant fruitiness.
Clean again in the flavor (clean in the sense of no diacetyl or flaws), with moderate honey malts backing a citric hop profile that also shows very light nectarine, a touch of pine and some moderate yeastiness (that is not unenjoyable). Kind of a farmy session IPA and pretty enjoyable. Medium bodied, no alcohol or flaws, with a bit of yeast buildup on the fnish turning a bit sour as it progresses (though still pretty subtle and lighter/less problematic than Iím making it sound).

mansquito (4053) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2015
The Sampler, Brooklyn can: pours copper with a white head. Aroma is pine, resin, bit o malts, and some herbs. Doesnít get too bitter in the taste or too heavy yet does not really tate like a session ipa either. Sort of in the middle. Easy drinking and refreshing enough.

Mep3222 (827) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Very citrusy hop aroma and flavor. Taste is light though and almost a watery palate. Not greatly balanced. Has a bit of a piney bitter hop finish as well as a little astringent. Not impressed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a good strong IPA, but unfortunately not enough stood out for me after the fact. I like the hoppy IPA's, and this is a solid offering

bigtaster (791) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 24, 2015
From bottle. Clear amber with some floaties, thick tan head. Pine sap aroma with some caramel. Medium body slightly sweet, pine hop finish, medium bitterness, some grapefruit. Easy to drink, nothing special.

DSG (8324) - Tel Aviv, - APR 21, 2015
Can sample at a tasting at Arielís place. Thanks Ariel. Hazy orange. Aroma of citric and slightly tropical hops, and a grainy note. Flavor is mildly sweetish, with fruity hops and nice bitterness. Medium-bodied.

malrubius (2068) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 8, 2015
Can from Brew Topia. Cloudy orange-red with dense thick head and full lace. Mild spicy orange cake aroma. Toasty fruity nutty honey medium sweet malts with resiny lingering bitterness. Medium light with fine carbo. Complex but not entirely pleasant. Too complex, too resiny, and not refreshing enough for style (IMHO). I donít want my session IPA to try to taste like a DIPA. It doesnít work. Okay.

Last hotel rake of the night. Some what dank nose, must. Taste begins with sweetness, undertones of fruit. Mild bitterness enters, flowery hops. A tad too sweet. Body is medium.

Very hoppy aroma, strong citrus notes. Very big white fluffy head. Very strong hop notes but not over bitter. Orange, lemon, slight grass. Very smooth.
