COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously: Sweetwater Hash Session IPA.

Cooling out on the dock, jamming tunes and popping tops, waiting for da rod to bend. Gist of the grist is mellow at 4.20% ABV, laying down the base to showcase the blazin’ Amarillo hop hash sunset.

The star of the show here is the hops, specifically the hop hash! We kept the malt bill light to allow the hops to shine through.

We does this sucker with a boatload of Amarillo Hop Hash. Pungent with floral, tropical citrus fruit flavors and the hop hash gives it that one of a kind chewy, gooey, resiny mouthfeel. As the chaser, we are giving it a hefty dry hop to enhance the potent aromas. Ahtanum gives it orange and grapefruit tones, Crystal for a little kick of spiciness, and El Dorado bringing some pear and watermelon characteristics.

Bottle - Pours a clear gold with a smallish head. Tart citrus aroma. Nice mouthfeel for a session IPA. Good flavors, nice citrus with some bitterness in the end. Good session IPA.

Can. Yellow light hazy. Piney nose, some grapefruits, pale malty. Lightish bodied, fruity, piney. Ok session stuff. Not the freshest, or impressive, but nothing wrong either. Bit thin, light.

RichardGretton (4880) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2017
Can. Dark golden beer with a strong frothy head. The aroma is yeasty and mildly hopped, and the flavour is plainly hopped and bitter with yeastiness. Overall an average IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Unde (1211) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 A little hazy golden beer and frothy head on top. Aroma has sweet fruits, passion fruit maybe, grapefruit and lemon hops. More on the sweet side. Taste is sweet with tropical fruits, quite a bit of grapefruit bitterness as well. Great hop bomb. Session drinkability, medium to light body with medium carbonation. Decent session beer.

TET (3323) - Kaarina, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2017
An light orange beer, a head is big and blond. Aroma has grapefruit and citrus, some flowers, fresh and hop oriented aroma. Taste has flowers, citrus, some grain, balanced bitterness, but it's quite mild. Almost medium bodied. Nicely aromatic, the flowers are interesting together with citrus. I like this beer.

It's what you are looking for in a Session. Pretty light, lots of carbonation, surprisingly pleasant bite at the end. Maintains that Sweetwater innocuousness, but that's exactly what you're looking for in a session beer.
