Where and how: traveling in USA, can 12 oz Braudog (6979) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2018
Aroma aromatic floral hop forward ale. Notes of rose buds, berry, lemongrass, peaches and mango.
Top: large white cap, dense and long lived. Great looking lace. Almost 5/5 if not for color.
Base: hazed amber
Palate : medium bodied, average carbonation and finish.
Taste: pleasant lighter feel . Good hop kick, nice set up. A bit raw, bit floral with softer walls. Drinkable session forward set up. Nice.
Bottle. Nice pour, a melodic and hazy orange color, with a hilly head of white. The aroma is restrained,
but hints at fruitiness. Surprisingly then, the flavors are even more restrained ... just a hint of earthiness,
otherwise completely MOTR, if clean and crisp. (#6896, 1/2018) nimbleprop (9081) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 16, 2017
12oz bottle pours a hazy orange with a ring of white head. Nose is OK, orange, perfume, malt, a little orange soda. Flavor follows orange soda, malt, perfume, floral notes. Finishes dry. Meh. kramer (6989) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear gold body with a thin fizzy white head that vanished pretty quickly. The nose is very very light on the hops with a minimal pale malt base. Not a whole lot of aroma at all really. The flavor is pretty thin as well, but there’s a bit more hops than expected based on the aroma. Just a very minimal bitterness, some lightly tropical fruit and citrusy hops, and a thin minimal pale malt finish. Light bodied and thin with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, this isn’t my idea of a Session IPA. Minimal hops and malt, and yet still 5% ABV? That’s a miss on both fronts. Drake (14447) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Keg at Whole Foods Short Pump. Clear copper, large creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of lemon, orange, pale malt. Taste is bitter pine, orange, pale malt. Medium bodied.

Bottle from Growlers to Go, Richmond. Pours hazy golden amber with an inch of beige head. Very light aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, and light floral notes. Flavor is thin: grapefruit, watered down pineapple juice, some cardboard. Just not a huge fan of the session IPAs since the flavor is so often just sucked right out. obguthr (7013) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Pineapple and tangerine nose. Clear amber, medium yellow head, good lace. Pineapple, lilly, tangerine. Light body, moderate carbonation, fairly bitter. Foxbush (2180) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Draft at the brewery The session IPA poured a hazy amber color with small head and modest lacing. Grapefruit on the nose. The flavor had more citrus hop bitterness. Nicely balanced. The ale had a medium body with soft carbonation. This is easy ale to drink. Great new brewery in Petersburg tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2016
