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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is crystal clear amber yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down, leaving some streaks of bubbles across the surface, a thin collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of orange citrus are present in the nose along with some hints of gooseberries.
T: Much like the smell, the taste is very much dominated by the hops, which contribute strong flavors of orange citrus and hints of gooseberries along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and somewhat smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. No crispness is perceptible.
O: The hops in this IPA tasted very fresh and the beer was very easy to drink given it's lighter-bodied nature.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 5% abv and 35 ibu.

Appearance: It has a good deep golden colored body with great clarity and some visible carbonation. From the pour it sets up a nice thick white head of foam. This foamy head holds on well and makes tons of cool lacing on the glass.

Smell: The aroma has a sweet mandarin orange like citrus character with lighter malty bread and grainy notes underneath.

Taste / Palate: The flavor is hop forward but now more lemony than the nose suggested and herbal, almost tea like notes pop out on my tongue. Malt character is cracker like and white bready like. It also adds plenty of sweetness. The finish has a short funky herbal bitterness fading off the tongue.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz, Bottled on 4JUN14
A 3.75 - creamy ivory head tops a golden-amber ale
S 4.25 - tropical fruit, orange rind, marmalade, caramel, toasted grain, juicy
T 3.75 - fresh and juicy tropical fruit, toasted grain, caramel, a bit bready, marmalade and toast, orange rind, grapefruit rind, faint pine
M 3 - thinner body, moderate carbonation, finishes mildly bitter; actually more balanced than most of these session IPAs
O 3.5 - one of the better session IPAs I've had, although I'm still not sure how long the craze will last. This did serve a purpose for me this weekend though, so you never know - maybe they will stick around.
