COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long days and warm nights awaken the city. The list of neighborhood festivals is endless. As is the great music that brings us together in parks and parking lots. We brewed our Session IPA to be easy drinking and endlessly refreshing, so you can enjoy every encore. Bright note of fresh oranges and other citrus fruit with a mild body that is crisp on the palate.

Admin Note: Although this is similar to Forcone, Goose Island assures me this beer is a different recipe for large scale release in 2014 evolved from that original batch for Pitchfork Music Festival 2013.

AirForceHops (6575) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 27, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Slight copper color, weak head retention. Nose is light toasted grain and light hints of pine.

Flavor is ok. Toasted grain/ bready malt backbone. Decent amount of citrus. The body and texture is better than a lot of other session IPAs on the market. Doesnt come off watery at all. Obviously nothing in the top tier of the style here but it is respectable.

DuffMan (9746) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2016
On tap @ Royal Oak in Ottawa. Clear orange-tinted gold, receding white head. Light orange peel and faint earthy notes, mild bitterness. Not awful, but nothing Id rush back to.

bunget (882) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2016
Can. Pale yellow body, medium white head with poor retention, no lacing. Pleasant aroma of grass, oranges, acacia honey and some pungent spices, mostly peppercorn. Taste of grassy hops, grapefruit zest, a touch of yeast and some spices. Not bad.

Tranquillity (2035) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2016
Canned from LCBO. Clear body, small white head. Weak aroma, bland. Tastes like a European lager! Big bubbles, weak finish.

lesifflebiere (1747) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2016
Blonde, parfaitement limpide et dore, cercle de mousse blanche en surface. Nez de pamplemousse et de fruits tropicaux varis, le typique pour ce style. Cest une boisson sche, tranchante, pas si amre pourtant, mais seulement mince et axe sur larme un peu terreux, pic et agrum des houblons. Une bonne session, sinon un peu convenue.

Pint can pour. Clear, golden, good carbonation. Light and crisp taste. Underwhelming nose and flavor.

Frothmeister (753) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2016
473ml can. Pours a clear gold with an off-white head. On the nose, resinous hops, caramel malt notes, a strange but not unwelcome note of fresh raspberries, grapefruit, and light peach. Taste wise, caramel malt, apricot, faint almost cherry candy notes, and a light resinous hops that head into watery mineral sided bitterness, with peach and citrus in the finish. Its solid.

Lots of the advertised sweet orange aromas hit my nose on the pour. The body disappoints looking a little thin and watery. It has a nice light refreshing mouthfeel, that has me checking the can to see if it is even 5% abv, and that sweet orange is back this time on the tongue. Not what I would call a robust IPA, but it is quite refreshing and quaffable on a hot day watching the Blue Jays and Red Sox in a tight game.
