Notes/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.

---Guest review by my brother---
Appearance - poured into a nonic pint glass, the beer showed a light golden amber color and nice persistent head. Nice lacing while drinking.

Smell - Smells strongly of what I can only call 'weed smell.' Earthy smell with some grass and pine scents.

Taste - Starts with a wheat-like flavor that quickly changes to that 'weed hop' earthy taste finishing off pretty quickly with some flowery notes. Has a sort of 'echo' of the wheat flavor after the finish.

Mouthfeel - The beer is pretty light carbonated and medium-light bodied. Mouth feel is great, doesn't have that particular feeling hops can leave on your tongue that turns many off of IPAs.

Overall it's a very refreshing beer. Light and crisp this is a beer that could quell a summer thirst with a taste that doesn't bore after a bottle or two.

Pours a clear copperish orange, finger of loose head

Smell is cantaloupe, mango, tangerine, earthy rind, bready malt, melon, a bit of a deeper pine note

Taste is pretty big for a session IPA, orange, mango, pineapple, a ton of melon, cantaloupe and honeydew are the first that come to mind, a bit of sweet bready malt, a nice piney bitterness finishes it off

Mouthfeel is medium light, dry and well carbonated

Well this is the best of the Session IPAs I have had, grabbed a single but will certainly go back for a 6er of this.

If you are familiar with Toppling Goliath X Hops series, this tastes almost exactly like the orange to me, just a tad weaker but it is also lighter on the alcohol.

Very impressed
